Carpets hold a lot of germs. With countless amounts of foot traffic and dirty shoes, they can end up being dirtier than even your toilet seat! Here are some reasons that you should be cleaning your carpets on a regular basis:
Lack of Carpet Cleaning Affects Air Quality
Indecent carpet maintenance can cause your air quality to be low inside of your home. If your carpet hasn’t been routinely cleaned, it can have an indoor air quality rating that’s up to ten times worse than outdoor air quality. With allergens and smog outside, dirty carpets pose a notable health concern. Making sure your carpets are clean is really crucial for those who have allergies. Getting rid of dust and another buildup is critical in limiting irritation. Pets shed their fur, hair, and dander, and if they are going in and out of the house, they carry in dirt and allergens from outside as well. Pollen and dust from the outdoors are major allergens. If you or anyone else living in your home have seasonal allergies, it is really important to keep your carpets clean. This can save you a lot of tissues and nose-blowing in the long run!
If You Have Pets
If you have pets, you should be cleaning your carpets every 4-6 weeks. If you do any steam cleanings, it’s good to vacuum every day in between those, especially if your pet sheds a lot. It may seem like a lot of work but it’s essential. Vacuuming daily will keep your entire home clean from any dirt and germs from your pets that gets trapped in carpet fibers. Try baking soda on any areas of the rug or carpet that had pet stains and other accidents. This can remove the smell and have it looking cleaner than before.
Spot Clean Your Carpets
Carpets are going to get dirty whether you like it or not. From spills to dirt, anything can get on it and create a stain. That’s why it’s important to tend to messes quickly and spot clean anything you find on the carpet. Some rooms may not be used as much, so cleaning those carpets isn’t a priority. In your living room or bedroom, though, those carpets may need more spot cleaning and attention in general. Make sure to take care of your carpets so that you can get a good amount of use from them!
