How to keep the carpet in tip top condition

I have recently decided to install a carpet throughout my entire apartment. I love the warm feeling a carpet gives and that is what lead me to my decision. I chose a creamy colored one with a shaggy finish for my bedroom and a creamy colored plain one for the rest of the apartment.
