To keep carpets looking nice, Paul Iskyan, owner of Rug Renovating, suggests taking off your shoes when you get home… but leave your socks on because walking around in bare feet leaves natural oils that attract dirt.
Try to vacuum every day and use a top-load vacuum, so the dirt falls inward, and HEPA filters. Change the filters often, so you don’t blow pollutants back into the air.
For less-trafficked areas, you can get away with cleaning the carpets once or twice a year, and every 18 months for a bedroom.
For higher-traffic areas, the most often you’d need to bring in professionals would be three or four times a year, although once you see that your carpet’s dirty, you probably should have it cleaned for health reasons.
