1 Vacuum is essential: While carpet brooms and rods can be used to clean topical dust and dirt, use vacuum cleaners regularly to clean your carpets in monsoon.
2 Keep it dry: Avoid keeping windows or doors open to avoid water from seeping in. In case the carpet gets wet, keep the fan on or use a blow dryer to dry as much moisture as possible. You could even keep a dehumidifier in the room to keep the moisture in the air at bay. Damp carpets are prone to developing fungus. Also, never walk with wet footwear on the carpet as it may leave patches that are very difficult to clean.
3 Cleaning stains: In case your carpet is stained with food or tea, don’t ever use bleaching agents as they will spoil the wool or fibre and can also result in decolourisation. Instead, use special shampoo or detergent that are specially made for carpet cleaning. If the stain still persists, seek professional help.
