Daily care & maintenance
The Bram Flooring team recommends frequent care & maintenance to keep your new carpeting looking beautiful & feeling plush. We know you may not have a lot of time to invest in the upkeep of your floors, but if you simply follow a few easy care & maintenance steps, you’ll be able to extend your carpet’s longevity.
You can reduce the amount of dirt and debris that gets tracked into your home by placing welcome mats and small area rugs at all your home’s entrances. A few dollars invested in a mat can prevent a lot of dirt getting ground into your carpet’s fibers.
Invest in a good vacuum cleaner to remove loose dirt & dust from your carpet’s fibers. Leaving debris sitting on carpet can lead to it getting ground down by foot traffic. Choose from lightweight, hand-operated vacuums with a variety of attachments or even unattended robotic vacuums that can do the work while you sleep!
Dealing with spills & stains
If you want to avoid stains, treat spills as soon as they happen. The longer you wait, the tougher the stain will be to remove. You should immediately blot up as much of the liquid spill or solid debris as you can using a clean, dry cloth. You can also lightly dampen the cloth if you need a little extra cleaning power.
Whatever you do, never rub or scrub a spill, as this will only push it deeper into the fibers. Don’t use hot or cold water, only room temperature or warm. After the spill has been cleared and the area dried, vacuum to restore your carpet’s texture & appearance.
