Are you one of those people for whom cleaning is a big pain? Then you would probably rate cleaning the carpet as the biggest pain of all. It is not as if you can swish a wet mop over the surface and leave it to dry knowing it will look cleaner for not too much effort. Even vacuuming the carpet takes a lot more effort than vacuuming a hard floor surface. So, here are some tips to take the pain out of carpet cleaning.
- Keep dirt out of the house by placing mats inside and outside the entry doors. The outside mats can be of rubber or anything suitable that will grab all that first lot of dirt off shoes and boots, even before their owners step inside. Of course, you could train everyone to take their shoes off before they come in, but that is not always practical. If your school age child has to run back inside for something they forgot on their way to school, they are not going to pull their shoes off to do it.
