Caring For Carpet With Long, Fluffy Fibers
Shag carpet may have faded out of style after the 1970s, but long-fibered carpets are making a comeback! They may not be quite as fluffy as the shag carpets of yesteryear, but today's long-fibered carpets are just as luxurious—and demanding. Here are some tips to help you better care for your long-fibered carpet. Have it professionally shampooed. Most home carpet shampooers are not designed to deal with long-fibered carpets. They may get caught on the fibers, causing the carpet to fray, and they may not thoroughly extract water from the fibers.
