This was a crazy carpet cleaning in Seabrook.
We clean all sorts of homes. We see the best and the worst of it all. This time we saw some very filthy carpet. Fortunately, we were in there fixing that issue and it turned out great. More than anything we love to see our clients happy. You can bet we had a very happy family after this cleaning.
What causes this kind of buildup?
The biggest issue that we see causing this much soil in carpet is the pets. Animals produce body oil just as we do and over time it will rub off onto the carpet. This is typically seen in areas the pet spends the most time laying down. Another big source is dirt walkways or dirt driveways outside the home. Then of course, keeping your shoes on while walking on the carpet is going to transfer all of that soil from outside onto your carpet. There is also a commonly overlooked source for heavily soiled carpet, kids! They don’t always follow the rules and quite often have accidents.
What can you do to prevent this kind of buildup?
If you have dogs or large animals, give them a bath every few weeks. This will prevent them from building up and transferring oil from their body to the carpet. If you don’t have any, buy a walk-off mat for inside or outside of your home. This will reduce the amount of dirt on your shoes that gets brought in. And the best way to prevent this 5 years of buildup is to have your carpet cleaned regularly, especially if you have pets or kids.
How often should this carpet be cleaned?
Every household is different so you have to consider your own situation.
- Are you taking your shoes off at the door?
- Do you have walk-off matts or rugs?
- Do you have pets or kids? How active of a lifestyle do you live?
- How often do you vacuum?
Generally we recommend that if you have pets or kids, have the carpet cleaned about once a year. If you don’t have pets or kids, cleaning every 1-2 years is what we typically recommend.
