Perfect Time To Clean

Anytime is the perfect time to clean !

Have your carpets been professionally cleaned in the last 12 to 18 months? Carpets should be cleaned on a schedule and not simply when they look dirty or when relatives are about to drop in for a visit. The frequency of cleaning depends on a number of factors – Commercial or residential? How much use does it get? One person alone in a big house will not produce the load of soil that a family of active children will. Are there smokers in the house? Smoke gets trapped in the carpet fibers and can be a source of odors. Does anyone in the family have allergies? This calls for more frequent cleaning. The newest studies show that carpet floors are better for allergy sufferers than hard surface floors. The reason? On a hard surface floor allergens such as dust mites and their droppings, pollens, mold spores etc. are easily stirred up every time someone passes by or something stirs the air. A carpet traps these allergens and other pollutants as well. However if the carpet is not cleaned on a regular basis the filtering capacity of the carpet gets over-loaded.

With proper maintenance, regular vacuuming, entry mats to catch dirt that would be tracked into the carpet, etc. an average residential carpet would need to be cleaned every 12 months. Sooner for smokers, allergy sufferers or carpets that get heavy use. This time can be extended up to 18 months for carpets that get limited use.
