Door mats are recommended at every exterior door to absorb incoming soil and moisture. They're helpful in trapping sand, dirt and other substances tracked in such as oil or driveway sealer, otherwise these substances could be tracked into the home. Periodic cleaning of the door mats is recommended so they don't become sources of dirt themselves
Quality pad is a must under your carpet, particularly on stairs. This may be helpful in extending the life expectancy of your carpet not to mention the comfort it provides.
In order to avoid pile crushing, heavy furniture should be moved occasionally. Floor protectors are recommended under the legs of tables, chairs and other furniture.
To prevent damage when moving heavy furniture with wheels such as pianos, a protective barrier of plywood or cardboard should be placed between the carpet and the wheels.
Vacuuming alone does not remove the substances caused by normal household activities such as cooking vapors and sticky soil. These can cause a gradual dulling of colors. Although the color is not lost, it is hidden under the film that these substances have caused, that's why it is necessary to clean your carpet on regular basis.
The suggested cleaning period for carpet is about one to two years, depending on the amount of traffic and number of occupants in the home.
