How Often Should You Clean Your Carpet?

  • by

For most people, carpet cleaning only occurs to them either right before they move out, or for that once a year “spring cleaning.” While these are great times to get your carpet cleaned, dirt, dust, and allergens will continue to get trapped in your carpet. Regular carpet cleaning is also a great way to extend the life of the carpet in your home. All new carpet isn’t cheap, so making it last as long as possible is a smart strategy.

Do You Know What Else Is Living In Your Home?

During those long periods of time without a proper cleaning, your carpet could become a hotbed of different allergens. By regularly cleaning your carpet, you are also keeping your home cleaner and safer for your family. Substances like pollen, animal dander, dust mites, allergens, and mold can grow in your carpet as time progresses. While your carpet may seem clean after a fresh vacuum, there are many things under the service you can’t see with the naked eye. There are millions of tiny particles living in your carpet rent free, and possibly making your family sick, or more prone to allergies.

Your Carpet Needs Regular Baths

For anyone living in a home with animals, or small children, you witness what your carpet goes through on a daily basis. Muddy paw prints, foot prints, spilled drinks, flung food, and potty accidents, are just a few all too familiar reminders of what your carpet as seen and soaked up over the past few months. Just because you dabbed it with some carpet cleaner and let it dry, doesn’t mean you’ve gotten it all. Most times, liquids that seep into carpet can soak into the lower layers. These layers can’t be cleaned with a wash cloth and a spray bottle of detergent.

So When Should I Get My Carpet Cleaned?

If you haven’t gotten your carpets cleaned yet this year, contact a cleaner now and get it scheduled! After you get your first deep clean, we suggest to continue cleaning your carpet every 6 months at the bare minimum. It might seem like a hassle, but when you start to regularly clean your carpet, you will notice huge differences in the look, feel, and smell, of your carpet!
