The Best Way To Care For Your Carpet: Steam Carpet and Rug Cleaning in Victoria BC


Carpeting is really simple to care for and an easy, regular care plan will help you preserve the beautiful look of your carpeting for many years to come. Follow these important care tips to all carpets and area rugs.

  1. Instant Removal of spills to prevent spots and stains (See directions below).
  2. Every day light vacuuming of heavy traffic areas to pick up surface dirt, grime and debris.
  3. Weekly thorough vacuuming with a correctly adjusted vacuum cleaner to get out the embedded dirt that can cause early wear and tear to your carpets and rugs.  Victoria Carpet Care recommends a vacuum cleaner with a rotating brush or “brush/beater bar” to agitate the pile and loosens soil particles. The exception to this is for shag styled products with longer yarns which might tend to wrap around a rotating brush. For these styles we recommend a suction-only vacuum.
  4. Get your carpets professionally cleaned at least every 12 months. You may need to have your carpets cleaned more often, depending on traffic, kids and pets! Also a lighter shade of carpet may require more diligent cleaning.  This is important for best appearance and longest life from carpeting and area rugs.
  5. You can keep your area rugs looking great and extending the rugs life by turning them around once in a while, changing the parts that get walked on the most, evening out wear.


Follow these steps before proceeding to the chart of stains and methods of removal.

  • On any fresh stain, remove all excess moisture with paper tissues by Blotting. Do not rub the stained area, since this spreads the stain.
  • On any dried stain, when the surface of the stain is hard and crusted, carefully break it up and remove loose material by vacuuming.
  • For best results, spot clean as soon as stain is noticed.
  • With stains that are not identifiable, DO NOT USE ANY CLEANING PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN  A BLEACH DETERGENT Call Victoria Carpet Care right away at 250-474-7777 for a Cleaning Evaluation!
