Like a sponge, the fibers of your carpet absorb various allergens and bacteria, making regular vacuuming essential. Most homes should do this twice weekly, using a vacuum cleaner fitted with a HEPA filter. Homes with household members who suffer from allergies or asthma, along with high-traffic areas, should be vacuumed more frequently.
Equally essential is stopping dirt, or more importantly, bacteria in its tracks by strategically placing mats inside and out all doors and adopting a “shoes-off at the door” policy. Doing these things can preserve the carpet’s beauty, promote its longevity, and improve indoor air quality (IAQ). However, these tasks should be in addition to, rather than a substitute for routinely hiring a professional carpet cleaning company.
The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) recommends having your carpeted floors professionally deep cleaned every 12 to 18 months at a minimum. As mentioned, your family’s lifestyle and health should be considered, and carpet cleaning frequency increased as applicable. You may also want to consider more frequent cleanings if you have pets, such as dogs and cats, particularly since their fur can become embedded into the fibers.
How to Prepare for Cleaning?
The single, most important thing you can do before the carpet cleaning company arrives at your home is to thoroughly vacuum your carpeted floors, using the crevice tool to get along the edges. Doing this will help loosen dirt trapped within the fibers and, according to the CRI, significantly improve the cleaning process.
Additional things to consider doing before and during your service appointment include:
- Relocating furniture from the carpeted area
- Having optional stain protection applied after cleaning
- Opening a window, if weather conditions allow, to ventilate the area
- Considering additional services to promote a healthy, safe environment, such as air duct cleaning, carpet cleaning, disinfectant cleaning, or dryer vent cleaning
