1) Area Rugs:
Tracking dust from outside is inevitable. For high traffic areas and entryways, it is recommended to use area rugs and floor mats to reduce dust and dirt from entering your home. It will reduce the amount of dust and dirt carried onto to your carpets if placed correctly.
2) “No shoes inside” policy:
Initiate a “No shoes inside” policy by placing a shoe rack outside the door or at the entrance to prompt family and guests to remove their footwear. This initiation will reduce dirt and dust carried onto the carpets via shoes.
3) Place mats around your Christmas tree:

4) Carpet Protection
When your carpet cleaning professional comes for an annual clean. Inform them for carpet protection as well. Using protection on carpets increases the durability of the carpets and prevents dust, mites and mold growth. It is comparatively easier to remove stains from a protected carpet.
