I lived in a house with synthetic carpets everywhere and the only way to get hairs off them was with a damp rubber glove - Henry Hoover didn't stand a chance.

Are they better than the ones I previously lived with in terms of cleaning??

Firstly I have 5 ikea synthetic rugs and there all in perfect condition - had some 5 years... secondly I have cream synthetic carpets because they don't stain and they have been down 2 years with a messy todler and they are still in perfect condition? I have 2 Dyson hoovers one corded and one wireless answer never had a problem there lovely and brought them again for another house we just purchased smile
