Cleaning your carpets can have many benefits that you might not think about. While the most obvious reason to clean your carpets is to make them look better, there are in fact, many different ways cleaning your carpets can help improve your living area or business. Not only do dirty carpets look unappealing to you and your guests, but they also carry bacteria, allergens, dirt, and more. Cleaning your carpets can extend your carpets’ lifespan, make a happier healthier home, and improve air quality. But how often do you need to clean your carpets? Well, the answer can vary for a variety of factors. We will cover them below, but if you live in the Greater Boston area and want the guesswork removed, give us a call for a free estimate on carpet cleaning in your area.
How often you clean your carpets will depend on a variety of factors. Wearing shoes on your carpets for instance can quickly lead to messes. More occupants will also increase the foot traffic on your carpets which can lead to additional problems. Generally speaking, you will want to vacuum your carpets weekly. However, a quick vacuum can only really handle the top layer of dirt and dust. While it is great at cleaning the smaller messes a professional carpet cleaning team is best suited for the larger cleaning projects.
The average homeowner might consider getting professional carpet cleaning done a few times every year. For a home with fewer occupants, that is vacuum regularly, you can probably get by with 1-2 professional steam cleans each year. But if you live in a home with many occupants or you are not always on top of your regular cleaning for your property, you might want to consider getting a quarterly carpet cleaning. Not only will this prevent the build-up of dirt and dander, but it can also improve the lifespan of your carpets for years to come. Often, homeowners will schedule carpet steam cleaning before large events like Thanksgiving or Christmas so that their carpets are at their cleanest before guests arrive.
Apartment buildings, condominium complexes, office buildings, and other businesses will likely need to clean their carpets more frequently. For instance, many hotels and apartment buildings will have hallway carpets cleaned daily or every other day to handle the constant foot traffic. Because guests are walking with their shoes on, whatever they stepped in outside is now inside. Regular cleanings can handle small stains, odors, and other issues. But like with homes, you are likely going to need larger solutions at a more frequent rate.
Businesses like hotels, restaurants, office buildings, and residential properties should consider hiring steam cleaning services once per month. Depending on the type of business you own or manage and the number of people entering and leaving every day you may need to increase or decrease that frequency.
