Keeping floors cleaned is a tough job. We have a house with carpet, and 4 kids. You see the scenario? Even with my very strict rules about eating at the table, and my watchful eye to always catch a spill asap, it seems little little marks pop up often.
Here is how I try my carpets looking fresh and clean:
1. No eating in the living room rule
2. Vacuum daily
3. No shoes in the house
4. Spot clean as soon as I catch something
5. No walking around with sippy cups. These still spill little dots of drips.
6. Steam clean 2 times a year. When all else fails, call the experts!
Being in the military, and moving often, we have to keep our floors spotless. See, we live in base housing. There are strict rules and strict inspections when you move out. You must show receipt that you had your carpets professionally cleaned, and if there are any stains, you will be charged for replacing the carpet. (Actually, they can deduct it out of your next payday!)
This year the pollen numbers have been outrageous. Did you know that gets into your carpets? Yep, you track everything in from outside. Sneezy lately? Your allergies could be due to your carpets.
