Are you taking care of your carpet? If your home has carpeting, it’s important to have it professionally cleaned on a regular basis to make sure it lasts for years to come. But how do you know how often to clean your carpet?
Our professional carpet cleaners have a few criteria to keep in mind when you’re thinking about whether it’s time to hire a cleaning service for your home’s carpet. Here’s what you need to know.
Carpet Cleaning Considerations
While there’s no one-size-fits-all rule for how often you should clean or restore your carpet, there are a few factors to consider while making your decision.
- Heavy foot traffic: In high-traffic areas of the house, carpets tend to get dirtier, faster. Even banning shoes in the house can only go so far: dirt, food, and beverages have a way of ending up where we least want them, so spills and carpet stains are to be expected. It’s important to have carpets in these areas cleaned more frequently, before stains have a chance to really set.
- Pets: Not only can pets track mud and dirt throughout your house, but their fur and dander will end up on the carpet no matter how careful you are. This can be especially problematic for people with allergies, whether they live in the house or are a guest. Hiring our professional carpet cleaners can reduce the amount of pet dander in your home and make it easier for those with allergies to breathe.
- Children: Let’s face it… kids are messy! If you have kids, you’ll know that they manage to get dirt, food, and art supplies pretty much everywhere. People with young children might find that they need to hire professional carpet cleaners on a more regular basis.
- Events: If you frequently host events in your home, such as parties or book club meetings, you might want to have your carpets and area rugs cleaned more often.
Benefits of Professional Carpet Cleaning
There are many reasons to have your carpet professionally cleaned. For one, carpet cleaning tools are expensive and time-consuming to use. While you might save a few bucks by taking the DIY route, you’ll spend far more than that in time and effort.
In addition, professional carpet cleaners have access to tools and cleaning solutions that will clean your carpet much more effectively than you could do on your own. Our team of Lansing carpet cleaners can remove old stains, lift dirt, and deodorize, all while using a process that is gentle and safe for the long-term life of your carpet.
We are especially effective at removing unsightly pet odors and stains that can bring down the overall value of your home. After our service, we offer an optional protective coating in order to block future stains and promote the longevity of your carpet.
Our Carpet Cleaning Process
At Camelot, we use a hot water extraction method for carpet cleaning. This will achieve a much deeper clean than you could on your own.
Our state-of-the-art cleaning equipment is able to heat water past the boiling point and then force it out and into the carpet through pressurization. The hot water breaks down dirt and other particles in the fibers of your carpet. We then extract the water, taking the dirt with it.
