Carpets are expensive and replacing them is even more expensive, so you probably want yours to last as long as possible. However, we all know that they can get dirty very quickly, especially if you share your home with children or pets.
When your carpet starts to look a little worse due to wear, you may think that the only option is to replace it. But we have good news for you – whether your carpet has an old, dull appearance, stains or a strange smell, there are products and tips that can help.
Do you want to revive your existing carpet instead of buying a new one? We’ve put together a selection of highly rated cheats and tools to help.
