Choose carpet for easy maintenance and more

There's a good reason why it’s such a popular choice because a carpet installation will give your home beauty, warmth, richness, and an abundance of benefits. With a wide assortment of styles, textures, designs, and colors, and functions that provide safety, the right rug will transform your home and your life. Depending on product quality, a correct installation, and superior maintenance, your rug can last 20 years.

Rugs are relatively low maintenance, but, like anything, the better you take care of it, the longer it lasts. Vacuum regularly, have a professional deep cleaning every 12 to 18 months or as your warranty specifies, and put mats at entrances. At A-1 Flooring Welland, your carpet store in Welland, ON, we’ve taken it a little further by adding some additional, specific ideas.

Pet-friendly carpet maintenance

Over 57% of Canadian households have pets. Our pets can track in dirt, mud, and water. If the pet also sheds, there will be animal fur and dander with which to handle. We recommend vacuuming regularly and keeping in mind that deep steam cleaning scrubs the fibers to eliminate trapped particles.
Consider doing this more frequently to clean up embedded dirt and dander, and if your pet has an accident, wipe it immediately and use a cleaning product recommended by the manufacturer. If you have many pets, there are even carpet options you can choose which are made to be extra durable and pet-friendly, be sure to ask our flooring experts when you visit!

Protecting your carpet

Whether it’s a rug or upholstery, any soft surface can be prone to fading or even changing colors slightly. If your room is in direct sun, be sure your window coverings are adequate to protect from sun and heat. If you’re away most of the day, you might even think of motorizing them to adjust from afar during the sun’s strongest hours.
