Three Tips to Keep Your White Fibers Pristine

The moment you walk into our carpet warehouse, you're sure to make a bee-line to our wide assortment of soft surfacing materials. While the dark colors can hide kid and pet stains, you'll undoubtedly eye our white and creams with both interest and fear. At our Carpet Giant Houston showroom, we know this look all too well. But, honestly, there's no need to stay away from whites, creams or beiges. So, when next you enter our carpet store, make it a point to get to know this lustrous soft surfacing. Why go through the hassle of eventual heartbreak, you say? Well, thanks to modern-day technological advances in manufacturing, your white fibers can actually stay white. Check out our tips to keep your white fibers pristine, even when the dog decides to mistake the living room for the backyard!

Tip #1: Remove Stains Efficiently

First and foremost, to save any soft fiber surfacing, you'll need to be as efficient as possible. That means, the second you realize the kids have had a Kool-Aid party again, blot the spilled liquids immediately. Soak up the stain with a white terrycloth towel, applying gentle pressure to the area. Whatever you do, don't rub the stain, this will only serve to embed the liquids into the fibers further. Then, use clean water to rinse the spot, making sure to employ a damp cloth as opposed to a soaking wet towel. Finally, apply an approved cleaning product for your carpet installation. If you're not sure the product that's in your hand is appropriate, call us, and we'll figure it out together. 

Tip #2: Regularly Clean Your Surfacing

As the saying goes, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Essentially, we want to highlight the importance of regular household maintenance. If you would like that white fiber surfacing to remain as brilliant as a fresh winter snowfall, you'll need to adopt a rigid cleaning schedule, with particular attention to high traffic regions. So, while you may vacuum and mop your hardwood once a week, you'll have to up your game with white fibers. Typically, to eliminate your need to visit our carpet sales department for a different colored surfacing, consider vacuuming twice a week, increasing the amount to every other day in high foot-traffic areas.

Tip #3: Opt For Deep Cleaning Methods

Finally, hire professional carpet cleaners every 12 to 18 months for a thorough deep cleaning treatment. However, make sure to select only experienced teams to prevent damage to your surfacing. As such, we recommend homeowners not rent a machine to avoid DIY disasters.
