“How often should I have my carpets cleaned?” This is a very popular question, as you change your furnace filter 3 to 4 times a year to have cleaner air quality in your home.  What about having clean carpets to promote  longevity and a healthier home environment? To best figure out when to clean your carpets and how frequently, is is best to consider these questions.

How often is the carpet vacuumed? Do you have pets and do they shed a lot of hair frequently or what about a new puppy that is prone to having accidents on the carpets? Do you wear your shoes in your home or  take them off upon entering your house?  What about drinking or eating food over carpeted surfaces and potential spills or accidents from that? Do you or anyone else in your home suffer from allergies? What about the number of people that live in your home?   If you have newer carpet what about having regular maintenance cleanings  to keep your warranty intact?

It makes sense to take care of the carpets to make them last as long as possible.  As you can see there are quite a lot of variables from home to home.  Soil can come from your shoes, furnace filter and from what is in the air.  If you live in a dusty environment you might need to get your carpets cleaned more frequently.  A good general rule for how often to clean your carpets is at least once per calendar year.   Please call Ace Chem-Dry and we can assist you with any questions that you may have.
