- PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION – Aside from moving furniture, you can ensure things run smoothly during carpet installation by removing all breakable items from rooms receiving service. In addition, vacuum the old carpet thoroughly to minimize the airborne dust and particles before the installers arrive.
- DURING INSTALLATION – Your professional installers will arrive with the knowledge, tools, and supplies to lay your new carpet. We will need access to electrical power outlets and an area to place their electrical tools, so please be prepared. After the old flooring and carpet cushion have been pulled up, we will vacuum the subfloor before the new carpet is laid in order to minimize dirt and dust.
- AFTER INSTALLATION – In the months following carpet installation, you may notice some shedding or sprouting. This is normal and won‘t affect the carpet‘s appearance or longevity in any way. Shedding is when loose fibers become undone from carpets that have recently been laid.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR CARPET:
Cleaning your carpet is easier than you think. All it takes is the right vacuum, cleaning products, and a little know-how. Here are a few tips on removing common stains the right way:
- Treat the affected area immediately.
- For a food spill, gently remove as much solid material as you can. Add water and blot. Using the highest suction function, vacuum back and forth until completely clean.
- If you need a spot removal solvent, we recommend using products approved by The Carpet and Rug Institute of America.
- If stains remain after cleaning, moisten tufts in the stained area with 3% hydrogen peroxide and let stand for one hour.
KEEPING YOUR CARPET BEAUTIFUL
Follow these simple tips to keep your carpet’s color and texture looking fresh:
- Adjustable Height: Use the highest setting where appropriate.
- Efficient Airflow: Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction.
- Large Wheels: A vacuum with large wheels is easier to move across soft carpeting.
- Depending carpet type, you will want to use a vacuum with a rotating brush, a beater bar, or suction only.
- Keeping traffic and other use factors in mind, consider professional cleaning every 12 to 18 months.
- Remove heavy furniture dents by stroking the dented area with the edge of a coin. You can also use a hair dryer or a steam iron, but be very careful not to touch the carpet with the iron.
