When Is The Best Time Of Year To Clean Your Carpets?
Category : Golden Glove Clean
The carpet in your house is a major part of your everyday living space as well a sizable monetary investment. You will want to preserve its appearance for as long as possible.
The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends having your carpet professionally deep-cleaned every 12-18 months. However, depending on your lifestyle and personal preferences, you might need a professional carpet cleaning every 6 to 12 months. Here are some factors to consider when determining how frequently you should get your carpet cleaned:
Do you vacuum regularly?
It is important to vacuum at least once a week. Weekly vacuuming removes loose particles on the surface of the carpet before they settle deeper and start to wear down the carpet fibers.
Does anyone in your household have allergies?
Carpet fibers act as a filter, eventually collecting much of the dust and allergens that float around in the air. As the months pass, these allergy-inducing particles can build-up in the carpet fibers. Only a deep cleaning can remove these allergens. And if allergies are chronic, frequent cleanings are necessary to alleviate recurring symptoms.
What color is your carpet?
Light-colored carpet can be notorious for revealing dirt and stains. Maintaining the appearance of a light-colored carpet will almost always require a more frequent professional cleaning than will a darker carpet.
Does your warranty require a particular cleaning schedule?
Many carpet manufacturers require you to follow a certain cleaning regimen in order to keep your warranty in full effect. It is not uncommon to have the warranty state that you must have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once or maybe twice a year.
Do you have pets or small children?
Pets, of course, are prone to occasionally urinate, defecate and vomit on carpets, and these accidents can lead to unsightly stains. Kids are also likely to create food smears, spills, and splatter. Whether it is fruit juice or finger paint, parents may find it challenging to keep carpets looking new.
