How often should I vacuum?
I have been out shopping for carpet and different stores have different information about fibers and what type of carpet to buy. What is the truth, how do I buy durable carpet?
Regardless of which fiber you choose, the construction of the carpet is what makes carpet durable. For durable, heavy traffic carpet you want to look for a dense construction (you don’t want to be able to easily see, or feel the backing of the carpet through the fiber). Shorter pile heights perform better in heavy traffic areas (like entryways, stairs, halls, playrooms) so choosing a pile height with a ½ of an inch or less will be more durable. If choosing a cut pile carpet, a tighter twist will be more durable than a looser twist. If choosing a Berber carpet, the smaller tighter loops will be more durable than the larger looser loop.

What type of vacuum should I buy?
My carpet is going to be glued down and I’m bothered by the odors from the adhesives, what should I do?
My carpet was soaked due to a flood, what are my options?
Extract the water professionally and have drying fans set up and operating, ideally, within 24 hours. It’s best to use a professional that is trained in water restoration in order to ensure carpet, pad & sub-floor are completely dried. If the carpet is contaminated with mud, sewage, or other contaminants, it is recommended to properly dispose of carpet and pad.

What do I need to know about carpet fiber and mold?
Anything can mold as long as there is moisture or a food source. However, carpet that is kept clean and dry, including carpets made of natural fibers such as wool, shouldn’t have a mold problem.
