1. LEAVE DIRT AT THE DOOR Make sure family members and guests wipe their feet after removing their shoes at the main door, so that dirt doesn’t accumulate on your precious carpet!
2. BLOT, NOT RUB Trying to remove a stain by rubbing it can cause it to set permanently. Instead, use a kitchen towel or roll, blotting from the outside in, to soak up any spills, or dab with a warm water-soaked sponge.
3. ROTATION DUTY Every six months, carefully rotate your carpet to prevent areas with heavy foot traffic from wearing down.
