  1. Be sure to use a vacuum cleaner with a beater bar, which helps scrub the carpet and raise soil particles up and out of the carpet.
  2. Use “encapsulation cleaning” periodically to remove deep-down particles and oils. This process involves polymers that are applied to the carpet fibers, breaking down dirt and soil particles that are extracted easily by a vacuum cleaner that has beater bars. Quick drying time is a bonus — foot traffic allowed almost immediately.
  3. Use walk-off matting in vestibule and lobby areas so dirt and moisture are removed from footwear before reaching internal carpet or hard-surface areas.
  4. In addition to quickly blotting (not rubbing) a stain, be sure to clean it from the outside of the stain toward the center to prevent spreading the stain.
  5. If you have any snags or loose fibers in your carpet, don’t pull on them because that may damage the carpet. Instead, cut the strand at the height of the rest of the carpet.

And when all else fails and the carpet needs to be replaced, opt for carpet with high-quality, stain-resistant fibers that will last.
