How To Care For Your Carpet



A copy of the specific warranties on your carpet should be available from the retailer where you purchased the carpet or from your home builder. Stain resist warranties range from 5 to 20 years. ALL WARRANTIES REQUIRE REGULAR PROFESSIONAL CLEANINGS AND IMMEDIATE SPOT REMOVAL


Vacuum your carpet often. This removes damaging dirt that sits down in your carpet, cutting the fibers and causing premature wear. A good rule of thumb is to vacuum once a week for every person living in the home and always before dirt on the carpet is visible.

Professional Cleaning

A complete cleaning should be done by Spot Doctor once per year. Heavy traffic areas require more cleaning and should be cleaned more often. Professional cleaning removes many stains and soil that vacuuming and spot treating have not been able to remove.

Spot Removal

Removing spots and spills immediately is necessary to maintain clean carpet. Any bits and pieces should be removed first. All excess liquid needs to be soaked up with a white towel. Great care must be taken when removing spots so as not to harm the carpet. When carpet is new (first 2 years) it still has plenty of protectants on it and many spots can be removed with just water. All other spots should be removed professionally by Spot Doctor.


Residential carpets are treated with stain and soil resistors during the manufacturing process to protect the carpet. After 2 to 3 years, most of this protectants wears off in high traffic areas. It should then be re-applied by Spot Doctor after a professional cleaning to prolong the life and 'clean-ability' of your carpet.
