Recommendations for carpet care/cleaning

Have your carpets cleaned semi-annually or annually by A Plus Carpet and Flooring with our truck mounted deep steam cleaning equipment, so you do not void your carpet manufacturer warranty.

If you have a spill

  • Add 1oz. of liquid soap (i.e. laundry detergent) to 1 gallon of hot water.
  • With a clean white towel, blot the spill (do not rub the spot).
  • Rinse the towel and blot until the spot is gone.
  • Empty the bucket of dirty water and refill with clean water.
  • Blot the spot where the spill was 3 to 4 times with a clean white towel.
  • After the spot is gone, put a clean white towel over the area and pat down the damp carpet. If possible, put a fan on the area, then contact A Plus Carpet and Flooring to have your carpet professional cleaned.
