CARPET CARE & MAINTENANCE

At Custom Floors, we understand you don’t have a lot of time to invest in upkeep. But following some simple and easy care and maintenance tasks will ensure the longevity of your carpet.

Regular carpet care & maintenance

Start by investing in doormats and placing them throughout your home. Have friends and family members use them when entering your home. You should also ask visitors to remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet. It’s important to minimize the amount of dirt tracked onto your flooring, as dirt particles can damage carpet fibers. Here are some other simple preventative maintenance tips:

 

  • Place carpet protectors underneath all furniture legs.
  • Use a quality carpet pad to add extra softness and support.
  • Take care when moving heavy furniture.

 

While keeping preventative maintenance in mind, you should also develop a regular care routine. This should include regularly vacuuming your carpet using a manufacturer-approved appliance. If your carpet experiences light to medium traffic, vacuuming it once or twice a week should be sufficient. If it experiences heavy traffic, however, you may want to vacuum more frequently.

Carpet stain & spill removal

No matter how careful you are, your carpet will likely fall victim to a spill or mess of some sort, especially if you have children or pets. If this happens, don’t panic! Many of our carpets are sold with stain-resistant technology built right into their fibers, making it easy to clean common household messes. Still, it’s important to address spills the right way.

First, determine if a spill is water- or oil-based. You can use a clean cloth to absorb some; others will require a more comprehensive approach. For these, you’ll want to take a look at our common stain removal guide.
