If you live and work in the Twin Cities Area of Minnesota like I do, you are aware that MNDOT, part of the Minnesota Government that is responsible for the roads, is plenty liberal with sand and salt on our streets and highways. This is good for safety on our roads, however, sand and salt damage carpet. This debris is both sharp and abrasive. The sharp corners of the dirt and salt latch onto the bottom of our shoes and turn them into walking sand paper, sawing right through the tiny carpet fibers. This causes discoloration when light tries to reflect off of the carpet in these worn out areas. Should this damage occur, the area can be clean as a whistle, but still appear discolored. Because of these harsh conditions, it is very important to have your carpets professionally cleaned and protected at least once a year. Between professional carpet cleanings, it is important to vacuum your carpet on a schedule appropriate for the amount of traffic your carpet receives (anywhere from once a week to once a day).
