Carpet Beauty & Warmth
Carpet adds beauty, warmth, safety, sound reduction and style to any room. Today, there are thousands of colors to consider. It can be a neutral foundation or a focal point with bold colors and dramatic patterns and textures.
Carpet is still a universally popular floor covering, and today's carpets are remarkably durable.
So, where do you start? One of the first options to consider is what mood you want to create and how the room will be used.

Are You Looking for a Formal or Casual Style?
Does the room have high foot traffic? Let's start with construction and texture because that affects how the carpet will appear. Texture refers to the surface appearance of the carpet. Texture is created by the size of the yarns, the twist of the yarns, and the surface structure of the finished carpet. Some textures create patterns. Well constructed carpet is important for durability. In fact, construction has as much or more influence on performance than the fibers or other materials that make up the carpet.
Tip: Purchase the best carpet that you can afford. Carpet
offers an economical alternative to many other flooring
choices, and installation costs are typically less than hard surfaces.

Carpet Care
Use Entrance Mats
Place floor mats inside and outside entrances to trap soil before it is tracked into your home.Vacuum at least once a week! You can't vacuum too often. When dirt and dust are left in a carpet, they become gritty, sharp particles that grind down the pile of the carpet. Using a vacuum with a beater bar or rotating brush will loosen the dirt making it easier for the vacuum to remove soil. Change the disposable bag or empty the vacuum often. Carpet with thick loop pile construction (Berber) may be sensitive to brushing, rubbing or scrapping of the pile surface which may cause fuzzing and pile distortion. It is recommended that vacuums with suction action only be used on these styles.
Note: Carpet sweepers and electric brooms are useful for picking up crumbs and surface soil, but it's important to know that they will not deep clean.
Clean Spots & Spills Immediately
For best results, give prompt attention to spots and spills. Use a spoon or dull knife to remove solid materials. Blot up liquid spills with a white towel. Never rub, scrub or use a brush. This may cause damage to the carpet fibers. Use a cleaning agent and procedure appropriate for the type of stain being removed. Apply all cleaning agents to the cloth rather than directly to the stained area to avoid saturating the carpet when spot cleaning. Work the stain from the outside in to prevent spreading. Deep stains might require repeat cleaning because they can "wick" back up after initial cleaning.
