When you as a consumer go to a flooring retailer to buy carpeting, you will find that all of them come with what is called a stain resistant carpet warranty. Usually the warranty is good for 7 to 10 years, with some requirements for the consumer to abide by. Over the years there has been a lot of myths and misconceptions about how stain resistant carpet performs. And sad to say, even on the retail level, consumers have been told that really all they have to do when it comes to the care of their carpet, is just spot clean it, and vacuum it. Well it might be good to perhaps address that claim. First of all, your stain resistant carpet is just that, stain "resistant", meaning it will resist stains because of it's ability to repel and act as a barrier for spills. But resist is much different then blocking like a shield. In essence what we are saying is that stain resistant carpets are not like a bullet proof vest, and proper care of carpet is essential if you are to get the most life out of it. What you will find when you purchase carpet today is you will receive a warranty a contract that will stipulate what kind of cleaning is required and how often, in order to have the warranty honored. It's important that the carpet cleaning company you choose is qualified and trained in the proper care of stain resistant carpet. Just one cleaning, done improperly, will void your warranty.
