Carpet cleaning Daphne, AL

Your carpets should be cleaned on a schedule and not simply when they look dirty or when relatives are about to drop in for a visit. Your carpets are one of the biggest investments in your house. It is important that they last a long time. In this article we’ll take a look at some key factors to help your decide which is right for your home.

The frequency of cleaning depends on a number of factors:

  • How many people live in the house?
  • How much use does it get?
  • Are there smokers in the house?
  • Does anyone in the family have allergies?

How much use does it get? One person alone in a big house will not produce the load of soil that a family of active children will. Are there smokers in the house? Smoke gets trapped in the carpet fibers and can be a source of odors. Does anyone in the family have allergies? This calls for more frequent cleaning.

The newest studies show that carpet floors are better for allergy sufferers than hard surface floors. The reason? On a hard surface, floor allergens such as dust mites and their droppings, pollens and mold spores are easily stirred up every time someone passes by or something stirs the air. A carpet traps these allergens and other pollutants as well. However, if the carpet is not cleaned on a regular basis the filtering capacity of the carpet gets over-loaded.

When is the best time of year to clean those carpets? Late fall is optimal. Any pollutants, abrasive soil and oil needs to be removed before winter when most homes get more tightly shut up.
