When it comes to keeping your carpets looking their best, it can seem like an impossible task. With the right tips and tricks, there is a way to keep it cleaner for longer. This article can help! Keeping your carpets clean and looking their best is not an easy thing to do, especially not for a prolonged period. It’s only a matter of time before you spot another dirt, mud, soda, marker, or any number of other stains on your carpet. Once you spot one, you just know that you’re going to spot another!

Keep Your Carpet Cleaner for Longer

While there isn’t any way to keep your carpets truly free from incidents 24 hours a day (and still live in the house and walk on the carpets), there are some ways that you can minimize the occurrences. Colonial Cleanpro has some tips below on the very subject.

Build a Shoe Rack

A shoe rack is a great way to keep the majority of the dirt and mud outside in nature where it belongs, and not all over your lovely fresh carpet. You can find a basic design online, and, with a few bangs of a hammer, you will have yourself a space for people to store their shoes before entering your home. Of course, if you don’t like the idea of your guests leaving their shoes outside your home, you can always design and build one that looks nice inside your home, just at your door.

Mats! Mats! Mats!

If you have a door to the outside world, put a mat on either side of it! It doesn’t matter if this is the front or main door, the back door which never gets used, or even the small flap that your pet uses to get in and out of the house, put a mat down! Not only are mats great at catching and retaining dirt and debris but their very presence triggers people to use them. They're a subtle way for you to tell your guests to clean up before they enter your nice clean home. Of course, there are just going to be times where your child’s entire soccer team insists on trampling in all of the mud they could collect on their shoes into your house and onto your carpet. For times like these, turn to a professional. Speak with a cleaning experts at Colonial Cleanpro by calling 804 324 6471 and book a professional carpet cleaning in Chesterfield County. By using a purpose designed cleaning liquid and proprietary Cleanpro technology, a carpet cleaning expert can remove even the toughest stains on and in your carpet while leaving them able to be walked on in a matter of hours!

No Walking and Eating

Walking around with a handful of chips or loosely carrying a bowl of soup while you eat is the easiest way to cause a stain on your carpet. Institute a rule where anybody who is holding food or drinks isn’t allowed to take from it until they get to a table or a chair.

Designate a Craft Area

Children don’t enjoy drawing on the carpet, they simply enjoy drawing. For this reason, set up a space in your kitchen, laundry room, or other tiled floor room where your little one can get their creative juices flowing and paint you the next Mona Lisa, or some splashes of blue and red at the least.

Shoe Covers

If you are looking to keep an extreme level of debris out of your carpet, consider reusable or even throw-away shoe covers. These are be purchased quite cheap and are easily placed over your shoes before walking on carpet. Keep these near your front door to provide to guests as they enter.


If there are areas in your home which see regular foot traffic, consider placing rugs or carpet runners down to protect the carpet underneath. The most common area would be any hallways in your home.
