Stop Dirt at the Door

A great way to start keeping your carpet clean is by preventing dirt and grime from getting on the carpet in the first place. The following helpful hints can stop dirt in its tracks.

  • Use mats: Outdoor and indoor mats or runners can reduce the amount of dirt that enters your Hillsborough home or business.
  • Take off your shoes: You can save wear and tear on carpet by asking your house guests to take their shoes off before entering your Hillsborough, CA home.
  • Change your air filters: Be sure to change the air filters in your heating and air-conditioning systems as recommended by the manufacturer’s directions. The more dust and particles removed by the filter, the fewer that fall onto your carpet.
