Carpet cleaning is one task on a list of many to-do’s around the home. Life gets busy, and it’s easy to push things to the back burner with so much on your plate. However, clean carpets are an essential part of a healthy home.
Here are just a few reasons why carpet cleaning should be a priority when it comes to taking care of a home, and recommendations for how often to schedule your professional cleanings.
Why Regular Carpet Cleaning Is Essential
As you know, our carpets see a lot of traffic each day. Our floors act as giant filters, trapping dirt and grime from foot traffic, direct contact, and even airborne particles. This wor
ks well to keep dangerous particles trapped away from our families and pets—at least for a while.
Over time, our carpets fill up with odor, bacteria, allergens, and soil. Rather than absorbing these contaminants, our floors begin releasing allergens and bacteria into the air. Carpets become danger zones for asthma and other illnesses—which is especially concerning when you consider how often we lay around on and touch our carpets.
If there are pets in the home, there is typically significantly more bacteria, allergens, hair, and odors in your carpet. As pets urinate on floors and the moisture dries, pungent odor crystals are trapped beneath the surface. These super concentrated odor crystals permeate the air with a nasty smell and can’t be removed with simple cleaning. Typically, a special Pet Urine Removal Treatment is required.
How Often To Professionally Clean Carpets
In order to keep you home safe from harmful allergens and bacteria, it’s recommended to have your carpets professionally cleaned every six months. If there are pets in the home, carpet cleaning and pet urine removal should be scheduled every three to four months. It’s also convenient to have all of your cleaning done in one swoop and schedule your upholstery cleaning for the same time as your carpet cleaning.
