As everything in your home, the life and the beauty of your carpet depends on the care it receives. If you manage to treat it well, you will use it longer. A new carpet can be a very expensive purchase and in most of the cases you can actually postpone it. The first thing you want to make sure of is that you have high quality carpeting. It can be expensive or a cheaper one, actually it doesn't matter. What is important is that if you will need a carpet that will worth the cares. In short, before buying a new carpet make sure that taking care for it will not be in vain and will help you prolong its life.

It will not only make the environment healthier and reduce the number of bacteria, but will also extend the life your carpet and keep it clean and fresh-looking. It will cost you much more if you have you carpets cleaned by a reputable cleaning company which use steam cleaning technology but you can consider it as an option too. And if you have hired a professional cleaning team they will know what kind of a treatment will be proper for your carpet, so you can trust them when offer you some solution for the future. Use Mats In order to keep your carpet from dirt and street dust, you can use some fancy mats and place them in front of the doors (the front door will definitely require one since it is one of the dirtiest parts of the floor). They don't cost much and are smaller. So you will be able to clean and vacuum more easily. Also, somewhere in the kitchen would be a good place to put a mat, because while using the cooker, you will have your floor a lot dirtier than the one in the bedroom for instance. In this way you will prevent cooking oils and food-stuff from being tracked into the carpeted area. Spots cleaning When you have spilled some liquid on it try to bolt the area with a clean towel or paper. If a spill stays longer on your carpet it is very likely that it will take place and creates a bigger damage. In order to remove it later, use appropriate chemicals. There is always a risk of discovering that after you have cleaned your carpet, you have a white spot in the place of your previous stain. Brush your carpets You need to brush you carpet, especially if it is a long-haired one. The helps to control crushing and matting and in this way your vacuum cleaner can clean the base of your carpet. Also, if you're doing this regularly (as we suggest you) will ensure once again the fancy and cosy look of your carpet and you will definitely be able to enjoy it for a long time.
