One of the best ways to get rid of nasty odors and allergens in your home is by having your carpets professionally cleaned. Carpets can really accumulate a lot of dirt, grime, and dust over time. If you’re not sure if it’s time for professional carpet cleaning, here are 5 signs that indicate it may be:
1. You Notice a Musty Odor Coming From Your Carpets All the Time
A musty or funky odor may indicate that there is a lot of dirt and grime hidden inside your carpets that you can’t see.
2. Your Allergies Have Been Bothering You More Than Usual
If you find that your allergies have been especially bad lately, it is possible there are a lot of allergens hiding in your carpets that are triggering your allergies.
3. The Area Around Your Doorways Has Become Dirtier
If you notice that the area around your doorways has become dirtier than usual, it may be a sign there is too much foot traffic and not enough cleaning.
4. The Carpets Are Darker Than Usual
Carpet fibers can go through a natural aging process, which is why they may appear to be darker than usual. However, if the carpet has been recently cleaned, it shouldn’t appear much darker after a few days. This is another sign that there is too much dirt and grime in your carpets.
5. You Don’t Remember the Last Time You Had Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned
It’s a good idea to have your carpets professionally cleaned every six to twelve months. If you don’t remember the last time they were professionally cleaned, it’s a good sign that this is due for another cleaning.
