Experts and carpet manufacturers recommend that you should have your carpets cleaned at least once a year.
If your carpets get a lot of footfall – traffic – then they may need to be cleaned more often. Restaurants for example, get a lot of footfall all year around, and so their carpets get soiled very quickly. Footfall soiling combined with vapours and steam from cooking settle onto carpets and can make them appear quite dirty. in this case, once a year would not be enough, at least twice a year would be recommended.
There are several reasons why your carpets should be cleaned on a regular basis.
Removal of Dangerous Particles
Carpets can hold a lot of food particles, pet dander – dead skin, dirt and dust.
Anything that is on the soles of footwear can end up being transferred onto your carpet, and if not removed, can become embedded into your carpet.
This can create unwanted odours and stains.
These particles can also cause the spread of germs and bacteria throughout your home or workplace.
Carpet cleaning can remove the dangerous particles which will help keep you and your family healthy.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality can trigger or make worse, Allergy or Asthma symptoms.
Dirty carpets can be one of the causes of poor air quality, as dust and pollen particles can be trampled into the carpet fibers.
A thorough cleaning of your carpets will help improve your indoor air quality by removing dirt, dust and pollen particles.
If you have Asthma suffers in your family, then carpets may need cleaning more frequently.
Make Your Carpets Last Longer
If you have your carpets professionally cleaned on a regular basis, then you can help extend the life of carpets. They are some of the most expensive items you will purchase to furnish home. Carpets are an Investment, and it makes financial sense to look after that Investment.
Dirt and debris, if left in your carpets can cause them to deteriorate over time.
