Your carpets are an expensive investment that you want to last if possible. At West Side Carpet Cleaning, carpets are our business, and we want to help you understand how to keep your carpet longer.

Choose the Right Carpet

There are many types of carpet on the market. It’s important that you choose the right type of carpet so that your carpet can last a long time. You should go beyond the way the carpet looks and feels. The carpet you choose should work with your lifestyle. For instance, if you have pets or children, then you should choose a carpet that is stain resistant or wear resistant. These specialty carpets are manufactured for households to resist wear and spills, allowing you to maintain them for years.

Use a Carpet Protector

When you are talking to a salesperson, it’s natural to think that add-ons are unnecessary because it’s likely the salesperson is being paid on commission. However, there are times when a salesperson is simply looking out for your best interests, such as when they suggest carpet protector.

Carpet protector can truly extend the life of your carpet. It helps you vacuum easier, compared to if you don't use carpet protector. By applying a carpet protector on your carpet, you won’t have to make multiple passes to remove lint, dirt or debris. The carpet protector prevents these items from latching onto your carpet piles making cleanup a cinch.

Additionally, carpet protector helps with spills. If you opted not to purchase a spill-resistant carpet, then you should purchase a carpet protector. By having a professional apply carpet protector to your carpet, you won’t have to worry about whether a spill will lead to a stain.

Get into the Habit of Removing Spots Right Away
