Maintaining your quality purchase will repay you by keeping its beauty for many years.
Vacuum regularly. Even in ordinary use, carpets receive a lot of abuse – pounding feet, dirt, grit, dust, oily cooking vapors and spills of all descriptions. By frequently vacuuming with a good machine, you can remove and prevent dry soils from building up to an unsightly level.
- Remove spills immediately.
- Professionally clean as needed. Do not apply stain repellent treatments that contain silicone because they tend to accelerate carpet soiling.
- Keep doormats clean. Exercise preventative maintenance by placing absorbent mats at the most frequently used entrances to your home. Change or launder when these mats become soiled.
- The vacuum cleaner dust bag should be changed when half full.
- Filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should be changed regularly.
To help optimize the aesthetic and performance value of your Kane carpet, remember these effective vacuuming tips:
- Make sure your vacuum’s belt is in good condition – and that the beater actually rotates when in contact with the carpet.
- Height adjustment is correct when the beater contacts the pile enough to lightly vibrate the carpet several inches away from the machine, but not enough to cause a significant slowing of the motor.
- Vacuum across the traffic pattern occasionally, rather than in the traffic direction, to prevent matting.
