Keeping your carpet clean and beautiful with proper maintenance can preserve the life of your carpet. Most wear on carpeting is caused by dirt; oily soils attract more oily soils. Carpets should be thoroughly vacuumed about once a week, with heavy traffic areas being vacuumed more often. Many vacuums feature a rotating brush, also known as a beater bar. This feature can be damaging to certain types of carpet and care must be taken particularly around seams as small strands or fibre can be pulled, creating a run in the carpet. When a spill occurs, time is of the essence. Look at your local grocery or hardware store for stain cleaning products designed especially for carpets. Using these products can extend the life of your carpet. An annual deep carpet cleaning will also help extend the life of your carpet.
NOTE: Dark discolouration around the perimeter of rooms and heating registers is common (carbon materials can settle on the surface of televisions, carpets and magnetic seals, such as refrigerators). The burning of scented candles can also contribute to the carpet staining. Stains resulting from normal wear and tear or improper maintenance are excluded from warranty.
