Regular deep cleanings are very important. Not only does it bring back the beauty and add a wonderfully clean smell, it can add years of life to your flooring. Most manufacturers suggest having a deep professional cleaning done at least once every year to year and a half.
Aside from the carpet itself, you also want to make sure you have discussed padding with your flooring professional. Without it, the lifespan of your flooring will be greatly diminished, and it will wear out much quicker than it’s supposed to. Padding also adds the lush underfoot softness that you will be expecting. We can skimp on lots of things in life, but padding for your carpets is not one of them.
And finally, a word about “stain-proof”. While some manufacturers make this claim, we want you to know that there are certain stains that simply will not come out. They are few and far between, but they do exist for any carpet.
