Establishing a preventative maintenance routine is a great first step (pun intended!). Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet so you don’t track dirt inside the house and use a good quality carpet pad for additional support. Create a care and maintenance routine that also works with your current cleaning schedule. For most of our products, daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer’s approved appliance is really all you need to keep your carpets looking and feeling great!

Professional Carpet Cleaning:

Periodically throughout the year, we also suggest either a professional cleaning or giving your carpets a shampoo at home if recommended by your carpet manufacturers guidelines. Regardless of what kind of care and maintenance routine you establish for yourself, make sure you’re following the recommendations of your carpet manufacturer, to ensure maximum effectiveness and a beautiful end result.

Incorporate a deeper clean for your carpet into your spring-cleaning to remove any wintery residue, or at the first signs of autumn to prepare your home for each new season.

Carpet Stain Removal:

No matter how hard you try to be careful, messes can occur on your carpet at any given time. Many of our carpets are sold with stain resistant technology built into the fibers, like Shaw Floors carpet with R2X, which makes cleaning common household stains a breeze. Watch how the R2X technology repels stains and soils here (

Your first inclination when it comes to common household stains like spilled milk, pet accidents or makeup stains, is to just jump right in and clean up the mess. But before you tackle cleaning any spills, stains or soils on your new carpet, first establish whether it’s an oil-based stain or water based stain, then consult our common stain removal guides. Since some messes will just wipe away with a cleaning cloth while others will require comprehensive stain removal directions, it’s best to consult with our common stain removal guide. (
