When Should You Call a Carpet Cleaner

If you have carpets in your home, you’re going to need to get them cleaned from time to time. You might be wondering how often you need to get this done.

How Do They Get So Dirty?

You might not notice your carpets getting dirty if they are darkly coloured, but if you have light carpets, you will certainly notice straight away when they get dirty.

Every time someone walks into the house, they bring with them dirt from outside. You might have a no-shoes-inside rule, which will definitely reduce the amount of wear and tear your carpets receive, but it won’t stop the dirt altogether.

People tend to have sweaty socks, so the moisture and oil from their feet can get into the carpet. If you have a pet, your carpets are going to get dirty much quicker, especially if your dog is allowed inside.

Carpets also wear from the friction of being walked on. You may notice that the entry to your house tends to have flat, worn carpet. This is because it’s the most used part of the carpet in your house.

Time to Call Us

Carpets should be professionally steam cleaned once every six months or so, and definitely at the end of the lease if you’re living in a rented property and want to get your bond money back.

Regular cleaning will increase the life of your carpets. It’s definitely worth looking after your carpets rather than forking out large amounts of money for new carpets.

If you get your carpets professionally cleaned, another perk is that they look and smell great! Your home environment will be a lot nicer with clean carpets.

If you have small children, having clean carpets is a must, as they spend plenty of play time on the floor. You don’t want them picking up any nasties from the carpet.

If it’s time for you to get your carpet cleaned, give us a call today!
