If you have carpet in your home, you’re familiar with “high traffic” areas. Those gray strips of carpet that looked good when you first installed the carpet will turn into a long project.

While simple, following a regular vacuuming schedule will remove a large portion of the dirt being brought into your home. Also, consistent vacuuming will help the “light” and “fluffy” look stay for much longer.

This builds up over time and settles into your carpet fibers.
