Carpet and Vinyl Installation and Repair

Like any textile, carpets require proper care to maintain their original beauty.

There are three main things that you can do to maintain your carpets:

  1. vacuum regularly,
  2. clean spills immediately,
  3. have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year.

What to do when a spill happens ...
  1. Take up as much of the spill as possible using a towel.
  2. Gently press a clean cloth into the spill to remove as much moisture as possible.
    Don't scrub! Scrubbing can damage the fiber and set the stain.
  3. Add warm water, and blot the stain until color stops transferring to the cloth.
  4. If the stain persists, make a detergent solution by adding 1/4 tsp of dishwashing liquid to 1 cup of water.   I recommend Dawn or Joy. No lanolin or bleach
  5. Apply the solution to the spill and let sit for 5 minutes,
    blot the solution up and then rinse with lukewarm water.
    Repeat until all the solution is removed. Soap Residue will attract dirt.
  6. Place paper towel on the spill to absorb the liquid. Weigh down the towels and let sit overnight.
  7. Once the carpet is dry, vacuum to restore the texture.
  8. If the stain persists, repeat step 3 through 7.
