How often should you deep clean your carpet?

So it’s a new year and we are all planning project for 2021. One project that should be on everyones list should be deep cleaning carpets and rugs throughout the home. We recommend deep cleaning your carpets at least once every year. There are some situations where you should be deep cleaning your carpets more often.

Cigarette smokers in your home?

It’s very important to deep clean your carpets every three months in homes with heavy smokers. Every six months in homes with moderate to light smokers. Tobacco smoke contains numerous types of gasses and particulate matter, including some that have been known to cause cancer. These harmful gasses can be absorbed into dust in a room, ending up in your carpet, area rugs, upholstery and other soft surfaces. Getting us to deep clean your carpets will remove these toxins.

Have children at home?

If you have small children in your home, we recommend deep cleaning your carpets and rugs every six months. Yes, children tend to cause more spills and accidents but our main concern is the exposure your kids may have to what’s lurking in your carpets. Carpet is soft and warm and a great place for the little ones to play, or nap, or picnic, or build forts. Unfortunately, children are more likely to be exposed to pollution in carpets and rugs because they spend so much time playing on it and because they are likely to place their hands in their mouths.

What about pets in your home?

If you have furry family members living indoors, we recommend deep cleaning your carpet at least every six months. Carpet and area rugs do a fantastic job of trapping pet dander deep within the fibers. While this is great for air quality initially, simply walking on or even vacuuming can make it airborne again. Pet dander is tiny flecks of skin shed by animal with fur or feathers. Because of their microscopic size, it’s easy for pet dander particles to settle deep within your carpet. Yuck! Want to hear something even yuckier? Dried saliva, urine or dust from dried feces can also flake off your pet in a similar manner and become trapped deep within the fibers.

While regular vacuuming can help, it’s not enough on its own, because it doesn’t remove all the tiny particles hiding deep beneath the surface. Deep cleaning is the only way to truly and thoroughly wash your carpet and area rugs. Yes, deep cleaning is important from a cleanliness perspective, but it’s doubly important for those with pet allergies. Even if you aren’t allergic to pet dander, there’s good a chance that many of your guests may have a pet allergy.
