To Clean or Not To Clean?

Shoud I Replace My Carpet Or Get It Professionally Cleaned?

 

To Clean Or Not To Clean


To clean or not to clean? Should I spend the money and replace my carpet? The biggest question we get all the time is “How often should I clean my carpet?” The answer? When carpet cleaning is in question, it depends on several things and there are different ways to answer this question.


Carpet cleaning is complicated. For some people, if it looks dirty, it needs to be cleaned. But the outward appearance of a carpet isn’t always the best way to determine whether carpet cleaning is necessary or not. People with dark carpet find the darker color can hide a great deal! Including how dirty a carpet really is.

FACTORS THAT ARE IMPORTANT


That’s why carpet manufacturers recommend carpet should be cleaned at least every 12 months, but this can be inaccurate due to many factors such as:
How much traffic does your carpet see in a normal day?
Are there children or pets in the home?
Does anyone smoke in your home?
Let’s break down the different levels of carpet cleaning requirements to give you a better idea of how often your carpeting should be cleaned.
