Caring For Your Soft Carpet

If you’re excited about installing luxuriously soft carpet in your home, Mohawk shares your excitement! Here, we have outlined simple reminders around taking great care of your new soft carpet.

Mohawk premium soft carpets are extremely durable and many contain two or three times the amount of fiber of ordinary soft yarns, which actually increases the carpet’s performance and durability. Mohawk floors aren’t just the softest; they’re also the best-performing.

Mohawk premium soft carpets need regular maintenance just like any other carpet. The warranty brochure you received with your purchase provides details about your carpet type as well as cleaning instructions, spot removal tips and recommendations for normal care and maintenance.

Regular vacuuming is a crucial part of carpet maintenance. It’s important to note that certain vacuums and vacuum features work better than others for premium soft carpets, as the increased number of soft fibers can make some vacuums difficult to push. Your existing vacuum may not work on premium soft carpet; however, a number of well-suited vacuums are available at various retailers’ in a range of prices.

Selecting the Right Vacuum

When it comes to vacuums, one size does not fit all. It’s important to note that your current vacuum may not work well on your fabulous new soft carpet. Over the past several years, vacuum manufacturers have focused on creating extremely high suction vacuums. High suction vacuums perform well on low pile carpets and hard surface flooring. However, most do not work well on thicker, high pile carpets, like Mohawk’s softest offerings.

When vacuuming premium soft carpets or high pile, wool or wool-blend look for these features:

  • Adjustable Height Use the highest setting where appropriate
  • Efficient Airflow Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction
  • Large Wheels Vacuum should glide easily across the carpet
