Once you have a carpet from Floor Coverings International® of Middletown installed, professional cleaning is a necessity for ensuring it lasts and looks great. Every family runs their home a little differently, and this can vary how often you should have a carpeted floor professionally cleaned. While a good rule of thumb is once a year, there are some cases where this isn’t quite right. Read on to learn how often you should be calling in the professionals to clean your carpet to maximize your carpet’s life span.
Less Than a Year
Do you have young children? Is your carpet in a room where they spend a lot of time? Little ones can wear out carpet a lot faster than adults. Whether they’re spilling juice from a sippy cup or crawling around on the floor after playing outside, kids tend to do some damage to flooring. It’s a good idea to have your carpet cleaned every nine months or so while children are young. The same goes for pets. Dirty paws and unfortunate accidents can be seriously damaging to carpets. We recommend a deep cleaning every six to nine months to ensure you stay on top of potential damage.
As we mentioned, a good rule of thumb is to have your carpet professionally cleaned once a year. This applies to a household that has older children, or faces less wear and tear throughout the year. You should also check on your carpet’s warranty information, as these often require professional cleaning once a year. If you have a warranty and you want it to remain valid, be sure to set up your yearly cleaning!
More Than a Year
If you do not have a warranty and you are diligent about keeping your carpet clean, you can extend the time between professional cleaning without harm. However, annual cleaning is still highly recommended for most households. When you take care of your carpet, you will get more out of your investment.
