My friends DS coloured our fireplace bricks at our old place. This was years ago, but the only thing that I found that helped was super hot water and lots of white cloths to blot with.

We were rug free as you put it for a number of years. It was just easier when the kids were babies/toddlers. I quite liked it at the time, but I much prefer it now that we have a couple area rugs out. Its softer for the kids to play on, toys dont roll under the furniture as easily lol, but most importantly it really helps with accoustics. The house doesnt seem as loud or like a hall with the rugs down.
We live in a small house too and love the trundle bed. My boys share a room in bunk beds, then we have a pull out trundle (looks ikea-ish) that pulls out from underneath the bottom bunk for bedtime.

The kids all prefer the trundle, idk why, but we had to make a turn chart to...
If you are not up for doing it yourself, I'd call around and ask what products different cleaners use. We have a local guy who is all natural. He uses natural products to spot clean stains, then just steams to rinse and disinfect the carpet afterwards. We were a little doubtful when we first talked to him that it would be effective, but the carpet in the boys room really did come up nicely

My 7 yr. old DS's anxiety has been dramatically increasing this last year and I dont know where to start looking for website and books to read. My dh is not on board and Im feeling pretty isolated.
