Berber Carpet Advice

Berber carpeting is a beautiful option to cover your floors for any room in your home. Berber is the style of the weave of carpet, rather than the fiber, so it is important that you choose the right fiber of Berber carpet for your home. Keeping it clean and stain free is the only way that you can keep it looking beautiful. Taking precautions to help keep your Berber carpeting clean, will help maintain it's look for years. 
The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you buy well-constructed, quality carpet. Better quality Berber carpet, is much easier to clean than a lower quality Berber carpet. That is one reason why you may want to spend a little more on your Berber carpet than you had planned.
Dirty feet are a major enemy of Berber carpeting. That is why you might want to begin a "no shoes" policy in your home by having your family leave their shoes at the door or encouraging them to wipe their feet off thoroughly by putting mats right at the door. Shoes are in contact with all kinds of dirt and grime, like oil, mud, and bubble gum, and not tracking that in will keep your carpet clean. Another rule that you may want to enforce is the "no food or drink on the carpet" rule. Both of these rules are a great way to keep a great deal of the dirt off your beautiful Berber carpets. Regular vacuuming with suction only, (be very cautious using a vacuum with a beater bar, it can easily catch a loop. and zipper your carpet) and stain removal is another key to keeping your Berber carpeting looking beautiful.

The thick loops of Berber carpet makes it extremely difficult to clean if a stain gets down into the loops. That's why it is essential that you clean up spills and messes as soon as they occur to keep them from being trampled down or soaking into the carpeting. If your spill is a liquid one, take a clean dry cloth and blot, don't rub. The blotting will help remove the excess liquid from your carpeting. If you have a dry spill, you need to pick up as much of the debris and dirt immediately, and then vacuum to remove the rest of it as soon afterwards as possible. The key to good stain removal is to take care of the stain as soon as it occurs, rather than letting it sit and soak into the carpeting fibers. If you have a stain that you just can't seem to remove, then you need to consult a professional carpet cleaner.
Berber carpet care will also usually involve a regular professional cleaning. Due to the dangers of getting Berber carpeting over wet, you may want to leave the cleaning to a professional. This cleaning can help remove some of the ground in dirt and stains that you may not see right now, but they may begin to come to the surface soon. A professional carpet cleaner will understand exactly how your Berber carpeting needs to be cleaned for maximum effectiveness.
