We always think that to keep our carpet clean, all we have to do is just do some vacuuming and we’re good to go. Assuming that doing it every month and blotting out the occasional stain will work, right?
Wrong! What we’re forgetting or never knew is that professionally steam cleaning a carpet is a must for every home and this should be done every 12 to 24 months.
In other words, vacuuming our carpets will never be enough; neither is steaming the carpet ourselves. Professional carpet cleaning, like it or not, is the only way to protect our carpets in most cases. This is also a way in ensuring that our health is never at risk.
The quality of air indoor can be up to eight to ten times worse than outdoor air quality, if we don’t clean our flooring, drapes, and let air flow inside on a regular basis. When millions of Americans suffer from allergies due to indoor factors, then air quality becomes an alarming issue.
Robin Wilson recommends frequent steam cleaning of carpets for a dust-free home; she recommends calling for professional help every six to eight months, and four to six WEEKS if there are pets.
Experts agree that professional carpet cleaning services are a necessity – we shouldn’t attempt to clean it up ourselves. Only steam cleaning can effectively help in lifting off the dust embedded deep within our carpets. If we leave dust to accumulate in our carpets, it will wear down and rip the carpet’s fibers. If we just vacuum our carpets without any professional consultation, this leads to formation of mold and becomes more harmful in the long run.
In between carpet cleaning, vacuum at least weekly or more frequently when there are pets
A carpet can last a lifetime, as long as it’s regularly cleaned. Carpet lifespan, can range depending on quality – most of these are made to last longer as long as we keep it dust free.
