Preventative Carpet Maintenance

Follow these preventative maintenance steps to keep your Empire Today® Carpet looking newer, longer. Regular vacuuming is the most important step in caring for your new Carpet. Change the direction you vacuum occasionally. This helps stand the pile upright and reduces matting.

High-Traffic Areas

Pay special attention to high-traffic areas. Foot traffic can push soil particles deeper into the pile. This makes them more difficult to remove. It can also damage fibers.

  • Vacuum twice a week
  • Vacuum traffic lanes daily

Lower Traffic Areas

Lower Traffic Areas

  • Vacuum once a week
  • Vacuum traffic lanes twice a week

General Preventative Maintenance Tips

Take the following steps to help prevent excess wear on your Carpet.

  • Place mats at the entrances of your home’s Carpeted areas - this can help absorb moisture and help prevent soiling.
  • Relocate heavy furniture periodically to help prevent permanent pile crushing.
  • Place floor protectors under any heavy pieces of furniture to help reduce pile crushing.
  • Use Window Treatments from Empire Today to help protect your Carpet against direct sunlight and fading.
