How Often Should Your Carpets Be Professionally Cleaned?
It is recommended to have your carpets professionally cleaned once a year. For high traffic areas, large families, young children and inside pets we would recommend every 6- 12 months. However for maintaining healthy living areas we would generally recommend every 12 months.
It can be hard to judge the health of your carpets. As essential parts of their home or work space, people tend to take carpets for granted somewhat.
After all, they’re things to walk on, right? As long as there’s no obvious damage or staining, people assume their carpets are fine. A little vacuuming now and then, and Bob’s your uncle, right? Wrong.
Precisely because people walk all over them, carpets take a lot of punishment. Harmful substances can thrive if carpets are left untreated for too long. As experts in carpet cleaning Gold Coast people trust, we know that regular attention is vital.
Carpets are actually quite complicated things. People love them for a lot of reasons, which other floor coverings just can’t compete with. They look great, feel right underfoot, and can last as long as harder, noisier surfaces. Carpet technology has been around an awful lot longer than laminate sections, or even block flooring, for instance.
Modern carpet materials and manufacturing can cater for a huge range of uses as well as interior designs. Computerised stitching and compound technology mean carpets really can last a lifetime.
However, their fibres collect a lot of unseen substances. These won’t be visible on the surface, but they are there nonetheless. Gravity and friction will have their way.
Of course, daily vacuuming or carpet sweeping will help keep your carpet looking ship shape. But it’s the material which gathers at the foot of the carpet fibres that can cause problems. These won’t be visible, but can actually have some quite serious consequences.
With our years of carpet cleaning Gold Coast home and business owners rely on, we are aware of these problems. Asthma can be caused by dust accumulated in carpet fibres. Salmonella, campylobacter, and norovirus can all find a home in uncleaned carpets. Also, athlete’s foot and other moulds breed if given a chance.
For the under fives, Kawasaki syndrome can be quite distressing. This is a lymphatic disease similar to mumps, which causes a rash and fever. The causes of this aren’t absolutely clear, but dirty carpets are thought to contribute to its likelihood.
The best way to look after your carpet is to have it professionally cleaned every six months.
