Taking Shoes Off in House
The first tip we have for you is to have your family and friends take their shoes off before they go upstairs. The bottom of your shoes end up with all sorts of dirt and grime on them as you walk around throughout the day. Wearing these shoes as you go up and down the stairs will stain your carpet. Simply eliminating shoes on the stairs will significantly increase the cleanliness of your carpet.

Our next tip for keeping your carpeted stairs clean is to not allow any animals on your stairs. Even the cleanest of animals will track extra dirt onto the carpet on your stairs. In addition to tracking extra dirt onto your carpet, animals are notorious for ruining carpet. Sometimes they chew on the carpet and ruin it.
