When was the last time your carpets were professionally cleaned? If you are like most Americans, it was likely within the past year. You will probably have to wait at least one year before you get your carpets cleaned again. If there are 2 or less people living in the house, the website Environmental Protection Agency recommends that carpets be cleaned every 6-12months.
These recommendations are based upon indoor air quality. Carpet acts as a filter by filtering out air that circulates through the home’s vent systems. Clean carpets can make all the difference for people with allergies and asthma.
It can be expensive to have your carpets cleaned every three months. After applying coupons and specials, a market analysis of professional carpet cleaning prices revealed that the average cost of a three-room, two-hallway carpet cleaning was $125. The total cost of carpet cleanings for a homeowner who has their carpet cleaned three times per year can quickly add up.
Many families choose to clean their carpets themselves. You can find a variety of carpet cleaning products at grocery stores, depending on where you live. This is another way to clean your carpets. However, homeowners will need to do the hard work, such as moving furniture and lugging the machine around. Do-it-yourself techniques come with inherent risks.
– Carpet that is too saturated. Carpet can be damaged if too much water is used.
– Misapplications of cleaners. Carpet can be permanently discolored or bleached if the wrong cleaning solution is used for certain stains.
