Vacuum Regularly: Vacuuming your carpet regularly will keep the dust and dirt from being absorbed
into your carpet. Medium to high traffic areas should be vacuumed twice weekly, and the entire house at least once a week.
Use Area Rugs: If you use area rugs over your carpet, be sure to remove and clean them regularly. Clean and restore the pile of the carpet underneath and carefully check that the rugs are not letting off any dye before putting them back on the carpet.
Spot and Stain Removal: Prompt attention to spots and spills is essential. Remove as much of food spills as possible by scraping gently with a spoon or dull knife. Absorb spills as quickly as possible by blotting repeatedly with white paper or white cloth towels. Always blot a spot working from the outer edge in toward the center. Do not rub or scrub. Always follow up with lukewarm water to remove detergent residue that may become sticky and cause rapid re-soiling. Remove any extra moisture with towel.
Immediately wipe up spills. Place area rugs or runners in high traffic areas. Remember that flooring around rug may fade so move your rugs around often. Spot clean your floor as needed and completely clean several times a year with wood/laminate floor cleaners. Do not use water or soap-based detergents which may leave a dull film. Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring materials which can scratch the floor. Do not wax or polish laminate floors. Keep your pet's claws trimmed as they may scratch the floor. Maintain proper climate and humidity controls. A temperature of 70 degrees and 35-50% humidity levels are ideal.
Wipe up spills as soon as possible. Wash floor periodically with manufacturer recommended vinyl cleaners.
Do not use detergents, abrasive cleaners or "mop and shine" products as they may leave a film on your floor. Also do not use abrasive scrubbing tools. When moving appliances or heavy furniture, lay a plywood panel on your floor and walk the item across it. This protects your floor from scuffing and tears.
