Over time, frequent cleaning and proper care maintains beauty, and saves wear and tear. Vacuum carpets thoroughly at least twice a week, and deep-clean them every six to 18 months. You can rent a machine and do it yourself, but for high-density carpets, call in a pro. Always clean up drips and spills immediately.
For spot-cleaning, mix 1 tablespoon each, of ammonia, white vinegar and liquid dish detergent with 1 cup of cold water in a plastic quart container. Close the container and shake it until it foams. Put some on the spot, dab or brush, and blot dry. Save carpet remnants for future patches.
