Did you know that, according to experts, at least once a year, you should have your carpet cleaned? Of course, in areas where there is a lot of traffic, you can certainly have someone come in to clean carpets more often.

You might be wondering what the basis is for the once a year cleaning guideline. So glad you asked! We’re going to show you a handful of reasons why having your carpet cleaned a minimum of once a year is a good idea.

Let’s start with something you may not have considered when talking about carpet – the air quality inside your home.

Indoor Air Quality

Does anyone in your home suffer from asthma or allergy symptoms? Were you aware that those can be worsened or triggered by poor indoor air quality? Bad air quality inside your home can be caused, in part, by a dirty carpet. The quality of the atmosphere inside your home can be improved tremendously with a thorough carpet cleaning.

Dangerous Particles Within Your Home

Dust, dirt, pet dander, food particles, and more can be held within the fibers of a carpet. Look at it this way – if it was on the bottom of your shoe, it can wind up in your carpet. Articles become embedded in carpeting if they are not removed. This causes stains and odors. Additionally, set and ready to spread throughout your home, these particles can also cause bacteria and germs. To remove dangerous particles and better ensure your family’s health, a carpet cleaning will be needed.

Carpet Maintenance Made Easy

To maintain your carpet, you must do your part. But a clean carpet is far easier to maintain than is a stained, smelly, and dirty one. Regular vacuuming helps, but don’t wait for your carpet to become filthy before vacuuming. Once a week is a good rule of thumb.

Get Everything Out!

Even with top-of-the-line vacuum cleaners, there is every possibility that residue will still be left behind after vacuuming. But with a professional carpet cleaning, no residue should be present when the carpet cleaning technician leaves your home. The equipment and products used by professionals help to ensure your carpet being the cleanest it’s been since it was first installed.

Clean Carpets Last Longer

Regular cleaning by a professional helps your carpet last longer. Over time, carpets deteriorate when grime and dirt are left to settle and work in. Carpet fibers are actually damaged by grime and dirt, and that means that the structure of your carpet will be ruined eventually.

Clean Carpets Simply Look Better

Getting all the stains out of carpet can be a tall order and can’t always be accomplished with over-the-counter products. Coffee spills, mud, dirt, pet stains, red wine – these are the worst things you can do to a carpet. But those stains can all be removed by a professional cleaning service. After a thorough cleaning, your carpet will look refreshed, revitalized, smell better, and enhance the overall appearance of the room.
