Top Tips for Keeping Your Family Room Carpet Clean

Fed up with your dirty family room carpet? Your family room carpet faces a fair amount of wear, between constant foot traffic to spills and stains, it can feel like the carpet is constantly dirty. Fortunately, with some of the top family room carpet trends at the moment and these top cleaning tips, you can keep your carpet looking good as new for years to come.

Vacuum Regularly

The best way to keep your carpet looking good as new is to vacuum regularly. Regular vacuuming will not only ensure that your home is more hygienic, but it will help to prolong the life of your carpet. Vacuuming your family room regularly will remove allergens as well as any unwanted dirt and grime, keeping your home clean while improving the health of your family.

Deal with Spills Right Away

While it can be tempting to leave a spill to clean up later, it is important that you clean spills quickly. Even if you don’t have any carpet cleaner to hand, you should try your best to remove the spill with what you have. This may mean mopping up the spill with a paper towel, but removing the stain as quickly as possible will help to prolong the life of your family room carpet.


When it comes to cleaning up spills from your carpet it is essential that you blot – do not rub! We recommend using a white cloth or towel with a cleaning solution. By using a white cloth, you will prevent any colour from the cloth or towel from transferring onto the carpet. Gentle blotting will soak up the liquid from the carpet without spreading the spill around a larger area.

Door Mats

Whether you have a rule to take shoes off at the door or not, at some point in time, someone will enter the house with dirty shoes. For this reason, you should ensure that you have a high-quality door mat at your front door. Even if you regularly wear shoes around your home, this will help to decrease the amount of dirt and grime being brought in to your home from the streets.

Family Room Carpet Trends

If your carpet is already damaged and suffering from the damage caused by everyday life, a new carpet may be the best solution for your home. This will give your family room carpet a fresh start, allowing you to properly care for your carpet from day one.
