When deciding how often you should have your carpets professionally cleaned, there are several things to consider.
At Amazing Results Carpet Cleaning, we know that cleaning your carpets regularly keeps your floor coverings looking great on the surface, and it also helps to remove abrasive dirt particles that damage the fibres, cause premature wear and eventually shorten the life of your carpet.
When looking for carpet cleaning in Oakville and Burlington, the following factors should be considered when determining how frequently you should have your carpets professionally cleaned: traffic, vacuuming and spot cleaning frequency, and soil level. And….let’s not forget:
They can do a number on your carpets! With children in the home, the suggested amount of time between professional carpet cleaning can range from 6 months to 1 year. On average, about every 9 months, having your carpet professionally cleaned is a good idea.
We all love our pets! Unfortunately, with pets in the home, you should be having your carpet professionally cleaned every 6 to 12 months. We would suggest more frequently if your pet has bladder/urine issues. The reason for more frequent cleanings is due to the fact that your pets drop dander, hair, and dust on your carpet fibres. Frequent vacuuming can extend the time needed between professional cleanings, but frequent vacuuming can mean three times a week or more – and who has time for that?
Here’s another handy way to determine the frequency of professional carpet cleaning…
- Light traffic – If your carpet needs to be vacuumed once a week, you should have a professional deep carpet cleaning every 12 to 18 months.
- Normal traffic – If you have kids, you should vacuum traffic areas once or twice a week and have your traffic areas treated by a professional carpet cleaner every 6 to 12 months.
- Heavy traffic – If you have pets or smoke indoors, you should vacuum 2 to 4 times a week and have your traffic areas professionally deep cleaned every 3 to 6 months.
- Extreme traffic – Large families and multiple pets will require daily vacuuming and a deep professional carpet cleaning every 2 to 3 months.
