Place glides under heavy furniture to combat crushing. Rotate furniture to give carpet a rest.SUNLIGHT
To prevent fading, avoid long hours of direct sunlight on carpet. Close blinds or shades periodically. Select a lighter colored carpet in sun-drenched rooms to minimize fading.TRAFFIC
Change traffic patterns. Rotate furniture so that people have to alter their path through the room.OUTSIDE DOORS
Place doormats inside and outside of exterior doors to minimize tracking in dirt.RIPPLING
High humidity and heat can cause wall-to-wall carpet to ripple. If this happens, call a professional to re-stretch it with a power stretcher.ANIMALS
Vacuum often and use deodorizer on previous "accident" sites. Some animals will have repeat "accidents" because they're drawn to the smell.CIGARETTE AND OTHER BURNS
Snip off the damaged fibers. Blot with a soapless cleaner, like dry cleaning solvent or denatured alcohol. (Check first to make sure the cleaner doesn't discolor the carpet).
