Dragging heavy items across carpet puts it at risk of being torn. If you rearrange furniture or add new pieces to a room, use a canvas tarp or drop cloth to protect the carpet as you move the heavy pieces.
Cover Carpet During Remodeling or DIY Projects
When you paint, work on do-it-yourself projects, remodel or do anything else that could compromise you carpet, cover it. Use drop cloths or tarps to cover the area you are working in and make sure paint or other materials are completely dry before you remove them. If you are doing a project in a room with rugs, you can take the rugs out of the room while you do the project.
Change Furnace and Air Conditioner Filters Often
The filters in your furnace and air conditioner work to keep dust, dirt, pollen and other debris out of your home. When you don’t change the filters regularly, they don’t work as efficiently and the dirt that enters your home ends up in your carpet.
You can actually keep your carpet cleaner, and your family healthier, by replacing these filters on a regular basis. Most professionals recommend that you change them every few months, but more often if you have pets or if you smoke.
Clean Your Carpets Regularly
Despite your best efforts, accidents do happen. It is a good idea to use carpet cleaners to deep clean your carpets on a regular basis, because even when you take protective measures, dust, pollen and other particles can make your carpets dirty
