Texture loss is permanent! How can you avoid this?
Most Important - VACUUM! You can never vacuum too much! If you don’t have time to vacuum thoroughly, make sure you vacuum the traffic areas and stairs. I believe the typical carpet gets vacuumed only a couple times a month! This is inadequate.
Inadequate maintenance will cause permanent texture loss.
With weekly vacuuming, you can usually get away with annual carpet cleaning. More frequent cleaning may be required for the toughest used areas in your home - stairs, halls, pet use areas, TV rooms, etc.
I recommend 12-18 months for regular professional carpet cleaning and rug cleaning for high traffic areas and items. I can provide my carpet cleaning services for these areas to ensure they are properly maintained.
Wear indoor shoes (without black rubber or tanned leather soles). Perspiration and body oils from socks and bare feet build up on your carpets and soil accumulates exponentially as dirt sticks to the oils and perspiration. You cannot vacuum off perspiration and body oils.
Hot water extraction, ‘steam cleaning’, is required to remove them and the soil.
If you keep your carpets clean and vacuum regularly (manufactures recommend daily in traffic areas), you will avoid texture loss for many years.
Permanent texture loss happens almost immediately without maintenance.
