Best Carpet Cleaner Tips

Caring for your flooring is a necessary part of home maintenance. At Carpet One in Wilmington, NC, we want to make sure you have the knowledge to be able to care for your carpet in the best way. While sometimes your carpet will need professional cleaning or repair, the best carpet cleaner could be you! There are many things you can do to prevent further damage and maintain the freshness of your carpet.

Carpet Maintenance Tip

Dampness and humid weather can cause a carpet to buckle or ripple. But, when the weather dries up, the ripples will disappear. Placing a dehumidifier in a humid room will help speed up this process. Another cause of carpet buckling is improper stretching during your carpet installation. In this case, you will need to have the carpet re-stretched.

Best Carpet for High Traffic

High impacts from walking or heavy furniture can crush carpet fibers. While every carpet crushes to a certain degree, you can easily alleviate this. Using cups or furniture glides under furniture legs or occasionally moving the furniture around will give heavy traffic areas a break and will also minimize crushing.

Sun Damage to Carpet

Direct sunlight is not a carpet’s friend. Once a carpet loses its color due to fading, there is no way to revive it. So, the best thing to do is to limit your carpet’s exposure to the sun by closing your blinds or curtains. This protects carpet from ultraviolet light and ensures a fade-free surface.
