Does your carpet get lots of traffic? Is it about time to get a professional carpet cleaning? Every six to twelve months, carpets are due for a cleaning. Lifestyles may require more or less than that, depending on 1) whether shoes are worn inside 2) whether you have indoor pets 3) whether your small children are normal and make lots of messes. If your household can relate to any of these three situations, a professional carpet cleaning is likely needed every six months. For everyone else, if you generally don’t wear shoes inside, don’t have indoor pets, or have minimal messes on the carpet, you can most likely get away with having a professional carpet cleaning only once a year. If you are debating whether you should get a carpet cleaning sooner or later, here are a couple things to keep in mind.
Clean Carpet Looks Better
Carpet is one of the first things people notice when they walk in a house. It is not hard to see whether or not carpet has been well taken care of or neglected. In fact, if your carpet is dark and covered in dirt and stains, it could be a negative reflection of the rest of the house. Clean carpets look and feel better than dirty carpet. If you keep your carpets regularly cleaned, they will be able to retain their new look and will continue to add to the overall appearance of the house.
Clean Carpet Lasts Longer
Carpets that are regularly cleaned not only look better, but they last longer too. When carpets are cleaned, dirt, hair, oils and bacteria are removed from the carpet fibers. The carpet will last longer having these particles removed, because the dirt, oils and bacteria will be no longer be a factor in speeding up the breakdown of the carpet fibers. If you want to prolong the warranty of your carpets, take care of them with regular carpet cleanings. You can prevent the carpet fibers from breaking down, and having to replace your carpets earlier.
Clean Carpet is Safer
Clean carpets also make your home a healthier environment to live in. Going years without a professional carpet cleaning can compound the dirt and bacteria in the carpet, and put your family at a higher risk for more sickness and disease. Especially if you have pets or animals in your home that can be a carrier of bugs and disease, you will want to consider having your carpets cleaned much sooner. This will protect your carpet and the health of your family.
