Why Carpets need cleaning?
Soil settles into carpet fibers and causes carpets to break-down prematurely. That is why many carpet manufacturers recommend regular steam cleanings for carpets. A professional cleaning service like Carpestology removes soil that you can’t see with the naked eye, getting rid of any unnecessary wear and tear with the power of regular proper maintenance.
Soil acts somewhat like sandpaper, grinding away at carpet fibers and wearing them down. Carpet cleaning should be considered to be preventative maintenance. Be sure to take good care of your carpets and they will last for much longer and look much better as a result.
Does your Carpet have a Warranty?
Is there a warranty on your carpet that you want to preserve? If so, then be sure to look at the paperwork for the warranty. Many carpet manufacturers require you to get the carpets steam cleaned at least once a year to preserve the warranty.
If there isn’t a warranty, then how often you get the carpet cleaned is up to you. Here are some things to consider before hiring Carpestology cheap carpet cleaning services.
How Often Should Carpets be Cleaned?
Consider how much traffic there is on your carpets. The more people you have moving around your home, the more traffic they get. A large family will need to get their carpets cleaned more often than a childless couple or a single person. Large families can leave their carpets for up to half a year at the most, while single people can go a good amount longer.
If you have kids in your home, then there are other considerations. Keeping carpets clean keeps them free from disease and allergens and ensures your kids are happy and healthy. In that case, we recommend cleaning around every 3-6 months.
Homes with Pets & Carpet cleaning
Pets are another important consideration. Homes that have indoor pets will require more regular cleanings. Once again you’re looking at around 3-6 months, particularly if your pet is prone to accidents. Homes with animals should get their carpets cleaned more often as pets shed their fur and dander over carpets.
Vacuuming regularly can extend the time between cleanings, but by “regularly” we mean around three times a week. It might be easier on you get the carpet cleaned by someone else every few months instead of cleaning it yourself every other day.
Every home is different and is going to have different carpets. So there isn’t a hard and fast rule about how often carpets should be cleaned unless there is a warranty that you have to adhere to. If that’s the case, be sure to follow those instructions and keep records of any professional cleanings you have done.
Otherwise, stick to your best judgement to determine if it’s time to get the carpets cleaned. Think about how much traffic the carpet gets and where it is coming from. Think of cleaning your carpet kind of like cleaning your teeth; every six months is fine, but every three months would be best.
