How do people keep their cream carpets clean ? How do you have wooden floors and not get it mucky? I have 4 dc me and dh at home. When the dc walk around the house their socks become filthy underneath even though I have hoovered and washed floors that morning. We almost always take off or shoes in the corridor. I have wooden floors all downstairs and cream carpets upstairs but the carpet is still ok as it's new. I've seen people's home with beautiful carpet all through their home and it always looks so fresh and clean. I have a clean home but I've always had issues with my floors. I've included a pic of my floors not sure if this makes any difference in your advice. Thank you.
