Some things I want to add just in case down the road, someone does a search for carpet cleaning.
Hot water extraction is of course recommended by ALL manufacturers for nylon carpets.
Dry cleaning can leave more residue which will help your carpet to soil quicker.
It is a good method for cleaning if you have a party later that day, and you absolutely need dry carpet, but not for regular maintenance.
Think of carpet cleaning similiar to hair cleaning. How many of you would dry clean your hair if available? How many of you would do it everyday as regular maintenance?
That's right, grit causes major damage to the fibers, and helps break them down.
Taking your shoes off will help more than upgrading the pad.
Regular VACUUMING rather than constant cleaning will help the most.
Cleaning by HWE should really only need to be done every 12-18 months. Vacuuming with a nice vacuume cleaner will do wonders. Spend the extra money on a new cleaner, it will save you money in the long run.
And take those shoes off!
