How Often Should I Clean My Carpets?

Oakville Carpet Cleaning,Amazing Results cleans your carpet professionallyThere are several things to consider when deciding how often you should have your carpets professionally cleaned.  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:

KIDS!
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 it’s a good idea to have your carpet professionally cleaned.

PETS!

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…

TRAFFIC AREAS

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, smoke indoors, you should vacuum 2 to 4 times a week, and have your traffic areas professional 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.

ALWAYS REMEMBER!

Follow the carpet manufacturer’s recommendations and this will help you preserve the quality of your carpet and will ensure you maintain your warranty.
