Most of us aren’t too thrilled when it’s time to clean the house. There’s just so much other fun stuff to do! Vacuuming your carpets on a regular basis has many benefits. Carpets provide a place for airborne contaminants to stay until they are physically removed, reducing the chance you’ll inhale them. Your house looks so much cleaner when you’ve finished vacuuming and doing it will make your carpet last longer and help keep your family healthy too.
Health & Other Benefits of Vacuuming Your Carpet
When you empty a vacuum bag after vacuuming your house you might be surprised at how full it is. We lose almost 1,000,000 skin particles every day and up to 50-100 strands of hair and allergens that are attached to our pets can stay strong for months. So many tiny microbes just floating around all the time that lead to many problems with people that have asthma and inhalant-related allergies like hay fever. Wheezing is caused by bacteria, dust mites and mold making it hard to breathe and hay fever causes cold-like symptoms and if you have pets these microbes increase. If you aren’t vacuuming properly or infrequently, these reactions can be more bothersome than they need to be. All those microbes that are floating around will inevitably land on your carpet and because it’s impossible to sanitize your carpets completely, regular vacuuming will help eliminate these pollutants and contaminants. Research shows that people with a clean house are more likely to be healthier and more active, making regular vacuuming physically beneficial. Vacuuming has you exercising and getting rid of embedded microbes at the same time and you can be happy with yourself knowing you are taking an active part in keeping those family members healthier that have issues with allergies. Freshly vacuumed carpet also gives you the sense of accomplishment. Seeing a difference in how clean your carpet is and looks will be a mood-booster. When you vacuum your carpets on a regular basis you will save money because they last longer when maintained properly, preventing you from replacing it sooner than needed. Dirty carpets can make you sick and cause you to miss work and your family will stay healthier, reducing the money you spend on doctor visits.
How Often Should I Vacuum My Carpets with Pets?
Frequent vacuuming removes more dirt that won’t get ground into the carpet and harder to get next time you have them cleaned by a professional. Dirt will become attached to the carpet fibers if it’s not cleaned on a regular basis and ground-in soil is hard to clean. It can actually cause the carpet to become discolored eventually. Recommendation on how often carpets should be vacuumed will vary depending on your situation but many experts suggest that your carpets be vacuumed twice a week. High-traffic areas should be done more often and having pets mean you may have to vacuum daily to remove dirt, hair, dander and allergens.
