4 Factors That Can Determine How Often You Should Schedule Carpet Cleaning Services


A clean carpet is arguably one of your home's most important features. It contributes to keeping your family healthy and maintaining your home's warmth and comfort. Despite vacuuming the carpet regularly, you'll need to have it professionally cleaned. Professional cleaning extends the lifespan of your carpeting, eliminates deeply ingrained dirt, and removes stains. So, how frequently should you have it cleaned? This piece will shine some light on the topic.

1. Level of Foot Traffic

Do you allow people to walk with shoes into your home? How many people live in your house? Shoes are known to bring in dirt and grit. When you allow anyone from outside to walk over your carpet with shoes on, you'll need to vacuum and clean the carpet often. Also, having many people in your house increases the likelihood of your carpet getting dirty quickly.

Vacuuming alone isn't enough to eliminate particles from the innermost layers of the carpet. Consider scheduling frequent cleaning services if your carpet withstands heavy shoe and foot traffic.

2. Someone in Your House Has Allergies

Carpets are known to trap dirt, pet hair, dust, and allergens. If you trample on the carpeting, the particles will dislodge and contaminate the air you breathe, triggering allergies and respiratory problems. Unfortunately, vacuuming doesn't suction all the dirt on your carpeting. You'll need constant deep cleaning solutions like hot water extraction to eliminate all the allergens and restore health in your home. If you or a loved one has allergies, it's best to schedule carpet cleaning frequently.  

3. The Color of Your Carpeting

Dark-colored carpets tend to mask stains and dirt. They don't need frequent cleaning as often as the lighter-colored alternatives. Light-colored carpets show stains, debris, and dirt easily, and it is hard to hide foot stamps on a light-colored carpet. Also, the longer the stains sit on the carpet, the harder they are to remove. However, frequent professional carpet cleaning might be the solution to maintaining your light-colored carpet's initial shade.

4. The Presence of Kids and Pets

A home with pets and kids is often messy. Your pet might urinate or defecate on the carpet, causing an unpleasant smell. Kids spill food and walk into the house with muddy shoes. Failure to clean up the mess can build up dirt and contaminants that make your home unhealthy and smelly. You might want to clean your carpet frequently if you have kids or pets.

The professional carpet cleaners will know the best techniques depending on the material, the dirt and stains, and the hygiene standards. They will also help you determine the best carpet cleaning frequency to ensure you have a clean, fresh, and good-looking carpet.
