One of the best ways to ensure that your carpet flooring has the longest possible lifespan is maintenance. Caring for and maintaining your new floors can mean the difference between your floors lasting 10 to 15 years.

Everyday maintenance and proper care can be essential no matter what happens to your carpets. From simple vacuuming to getting a wet vacuum to go over it once a month, here are some tips to help care for your flooring.

What are the best ways?


Laying down a barrier mat in high-traffic areas, such as in front of doorways like your front door, can help prevent wear. A few well-placed rugs can also help prevent wear, as long as they're still removed and cleaned.

After your flooring company has installed your carpets, you can begin vacuuming your carpet as soon as it has been laid and at regular intervals, even if it doesn't look dirty. When you accidentally spill coffee on your cashmere-colored carpets, it's best to ensure it is dealt with immediately.

You can invest in a wet vacuum if you're truly up to ensuring your carpets stay in their prime. A wet vacuum is just like a regular one, but you can use a mix of carpet cleaning solution and water to wash your new floors to remove stains and smells.
