How Often should i go for carpet cleaning?

|After 6 Months?| 12 Months?|
After i finish job for Carpet Cleaning and about to leave. i used to hear one question from Clients!

How often should i clean my carpets?

Though a Carpet may look clean at a surface level,there are lot of dust particles trapped inside the deep weave of carpet fabric. So Most of the people donít have idea that when my carpets gonna be dirty.

These Pictures are showing the dirty water i extracted after carpet cleaning also Some of images showing so many hair after i vacuumed the place.

The best case scenario would be to clean your carpet at least once a year. Even if the carpet gets no traffic whatsoever it is subject to dust dirt and environmental contaminants.
The next interval would be every 6 to 9 months if you have normal to light traffic from pets and children.

If you have even more traffic and more kids, or if youíre a smoker then you want to have your carpet professionally cleaned every 3 to 6 months particularly in living dining rooms hallways and stairs.

If your situation has even more traffic, pets,dust and dirt you will probably want to clean your carpet every 2 to 3 months. Call Ameri-Clean. We can advise you as to the frequency needed for your particular situation.

Why you need carpet steam cleaning
So i used to tell them that it totally depends on number of factors like
1.) If you have pets like dog,cat etc. then you have to be super careful about your carpets because They used to sit on Lounge, Bedroom etc. so what happens is:- Hairs all over the carpeted area which cause so many types of infections from germs and bacteria.

Similarly there are some seasonal allergies in pets which is also the reason your pets are making your carpets infected.

2.) If you have little oneís in the home again you have to be super careful about that because children get infected very easily from carpets because carpets has fibers which collect all the dust and dirt in the house and when children crawl on it they get infection. this is the reason Doctors also recommend that you should regularly clean your carpets if you have kids .

So i try to guide my customers/clients that in this type of situation you should go for steam cleaning after every 3 months otherwise as per industry experts and carpet manufacturer recommend that carpets should be cleaned annually.

8 Steps to follow while carpet steam cleaning
furthermore we use these 8 steps to deep clean the carpets.
1.) First of all we perform a visual inspection of carpet and identify stains then supply an analysis of results.

2.) In vacuuming, the cleaner goes over every a part of the carpet in forward and backwards motion with the vacuum cleaner to increase the collection of loose dirt.

3.) We use best & non-toxic formulated solution to treat stain area.

4.) Here We Spray all the carpeted area with chemical. The chemical we use are not only biodegradable and environmentally friendly but also safe to use around the little oneís and pets.

5.) carpet agitation is the act of loosening soil and other particles that are clinging to it, prior to being cleaned.

6.) The hot water extraction cleaning method uses equipment that sprays heated water, Simultaneously, the water is vacuumed up, along with any dislodged and dissolved dirt.

7.) the final step within the method is carpet grooming. This helps reset the pile and promotes quicker drying times.

8.) Finally Technician will walk Through and inspect the carpeted area to make sure that he himself and you are happy with the results.

Nice summary of the situation mani. Cleaning carpets and for that matter, house cleaning is more than just making surfaces look nice. Dirty, debris and allergens all contribute to an unhealthy environment. That is one reason furnaces have filters and even sometime HEPA-filters. It makes a difference! And of course the more doors and windows are opened and the more foot traffic that goes through the home, the bigger the problem.

Rotate Your Rug
While handmade rugs are generally quite durable, rotating your rug will prevent any one section from wearing out faster than the rest. We recommend that you rotate your rug at least once every 6 months; however, if it is in a high traffic area itís best to rotate it at the end of each season, so four times a year. Besides minimizing wear, rotation of your rug will also ensure that no part of it is overexposed to the sun.

Vacuum Your Rug
Over time, a rug will accumulates dirt and other tiny particles, which when walked upon grate against its natural fibers. To minimize the damage caused by these particles we recommend that you vacuum your rug at least twice a week, and even more often for rugs in high traffic areas. Before vacuuming, gently sweep the rug with a straw broom to help loosen any dirt or dust. Use the suction nozzle of the vacuum rather than the power head, and vacuum in the same direction as the pile. Vacuuming both sides will also prevent moths from settling in; however, avoid the fringes as they can be easily damaged.

A Rug Cleaning Expert - Not a Cleaning Expert
If you take good care of your handmade rug and have it cleaned properly, it can last as a family treasure for generations. But improper cleaning can damage it over the long term and shorten its life. Only a rug cleaning expertónot a cleaning expertócan know the strength of the color and fiber, based on the origin, construction, and foundation of your rug, and determine the proper cleaning technique.

Handmade wool and/or silk area rugs are meant to be walked onóand are durable enough to be cleaned with care. Over time, dust becomes embedded in the fibers of a rug, even when the piece hangs on a wall. Fringes can become soiled and matted, and colors often become dull under an accumulation of dust and dirt.

Clean your rugs about once every five to seven years. If your rug is in a high-traffic area, you may need to clean it more often.

The Cyrus process for cleaning rugs starts with a thorough inspection, noting any damage or stains that may need special attention. Next, they will recommend any repairs, which you can order before the piece is dusted with a powerful but gentle vacuum to loosen and remove particles. The piece is then submerged in fresh, pH-balanced water and a specially-formulated solution, and hand brushed to clean the fibers.

After a final rinse, the rug is aired in a special drying room with a controlled climate for quick, clean drying. As a result, professional cleaning will preserve and enhance the look and value of your rugs, significantly extending their lifespans.

I detest wall to wall carpeting! And would NEVER do this is m y own home. I cannot afford to hire someone to come in and clean them. I DO have area rugs which are truly lovely, and since I find them on Ebay they dont cost much at all.
When I clean a carpetted home, I always see that grayish line along the walls which is dust that simply does not vacuum up.

I hate wall to wall carpet.I have all tile with area rugs myself.Wall to wall carpets are nasty.You can't clean anything but the surface of them. What remains is a stinky old soiled padding beneath that is impossible to penetrate and clean, and people wonder why their house smells! Yikes!

Then add a dog or two to that situation and it's a sewer.Disgusting.
