Your new carpet and area rugs are gorgeous.
You really should take a couple of minutes to review the manufacturer’s care instructions. After all, you just spent all that money, so what are a few minutes more?
Now, avoid these other mistakes to prevent problems in the future.
Vacuuming Sloppily Because You’re in a Hurry
Even if you have one of the best vacuums for carpets, poor vacuuming technique isn’t going to get the job done.
Dirt will penetrate down to the backing and grind all the fluffiness out of the nap. Just like unwashed hair, your carpet will look dull and flat.
It’s far better to take an extra couple of minutes to push the vacuum more slowly. Overlap passes.
But first, adjust the beater bar to the proper height. This avoids damaging the fibers.
And check the dust bin as it may reduce suction when it’s too full.
