Extend the Life of Your Carpet with Regular Cleaning
Carpet cleaning is a lot like going to the dentist – you know you should go twice a year but you keep putting it off. But like your teeth, regularly cleaning your carpet will remove dirt build-up, helping it look better and last longer.
Here are the top three reasons you should clean your carpet regularly:
- Appearance: Clean floors make everything look better. When you have company over do you want them to look at a dirty and stained floor or a clean rug? Of course you want a clean floor. A clean floor shows people that you care about your home and take pride in its appearance.
- Longer Life: 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 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 benefit in cleaning your carpet.
- A Healthy Home: Do you want your kids crawling around on dirty carpet? Of course not. Carpet is a giant air filter for your home, trapping dust, dirt and contaminants including 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 contribute to a “not-so-fresh” odor in your home!
So how often should you clean your carpet? Don’t wait until you “see” the dirt – by then the dirt has already started to do damage to your carpet’s fibers. At a minimum, you should clean your carpet once a year. If you have children, pets, allergies, or wear shoes in the house, the experts recommend cleaning every 6 months, typically in the spring and fall.
