Frequently Asked Questions
There are so many choices - how do I know what type of carpet to buy?
Ask an expert which type of fiber and dye would best suit your needs. Price does matter, as cheaper products frankly don't last as long. You're making an investment, so invest in the quality and appearance that's right for you.
How do I keep my carpet looking beautiful?
Dust particles break down the fibers in your carpets, upholstered furniture and draperies, so regular vacuuming is advisable. Vacuum once a week to minimize dust, but remember that regular professional carpet cleaning
is essential to remove all the dust, mites and allergens that your vacuuming can't.

How do I remove ugly stains and blotches from my carpets and rugs?
You can try to remove many stains at home by wetting the area to gently loosen the stain and then blotting, blotting, blotting. Start blotting from the outside of the stain always moving towards the center of the stain. This will help prevent the stain from spreading over a larger area as you clean. Always blot with an absorbent paper towel or a clean, light-colored cloth, switching as it becomes wet or soiled. DO NOT RUB your carpet or rug. You risk setting in the stain, damaging the pile, and making the dye run.
If you've tried to remove the stain already and were not successful, don't up the ante with elbow grease and potentially harmful chemicals. Contact us today for a free consultation at 202-683-4270.
