Choosing the wrong fibers for your carpet flooring can have drastic results, especially in areas with high traffic levels and activity. But is there anything you can do if your surfaces become matted and crushed?

The good news is that matting is a natural part of the carpeting lifespan, so there are ways to deal with it when it happens. Here are some facts to help you with your carpeting and issues.

Matting causes vary

Flat, stiff carpeting, or matting, is typical over time and often happens in high-traffic spaces where children, pets, and houseguests have free reign. It can also occur on your carpet, so you need to remember to clean it regularly.

The buildup of dust and dirt can cause this issue, but so can choosing the wrong thickness of underpadding. The good news is that there are also several ways to address this issue.

Matting fixes for you

For minor spots beneath furniture legs, a bit of dampness from an ice cube can often revive the fibers. Let the ice rest until melted, and fluff with a brush to rejuvenate the fibers.

In other instances, a hair dryer or low iron could be just what your carpet needs to perk back up. However, if all else fails, contact our professional services department to get the results you deserve.
