How often should I have my carpets cleaned?
The real answer is before the soiling becomes visible to help prevent permanent damage. New carpet warranties require cleaning every 12 to 18 months to keep valid. The best approach is regular maintenance, where high use areas and traffic lanes are cleaned frequently (every 3 to 6 months) and the lesser-used carpets (bedrooms, sitting rooms etc.) are cleaned less often. Your Carpets will last years longer and your home will be healthier.
Will cleaning my carpets regularly cause them to wear out faster?
NO. In fact a dirty carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. Dirt is an abrasive, just like sandpaper. Every time you step on the carpet you grind dirt into your fibres cutting them like a knife. Regular vacuuming is important but it can’t remove any tacky or embedded dirt. The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned, the more damage you do to your carpet, and the faster it will wear out.
IF carpets filter pollution from my indoor air, why does my allergist say I should remove them?
One of the approaches that allergists use in allergy treatment is allergen avoidance in the belief that the removal of all possible places where allergens are held will reduce allergic symptoms. This is a misconception. Although allergen (dust, pollen, mould spores, etc.) may be present in carpet, carpet is not a source of airborne allergens that produces allergic symptoms. Removing carpet will not reduce the number of airborne allergens that produce allergic reactions; in fact, removal of carpet may actually increase the amount of airborne allergen, because other surfaces do not offer the capability of holding allergens the way carpets do. Removing allergenic materials from a carpet is as easy as regular vacuuming and routine cleaning.
