Carpet Care & Maintenance

Daily care & maintenance

Start by investing in doormats and placing them throughout your home. Have friends and family members use them when entering your home. You should also ask visitors to remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet. It’s important to minimize the amount of dirt tracked onto your flooring, as dirt particles can damage carpet fibers. Here are some other simple preventative maintenance tips:

  • Place carpet protectors underneath all furniture legs.
  • Use a quality carpet pad to add extra softness and support.
  • Take care when moving heavy furniture. 

Regular care

While keeping preventative maintenance in mind, you should also develop a regular care routine. This should include regularly vacuuming your carpet using a manufacturer-approved appliance. If your carpet experiences light to medium traffic, vacuuming it once or twice a week should be sufficient. If it experiences heavy traffic, however, you may want to vacuum more frequently.

Dealing with stains and spills

No matter how careful you are, your carpet will likely fall victim to a spill or mess of some sort–especially if you have children or pets. If this happens, don’t panic! Many of our carpets are sold with stain-resistant technology built right into their fibers, making it easy to clean common household messes. Still, it’s important to address spills the right way.

First, determine if a spill is water- or oil-based. You can use a clean cloth to absorb some; others will require a more comprehensive approach. For these, you’ll want to take a look at our common stain removal guide below.

Professional cleanings

We also recommend that you have your carpet cleaned professionally throughout the year. An alternative is to shampoo it yourself, although you should make sure you follow your manufacturer’s cleaning guidelines. Consider a professional cleaning at least once or twice a year.

Note: Never use bleach on your carpet.

Why choose Vic's Carpet & Flooring?

Vic Raasch started the company in 1967 when he opened his first flooring showroom in a small building in downtown Oconomowoc. Vic had spent a number of years installing flooring with his two older brothers before he decided to open up his own business and control his own destiny. As the business continued to grow over the years, so did the product offerings and the size of the showroom. Kevin Raasch (Vic's son) officially joined the family business in 2001 after graduating college. Vic's Carpet & Flooring has been in its current location since 2006 and has a 7,000 sq. ft. showroom and 5,000 sq. ft. warehouse.
