One of the great things about the Carpet and Rug Institute is that it frequently promotes the best ways to care for and maintain carpet. In this post, we will look at carpet vacuuming – why it matters.
Vacuuming Makes a Big Difference
Vacuuming is one of the best ways for you to take care of carpet and get the most out of your investment in a carpet. In fact, vacuuming is also one of the easiest ways to take proper care of carpet.
CRI President Werner Braun often makes the comparison that you wouldn’t buy a new car and not change the oil. Vacuuming carpet is very similar to changing the oil in a car in that it is an integral part of regular maintenance and keeping it in tip-top shape.
Regular vacuuming removes soil and dirt that can damage the carpet fiber and therefore reduce the overall life expectancy of the carpet. Maximizing the life of carpet also maximizes its sustainability, so not only will you have a fresher home, you will also be doing something positive for the environment. The less carpet that must be thrown out the better!
Vacuuming frequency is another vital aspect to remember in terms of carpet care as certain areas of carpet should be vacuumed more frequently than others. CRI recommends vacuuming daily in high-traffic or pet areas, twice weekly in medium-traffic areas, and weekly in light-traffic areas. If all else fails, err on the side of vacuuming too much.
Lastly, the vacuum you use is important, too. CRI certifies vacuums through the Seal of Approval program, which tests vacuums on the criteria of soil removal, dust containment, and surface appearance change. As a CRI certified provider, Carpet Keepers ensures our vacuums are up to standard as vacuuming is part of each and every service we provide.
