A Guide to Knowing When Your Carpets Need Professional Cleaning

Professional carpet cleaning is not something you need to do every week or even month. Instead, the frequency should be determined by the type of carpets and the level of usage. If you have guests often, then professional cleanings should be done more frequently than if you don’t have guests very often. There are a number of different signs that indicate when it’s time for a professional carpet cleaning service. But before you contact one, there are a few things that you can do to prevent your carpets from getting too dirty in the first place and reduce the need for a professional cleaner in the future. Carpets provide warmth, style and an aesthetic appeal to any room in your home. However, they can also pose several challenges if they aren’t cared for properly. When left unclean — whether as a result of pet hair, spills or other types of dirt stains — carpets can also be detrimental to your health and may lead to several secondary problems (such as pollen release or dust mites).

 

How to Know When Your Carpets Need Professional Cleaning

If you’re not sure if your carpets need professional cleaning, you can start by assessing how frequently you notice dirt and other foot traffic pollutants embedded into the fibers of your carpets. If you notice that there is a significant build-up of dirt and other pollutants after only a few weeks, then it is likely that your carpets are harboring a good deal of dirt and pollutants, and they will likely need professional cleaning after a few months. You can also tell when it’s time to bring in a professional carpet cleaning service if your carpets are shifting in color. This can be a sign that they are getting old and that they need to be thoroughly cleaned. The same can be said if your carpets begin to discolor after a spill has been cleaned up. The cleaning solution used to remove a spill may have left a residual mark on the carpet fibers that can’t be removed by a typical home carpet cleaner.

 

Frequent Foot Traffic

If you have a high level of foot traffic in the rooms with the carpets in your home, then you will want to pay closer attention to when you should schedule a professional cleaning. You may find that your carpets are needing to be cleaned more frequently as a result of how much foot traffic they are getting. This is especially true if you have children or pets that are prone to tracking in dirt from outside or bringing in dirt from the rest of the house. Carpets that are frequently walked on are more likely to show the build-up of dirt on the fibers more quickly than carpets that are rarely walked on. This is because carpets that are walked on regularly have a more difficult time drying out because they are being walked on and are not given time to dry out. This can result in the build-up of moisture in the fibers of the carpet that can lead to mildew and a musty smell.

 

Stains

If you have a stain on your carpet that doesn’t come out after a few cleanings with a home-based carpet cleaner, then it’s time to call a professional carpet cleaning service. Even if the stain doesn’t look unsightly, the fact that it won’t come out on its own indicates that it is deeply embedded in the carpet fibers and will likely only get worse if you don’t have a professional cleaner come in and remove it. If you have a stain on your carpet, there are a few things that you can do to help remove it. You can use a carpet stain remover to help loosen it, you can use a carpet shampooer to help wash it away or you can even try using a steam cleaner to help loosen up the stain. If none of these methods work, you will want to call and schedule a professional carpet cleaning service.

 

Carpet Discoloration

If you notice that the color of your carpets has changed and looks lighter than it did when they were new, then they are likely harboring a good deal of dirt, dust and other pollutants, and they will likely need professional cleaning. In addition to lightening the color of the carpet, this can also be a sign that the carpets are old and that they are not very resilient. If you have some very old carpets in your home, you may notice that they are discolored. However, this discoloration is typically not a sign that they need to be cleaned. In fact, there is typically no need to clean very old or antique carpets.

 

Conclusion

Carpets provide warmth, style and an aesthetic appeal to any room in your home. However, they can also pose challenges if they’re not cared for properly. When left unclean — whether as a result of pet hair, spills or other types of dirt stains — carpets can also be detrimental to your health. If you notice that your carpets need professional cleaning, you can start by assessing how frequently you notice dirt and other foot traffic pollutants embedded into the fibers of your carpets. If you notice a significant build-up of dirt and other pollutants after only a few weeks, then it’s likely that your carpets are harboring a good deal of dirt and pollutants, and they will likely need professional cleaning after a few months.
