Please consider the following tips
Rotate (replace or turn your carpet)
At least four times a year to distribute the wear on your carpet
Place your rugs and carpets to one side of the room
Avoid putting them in front of high traffic areas, such as doorways.
Carpet protectors, made from heavy woven canvas or plastic strips.
Keep in mind that this method can be a tripping hazard.
Do not walk on your carpets wearing heels
Specifically stilettos, as they can pierce holes in the carpet, causing extreme damage.
Reposition your furniture often
And use castor cups beneath your heavy furniture to avoid permanent indentations from the fiber being crushed.
Antique carpets, more often than not made from wool or silk, are susceptible to insects.
At least twice a year inspect your carpets and rugs thoroughly for holes, webbing, and insect droppings.
Avoid keeping your carpet in direct sunlight.
Sun damage causes fading, premature aging, and can cause the carpet to become lighter in certain areas (particularly when your rug is dyed with natural substances).
If you cannot avoid this
Rotate your rug at least twice a month. This will not stop the fading process but will instead create more even, unvarying colors as it fades.
To straighten tangled fringe
Flip the rug by taking hand of one end of the carpet and walking it over to the other, leaving the rug upside down and the fringe straightened.
Do not brush or comb the fringe if some remain twisted; rather, gently shake the rug.
