Different carpets have different warranties that relate to their yarn system and weight.  Shaw Industries, a Major Manufacturer of carpet , highlights several  carpet selections starting with an Anso Branded Nylon with a 20 year stain soil, and texture retention warranty. They also include their Ever Touch Nylon with a 15 Year Stain, Soil and texture retention warranty. In addition, they promote  a Clear Touch PET Polyester with a 15 and 10 year  stain, soil, and texture retention warranty.

All of these products warranty against Urine stains. What this means to the customer is that depending upon the floor covering you select you can be assured
that the quality and appearance remains  for a beautiful area carpeted.

Carpet Maintenance

Carpet to  remain  looking great must be cared for by keeping the dirt/soil out of your floor covering.  Use walk-off mats at entrance and other areas to keep the dirt and moisture from being tracked onto your carpet.  Make sure your  entrances and sidewalks are free of excess dirt.   The best way to prolong the life of your carpet is to vacuum frequently.  The gritty, sharp particles of dirt abrade the carpet fibers. It is recommended that you use a vacuum cleaner with a  rotating brush or “beater bar” to agitate the pile of the carpet and loosen the soil particles. The long shagged carpets can get tangled in a beater bar so a suction-only vacuum is suggested for those.  If your vacuum has an overly aggressive action take care.

Spots and Spills, Soiling and Staining

Prompt attention to your carpet stains is essential. Some materials will actually stain or discolor carpet if not removed promptly.  Some spills are sticky and will result in further soiling if not removed.   Remove food stains as quickly as possible by scraping gently with a spoon or dull knife. Absorb wet spills by blotting repeatedly with white paper  or cloth towels. Always blot, never rub or scrub harshly on your carpet. It may result in a fuzzing appearance if rubbed too harshly. Work from the outer edge in toward the center of the soiled spot to avoid spreading the spill.

Follow up with water to remove any detergent residue you have used to remove  the stain. Remove remaining moisture by placing several layers of white towels over the spot and weighing it down with a heavy object that will not transfer color, such as a jug  of water.
