Once or twice a year, depending on traffic, spills, stains, etc., you may want to go beyond regular maintenance and clean your carpets thoroughly. You can rent equipment for this purpose at various places and do it yourself, or you can call in a professional carpet cleaning company. You may want to check your product warranty before you do either just to be sure you remain in compliance with warranty requirements.
