You may not realize it, but your carpet is one of the most expensive things in your home, and it can easily become damaged if it isn’t cared for properly. With the proper care and cleaning schedule, your carpet can look great and last for many years. If you’ve noticed that your carpet has been looking a bit dirty, RCH Cleaning has recommendations on how to keep your carpet in great condition.
Doormats & Rugs
Most dirt and dust tracked in will begin at the front door. To protect your carpet and prevent debris, doormats and rug runners are great investments to keep the dirt at the door. Placing rugs in areas where spills may occur can also protect your carpet. Areas such as the dining room and living room are good places for a rug, as they’re typically where young children may play or eat.

Remove Your Shoes
Shoes should never be worn inside the house if you want to prevent carpet stains. Before you step foot on your carpet, be sure to remove your shoes. If you have friends over a lot, perhaps consider initiating a no-shoes rule when guests come over. The less foot traffic you have on your carpet, the cleaner it will remain.
Clean Stains Immediately
Spills happen in any household. Unattended spills and stains can wreak havoc on your carpet and potentially never come out. As soon as a spill happens, clean it as quickly as you can. Spot cleaners or carpet stain removers are a great option and are easy to grab when you’re in a hurry to clean up messes.
Finally, getting into a weekly vacuuming schedule can do wonders for your carpet. Get in the habit of vacuuming once or twice a week to clean up the daily debris left behind. This includes high traffic areas such as the living room, dining room, and underneath couches and tables. You may have to move some furniture around to get those hard to reach places, but it’ll be worth it in the long run. Notice your carpet may still be dingy? It could be the vacuum you’re using. Investing in a high-quality vacuum can improve the cleaning power and make your carpet even cleaner.
