Carpet Question Corner #21: How Do I Get Off to the Right Foot on Carpet Maintenance?
New carpet can completely transform a room. Now be sure to protect that investment!
You may notice some shedding or sprouting. This is normal and will not affect the carpet’s life or beauty. Here’s what to do:
- Shedding — The shedding of loose fibers is normal and should subside with regular vacuuming.
- Sprouting — If a single tuft extends beyond the carpet’s surface, simply clip it off. Do not pull it out.

And never forget, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to call your local carpet retailer or manufacturer.
