How to Prevent Carpet Fading

Preventing carpet fading is a common struggle that many homeowners have, so it's important to do as much research as possible in order to help prevent this issue and to prolong the life and beauty of your new carpet. Here are a few tips for those looking to keep their carpet fresh and beautiful for many years to come!

  1. Area Rugs/Runners: Not only are area rugs and runners a great way to beautify your home, they also help to protect your carpet from stains and fading. It is important to use these in the right areas, so make sure you use them in high traffic areas such as hallways or any other areas you or your family walk on frequently.

  2. Vacuum Frequently: There are two types of people on this earth: those who love vacuuming and those who hate it. No matter which category you fall into, it is important for your carpet to be vacuumed as frequently as possible in order to maintain its newness for as long as possible. Vacuuming helps to keep your carpet looking fresh because it removes the dirt and debris that cause your carpet to look dingy and old.

  3. Clean Your Carpet: Professional carpet cleaning is a huge part of ensuring that your carpet stays fresh and new. Many homeowners put this off, thinking that their carpet looks fine so it doesn't need to be cleaned. However, experts recommend having your carpets professionally cleaned every six months to one year in order to keep it looking beautiful and new.

  4. Use Recommended Products: Be careful about using products that claim to help deodorize, protect, or refresh your carpet. The most common product that promises all of these is carpet powder. But,carpet powder can damage your carpets when not used appropriately. While its intentions are good, if you overuse it or don't get it all vacuumed up, the next time you go to have your carpets professionally cleaned the powder will leave a white residue on top of the carpet. Not a good look!

As you can see, there are many ways to keep your carpets clean and looking new. Flooring is an important investment in your home, so it is important to do everything you can to keep it looking new and fresh.
