The Most Important Step in Carpet Maintenance in Riverside CA

The Most Important Step in Carpet Maintenance in Riverside CA


Did you know that the most important part of maintaining your carpet is vacuuming regularly and thoroughly? 

When you walk on soiled carpet, the dirt particles work their way deep into the carpet pile below the surface.  Not only will this make them more difficult to remove by vacuuming, but they will actually damage the carpet fibers.  You should vacuum lightly soiled areas each week, and heavy traffic areas at least twice weekly.  Multiple passes may be needed to extract all the soil, so be sure to go over it at least three times in each direction, i.e., north/south/east/west.  While it may seem like a lot of work, it will help extend the life of your carpet.

Cheap quality machines will remove some of the dirt, but only surface dirt in most cases.  They can’t generally get to the stuff embedded in the pile.  So get a quality vacuum certified through the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI). 

So what kind of vacuum should you use?  The major carpet manufacturers such as Shaw and Mohawk recommend vacuums with a rotating brush or a combination of beater/brush bar, which will agitate the carpet and loosen the soil for easier removal.  Careful though, because thick loop construction found in wool and wool-blend style carpet may be too sensitive to brushing or rubbing of the pile surface and can become fuzzy.
