When Should You Hire Carpet Cleaners?

There are many reasons why your carpet may need a good cleaning. Maybe you can’t even remember the last time you got them cleaned. Or maybe they’re looking dirty and grungy. Or perhaps you’ve been noticing your allergies kicking up a lot more lately. Whatever the case, it may be time to hire carpet cleaners in Michigan to start off fresh.

Here are some signs that you are due for a professional cleaning.

You may need a cleaning if…

It’s been a year since your carpet was cleaned

Even when being careful about spills and being vigilant about not wearing shoes in the house, your carpets will still collect plenty of dirt and dust, which all should be removed on a regular basis. This should be done by a professional who has the equipment to extract ground-in dirt and sanitize the carpet – something regular vacuuming can’t do.

A good rule of thumb is to have your carpets cleaned once a year. This is especially important if you have pets or small children, or someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma. Regular cleanings also extend the lifespan of your carpet, making daily maintenance easier and improving your home’s overall appearance.

You have allergies

When you notice that your allergies have gotten worse, call in the professional carpet cleaners. Carpets are the biggest filter in your home, trapping dust, dirt, pet dander, and other allergens deep down – even when you vacuum frequently. Any movement, even just walking across the carpet, can disturb those allergens and disperse them into the air where they will circulate for many hours before settling down again. Meanwhile, you’re breathing in those particles, which is never good for your lungs.

Your carpet is looking dirty and dull

Because you look at and walk across your carpet every single day, you likely don’t realize just how dirty it’s getting. But guests do. While you may not think your carpet looks that bad, you can try a simple furniture test to see how dull it really is. Try moving a piece of furniture that hasn’t been moved for a long time and check out the carpet underneath. If it looks lighter, cleaner and fluffier compared with the surrounding carpet, it’s time for a professional cleaning which will serve to extract all the dirt from your carpet and lift it up again so it looks fresher and newer.

Your carpet has stains

Some stains, such as pet and ink stains, can’t be removed with soap and water or fancy cleaners you find at the store. They need professional attention. Not only are you improving your carpet’s appearance, you’re protecting it from future damage when you professionally remove those tough spots and stains.
