For things that have an oil base and are prone to getting crusted over after drying―like shoe polish or nail polish―these need to be cleaned in a different manner. The first thing that needs to be done is lightly scraping the carpet of the residues of the substance with a metal or steel object. This should be done with extreme caution so that the threads of the carpet do not start to come off. Once that is done, use a damp, white cloth and a dry cleaning agent on it. Use this to gently clean the spot so that the residues dissolve and you can scoop them with the cloth. Once this step is over, dry the carpet.
Although it is stain-resistant, it is very difficult to remove stains that are oil-based. They tend to become permanent quickly. Polypropylene is an oil-lover and will soak it, making it difficult to remove even with a vacuum. Also, shampooing the rug won't help as it is water-resistant and will make the water droplets float on top itself.
Smoothen the surface of the steps and vacuum it. In case of wooden ones, see that there are no nails sticking out. Whereas, in case of cement staircases, see that the cracks and corners are properly filled. Also, if you are replacing your old carpet, it is not advisable to reuse the old carpet pads or tack strips.
It does not absorb dust and dirt, the outer layer does not allow the dust particles to enter the inner layer, which helps to keep the rug clean. It just needs regular dusting and a proper wash once in a year if you want to clean the rug.
