1. Build lasting habits
It is important that you limit the appearance of dirt in carpeted areas as much as possible.
If people often wear shoes in your home, change that habit by encouraging people to leave their shoes outside in carpeted
areas. Or better yet, leave shoes outside the door and use indoor shoes, this will limit bacteria from spreading into the house.
Should maintain the habit of cleaning the carpet once a week with a vacuum cleaner.
When using a vacuum cleaner to clean carpets, you must pay attention to the carpet fiber
structure to guide the machine in the direction of the fibers. If you put the machine in the
opposite direction of the fiber, the carpet is not only not clean, but the dust also returns to the carpet,
making the carpet more and more fibrous.
2. Treat stains immediately
To keep the carpet clean, the first thing you need to remember is to clean it as soon
as it gets dirty. Do not rub the carpet because it can deepen the wool stain, making it more difficult to clean.
You should also use a cloth to absorb the stains on the carpet, never use a hard brush
to rub it to avoid breaking and damaging the fibers. When cleaning, wipe from the outer rim,
toward the center to prevent the stain from spreading.

and natural softness of the carpet, but also adversely affects the health of people. in your family,
especially young children and the elderly.
