Here in Minnesota, our four seasons can be tough on carpet. From mud and leaves to snow and ice, we track a lot of dirt and debris onto our flooring. Cleaning the carpet at least once a year is a must, but we know it can be a daunting task. So we thought we’d share three good reasons to clean the carpet – and remind you that Broadway rents carpet cleaners, fans and everything you need to clean those dirty floors.
Clean floors make everything look better. When you have company over, do you want them to look at a dirty floor? Of course not! A clean floor shows people that you care about your home and take pride in its appearance.
Clean carpet lasts longer. Dirt is abrasive and will ruin your carpet if left in place. Every step you take on the soil in your carpet grinds it further into the fibers. This permanently damages the carpet and will cause it to wear out much quicker. Compare the price of carpet replacement and the price of regular cleanings, and you will see the significant cost benefit to cleaning your carpet.
A Healthy Home:
Carpet is essentially a giant air filter for your home, trapping dust, dirt and contaminants. These can include dust mites, feces, pet dander, salt, road grime, dirt, and much more. And like an air filter, your carpet needs to be cleaned from time to time. Once your carpet is full of soil, it stops improving your air quality and can become smelly or even make you sick.
So how often should you clean the carpet?
Don’t wait until you can see visible dirt. By then, the dirt has already started to do damage to carpets fibers. At a minimum, you should clean your carpet once a year. If you have children, pets, allergies, or wear shoes in the house, we recommend cleaning every six months, typically in the spring and fall.
