The IICRC, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration and Certification is an agency whose goal is to uniformly train carpet cleaning technicians throughout the country and to monitor their performance. According to the IICRC, the appropriate maintenance schedule for your depends upon your family size and a few other factors that OxiGreen Carpet Cleaning in Langhorne, PA has listed for you below.
Do you have a small family, even perhaps live alone, with no smokers or pets? In that case, you really only need to clean your carpeting one time a year. That is the minimum for all homes with indoor carpeting.
Do you have a pet, a smoker or small children? If so, the IICRC recommends having your carpets cleaned twice a year.
Do you have a large family, multiple smokers, or multiple pets? Having your carpets cleaned four times a year is highly recommended.
Why so often, you may ask? Well, there are many good reasons to keep you carpets cleaned and below are just a few.
Clean carpets are healthy carpets. Dirt, dust, pollens and other allergens enter your home on a regular basis on your shoes and clothing and through open windows and doors. These allergens settle in your carpet fibers, many of them deep enough that your vacuum or rented carpet cleaning machine will never touch them. Your small children and pets are constantly inhaling these particles, which are hazardous to their health.
Clean carpets also look better and last longer. Protect this expensive investment by keeping it clean.
