Cleaning, Maintenance, and More: How to Care for Carpet


In the past couple of months, we’ve been getting a lot of questions about carpet. Today, we’ll be going over a few key points you need to know to best maintain any carpet. 

In the past couple of months, we’ve been getting a lot of questions about carpet. To best address them, we decided to reach out to our carpet installers: Imperial Tile.

According to them, the most important thing you can do to maintain your carpet is to vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. A lot of people complain about their carpet matting down, but vacuuming at least once a week should prevent this from occurring altogether.

Also, don’t vacuum in the same direction and pattern every time. This will help your carpet stand up to foot traffic and will prevent it from becoming worn down. Using a vacuum cleaner that will work well for your specific carpet is another way to maintain it.

High-quality vacuums can be adjusted for height. If you have a thicker carpet, you’ll want to raise your vacuum to a higher height setting. The opposite is true for short carpet.

So, what about actually cleaning the carpet? First, stick to a professional cleaner and have your carpet cleaned every 12 to 18 months. Rug Doctors and household steam cleaners can actually do more damage than good, since they can de-laminate your carpet.

Additionally, rugs can help to protect your carpet and keep it clean. Rugs are good for decor and for the longevity of your carpet. Placing rugs in areas where people enter your home and need to wipe their shoes is always a good option.

When a carpet does get dirty or a spill occurs, the best thing you can do is to get the stain out right away. Dish detergent and a little bit of water will go a long way. Blot at stains with a white cloth, since colored cloths can transfer pigment to your carpet. And remember: never scrub at a spill or stain. You can find more information on removing stains here.

Some wear and tear is to be expected, though. Depending on the activity that takes place in your carpet, you may start to see some rippling or relaxing of the carpet over time. If you move furniture often, this is likely to occur.

Different kinds of carpet tend to relax more than others. This has nothing to do with an installation defect. But, relaxing of the carpet is covered under our warranty for the first year.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Fall Is Here! Why Is It a Great Time to Build a Home?


Thinking about selling your home and buying a new one? This is a great market to do it in. 


If you’ve been considering buying a new home at any point in the near future, now might be the time to act. Right now, we are seeing building costs start to rise in the wake of the damage caused by recent hurricanes in Florida and Texas and the wildfires in California.

We’re anticipating that there is a pretty significant increase coming, but for now the costs remain relatively low. You can build a house now for much less than it would cost once these building costs start to rise.

This is a great market for
move-up buyers.



If you need to sell your home in order to buy a new one, this is a great market for that too. Inventory is low, so there isn’t much for buyers to choose from. You can help your home stand out in this market, get a great sale price, and move into something bigger and better. It’s also a great time to write a purchase contract with a move-in date this spring.

These are just a few of the reasons why you should consider buying a home this fall. If you have any questions for us, don't hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. As always, we’d love for you to come and check out our model homes in Gretna and Elkhorn.
