There are many tasks to keep up with around the house, which is why carpet cleaning often gets pushed to the back burner for many people. However, putting off professional carpet cleaning could be impacting your health in ways you might not expect.

Here’s why carpet cleaning should be high on your priority list, and how often you should schedule this service.


The Impact Of Routine Carpet Cleaning

The carpet in our homes endures heavy traffic each day. As we go about our busy lives, our carpets trap dirt, allergens, bacteria, and airborne particles like a giant filter. This actually helps protect our family and pets, until these “filters” become too full.

Once our carpets become full of harmful contaminants, they actually release allergens and bacteria back into the area we breathe. This creates a danger zone for asthma and a higher susceptibility to a variety of illness.

This is especially concerning when you consider how often we walk and lay on our carpets every day.

If there are pets indoors, these risks increase significantly. Dander, hair, bacteria, allergens, and odors easily transfer from animals to carpet fibers. If pets urinate on the carpet, the presence of bacteria and odor skyrockets and can only be removed with professional pet urine removal treatment.


The Safe Time Frame For Professional Carpet Cleaning

To keep allergens, bacteria, and other health risks at bay, your carpets should be professionally cleaned at least every 6 months. Carpets should be cleaned more frequently—at least every 3 to 4 months—if there are pets in the home.

It’s also wise to schedule your professional upholstery cleaning service at the same time as your carpet cleaning.
