At entry points to your house or rooms with carpet, it is extremely beneficial to place rugs or mats to make sure that dirt and debris are not carried into your rooms. Doing this will greatly reduce the presence of soiling. The mats and rugs that you place at your entry posts should also be cleaned regularly.
Newly installed carpet flooring can lose fibers in the first week of installation. The effect which can be identified as tufting or shedding is caused when the carpet yarn is spun in the manufacturing process. You should not be alarmed, as it is very common and considered a natural phenomenon in newly-installed carpet. You don’t have to do anything other than vacuum the yarn that has shed.
Most manufactured carpet also comes with protective treatment to prevent the soiling and stains from spills. In the long run, these treatments will wear off and will not be as effective as when first installed.
