As we’ve mentioned several times, professional steam cleaning for your carpets is an absolute necessity, not just because it’s a good idea. But because your warranty for your carpet probably requires it.
But how often do you need to clean your carpets?
If your a business owner or maintenance manager for an office building or a commercial building, then we have a different set of articles for you to read.
But if you’re a homeowner, this is exactly what you need to know.
So generally, the time frame we give for cleaning carpets is once every two years. However, a few common factors will increase that to once every year. If you have a lot of traffic in your house (many family members, maybe) or even simply multiple pets, that’d be a good reason to consider more frequent cleanings. A house with respiratory sensitive residents or people highly affected by allergies certainly needs yearly cleaning.
Allergies and pathogens are the main things we’re fighting, in fact, when it comes to carpet cleaning. They can cause the air in your house to be 10x more polluted than outside, and can be a culture for mold.
Material is highly susceptible to indoor mold growth if it is 1) made of organic material 2) has been damp or wet 3) at moderate temperature 4) in a stagnant air environment 5) in any of these conditions for several days
Your probably thinking, mold cannot technically grow on carpet because carpet is made of plastic yarns and synthetic latex. However, average household soil is about 40 percent organic (12 percent cellulose, 12 percent protein, 10 percent oils, 6 perfect food stuffs); therefore, mold can grow on the soil in carpet given the right conditions listed above.
