Most methods for carpet cleaning are things you can do yourself at home. Professional cleaners, though, can always do one better. They come pre-armed with all the necessary tech – special vacuum cleaners, chemicals heavy duty floor cleaners and industrial-sized steamers. So avoiding the need to turn to a professional for a carpet clean is probably a rather good idea!

As with any need to fix things up, avoiding the problem in the first place is the best approach! But keeping a floor free from spillage and heavy footfall is much easier said than done in a house full of kids! Experts advise that you should vacuum your floor at least once a week. Although, with hectic modern lifestyles that’s not going to be very easy. But if we all did it, it would be a good way to stop your carpet from discolouring over time. A regular carpet shampoo is supposed to have the same effect, to stop carpets from fading around the edges.

Tackling those nasty stains early is also advisable, so they don’t sink in, dry on and require a whole different level of carpet cleaning. We’ve been through how to clean coffee stains before, but it’s worth remembering to keep some clean cloths to hand, just in case.

Another great tip is to keep moving your furniture about, to change the places on your floor that get the heaviest foot fall and make sure that no areas of your carpet get left un-cleaned for too long.
In the long run, carpets are going to get tired and worn out, and they might actually benefit from a professional coming in and giving them a once over. But for the time being, making sure the kids take their shoes off at the door and keep the crumbs in the kitchen is going to keep the professional cleaners at bay.
