ensure that your carpet looks great and has a longer lifespanAs far as flooring choices go, carpet has huge benefits! It’s warm, it’s comfortable and quiet to walk on, and it acts as an insulator. These reasons and more are why people continuously turn to carpet for their flooring material of choice. You can ensure that your carpet looks great and has a longer lifespan with just a few tips from our team at Wright’s Carpet and Flooring.

  • Match Carpet with Your Home- If you live quietly by yourself with no kids or pets, then go ahead and spring for the light-colored carpet! However, if you have kids, pets or both, you’re going to want carpet that is more durable, easy to clean and vacuum, and specially designed and formulated to resist stains.
  • Clean & Maintain- Regular vacuuming of your carpet is a necessity to keeping it clean. Dirt trapped in the carpet fibers can actually wear down your carpet, so frequent vacuuming can really help in the longevity of your carpet! You should have your carpets professionally cleaned at least 1-2 times every year, more if there are pets and/or more than 2 people in your home.
  • Ditch the Shoes- Shoes track in dirt, dust, sand and all kinds of other nasty stuff from the outside. Taking off your shoes before walking through your home will not only help it stay clean but will save your carpet.
