It’s that time of year again.
You know, the new year, new you time of year. And as you create new resolutions for your health and wellness, we ask that you consider the resolutions of your carpet. There are 4 of them to be specific.
Read the warranty.
You’ll be surprised what you may find within the warranty of your carpet. Likely you’ll find things like coverage, limitations, exclusions, replacement conditions, and most importantly, professional cleaning requirements.
*That’s right, you have to have your carpet cleaned professionally to maintain the warranty.
Although we recommend a professional cleaning every year, it’s important to perform routine maintenance on your carpet (vacuuming). Regular vacuuming can remove items like dust and dander, that if not cleaned, can lead to stains or the creation of mold.
Give it a break.
Think about the most trafficked areas of your home; specifically in the Winter months. Are you giving your carpet a break ever? When you come into your home with snow, salt, and other bits of dirt and grime, that can have a negative impact on the quality of your carpet (requiring more cleaning and upkeep). So, give it a break. One solution is a plastic carpet cover for those areas receptive to the Winter elements.
Don’t wait to clean.
If you spill wine, coffee, or make some sort of mess on your carpet, don’t wait to clean it up. Many times, carpet can be salvaged from even the worst of messes, if it’s only addressed right away. If you have a mess, either clean it yourself right away or make sure you contact a professional immediately.
As you launch yourself into 2019, be sure to remember the resolutions of your carpet.
It’s a new year, new carpet kind of thing.
