Proper vacuuming is the easiest and most effective way to keep your carpet clean. Removing loose soil while it is still on the carpet’s surface is important so that it is not walked into the carpet pile. Regular vacuuming can help reduce crushing, the loss of pile thickness due to foot traffic.
Carpet and area rugs throughout the home should be vacuumed at least once a week. High traffic areas should be vacuumed twice weekly, and if you have pets, you may need to vacuum some areas daily.


In the flooring industry today, there are so many different fibers and textures which require different types of maintenance.
