Have you managed to design a wine which doesn’t stain or, even better, a carpet which can actually defend itself against stains forever? If so, stop reading and get to the patent office! 

Unfortunately, if you haven’t been able to create either of these things, then there is a good chance that you have to deal with carpet stains as part of your daily life and regular house cleaning chores. While stains will always happen, this doesn’t mean that there needs to be so many each time!

Tips to Help You Keep Your Carpets Cleaner for Longer

Below are some tips from Charlotte Cleanpro on how to minimize the number of stains your carpet sees in between regular professional cleaning services.

Food & Drink

There’s no ‘or’ about it when it comes to this one. Both are equally as troublesome. Of course, the first idea which you think about is to simply not allow anybody to eat or drink over carpeted areas. Sure, this works for a short while until you realize that it limits the majority of your social time to the kitchen or the laundry room. Instead, consider a few small rules, such as:
  • No eating and walking
  • No drinking and walking
  • Don’t load plates up high
  • Keep drinks at ¾
  • Always keep a hand or napkin underneath food while moving
Easy to follow rules like this make it more likely that your house members will do their part to help prevent stains. Of course, if you have any other common spills which you see occur, look for ways to adjust the behavior which causes them.

A Budding Artist

Sometimes when you have a young artist in the house it can be a challenge to find a happy-medium between encouraging their artistic flair and, well, clean carpets. A great way to encourage their natural talent and keep a clean home is to provide them a purpose-designed space or the materials to create one. For example, find a large box and pack it with:
  • Large sheets of plastic to lay down before beginning each art lesson
  • Separate containers with lids for their markers, crayons, and paint brushes
  • Paper towels
  • A set of clothes for them to get dirty
By turning the activity of making a mess into a positive, your children, just like with the use of the food and drink rules, are more likely to follow the rules closely and utilize the box of tools you provide for them. If you just can’t seem to remove a stain or your carpets are due for their regular professional cleaning, speak with somebody who can not only bring your carpets back to life but also leave them ready to be walked on within two hours.

The Great Outdoors

There is something quite relaxing about walking through a forest hiking trail, looking around at nature and walking on the dirt path. Of course, there is something quite...un-relaxing about walking through a forest hiking trail in your home!
  • The first and best idea when it comes to keeping the outdoors where they belong is a shoe rack. You can utilize one either outside your home before your guests enter or at your entrance way inside your home before your guests have had a chance to stray too far from your front door.
  • If your challenge is your family coming home after an energetic sports match covered in mud and anything else they could find to roll around in, then anticipate their moves by utilizing plastic carpet protector sheets to plan out a path for them to walk. Whether it be straight to the laundry room, a bathroom, or even their room, do your best to make the journey a contained one.
  • A happy medium could be the use of welcome mats both outside and inside your home. When taking advantage of this tip, be sure to choose the right mats.
    • When choosing your outside mat, be sure to look for one which is sturdy enough that guests will feel encouraged to stamp their feet heavily and dislodge as much debris and water as possible.
    • For your inside mat, look for something which both offers your guests a more comfortable entrance and catches any lingering debris which wasn’t left outside.
