Residential Carpet Information

When a homeowner purchases carpet, they are potentially making one of their largest investments for their home. Like any product you own in your home, everything has to be properly maintained.  


Maintenance frequencies depend on use, size, number of occupants, location, outdoor environment, and pets in the home along with other factors.  In order to optimize appearance and use life of your carpeted investment, following at least the minimum recommended carpet manufacturer maintenance guidelines in conjunction with the CRI 205 is essential. However, modified, enhanced, or more frequent maintenance may be necessary to maintain acceptable levels of appearance and/or performance.


Clean as needed but at a minimum of every 24 months. Use a cleaning frequency recommended by the carpet manufacturer to maintain your warranty.


This document pertains to all non-commercial applications where the resident or resident manager is responsible for maintaining the carpet.
