Carpet Maintenance And Indoor Air Quality

Posted on Updated on

Many people do not know how to properly care for and clean their carpets, and they are missing a great opportunity to help improve their indoor air quality.

So now you’ve installed new carpeting throughout your home. The technician leaves you to frolic around without a care. The feeling is totally refreshing.  You feel as though you can practically eat off of it. It feels so luxurious through your toes as you walk barefoot through the rooms. You’re not even worried about sleeping on it without linens. You let your baby crawl around aimlessly from room to room. Then as you lie there on the carpet a thought comes to mind. “How do I keep my carpet looking new?” Well the first thing you should know is that you’re not alone with this question. Many people don’t know the first thing about keeping the carpets looking their best. What people don’t understand is that maintenance takes work. That is why we are here. Carpet can last a very long time when it is properly maintained and cared for.  I’ve seen carpets that were 20 years old that looked brand new because they were well cared for!  On the other hand I’ve seen relatively new carpet that looked 20 years old because no one was caring for it properly.
