When buying a home, you will find that one of the biggest investments you will make will be on the carpet lined surfaces you have in your home.
You should professionally clean your carpets from companies such as Foam Frenzy Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning in every twelve to eighteen months, and vacuum every day or two to keep them from appearing dingy.
The carpet is very elegant and it looks good in your home. Developing some simple cleaning habits to maintain its beauty will last carpet well beyond the expectations you may have.
If people walk on the carpet with their shoes you will often find dark path areas begin to form on the carpet.
The accumulation of sand and gravel combined with the friction shoes grinding the fibers of your carpet will make these areas wear thin.
Neglecting these dirty areas too long means that eventually, carpet cleaning will not help the carpets look cleaner. The solution is very simple to take your shoes at the door and it will help keep the carpet cleaner.
An easy solution to keep the carpet cleaner is to throw rugs or runners in high traffic areas of your home. These rugs will serve two purposes; they will decorate your carpets and at the same time, they help maintain cleaner carpet.
It is very easy to wash these rugs in a machine or replace them instead of replacing the wall to wall carpet.
It is very difficult to stop foot traffic and dirt will still come into your home, but these rugs will help prolong the beauty of your wall to wall carpet.
