Periodic spot cleaning may be necessary from time to time. Not all over the counter cleaners are safe for your carpet and may damage the fiber and break down the backing of your carpet over time. We carry spot cleaning products that are safe for your carpet and have been proven to work.
Scotchgard protection is an option after your carpet has been cleaned. This protection will assist in keeping your carpet clean and making spills easier to clean up. Note: It’s a good idea to know what type of fiber your carpet has, Scotchgard will not adhere to some fibers such as Mohawk Smart Strand.

Maintaining your carpet properly is as important as choosing the right carpet for your lifestyle. Carpet manufacturers recommend vacuuming 1-2 times each week with a vacuum certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute. They also highly recommend that your carpet to be professionally cleaned every 18-24 months by an IICRC certified company using hot water extraction. The use of hot water extraction will remove the soil from your carpet that the vacuum does not and keep the dirt from breaking down the fibers in your carpet. Not following these recommendations may void the manufacturer’s warranty.
 

Keep your carpet just-like-new

Carpet may be one of the easiest types of flooring to take care of. Learn how to keep yours looking great over time with a simple care program:

No carpet is absolutely stain proof

Some carpets have stain resistant treatments that improve your ability to clean stains, but not prevent them. Similarly, carpets with soil resistant treatments reduce the rate of soiling, but all carpets require regular care and maintenance. Resist carpet soil and stains with R2X, Shaw's own breakthrough technology.

Stains and soil

The majority of stain complaints are actually soil related. For example, many sugar-based spills, such as soft drinks and coffee, leave a sugar residue after removal. This sticky residue readily attracts soil from ordinary shoe traffic, and the resulting discolored area appears to be a stain.

The same thing happens when spills are cleaned with a detergent solution and the area is not sufficiently rinsed with plain water, leaving a sticky detergent residue. It is important to rinse thoroughly with water and blot dry after removing any spill.

You will want to reference the manufacturor's warranty for specific care requirements.
