How to Prevent Indents in Your Carpet Pile

Normal wear and tear is expected and your carpeting will inevitably sustain some indents as time goes by. This is generally caused by placement of heavy furniture for a long period of time and high foot traffic. The Majestic Traffic & Bonnet Cleaner is the leading industry cleaner for treating areas of carpet with high foot traffic.

Preventing Carpet Indents

The most common cause of carpet indents or flat spots is due to heavy objects being placed on it for an extended period of time. You can remedy this by moving the furniture periodically by a few inches or rearranging the furniture in the room. When moving furniture, it is best to lift it from one spot to another instead of dragging it as this can worsen the flat spot.

Vacuuming is an easy way to not only clean and remove dirt from the carpet but it also pulls the carpet fibers back up. Castor cups is another option to help prevent flat spots because it spreads the weight of each leg of the furniture over a larger area of the carpet. Although you will still need to eventually rearrange your furniture, you will not need to do so as frequently.

It is best to treat any signs of flat spots as soon as you notice them to prevent them from becoming deeper or even permanent. One way you can treat these areas is by laying a damp towel over the flat spot and running an iron over the towel to steam the fibers. Perhaps the best option to clean and restore small to medium spots is the use of a carpet extractor, such as the NSS Stallion 818.
