Carpets, much like furniture and drapery, need to be cleaned regularly. Keeping to a regular schedule will help maintain your carpets and ensure that they remain as beautiful as the day they were first installed. If you happen to wait until they start to look dirty, that is the worst-case scenario. All of the dirt and soil from outside that you track inside the house will seep into your carpet. This wears it down and makes your carpet wear out faster than it should.
If you don’t clean your carpets correctly, then it can end up doing more harm than good. This usually means that the cleanings are inadequate, having been done with portable machines that aren’t worth the expense behind them. These machines are more straightforward for homeowners to rent because they are affordable, but in this case, you will get what you pay for; all it does it moisten your carpet. The effects of this moisture can be catastrophic. The carpets will shrink or begin to lose their color. When they are wet and unable to dry, they will also start to grow mold. Truck-mounted equipment used by carpet cleaning professionals produces far better results. With powerful vacuums, this equipment will ensure that your carpets are completely dried out.
When it comes to cleaning the carpets in your home, some areas need to be cleaned more often than others. The family rooms, the stairs leading up and down – either to the next floor or down to the basement – and in the hallways – all of these rooms should be cleaned every six months. After a large party with many guests, you should have your carpets cleaned. In the other places that see much less foot traffic, such as the bedrooms, you can get away with cleaning that carpet once a year.
Dealing with Commercial Carpets
Cleaning commercial carpets are similar to cleaning residential carpets, but it is also much more intensive. Ultimately, it comes down to the type of business being run, the type of carpet in question, which color it is, and how heavy the foot traffic is. You should call upon a professional carpet cleaning company to analyze the condition of your carpets so they know how to clean it and what they should clean. After that, a timeline for the project, and an estimated cost can be determined.
