Vacuuming your carpets biweekly will lengthen the lifespan of your carpets and maintain a healthy attractive look of your carpets. If you cannot vacuum the entire house, focus on vacuuming the high traffic areas you will notice between the couch and living room table and down the middle of corridor. When these traffic areas are not vacuumed regularly the dirt and debris will accumulate and when you walk over the dirt it will be like abrasive sandpaper on your carpet.
Remove your shoes at the door
Another great tip is to remove your shoes at the door. This keeps the volatile organic compounds such as tar, bacteria, debris, poo particles, soils and other toxins from entering your house on the bottoms of your shoes. The soles of our shoes are harder on the carpet fibres than our bare feet. Wearing socks is a better option as it prevents our natural foot oils from depositing into the carpet fibres.

Regular steam cleaning
Have your carpets and rugs steam cleaned regularly by a company that is fully insured, police checked, IICRC certified and used as proper truck mounted unit. Radius Carpet & Tile Cleaning is an IICRC certified firm..."just saying' lol." You may be wondering "how often should I have my carpets steam cleaned?" Well if there are 1-3 people and no ground dwelling pets once per year is usually enough. For every two people or pets past 3 every 8 months should suffice. If extreme allergies or health conditions exist that require more frequent cleans contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0479019109 and we can set up appropriate schedule and a price break.
