Carpet Care - Cold Weather

Whether for home or office, cold weather brings salt, sand and water onto our carpets. So how can we maintain the carpet during these months? Focus on prevention!

Invest in walk off mats to avoid tracking around all that sand and salt all over your home or office. Pay attention to high traffic areas both inside and outside. Vacuum inside frequently to pick up any dirt. Sweep, shovel and use snow blower outside to remove as much soil, sand and slush as possible. This will reduce the amount that even makes it in the door.

Remove visible spots as soon as they appear. The long the spot stays in the carpet the harder it will be to remove, and may become permanent. To find out the best way to clean your carpet you can get the manufacturers instructions and recommendations.

Using these tips along with regular cleaning and maintenance of your carpet by hot water extraction will keep your carpets looking like new!
