Carpet Care & Maintenance

At Hampton Flooring Center Flooring, we recommend frequent care and maintenance to keep your new carpet looking beautiful and feeling plush. We understand you don’t necessarily have a lot of time to invest in upkeep, but following some simple and easy care and maintenance tasks will ensure the longevity of your carpet.

Establishing a preventative maintenance routine is a great first step. Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet so you don’t track dirt inside the house and use a good quality carpet pad for additional support. Create a care and maintenance routine that also works with your current cleaning schedule. For most of our products, daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer-approved appliance is really all you need to keep your carpet looking and feeling great.

Professional Cleaning

We suggest a professional cleaning or DIY shampoo routine throughout the year. Regardless of what kind of care and maintenance routine you establish for yourself, make sure you’re following the recommendations of your carpet manufacturer to ensure maximum effectiveness and a beautiful end result.

Incorporate a deeper clean for your carpet into your spring cleaning routine to remove any wintery residue or at the start of autumn to prepare your home for each new season.

Stain Removal

Sometimes, your carpet is prone to stains—no matter how careful you are. Fortunately, many of our carpet is sold with stain-resistant technology built right into the fibers!

Before diving in and tackling any spills, stains, or messes on your new carpet, first establish whether the stain is oil-based or water-based. Then, consult with the manufacturer regarding stain removal guidelines. Some stains simply wipe away with a cleaning cloth; others will require a more comprehensive approach. It is always best to consult with the manufacturer before taking further action. If you have Shaw Floors carpeting, we recommend using R2X Carpet Stain & Soil Remover.
