Lets face it, your carpet endures a lot of abuse. Heavy traffic from half wiped muddy shoes, traffic from your pets, and the occasional traffic that results in someone spilling their drink all over the carpet. You’ve tried everything from vacuuming, carpet spot and stain removal products, even using your own home steam carpet cleaner. But it seems like your carpet is determined to hold on to that grime. It’s going to take a miracle to get your carpet looking new again!

Don’t wait until it is almost impossible to get your carpet back into shape. To maintain one of the biggest investments in your home you should schedule a professional carpet cleaner to clean your carpets regularly. The goal is to have your carpet cleaned before obvious signs of aging and wear are evident. If you ignore the problem, dirt can actually shorten the lifespan of your carpet.

How Does Dirt Ruin Carpet?

When your kids, the dog and your spouse forget to wipe their feet, they are introducing your carpet to more dirt and soil than normal. This speeds up the time in between professionally carpet cleanings, because dirt eventually becomes attached to your carpet fibers. As a result, your carpet begins to wear prematurely. 

How Often Should You Have Your Carpet Professionally Cleaned?

The average person without a lot of traffic and less dirt can get away with getting their carpet cleaned only once a year. If you live alone, you can go up to 2 years without a professional cleaning. Of course regular vacuuming is very important in between professional cleanings.

The more people you have in your home the more often you will need to have your carpet cleaned. If you have children, you should get your carpet professionally cleaned every 6 to 9 months. Do not forget to vacuum the most trafficked areas twice a week and the rest of the house once a week.

If you have children and pets, your timetable is moved up to around 3 to 6 months between carpet cleaning. That is with the addition of vacuuming 2 to 4 times every week. If you have a large family that includes many adults, children and multiple pets, vacuuming is a daily chore and you should call a carpet cleaning service that has the equipment to provide professional results. You might want to have the job done every 2 to 3 months.

Vacuuming of course is very important, but can never take the place of a deep professional carpet cleaning. And replacing your carpet can be very expensive. If you want to help extend the life of your carpet, hire a professional carpet cleaning company.  If you are looking for carpet cleaning company that uses professional equipment and can handle tough jobs in the Rochester area, call Carpet Cleaning Rochester NY.
