How Often Should I Clean My Carpets?

A carpet cleaner will get this question asked at every job. The simple answer is every 6-12 months.

To protect your family and pets (even though they cause all the mess) carpets need to be professionally cleaned each year right from the beginning. You wouldn’t run your car for four years without regular servicing and expect it to perform like new. Your carpets are the same, you must service them regularly from day one for optimum performance. When cleaned and maintained correctly carpet life is significantly extended. So don’t be afraid to have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly (at least every 6-12 months) even when they don’t appear to be particularly dirty. It’s the unseen soils, bacteria and allergens that cause the real damage both to your carpets and to your health.

In some cases indoor carpets are much more infected with bacteria then what some bathrooms are dust mites and carpet beetles are just some of the creepy crawlies that live in your carpet not to mention dead insects pet and human hair pollen grain and skin cells from your family and visitors.
