New carpeting is expensive, so it’s in your best interest to prolong the life of your existing carpet. The constant foot traffic, your pets and even the sun can damage your carpet and leave it in need of replacement. However, there are ways to protect and preserve your carpet. With the right assistance, you can even restore damaged rugs to their former glory.
Move the Furniture to Avoid Crushed Areas
Over time, your furniture presses on the carpet and causes indentations in it. Given enough time, and indentations will become permanent. Move the furniture occasionally to avoid this problem. Rearranging will also create new traffic patterns, so you won’t have areas that are worn down from regular traffic.
Shoes are for Outside
Shoes are made for outside the home. Encourage your family to leave shoes in their room or the front hall closet to keep carpets clean. Simply banishing outdoor shoes from the inside of your house will help you keep the carpet looking great longer. It’s an easy way to protect and preserve your rug.
Regular Vacuuming to Remove Dirt
Even if you have banished shoes from the house, your carpet will still pick up dust and dirt. Dirt and grime can work like sandpaper on the fibers in your rug. Vacuum regularly to remove the debris and keep your carpet looking great. Most of the suction works when you are pulling the vacuum towards you, so be sure to move it slowly then to maximize cleaning.
