Carpet & Upholstery Care and Maintenance:
Clean carpet and upholstery requires maintenance. A steam clean or deep clean once a year for light usage. At least twice a year with heavier usage. To remove the dirt and dust the vacuum is missing.
Washing off the dirt that sticks to the fibers. Vacuums only remove loose dirt. Vacuum a minimum of 2 times weekly, or more for carpet. Don't forget the stairs sometimes we recommend a smaller vacuum for the stairs. Vacuum at least once every 2 weeks for upholstery. Vacuuming gets the loose dirt and allergens that settle. Vacuuming will extend the life of your carpets and furniture. Choose a low pile carpet for heavy use and thicker pile for light usage. Choosing the right carpet is important.
Rotate your furniture in all of the rooms if possible. To make sure one area of carpet is not getting
too much wear, indentations or dirt in one area.
Interesting Carpet & Upholstery Information
It has been proven that carpets and furniture absorb dust, dirt and pollutants from the air you breath. They are filters that trap pollutants and allergens. They do more than add warmth and comfort. Without them you would be breathing in a lot more dust. They also absorb sound. Evenly spread dirt is from dust that settles. When carpets are cleaned regularly they can be a benefit to your home.
Synthetic carpets and upholstery are generally easier to clean. Natural materials are more absorbent.
Up to 6700 metric tons of dust falls from space every year, that is a lot. Our planet sheds a large amount of dust on it’s own, In urban areas there is more dust, from the lack of trees to absorb it. The city dust is mixed with car emissions. The particles of dust are so small they are invisible. This dust is steady and adds up to significant amounts. Now you know where all of that dirt comes from.
