Stains will set and, after a while, the installation just won’t look clean, no matter how often you do it. When you don’t clean properly, you also run the risk of excess moisture, usually tracked in on the soles of shoes. That creates ripples and dirt will settle into those little grooves. Then you’ll need re-stretching to get rid of the wrinkles and ripples. By the way, that isn’t just about protecting your carpet investment, but also your health investment because dirty carpets attract bacteria which, in turn, will trigger asthma and allergy episodes.
What about a hardwood flooring investment? This is an installation that lasts for years and never goes out of style. It’s easy to maintain, but, remember, hardwood can be damaged by excess water to wipe spills immediately. If you use a polish, be sure to wipe it thoroughly, so no liquid gets in between the planks. Also, avoid wearing high heels on the floor; place floor mats near entrances so people can wipe their shoes and not track dirt and moisture into the rest of the home. If you are moving furniture, use protective pads to avoid scratching.
