Your carpet is designed to enhance your interior, but if you neglect it, it might cause more harm than good. It can trap dust that settles from your indoor air, pet dander from your family dog, and everything that managed to stick to the sole of your shoes. Over time, all these pollutants will compromise the quality of the air that you breathe inside.
Regular vacuuming helps and is necessary. However, it is not enough. You need to periodically have your carpet cleaned by professionals.
How often should you deep clean your carpet? Before we answer this question, let us discuss why you should hire specialists to do it.
Why You Should Hire Professional Carpet Cleaners
Carpets look simple, but surprisingly, they are hard to clean. Some of the dust and dirt can make their way through all the carpet pile and settle deep into the backing, which regular household vacuum cleaners could siphon.
You can extend your carpet’s life by having it professionally cleaned from time to time. Aside from having the best cleaning equipment, professionals have access to cleaning agents that are not available in your favourite DIY shop.
How Often Should You Have Your Carpet Deep Cleaned?
The answer to this question would depend on many things. It includes how heavy the foot traffic is and whether you have pets or very active kids. Does any member of your family have allergies? Do any of them smoke indoors? If you say yes to either of these questions, it would also have an impact on how often you should deep clean your carpet.
If you have many of these “risk factors,” you should have your carpet cleaned by professionals every three months. It will help ensure that your family is breathing clean air and that you are safe from allergens throughout the year. Otherwise, deep cleaning every six months should be enough.
When it comes to vacuuming, the same principle applies. If you have a large household generating heavy foot traffic, have a few dogs and cats running around, or have small children rolling around on the floor, you should vacuum your carpet daily. If not, vacuuming twice a week will do.
