Did you know that your Karastan carpet can last for generations? However, to do so, you'll need to ensure correct flooring care, so your soft surfacing can maintain its magnificent appearance. Well-known for its resilience, superior quality, and exquisite beauty, Karastan carpets and rugs will bring comfort to your home and family. For decades of enjoyment, simply following our basic Karastan carpet vacuuming care guide, brought to you by our on-site professionals at The Flooring Center.
The importance of vacuuming
While it ensures your soft surfacing keeps looking lovely and enhances its natural appearance, vacuuming also prolongs the lifespan of the fibers. As such, it is of utmost importance to maintain a regular care and upkeep schedule, so your carpets remain as stunning as the day you had them installed.
Vacuuming according to fiber types:
High Pile Fibers: Use the highest setting on your vacuum. Vacuums with sealed or concentrated suction should be avoided. Ideally, your model should have big wheels that allow it to glide with ease across the fibers.
Long Pile, Casual Frieze or Thick Loop: With these kinds of flooring, ensure the beater bar is disengaged. Only suction should be used.
Other Material Types: If you have fibers that are not categorized as the above mentioned, then you can use a vacuum with a beater bar or rotating brush. Keep in mind that the brush or bar should only just lightly come into contact with the surface of the carpeting. Always check bars regularly for gouges and build-up that can cause damage to the surfacing. If you’re not sure about what kind of fibers you have or height setting you should use, then choose a small, inconspicuous section of the flooring to test your vacuum.
Quick cleaning is essential!
Lastly, although manufactured to be stain-resistant, liquid and food mishaps should be cleaned up immediately. Discoloration can happen over time if stain-creating substances are not addressed promptly. Keep your Karastan carpet in tip-top shape but not only vacuuming regularly but also checking it daily to see if it needs cleaning.
