Carpet Cleaning

In order to keep your carpets looking their best, it is important to frequently vacuum to remove dirt, dust and any debris that has gotten stuck in the fibers of your carpet. In addition to vacuuming, it is important to clean your carpet regularly to take care of your carpet’s deep cleaning needs. Cleaning systems target and clean the dirtiness caused by cooking, air pollution and dirt that you and your guests have tracked into your space. These oils and debris can drastically affect your carpet’s color over time, and can even lead to wear marks in your carpet’s most walked areas. We recommend having walk-off mats placed at your main entryways to reduce the amount of dirt tracked onto your carpet and to get your carpets steam cleaned every 18 months or so, depending on how much foot traffic your carpets get.

Tips For Keeping Your Carpet Clean

There are a few simple things that you can do to make sure that your carpets stay clean and fresh and don’t develop serious signs of wear prematurely. The first step that you should take is to make sure that you have mats at all of your main entryways to reduce dirt and mud. You should also vacuum your carpets once a week, depending on how much foot traffic the area gets. Make sure that you move your heavy furniture a few times a year to make sure that you don’t develop divots and marks in your carpet. Even if you just move your furniture an inch or two that will make a big difference over your carpet’s lifespan.

When To Redo Your Carpets

There are a few signs that it might be time to replace your carpets. If you are noticing serious wear in the main walking paths, like discoloration or even holes developing in your carpeting, it is time to think about new flooring. Carpeting is fairly reasonably priced, so if you feel like you want to change it up, you can always try a new color or pattern.
