Carpet cleaning will keep your carpet looking like new


Carpet may be one of the easiest types of flooring to take care of. Learn how to keep yours looking great over time with a simple care and cleaning program:

Caress by Shaw Recommended Vacuum Cleaners


Shaw has conducted extensive testing as well as coordinated with vacuum manufacturers to develop a list of appropriate vacuum cleaners for use with Caress by Shaw products.

Care of Shag Carpet


A requirement if you have shag carpet is the ability to not only adjust the height of the vacuum, but also to disengage the beater bar or brushes to allow for suction only.

No carpet is absolutely stain proof

Some carpets have stain resistant treatments that improve your ability to clean stains, but not prevent them. Similarly, carpets with soil resistant treatments reduce the rate of soiling, but all carpets require regular care and maintenance. Resist carpet soil and stains with R2X, Shaw's own breakthrough technology.

Stains and soil

Shaw Floors Carpet Stain & Soil Remover with R2X

The majority of stain complaints are actually soil related. For example, many sugar-based spills, such as soft drinks and coffee, leave a sugar residue after removal. This sticky residue readily attracts soil from ordinary shoe traffic, and the resulting discolored area appears to be a stain.

The same thing happens when spills are cleaned with a detergent solution and the area is not sufficiently rinsed with plain water, leaving a sticky detergent residue. It is important to rinse thoroughly with water and blot dry after removing any spill.
