Furniture and Your Carpet

Another tactic for prolonging the life of your carpet is to periodically rearrange your furniture. This will alter traffic patterns inside your home, thus distributing the wear and tear on your carpet more evenly. Heavy furniture will crush carpet pile and cause deep indentations where the furniture’s legs were located, but this can be easily fixed by spraying a small amount of water on the affected area and using a pile grooming brush to lift the material back into shape.
