If you’ve visited Kenosha Carpet Cleaning Blog before you know how much and how often we stress the importance of routine vacuuming. If you haven’t visited before, vacuuming your carpet on a regular basis is the most important element of caring for your carpet investment.
We recommend vacuuming heavier traffic areas once a day and the entire home at least twice per week. Homes with pets should also have their carpets vacuumed once a day or multiple times per week.
Routing vacuuming will remove surface level dirt and help maintain the plush feel and bright colors of your carpet, however, over time, the quality will deteriorate unless you go even further with your vacuuming and carpet cleaning routine.
First and foremost, we recommend carpets be professionally cleaned once every 12-18 months. Professional carpet cleaners use their expertise and advanced technology to provide a deep clean that traditional vacuums and spot removal treatments can’t.
Another way to drastically extend the lifetime of your carpet is to “deep vacuum”. Deep vacuuming goes beyond the basic vacuum process.
A typical vacuum routine requires one pass over the carpet. Deep vacuuming requires anywhere from four to 10 passes, including moving furniture when possible or using attachments to vacuum around and beneath furniture too large to move and doors and base boards as well.
Deep vacuuming should be done at least once every two weeks or more depending whether your home has pets or children or a lot of heavier traffic areas.
Deep vacuuming and routine vacuuming in combination with annual professional carpet cleaning will extend the lifetime of your carpet well into the future and keep your investment looking as beautiful as the day you bought it.
