Carpets add comfort and style to your home, but your daily routines can be tough on even the best quality carpet. Your carpet is a significant component of your living space, so naturally you want it to maintain it well for several years. Additionally, you want your carpet to be free of dust and odor for a more hygienic environment. Maintaining your carpet well can also mean better use of your investment and not spending a fortune on its replacement.
How Often Should You Deep Clean?
The recommendation from the Carpet and Rug Institute is to have your carpet professionally deep-cleaned every 12 to 18 months. Of course, these are general guidelines, and your needs could vary depending on how much your carpet gets used. It depends on your lifestyle, and you may very well need a deep clean every 6 to 12 months.
How Often Do You Vacuum?
If you keep your carpet generally clean, an in-depth cleaning schedule can be extended longer. If you vacuum at least once a week, it will help your carpet last longer because it removes the loose particles on the surface of the carpet. A deep clean is needed when the dust particles settle deeper and start abrading the fibers.
Do You Have Allergies?
Carpet fibers act as a filter and collect much of the dust and allergens that are floating around in the air. These allergy-inducing particles can build up in your carpet fibers. When these allergens accumulate in your carpet, they are released when someone walks over the carpet. If you are prone to allergies, you may want to hire a professional to deep clean your carpets more often than recommended.
Do You Have Children and Pets?
Your deep-cleaning schedule will also depend upon whether you have pets in your home. Additionally, young kids are more prone to spills and spatters across your carpet. No matter how careful you are, you will need heavier maintenance of your carpet if you are dealing with children and pets in your home.
