US home designer offers carpet cleaning tips
Domestic cleaning could be made easier after the owner of a US-based home design firm issued a number of tips on the best ways to set about carpet cleaning.
Chrysteen Braun told the Long Beach Gazette that steam cleaning can often be the best way of sprucing up a dirty stretch of carpet and advised against "over the counter" cleaning products.
Ms Braun owns Aegean Designing Whims, which specialises in home decoration, with flooring a particular forte of the company's since it was established in 1970.
People who live in an agricultural setting may be able to avoid carpets becoming caked in dirt by regularly vacuuming before soil has been embedded into the fibre.
Many homeowners aim to avoid laying carpets in areas of their properties that see a lot of people passing through with their outside footwear on.
Hard floor cleaning can be less arduous, but Ms Braun noted that it is still possible to maintain nice carpets without the worry of them being worn out.
"Remove a dent by dampening the area with a white rag, then heat the area with a hair dryer as you rake the carpet with a spoon," she told the publication.
