Routine vacuuming does the trick.

Dirt and grease are regular unwelcomed visitors that stay on our carpets. The longer you leave them on the carpet, the harder it is to remove them from the carpet. Always include vacuuming as part of your cleaning to-do list. Frequent vacuuming will let you take out the dirt and grease sooner, avoiding dust build-up. Vacuuming thrice a week is fine for carpet maintenance, but you may want to consider doing it daily to remove loose dirt. Vacuuming can remove more than 80 percent of dry soil on a daily basis.

Blot spills immediately.

Once you accidently spill liquids onto the carpet, don’t rub them off. Blot them immediately. Rubbing the spill will only worsen it since this will only make the affected area larger. Blotting will lessen the occurrence of stain on your carpet.
