Take Good Care of Your Carpet!
The care you give your carpet today will affect it's life and beauty more than any other single factor. Vacuum your carpets at least once a week. Most carpet dirt is loose and removable with regular vacuuming.
When vacuuming, go with the pile grain to remove surface soils and then against the grain to remove deeper, embedded particles.
Rotate your furniture occasionally to prevent premature carpet wear and soiling in regular traffic areas of your house.
The most important thing you can do in caring for your carpet is vacuuming thoroughly and frequently, especially in high-traffic areas. Walking on soiled carpet works soil particles deep into the pile where they not only damage the fibers but are far more difficult to remove. Frequent vacuuming removes many of these particles before this happens. Always use a good vacuum cleaner. The less expensive models pick up only surface dirt and do little to prolong the life or beauty of your carpet. Queen's Carpet Care recommends that you have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year to remove the deep down dirt, oils and stains that are built up over time. However, if there has been a good deal of traffic they should be cleaned more often. By following these steps your carpet will look better and last longer.
