When should I clean carpet flooring?

Carpet, or any flooring, is a significant investment in your home. A soft surface floor covering adds elegance to your home and comes with many benefits.

The last thing you want is to have to replace it prematurely.

That said, protect your investment with regular professional deep cleanings. It should be done every 12 to 18 months, as the warranty specifies.

Vacuuming alone isn’t enough

We encourage vacuuming several times a week. It only picks up the surface dirt, however.

Pollutants, particles, and other “yucky” substances get trapped in fibers. The good news, as the staff at our carpet store explains, is that rug fibers act as an air filter by removing them from the breathing zone. That’s great for allergy sufferers.

If you don’t have them cleaned, your home will have an unpleasant odor, and indoor air quality will be impeded.

Worse yet, the rug will become too full of trapped particles. As a result, it will release bacteria back into the air.

Cleaning saves from costly premature replacements

Cleaning doubles the lifespan of rugs. Sand and dirt are sharp and can fray the fibers and backing of your carpet.

If stains set, your home will have an unpleasant odor, and the floor covering will look dull and matted, even when cleaned.

Check your warranty

Many warranties include requirements to clean regularly and professionally. Please don’t make the mistake of thinking your new flooring doesn’t need it.

Your carpet should be cleaned regularly. And when the warranty schedule isn’t followed precisely, you can void your warranty protections.
