General Cleaning

  • Vacuum your carpet regularly to prevent soil from embedding itself in the pile
  • Keeping traffic and other use factors in mind, consider professional cleaning every 12 - 18 months
  • Use scissors to clip sprouts and snags. Do not pull on them - you might damage the carpet
  • Remove heavy furniture dents by stroking the dented area with the edge of a coin

Cleaning Spills

  • For a food spill, gently remove as much solid material as you can with a spoon. Add water and blot, using detergent sparingly if needed. Then, using the highest suction function, vacuum back and forth, adding more water to the stain as you go until completely clean.
  • If you need to spot removal solvent, use a product approved by "The Carpet and Rug Institute of America". Apply several drops to a clean cloth and blot the carpet in an inconspicuous area. If you notice a change in carpet colour, consult a professional carpet cleaner.
