Commonly Asked Questions
Is My Vacuum Cleaner Causing Damage to My Rug?
When your carpet starts to tear, fluff, pull apart, or look shaggy, you might not realize it’s because of your vacuum cleaner choice! Many of the most well-known vacuum manufacturers have characteristics that make them inappropriate for certain types of carpet. With certain types of carpet, high-end vacuum cleaners with better suction power and robotic vacuum cleaners can pose major problems. These vacuums are not recommended since they are often not adaptable to fit varying carpet heights.
Don’t destroy your new Mohawk or Karastan carpet by vacuuming it incorrectly! We recommend investing in a vacuum cleaner that has received the CRI Seal of Approval/Green Label Vacuum Cleaner Program certification. If you already have a vacuum cleaner that you like, there are three things to look for to see if it will work on your Mohawk or Karastan carpet.
Mohawk Flooring is a brand name for a type of
Height of Vacuum
The most significant aspect to consider is the ability to adjust the height. As a result, the machine can be used on a wide range of carpet types. If your vacuum is placed too high above the carpet surface, it won’t be able to attract the grit beneath it. If the vacuum’s beater bar or brushes are set too low, they can “fuzz” the carpet’s surface, making it appear old or frayed.
Depending on the pile height and fiber type, different carpet kinds will require different height settings. High pile and premium soft carpets typically require the highest height setting, however thick loop, casual frieze, or long pile carpets may necessitate completely disengaging the beater bar and vacuuming with suction only. Try a test run in an inconspicuous section of your home, such as a closet, if you’re not sure which height setting is appropriate for your carpet.
Type of Suction
While strong suction strength may provide consumers with piece of mind that their vacuums are sucking up dirt and germs, it may be extremely harmful to your carpet and should be avoided! Avoid vacuums with concentrated or sealed suction for high pile and premium soft carpet. Not only would this type of suction damage your carpet, but it will also make it impossible to maneuver the vacuum across it!
You may determine the suction power of a vacuum by testing it or looking for terminology like “concentrated” or “sealed” suction. Look at the cubic feet per minute as well (CFM). The vacuum cleaner’s airflow is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). The higher the CFM, the greater the suction power. The majority of vacuum cleaners have a CFM range of 50 to 100, however some have as low as 45 CFM and as high as 200 CFM.
Make use of a vacuum cleaner with a revolving brush or a beater bar. If the beater bar or brush comes into contact with your carpet too high or too low, make sure to adjust the height as needed. Before you begin, inspect the beater bars for burs and gouges to avoid causing harm to the carpet’s surface.
Vacuums that are recommended
The SONICLEAN SFC-7000 SOFT CARPET UPRIGHT VACUUM is highly recommended for maintaining and cleaning premium soft carpet. This vacuum cleaner has a revolutionary sonic bar that produces 200 sonic vibrations per second, as well as a brush roll jam protection system.

Stains have existed since the dawn of carpet, and through time, techniques have improved and carpet technology have advanced to the point where these carpet flaws may now be completely removed. To properly remove those stains for good, first look at the 4 Go-To Stain Steps, then the Common Stains Chart, and finally the Stain Removal Procedures Chart.
Steps to Using Your Favorite Stain
When a stain appears, the afflicted area should be treated right away. With time, stain removal becomes more difficult! To begin, follow these four steps:
To begin, remove as much solid stuff as possible with a spoon, dull knife, or a carpet cleaning key.
To avoid stain spreading, always work from the outside in to the center, especially with heavy stains.
Using a white cloth or paper towel, blot up any liquid spillage.
To get the greatest results, try rinsing the stain with warm water.
Chart of Common Stains
It’s now time to use our useful Common Stains Chart to find your stain. Different stains necessitate somewhat different cleanup processes, all of which must be fine-tuned to keep your carpet pile looking its best. Procedures A, B, and C are all meant to help you accomplish just that, but first, figure out who’s making the mess!
*Before applying cleaning fluid, freeze and remove solid contaminants.
Important: Any cleanser with a pH of 10 or above should be avoided. Always test cleaners on a small, inconspicuous part of the pile before using to ensure there is no discoloration.
Excessive or very large stains may necessitate the use of a hot water extraction procedure. Cleaning by a professional is suggested. If the stain reappears (a condition known as “wicking”), simply repeat the stain removal steps, paying extra attention to blotting and removing all moisture.
Procedures for Getting Rid of Stains
It’s time to remove the stain after you’ve completed the 4 Go-To Stain Steps and determined the type of stain you have using the Common Stains Chart’s coordinated approach. Procedures A, B, and C will assist you in restoring your carpet to its original soft, clean, and beautiful state! For optimal results, follow these steps carefully and slowly:
PROCEDURE A (FOR WATER-BASED, SPECIAL WATER-BASED AND GREASY, OIL-BASED STAINS)
- Mix a solution of 1/4 teaspoon of clear hand dishwashing detergent with 1 cup of water.
- Stir gently. Apply detergent solution directly to a white cloth.
- Dampen the carpet fibers in the stained area with the cloth.
- Avoid saturating the carpet. Wipe gently.
- Turn cloth frequently. Never rub, scrub or use a brush. This may damage carpet fibers.
- If necessary, use your fingertips to work the solution to the base of the stain.
- Do not oversaturate carpet; use small amounts of solution and blot frequently.
- Wet the stained carpet fibers with clear, lukewarm water to rinse.
- Cover the spot with an absorbent white towel or paper towel and apply pressure to blot.
- Repeat the rinsing and blotting procedures until you are sure all traces of the detergent have been removed.
- If the stain is gone, place an absorbent white towel or paper towel over the area cleaned, and weigh towels down with a heavy colorfast object, such as a weighted plastic wastebasket. Change towels or paper towels until carpet dries.
If stain remains, perform Procedure B – Coffee, tea or urine, skip Procedure B & perform Procedure C.
PROCEDURE B (DO NOT USE ON COFFEE, TEA OR URINE STAINS)
- Mix 2 tablespoons of non-bleaching, non-sudsing household ammonia with 1 cup of lukewarm water.
- Apply ammonia solution, rinse and blot as outlined in Procedure A.
- Do not dry with paper towels.
Follow Procedure C to neutralize the ammonia solution.
- Mix 1/2 cup of white vinegar with 1 cup of lukewarm water.
- Apply vinegar solution, rinse and blot as outlined in Procedure A.
- These steps should help you remove the offending carpet stain, but if you’re not completely satisfied, professional carpet cleaning should be able to finish the job.
