Professional carpet cleaners frequently get asked the question as to how often carpet actually needs to be professionally cleaned. There are a number of reasons as to why a homeowner would want their carpet cleaned. As to how frequently it should be done, “often” isn’t always a straight answer. There are a number of factors on how often carpets should or need to be deep or professionally cleaned. Today Carpet Care 2000 will share our best answer to this question and then you can decide how often your carpets need to be cleaned.
How Often Should You Clean Your Carpet with Pets?
For a home with pets, especially pets that frequently visit the outdoors, the carpets should be cleaned more often than those without pets. Pets have a way of bringing in dirt and debris from outside, not to mention their little accidents that your carpet can become the victim of. Homes with pets often need to be cleaned anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on the situation.
Deep Cleaning Stains Caused By Children
Children, or large families, means more foot traffic. Additionally, those with younger children find stains and little messes from juice, milk, and food all over their carpets. Large families also mean more dust. The majority of dust in a home is actually dead skin and hair particles which falls onto the carpet. Homes with larger families often need their carpet cleaned about every six months. However, combined with pets and children, your carpet may require more attention.
Best Carpet Cleaning Method for Allergies & Asthma
For those who suffer from indoor allergies, or even have respiratory problems such as asthma, may also need their carpets cleaned more often. Since carpet locks in dirt, hair, dead skin, pollen and dust mites that feed on our skin, people with allergies will suffer. Dust mites themselves shed skin and leave behind fences that later become airborne. All of this has an effect on those with allergies and respiratory problems. For those with allergies or asthma, you may want to have your carpet’s cleaned more often. Luckily, your body will let you know when it is time to have your carpets cleaned.
How Long Will Be Carpet Last?
our carpet’s age is also a factor. As carpet age they begin to thin out, making them more prone to dirt and stains. Especially in high traffic areas, the carpet underlayment is exposed and it is easier for dirt to get locked inside the carpet pile. Older carpets need to be cleaned more frequently in order to maintain a clean appearance.
You Should Have Carpets Professionally Cleaned At Least Once a Year!
Most carpets with moderate abuse typically only need to be cleaned about once a year. To maintain a healthy living environment, it is recommended having carpet cleaned yearly as well. However for those with large families, pets, or suffer from medical problems such as allergies or asthma, carpet often needs to be cleaned more frequently. In these situations you might find cleaning your carpets about every six months is beneficial. If the homeowner plays their part in maintaining clean carpet, you can extend the need for a professional carpet cleaning.
