How Often Should You Have Your Carpet Cleaned? Victoria, BC


After knowing that Victoria Carpet Care is probably the best carpet cleaning company close to you in Victoria BC, the next thing is answering the above question. It is the kind of use that your carpet has to withstand that should guide your frequency of cleaning it. Usually, you will need to vacuum your carpet to keep it clean. However, professional cleaners like Victoria Carpet Care go deeper and of course this cannot be done every other day.

For instance, when you live alone in an environment that there is nothing out of the ordinary that makes your carpet dirty, once a year cleaning is sufficient to keep your carpet clean.

On the other hand, if you have children who spill everything on the carpet and pets that may leave their hairs and even more dirt behind, you may need to schedule professional cleaning twice or more a year. Humid and overly dusty environments also should influence your frequency of professionally cleaning the carpet. In the wet rainy weather  we get on Vancouver Island it is easy to track mud into the home which may mean more frequent cleanings. Even if the carpet is not used as intensively, you may still need to have it professionally cleaned at least once a year because mites might hide in it and ruin your otherwise healthy living environment.

IICRC - Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification

The IICRC is a certification and standard-setting non-profit organization for the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries.  The IICRC is recognized internationally as a knowledgeable industry voice and resource.

According to the IICRC :  "Frequently used carpet should be professionally cleaned by a qualified technician at least once a year - perhaps a little longer interval for infrequently used carpet and even sooner for carpet in homes occupied by respiratory sensitive or allergic persons or in homes with indoor pets."

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average person spends 90 percent or more of their time indoors, where levels of pollutants may be two to five times (and occasionally more than 100 times) higher than outdoor levels.

This makes it extremely important to perform regular maintenance inside your home or business. In addition to vacuuming, cleaning and checking for water damage on a regular basis, using a certified Victoria Carpet Care technician for cleaning will help extend the life of your flooring and upholstery and ensure that your home or business is healthful for those who live and work there.
