Don’t Skip Your Next Carpet Cleaning! here's whyWe totally understand that your life is busy and you have a todo list a mile long. It’s tempting to push some of those items to the side or ignore them altogether. However, your next professional carpet cleaning shouldn’t be one of those things.

Our goal is to make your life easier and your home healthier. If those are your priorities too, you really should get regular carpet cleanings.

Why To Prioritize Carpet Cleaning

Your carpets are used more than almost anything else in your home. You, your kids, and your pets walk on them all day long. Carpets acquire dirt, bacteria, and allergens during all of that use. Not only does that mean that your carpets look dirty after a period time but they also can also pose a health hazard to your family. In fact, carpets can actually be a leading cause of allergies, asthma, and other illnesses. This makes sense if you think about how often we lounge on or touch our carpet, plus that fact that every time you walk through your carpets, you kick up dust and other allergens. 

This means that if you or your family suffers from allergies, not cleaning your carpets can make your life much harder and increase your allergy symptoms.

Something else to remember is that dirt in your carpets fibers can damage your carpets. Over time, the dirt particles wear down the carpet fibers, causing damage. Plus, the longer stains sit your carpets, the harder to remove they become. In short, going too long without cleaning your carpet can actually damage your carpet and make it harder to clean. This means you’ll have to replace your carpets sooner, costing you more money.

How Often You Should Have Your Carpets Cleaned

So now that you know that you need to get your carpets cleaned, just how often should you do it? It’s recommended to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least every 6 months, or every 3-4 months if you have children or pets.
