How can I prevent carpet indentations from furniture?


As long as we’re on the topic of carpets and furniture, we might as well talk about another one of our most common questions we get from customers. What about carpet furniture dents? Is there a way to prevent carpet indentations from sofas and other furniture? Good question! Your carpet is one of the most significant investments you will make in you home, and should therefore be protected and well maintained. When it comes to avoiding furniture dents in your carpet, there are a few common strategies:


Move furniture occasionally

Moving your furniture from time to time can be a good way to prevent indentations on your carpet. Even if you only move them a few inches forward, backward, or to the side, this is better than them sitting in the same position for months or years on end. This will help with preventing the compression of your carpet fibers over time.

Put furniture coasters under the legs of furniture

The reason that furniture caused indentations in your carpet is the intense pressure on such a small area. Furniture coasters are a great way to spread out that load and minimize damage to your carpet. They are usually not incredibly expensive, and are sometimes even designed to be disguised as normal carpet! They’re easy to find at most hardware stores or even on Amazon.

Steam or iron carpet fibers

Another way to reduce damage once the indentation is already on the carpet is to steam clean or iron the indents. Steam cleaning can help lessen the indentation, and remove compressed dirt or dust in the carpet fibers. Ironing along a wet towel placed on the indentation can have a similar effect, but keep an eye on the carpet to make sure the heat is not too much.
