Carpet care & maintenance

While our carpets are built to last, they'll still require some care and maintenance to keep them looking and feeling their best. Fortunately, it's easy to incorporate this into your daily routine. Your carpets will thank you!

First, establish a preventative maintenance routine that's easy for the entire family to follow.

Remove outdoor shoes

Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet so you don’t track dirt inside the house.

Use a carpet pad

A high-quality carpet pad adds additional support and softness while absorbing more impact.

Vacuum regularly

Vacuum your carpets frequently using a manufacturer-approved appliance to remove dirt and trapped allergens such as dander and pet hair.

Dealing with stains and spills

No matter how careful you are, you'll encounter the occasional spill. If you have pets or kids (or both!), your carpets are extra prone to them! Fortunately, many of our carpets are made with stain-resistant technology that helps keep spills from soaking through the fibers. Still, you will want to address any spill right away before it can become a stain. Consult our stain removal guide or call one of our dedicated staff at our San Marcos showroom for more information!
