Taking Care of your Carpet
Proper Carpet Maintenance
How To Maintain Your CarpetRegular carpet maintenance can not only keep your floors looking clean, but will help reduce allergens and decrease your environmental footprint. Even if carpets are well kept and vacuumed, they may hold traces of air contaminants such as pet fur, dust mites, dirt, and pollen. If someone in your home has sensitivity to these allergens, the harshness of their symptoms may increase over time as the contaminants become trapped within the fibers of the carpet. Only a professional cleaning and maintenance can effectively remove these contaminants and improve the air quality of your home. As long as regular vacuuming is performed (weekly or biweekly depending on usage), a professional cleaning and maintenance is only needed every 18-24 months depending on the material of your carpet.
Even if you are not concerned about allergens and air quality, this regular cleaning is necessary to extend the life expectancy of your carpet. Even small amounts of soil and debris can wear down carpet fibers over time, which means you will need to replace your carpet earlier than expected.
This is an extra cost that can be avoided longer with proper carpet maintenance, and it also increases the amount of carpet that must be stored in landfills and the amount of resources used to create new carpet. While you can try to hold on to a worn out carpet, there will be a notable decrease in comfort and appearance that can be prolonged for years with professional carpet cleaning and maintenance.
