A question we get asked ALL the time is "How often should I clean my carpet?" Lucky for you guys, today I am going to discuss what the best answer is to that question! First of all, the short answer is... It depends! What does that mean? Well, it depends on where you live, how many people live in your house, how many pets you have, how often you have guests, whether or not everyone takes their shoes off, if you eat on your carpet, how often you vacuum, and what kind of carpet you have - and more! The answers to those questions determine how often you should clean your carpets because all of those factors contribute to adding more dirt and soiling to your carpet. The number of people in the home greatly increases the amount of soiling because each person tracks in dirt and sheds millions of skin cells per day! The same goes for having guests over, and especially when they do not remove their shoes. Besides people, pets are one of the largest contributors to adding soiling to your carpets. They do not wipe their feet when they come in from the muddy outdoors, they drool, they shed, they rub their oily hair all over the carpet, and can sometimes have accidents on the carpets. In summary, the more people or pets you have in your home, the more often you need to vacuum and have your carpets professionally cleaned. Now that we discussed the cause of the soiling, we can discuss how to remove it and how often. A common misconception about carpet cleaning is that it makes your carpet resoil faster, or causes it to wear out faster. [...]
Carpet cleaning companies are a dime a dozen, but they’re not all the same. Choosing the wrong company has left many homeowners disappointed, and in need of having the work redone. Make the right call the first time by finding out these three things about a carpet cleaner before you hire them. 1. Certifications Most professional carpet cleaners are professionally certified, and it’s worth asking if this is the case for all the cleaners your company of choice employs. Look for certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration- the most well known training school for these types of professionals. If the workers are not properly trained, it may show through in their quality of work. Don’t be afraid to move on if the answer to this question is no. 2. Licensure and/or Insurance Different states have different licensure requirements for carpet cleaners. Find out what your state requires, and then ask about whether or not the company you are thinking of hiring has the necessary license. If your state does not require carpet cleaners to hold licenses, insurance can be a great tip off for the legitimacy of a company. Anyone you hire to work in your home should have appropriate insurance to protect themselves as well as their customers. 3. Reviews and Testimonials The best way to know if any company is good is to talk to someone that has worked with them. Reach out to friends, family or coworkers and ask about who they’ve hired to clean their carpets. Ask for their feelings about how the work was conducted, and if they liked the result. Barring that, online reviews can give you some idea of a [...]
Moisture. It’s the worst nemesis of most flooring types and an annoying (and costly) issue for many homeowners. It doesn’t take that much water for mold to start forming, and mold can be dangerous to your home and your health. Carpets can be particularly vulnerable and carpet mold can remain undetected for quite a while. So how can you and your family protect yourselves from mold and water related damage? Here are a few tips for dealing with moisture and keeping it out of your carpets. 1. Clean And Dry Water Damage Immediately When water damage strikes, it’s important to move quickly. Soak up as much of the water as possible with a wet/dry vacuum and absorbent towels. If you don’t have a vacuum that will work, you can often rent them from carpet cleaning companies. Put out fans to dry the affected area as quickly as possible. Large amounts of water damage may require scrubbing with carpet cleaner and bleach to remove mold that may be forming under the carpet. 2. Remove All Furniture from the Room Mold can form on or under your furniture, so be sure to clear the room of furniture and rugs after a flood. Check the condition of your rugs and furniture. Then clean them thoroughly to combat mold and remove any grime that may have been present in the water. Return furniture to the room only after the carpet has had time to dry. 3. Get a Dehumidifier A dehumidifier will help create an arid environment indoors that will allow the carpet to dry more quickly and prevent the formation of mold and mildew. 4. Steam Clean Your Carpet After excessive water damage has taken place, [...]
Welcome back to our two part series on cleaning and maintaining your rugs. If you have not read our first article in this series, 7 Steps to a Clean Rug: Part 1, make sure you check out that page first. Here are the last 3 steps you need to know to properly clean your area rug at home. 5. Remove Excess Water Before you lay your rug out to dry, you should get as much water out of the rug as possible. A rubber window squeegee is a great tool to use for this. Carefully squeeze the water out of your carpet, always pulling with the rug’s nap, never against it. Once you no longer see water being forced out, you are done. 6. Lay Flat to Dry Once all excess water is removed, lay the rug out to dry, rotating once to make sure the front and back both dry fully. Do not replace the carpet until it has dried completely. 7. Gently Brush Out Fibers Once after a rug dries the fibers are left stiff and feeling different than they were before. If the fibers of your rug feel stiff, you can brush them out with a soft brush or vacuum it to loosen them again. Over time, the fibers will loosen (and soften) right up. Once you’ve completed all these steps, return your rug to the appropriate room and enjoy how clean and vibrant it looks and feels again!

Carpet cleaning is important not just for keeping your home feeling fresh and clean, but also for keeping your carpet in the best shape possible for the longest period of time. Improper maintenance of your carpet can actually cause you to need to replace it sooner, so it’s important to stay on top of it. But just how often do you need a professional deep clean? There are a few factors that go into knowing when it’s time to hire someone to clean your carpets. 1. Clean Your Carpets Before They Start Looking Gross Your carpets are dirtier than they appear, and by the time you can see the wear they're already overdue for a clean. 2. Clean Your Carpets as Often as Your Warranty Dictates If you have a warranty on your carpet, make sure to check how often you are required to have your carpet cleaned in order to maintain that warranty. Often, warranties will require you to have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year, but it may change from manufacturer to manufacturer. 3. Clean Your Carpets More Often if You Have and/or Pets If you have children or pets in your home, you’ll need to clean your carpets every 6 to 12 months to keep them well maintained. Between cleanings, be sure that you are vacuuming frequently to deal with the hair and dander that your pets leave behind. If your pets are not yet house trained and have frequent accidents, you’ll need to have your carpets done even more frequently to prevent permanent damage and unpleasant odors. 4. Clean Your Carpets Based on Your Foot Traffic One of the best ways to know how frequently you [...]
