Carpet / April 19, 2018 / Anita Griffith
Prevention. First of all, you should try your level best to prevent problems from arising in the first place. For instance, if it is an area rug, make sure you and your kids remove their boots prior to stepping on it. Aside from this, food and drinks should also be kept away from the rug area if possible. Usually pets love to sleep on doormats, but make sure they do not. Instead, you should train your pets to make use of cats/dogs beds. Moreover, if your rug is expensive or decorative, it's not a good idea to spread it around an area where there is a lot of traffic. Ideally, you can place it in a doorway that people don't use very often. Make sure you don't put them in the main gate as this area gets a lot of traffic.
Some carpets are made with very thick piling, which can be very comfortable for walking around in bare feet. These types of carpets, though, can hide crumbs more easily and be more difficult to clean. This kind of carpet is probably not a good fit for a family that has children and pets crawling around on the floor. If children will be crawling and playing on the floor, you want a carpet that is easy to keep clean and less likely to hide little things that a baby could pick up and put in their mouth.
