Carpet Care Tips

Top 10 Carpet Care Tips

At Stanley Steemer, we want your carpet to look its best 365 days of the year. That’s why we’re sharing these carpet care tips to help you maintain your carpet until our next visit. Following these tips will not only help to keep your carpet looking its best, but it will help to extend the life of your carpet and increase the amount of time between regular, professional carpet cleanings.

  1. Vacuum heavy traffic areas 2 to 3 times a week, and the rest of your carpet once a week.
  2. Use an indoor and an outdoor welcome mat to reduce the amount of dirt that enters your home.
  3. Use Stanley Steemer Professional Spot Remover to treat spots and spills. If it’s not handy, you can make your own spot removing product by mixing ¼ teaspoon bleach-free liquid detergent with 1 cup cold water.
  4. Re-apply stain-resistant protector to your carpet regularly and after cleanings; the original protection naturally wears down over time.
  5. To prevent permanent damage when a stain or spot occurs, act immediately with a spot removal plan. Remember, stain-resistant does not mean stain-proof.
  6. Test spot removal products for colorfastness—before you use them. This is best accomplished in an inconspicuous area.
  7. Test area rugs for colorfastness before placing them over your carpet. Some rugs may bleed their colors.
  8. Vacuum under area rugs periodically. This removes any loose dirt that may be trapped between the rug and your carpet.
  9. Leave the protective blocks in place for a couple days after a carpet cleaning. This helps to avoid any color transfer from your furniture to the floor.
  10. Clean your furniture and your carpet at the same time. A professional cleaning gets rid of the everyday dirt and soil.

Customer Testimonials
Dear Stanley Steemer,
I just wanted to let you know that Scott was on his hands and knees scrubbing to get all the spots up. I was deeply touched and it meant a lot to me. My husband passed away this week, so I was deeply stressed, and worried about the carpets. Not only did Scott take the extra time and care to attend to my concerns, but he was very compassionate towards me. I want you to know that his going the extra mile has helped to make this difficult time easier on me, as I can now make sure my husband's funeral has a nice presentation. Deborah M., Jacksonville, FL
