The most important thing to do is ensure that you are cleaning your carpet regularly by giving it a good vacuum. You should make sure that you are using the attachments available with your vacuum order to get in all the crevices around your furniture and along the skirting boards. You should ensure that you run the vacuum across the carpet in one direction and then follow this up by running it in the other direction. The more you pass the vacuum over the carpet in different direction the more dirt that you will pick up from its fibres. It is also a good idea to once a month move any furniture items that you can and give the area a good vacuum and perhaps consider having the carpets professionally cleaned on an annual basis.

Where you have carpet in high traffic areas such as hallways you may want to think about adding an extra layer by adding a rug of some description. This helps maintain the look and feel of your carpet as the rug takes the majority of the pressure and dirt from people walking over it all day long. You can find rugs that compliment or even contrast with your chosen decoration colours depending on what look you are going for. Rugs can also be used to cover up any areas of your carpet that are looking a bit worse for wear whilst you wait for a flooring company to come and fit your new flooring choice.

If you are in the unfortunate position of having a spillage on your carpet you are best to clean this up as quickly as possible. Your first port of call is to dab the spillage with a cloth or kitchen towel to remove all of the excess liquid. If you rub the spillage you will push the liquid and its colour further into the fibres of the carpet. Depending on what you have spilt will then determine what you use to clean it up fully, or you can arrange for a carpet cleaning company to come in and deal with it for you.
