Carpet is one of the fixtures in the home that need special handling in care. The carpet with less appropriate care can make filthy carpets and easily damaged.
Clean your carpet in the right way to keep it durable. Here are the tips:

Carpets should be cleaned frequently using a vacuum cleaner, especially if you have just installed carpet. Although they are clean, the carpet fibers can be mixed with dust and dirt. If left too long, dirt will accumulate. Beside it is not good for health, which accumulate dirt more quickly will also damage the carpet.
Clean the carpet with a vacuum cleaner at least once a week. Focus on areas that are often pass through, because it is usually most of the dirt stuck in the area.
2. Do not walk with Bare Feet
Many people assume that walking barefoot in the house can make a carpet clean longer. But that assumption is not entirely true. Feet produce sweat and oil. When in contact with the carpet, oil and sweat stick to the carpet leading to the dust and dirt easily attached. We recommend wearing socks or slippers when walking on carpet.

You should not wash your carpets with detergents or cleaning fluids that contain soap. The resulting foam soap will leave a residue remains that it will tie up more dust on the carpet. In addition, soap residue is left behind can also weaken the carpet fibers, making carpets easily torn or damaged.
