Vacuum Everyday or Often
Vacuuming regularly will not only keep your floors from looking dirty, but it will also help prevent the dirt from getting embedded in the rug. If you’re leaving your rug without vacuuming it often the dirt, pet hair, and dander that is getting tracked into your home can get down in the fibers of the rug. Making your rug dirty and looking unclean.
Take Your Shoes Off in the House
If you are wearing your shoes in your home you are tracking in dirt, mud, or dander that was on your shoe. Even if you think your shoes are clean, if they were just outside they are dirty. When your shoes are dirty and you walk on your rug, guess where that dirt is going to come off at? Correct, right on your rug making your rug dirty. If you take off your shoes when you come into your home you will have a better chance of not tracking in dirt and keeping your rugs clean.
Move Furniture Around on Carpet
Something that many people don’t realize is that you will want to rearrange your furniture and move your rugs around from time to time. This will allow you to switch up the areas of foot traffic on your carpet. This can help keep the carpet from getting worn out in certain spots and reduce the build-up of dirt in the high foot traffic areas of the rug.
Get Old Stains Out of Carpet
Spills happen all the time, they just do. So when they do happen, make sure you clean them up as soon as you can. Leaving a spill on a rug can cause the spill to get into the fibers of the rug and stain your rug. If spills are left on the rug it makes it hard to clean, especially when you have a light-colored rug.
Professional Rug Protector
Rugs in your home can get dirty with dirt, dander, pet hair, and spills. You should do everything that was stated above to help keep it clean and last longer. When your rug begins to appear dirty, you can get a professional to come and clean it and add a carpet protector to your rug. A Professional will make your rugs clean and look like new again.
