Follow these simple tips to keep your carpet’s color and texture looking fresh.

  • Vacuum your carpet regularly to prevent soil from embedding itself in the pile. You can never over vacuum carpet.
  • Many Carpets now have a soft fiber which can prohibit certain makes of vacuums unable to be moved about your new carpet. Dyson, is just an example of such a vacuum because of his high powered suction and lack of adjustable height for different surfaces.
  • Tom Adams has an exclusive 1 year Spot and Spill Warranty. Please contact your sales person for details and a bottle of FREE Spot Carpet Cleaning bottle with your purchase.
  • Depending on the type of carpet you have, you’ll want to use a vacuum with a rotating brush, a beater bar, or suction only.  Berber, commercial or pattern should not have a beater bar.
  • Keeping traffic and other use factors in mind, you must have professional cleaning every 12 to 18 months, per the manufacturers warranty. 
  • Use scissors to clip sprouts and snags. Don’t pull on them—you might damage the carpet, call Tom Adams Service Department if you would need us to come out.
  • If your carpet is burned, simply remove the tops of the dark, burnt fibers with curved fingernail scissors. If the burn is extensive, you may need to patch or replace it. 
  • Remove heavy furniture dents by stroking the dented area with the edge of a coin. You can also use a hair dryer or a steam iron, but be very careful not to touch the carpet with the iron. 
  • If your carpet has wrinkles, and you ( the homeowner) purchased your carpet from Tom Adams for your home,  please call our Service Department and ask for your FREE Carpet restretch. This is part of your Lifetime Warranty from Tom Adams . (rentals, builder standard grade and commercial carpet excluded)
  • For extensive water damage, consult professional cleaners to dry your carpet from the front and back.
