Wear and tear on and damage to our carpet is inevitable. We simply can’t help but wear it down over time! But it’s okay, because we can definitely do things to prevent wear and tear and keep our carpet in great condition! Just follow these simple guidelines and you’ll be well on your way to preventing messes, stains, and wear and tear.
Place Floor Mats at Entrances
It helps tremendously to place floor mats at the entrances to your home! You wouldn’t believe how much dirt becomes attached to our shoes while we’re out walking out and about- or, maybe you would believe it. If you have a doormat at the entrance to your home, the dirt that gets caught on the mat won’t even have the opportunity to reach your carpet! It’s simple, yet brilliant.
Remove Shoes at the Door
Much like the “doormat technique,” as we’re going to call it, designating an area by the door for shoes also prevents dirt and mud from touching your carpet! You can find a basket, or construct a shelf to hold your family’s shoes. Then maybe you should clean out the basket on occasion… you know, to remove all that dirt that’s not messing up your carpet!
Have Your Carpet Professionally Cleaned
And lastly, occasionally we have to bite the bullet and surrender control to the professional carpet cleaners, like The Steam Team! A professional cleaning and restoration company can come out and restore your carpet to its original condition- that’s how effective they are. Consider hiring the professionals on occasion to keep your carpet looking clean and pristine.
