There are lots of benefits to getting your carpets professionally cleaned. Carpets that are well taken care of—including getting cleaned by a commercial carpet cleaner—last longer, look newer longer, perform better, and are generally cleaner and healthier for the family members. But how often should you get your carpets professionally cleaned?
How Much Wear Do Your Carpets Take?
Experts advise that the frequency with which you have your carpets professionally cleaned depends in part on how much much wear your carpets take.
If you only have carpeting in your bedrooms, obviously there won’t be hourly wear on the carpeting throughout the day, since most adults tend to spend the better portion of the day in the living room, kitchen and dining room. If you have carpeting throughout your home, your carpets will be undergoing a lot of heavy wear and tear. In short, carpet that gets frequent use should be professionally cleaned at least every six months. Bedroom-only carpeting should be cleaned by a professional at least once a year.
Do You Have Children or Pets?
Children and pets place additional wear and tear on carpets. Of course, pets shed and have accidents, while children are prone to running in with mucky sneakers, spills and generally playing on the floor. These activities can all contribute to mashed carpet fibers and stains. If you are a family with one or more pets and children, you’ll want to get your carpets professionally cleaned, along with stain removal, every three months.
Do You Wear Shoes in the House?
Shoes bring in added dirt and debris from the house. When you family members walk around with shoes in the house, that dirt gets ground into the carpet fibers. If you and your family routinely wear your shoes in the house, you should get your carpets professionally cleaned every three months.
It’s important to remember that getting your carpets professionally cleaned on schedule leads directly to a healthier home environment, as well as a carpet that stays looking beautiful for as long as possible.
