Carpet Care And Maintenance

Carpet Care & Maintenance tips to help keep your carpet looking its best!

Carpet Care and Maintenance

At Choice Floor Center, 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.

Preventative Maintenance

Establishing a preventative maintenance routine that works with your lifestyle!  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.  Incorporate a carpet care and maintenance routine that also works with your current cleaning schedule. For most of our products, daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer’s approved appliance is really all you need to keep your carpets looking and feeling great!

Professional Cleaning

Occasionally throughout the year, we suggest either a professional cleaning or giving your carpets a shampoo at home if recommended by your carpet manufacturers guidelines. Regardless of what kind of care and maintenance routine you establish for yourself, it’s really important that you’re following the recommendations of your carpet manufacturer, to ensure maximum effectiveness and a beautiful end result.

You can also opt to use spring-cleaning as an optimal time for a deeper clean for your carpet, which will remove any wintery residue, or at the first signs of autumn to prepare your home for each new season.

Stain Removal

Life can be messy and messes can fall onto your carpet over a period of time. Did you know that many of our carpets are sold with stain resistant technology built into the fibers? Some Shaw Floors carpets come with R2X, which makes cleaning common household stains a breeze.  Watch how the R2X technology repels stains and soils.


When it comes to common household stains like spilled milk, pet accidents or makeup stains, you’ll probably want to jump right in and clean up the mess. Take a second to first establish whether it’s an oil-based stain or water based stain, then consult our common stain removal guides. Since some messes will just wipe away with a cleaning cloth while others will require comprehensive stain removal directions, it’s best to consult with our common stain removal guide.

Speak with one of Choice Floor Center’s flooring representatives about Shaw R2X Stain and Soil Carpet Remover, which boast the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval among other certificates and seals of approval. We sell this product at our store location, but you can also order additional bottles online.
