Carpet Cleaning, Victoria BC: How Often Should I Have My Carpets Professionally Steam Cleaned?


Have your carpets professionally 'Steam Cleaned' a minimum of once per year, more often if you have pets or children.

Most people wait until the carpet is visibly soiled before they clean their carpets. This is not wise. What causes the most damage to carpets is the abrasive particles that are stuck to the carpet fibers by oil residues. These oil residues are everywhere and are from the burning of hydrocarbons from motor vehicles factories, power plants and volatilized oils from cooking. They are so small that we usually cannot see them. But they always settle down and land on the largest horizontal surfaces, our carpets! Once the oil is on the carpet, the soil then sticks to the fibers and no vacuum cleaner can then remove it. Also regular cleaning helps prevent matting and crushing of carpet by removing the oils that cause fibers to clump together and compress. When the carpet is so soiled that you can visibly see it then the abrasive soil has been rubbing on the fibers way too long and damage has already occurred.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends that carpet in a residential setting be cleaned a minimum of once per year and every 3 to 6 months if children and pets are present. Their reason for the frequency has more to do with maintaining a healthy indoor environment than appearance but it is still good advice.
