A little preventative maintenance will do wonders when it comes to prolonging the life and beauty of your carpet. First, always remove shoes before walking across your carpet, especially if you've been outside. Next, consider a carpet pad if you haven't already, as this will improve support. Finally, make sure to vacuum your carpet regularly using a manufacturer-approved appliance.
Use the right tool for the job
A high-quality vacuum cleaner is your carpet's best friend. Frequent vacuuming is necessary to remove the trapped dirt, dust, and fur from your carpet's fibers. But not just any vacuum will do, although modern vacuums have gotten much more effective. Here are some useful tips on vacuuming Shaw carpets.
