Keeping Your Carpets Clean This Summer 

The lawn is green, and the pool is open — summer is finally here, and with it comes the wet towels, the grass strains, and of course the occasional ketchup spill. Don’t sweat it though! Summertime, and the living is easy, right? We definitely think so. Just follow our simple tips, and your carpets will look great all summer long. 

 

The first defense against dirty carpets is limiting how much gets into them in the first place. Try and keep outside shoes off of the carpets, and keep doormats at all entries. Frequent vacuuming is the best way to keep dirt from becoming embedded, which is why it’s crucial to have a vacuum that's easy to use. Consider keeping a cordless vacuum nearby to use in between deeper cleanings. 

 

Spot-Cleaning Tips:

Start the cleaning process by carefully removing any excess spillage. Food residue should be carefully removed with a spoon before any blotting begins. If the spill is large, use a vacuum to remove most of the material before blotting.

 

Then, blot up spills by covering the area with a clean towel. Press down with the heel of your hand, and repeat using dry towels until all the liquid has been absorbed. 

 

If residue remains, continue to clean by mixing a spot-cleaning solution. Dilute a few drops of clear hand-dishwashing soap in water. Blot the area with the solution, and then rinse by blotting with a clean wet towel. Repeat these two steps as needed. Be careful not to rub, or the carpet fibers may become matted.

 

If the stain simply won’t budge, don’t worry — that’s what the experts are for. Simply pour yourself a glass of ice-cold lemonade, and hire an IICRC-certified and CRI-approved carpet care professional. .

Let’s Talk Stone-Look Luxury Vinyl Tile 

Luxury Vinyl Tile has become the hot name in durable and stylish flooring, with an ever-expanding library of impressive wood-look styles. But what if it’s a stone-look you’re after? 

 

 

With printing technology constantly improving, this maintenance-free product now comes in a variety of stone-look styles with a depth and realism to suit any space. 

 

Stone Styles

Like its wood counterpart, stone LVT is available in a variety of styles, ranging from classic and neutral, to industrial and rustic. While the selection is nearly endless, some popular options are: 

 

 

Slate–Just like in nature, slate-look tiles come in a variety of colors, from sleek and subtle gray, to a warm blend of rich colors, including gold, and amber. 

 

Travertine – With a typically matte finish, earthy travertine LVT looks as if it’s been gently worn over time. Warm gold and creamy ivory add an earthy touch to any room. 

 

Marble – Timeless Carrara marble gets a comfortable upgrade in maintenance-free LVT. This is always an elegant and practical choice for kitchens and bathrooms. 

 

For a truly unique look, consider pairing complementing LVT styles in a custom pattern. 

 

Comfort Factor

While stone-look LVT portrays the natural beauty of stone, it’s the comfort factor that really sets it apart. Unlike the cold, hard surface of natural stone flooring, LVT offers a warm and more comfortable surface whilst still providing the durability and stability of stone. 

 

 

Easy-Care 

Hardwearing, waterproof, stone-look LVT is designed to be virtually maintenance-free.  The outermost layer is scratch, stain, and abrasion-resistant — effortlessly protecting the beauty of your floor for years to come. 

 

Elegant, strong and comfortable —stone-look LVT has it all. Call one of our Flooring Experts today to explore our newest styles.
