3 Steps for Proper Carpet Care from the CRI (Carpet & Rug Institute)

No one wants dirt and soil tracked into their home, so why would you? Take care of your carpets with these quick steps. Make sure that you vacuum regularly and have your guests take off their shoes. Not only will Seal of Approval cleaning products help keep your carpet looking great, they can also help meet the warranty requirements of the carpet manufacturer. Below are three simple steps to keeping your carpet clean and looking great.

  1. Vacuum at the right frequency with a CRI-approved vacuum.
  2. Clean spots and spills quickly with products that do not damage the carpet or cause it to resoil more quickly.
  3. Professionally deep clean your carpets at least every 12 to 18 months to remove embedded dirt and grime. For premium cleaning benefits, ask about our 6-month cleaning programs.

Stop Dirt at the Door

Preventing dirt and grime from getting on the carpet in the first place is a great way to start keeping it clean. The following helpful hints can stop dirt in its tracks.

  • Use mats: Outdoor and indoor mats or runners can reduce the amount of dirt that enters the house.
  • Take off your shoes: You can save wear and tear on carpet by asking everyone to take their shoes off before entering your home.
  • Change your air filters: Change air filters in your heating and air-conditioning systems as recommended by the manufacturer's directions. The more dust and particles removed by the filter, the fewer that fall onto the carpet.
