If you’re wondering how often you should thoroughly clean your carpet or rugs, read on for our expert recommendations.
Do you have cigarette smokers in your home?
If you have household tobacco smokers who smoke indoors, it is important to thoroughly clean your carpet every three months in heavy-smoker homes and at least every six months in moderate-to-light smoker homes. Tobacco smoke contains numerous types of gases and particles, including some known to cause cancer. These harmful gases can be absorbed by dust in a room and end up on your carpet, rugs, upholstery, and other soft surfaces.
What to do if you have children at home?
If you have young children in your home, we recommend that you thoroughly clean your carpet at least every six months. But not for the reason you may think. Yes, children cause more spills and accidents, but we have machines and stain cleaners to help you deal with those daily problems. Our main concern is exposing your children to the bad things that are hidden in their carpet. The rug is soft and warm and is a great place for little ones to play, take a nap, have a picnic, or build forts. We recommend deep cleaning more frequently to remove these containers and reduce the possibility of exposure.
What about pets at home?
If you have furry family members living indoors, we recommend that you thoroughly clean your carpet at least every six months. Carpets and rugs do a fantastic job of trapping pet dander deep in the fibers. While the regular vacuum cleaner may help, it is not enough on its own, as it does not remove all the small particles that are hidden below the surface. Deep cleaning is the only way to thoroughly and thoroughly wash carpets and rugs. The absolute best way to remove pet allergens from your carpet is to deep clean your home every six months.
