First, throughout the year, vacuum frequently. This is the best way to keep your carpet looking great all year long! This way you won’t be rushing to do any major work just before Thanksgiving or Christmas. If you’ve been keeping up with the vacuuming, the carpet will already look great!

Next, an annual cleaning by a carpet cleaning professional is always a good idea. This helps to pick up dirt and debris that inevitably get missed by the weekly vacuuming. Maybe this is something you want to wait until after the holidays to do, in case stains occur. That’s entirely up to you!

Then, when stains happen, as they will, remove them as quickly as possible. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions for stain removal. Also refer to the Carpet & Rug Institute’s Stain Removal Guide for instructions on removing stains quickly and correctly.

Finally, a good cushion (pad) will act as a shock absorber and transfer weight and wear from the carpet to the pad. This will extend the life of your carpet. Always use a pad specified by the manufacturer.
