PRESERVE THE BEAUTY AND PROLONG THE USEFUL LIFE OF YOUR CARPET AND UPHOLSTERY
No matter how dynamic the material used, how superb the construction, or how exceptional the performance test results... any carpet or upholstery that is not properly maintained will not age gracefully.
Tracked-in soil is the biggest problem for carpet, because it can spread throughout the house. If you can keep tracked-in soil to a minimum, you can reduce dirt build-up and ultimately decrease the frequency of professional cleaning.
We recommend professional cleaning of carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture once a year.
We use carpet cleaning agents and detergents that deep clean and remove fiber-damaging particles.
HERE IS TOP ADVICE FROM THE EXPERTS AT SB RESTORATION
Entry mats collect dirt and absorb moisture. Place them adjacent to high traffic areas and entryways, but not on top of the carpet. Mats should be maintained by weekly vacuuming, shaking, and cleaning.
Regular vacuuming with properly maintained, quality equipment, is the single most important step in extending the life and appearance of carpet.
Use a top-fill vacuum with brush agitation OR a canister with a "power head" that has brush agitation.
Soil should be collected in the vacuum's recovery system (avoid re-entry into the air which can contribute to indoor air pollution).
Make sure your vacuum has a high efficiency HEPA filtering system, OR a filter bag in your vacuum equipment.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD A CARPET BE VACUUMED?
Proper vacuuming frequency should be planned according to traffic patterns. Here is a guideline for establishing your own schedule.
APPROPRIATE VACUUMING FREQUENCY
Read labels and tags carefully, follow manufacturers recommendations for care and maintenance.
Every time your upholstery is professionally cleaned, be sure to have fabric protectant applied to extend its beauty and useful life.
Make sure to hire only industry trained professionals who have experience with your type of upholstery (cotton, leather, linen, etc.).
We recommend your carpeting, rugs, and upholstered furniture be professionally cleaned at least once a year.
STAINS AND SPILLS
Before treating a wet stain, blot the area with a white cloth or paper towel; when dry, scoop up all the loose material and vacuum any residual particles. Test your cleaning solutions in an inconspicuous area of the carpet before using to determine if discoloration will result from their use. DO NOT apply cleaning agents directly to the carpet. Apply cleaning agents to the stain by dampening a white, absorbent cloth or paper towel and blotting the stained area. Never rub, scrub, or use a brush on the area being cleaned.
Work from the outside to the center of the stain to prevent spread of the stain or formation of a ring. Always allow cleaned area to dry thoroughly.
Groom the cleaned area by hand brushing or vacuuming to restore the pile's original appearance. Sometimes stains persist and reappear after you think they are gone. This is called wicking. Repeating the procedure several times usually eliminates them for good.
Absorbent towels, weighted with a heavy colorfast object, placed over the cleaned area will help to absorb moisture and remove the remaining stain as it wicks to the surface.
