How do I maintain a carpet runner?

There are simple, but significant steps you can take to maintain and prolong the life or your stair runner, hall runner or any carpet in your home:

  • It is advisable to remove shoes prior to entering carpeted areas, significantly cutting down on soil.
  • Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum – using a well functioning vacuum with good suction and emptied when only half full. Do not use an aggressive “beater bar” – rather, rely on good suction.
  • Keep adjacent hard-surface floors as clean as possible. Soil on hard surfaces is carried onto the carpet.
  • Have your carpet professionally cleaned on a regular basis.

Preventing and removing soil is the key to maintaining any floor surface.  Similar to any surface – soil is abrasive and causes damage to carpet fibers, which results in appearance changes. These appearance changes are commonly referred to as wear, but are actually caused by damage.
