Carpet Tips & Myths

Designing Spaces' Debi Marie meets up with Tracy Daves, Design Expert at Shaw Floors to debunk common myths and discuss current trends in carpet.


Carpet has been around for decades and comes in a wide variety of styles, textures, and patterns. The new generation of carpets also offer durable, easy to maintain and eco-friendly options to fit every lifestyle.


The variety of options is endless and carpet transitions well with other flooring such as hardwood and tile so it's the perfect fit for any room. Visit for more information on carpets, trends and flooring myths.

Tips From Shaw Floors

Maintaining clean carpet can seem difficult but when following a few Shaw Floors cleaning tips it doesn't have to be. One tip is to lay down a door mat, an easy fix to keeping dirt and soil from getting on carpets. Another key tip is to vacuum regularly and get carpets professionally cleaned every 6-24 months.


Finally it is important to pay prompt attention to stains and remove them in the appropriate manner - blot never rub or scrub spills. We recommend using a product like Shaw's R2X Stain and Soil Remover for spot cleaning to provide easier stain removal. For more carpet cleaning tips, visit

What is a sealer?

A sealer is like a coat of armor for your stone, tile or grout. Our sealer will decrease the opportunity that anything can stain or harm your surface. We believe that you should always use an impregnation sealer allowing you to retain the natural beauty of the surface.

Granite is like any other natural stone; it can be dense or porous and is absorbent to some degree. These swirls and veins show the movement of the stones active molten history. Generally, stone with smaller crystals are more absorbent than granites that have large crystals.

What process do you use to clean carpet?

No. In fact, many of the major carpet mills today recommend professional cleaning at least once per year. The build up of soil in your carpet in combination with foot traffic creates abrasion that breaks down your carpets' fibers. The higher the traffic in a given area, the more often the carpet will need cleaning.

Most of the carpet cleaning we do is the "hot water extraction" method, also known as "Steam Cleaning" This process is used by about 80% of all carpet cleaning companies across the country. Most major carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction as the preferred method of cleaning.

I've heard it's best to put off having your carpet cleaned as long as possible, is this true?
