Carpet Care

“Carpet cleaning is just like exercise!” explains the Carpet and Rug Institute, “If you get into a routine and keep it up, you’ll see great results and feel better for it.”

Floors by George endorses the Carpet and Rug Institute’s steps for carpet care:

  1. Vacuum regularly, from once daily for high traffic areas to once weekly for low traffic spots.
  2. Clean spots and spills quickly.
    • Step one: Absorb spills by blotting with a clean, dry white cloth or paper towel, not by rubbing or scrubbing.
    • Step two: Treat spots or stains from the outside in to prevent spreading.
  3. Stop dirt at the door with doormats and by taking off your shoes. Also, change your home’s air filters regularly.
  4. Professionally deep clean your carpets once every 12 to 18 months.
