Frequency of Cleaning Carpets
To protect your investment and your health, it is recommended by the Australian Carpet Cleaning Institute that carpets need to be professionally cleaned each year right from the beginning. You wouldn’t run your car for five years without regular servicing and expect it to perform like new. Your carpets are the same, you must service them regularly from day one for optimum performance. When cleaned and maintained correctly carpet life is significantly extended. So don’t be afraid to have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly for example: at least every 12 months for a family of two.
For larger families cleaning every six months is a better option. Remember, even when carpets don’t appear to be particularly dirty, it’s the unseen soils, bacteria and allergens that cause the real damage both to your carpets and to your personal health.
