Have you ever thought about the carpet in your home as an investment? One that requires routine maintenance, just like your kitchen appliances or your car.

If not, you should start. Cleaning your carpets regularly not only extends the life and durability of your household carpet, especially in high foot traffic areas, but can also keep your house looking clean, smelling fresh, and improve the indoor air quality. Think about your carpet as one of the most frequently used things inside your home. How often do you clean all other frequently used items in your house?

It is recommended that your carpets be professionally cleaned every six to  12 months, depending on the type of carpet you have, the amount of foot traffic, and whether you have pets. We also recommend that you vacuum often. In areas of high foot traffic, that should be once daily. Areas with less traffic, we recommend at least once per week. 

Do you remember the last time you cleaned your carpets? And not just vacuumed, but gave them a good deep clean to remove those pesky spots and stains you’ve likely been staring at for a while. 

If you can’t remember, then it’s probably time. And now is as good a time as any. 

You might be thinking that you don’t need to have them done. You’ve cleaned up the stains on your own and vacuum regularly, so they don’t look dirty, but there is always more than meets the eye. 

We have compiled a list of our top five reasons why you should hire a professional carpet cleaner.

1. Complete Removal of Dust and Dirt 

Do you walk around the house with your shoes on after coming in from outside? Now picture all the dirt and debris you picked up while walking around finding a warm and dark home deep in your carpet. Gross, right?

Vacuuming, even regularly, won’t completely remove dust and dirt from the deepest parts of your carpet fibers. TruRinse professional carpet cleaning uses steam cleaning technology to get the job done and ensure your carpets are free of dirt and foreign particles. 

2. Extend the Life of your Carpet

Just like all the lovely and expensive things in your life, your carpet needs to be maintained regularly to keep it clean and long-lasting. Over time, especially in high foot traffic areas, your carpet will accumulate dust, dirt, allergens, and everyday debris tracked in from the outside. As everything continues to build up and is repeatedly walked on, it becomes further embedded within the fibers of your carpet, eventually causing a breakdown or deterioration of your carpet. 

The continued buildup of dust, dirt, and grime can damage and wear out your carpet at a faster rate than intended. Don’t let your carpet fall victim to premature wear and tear. Keeping it clean and maintaining it properly will ensure it lasts a long time in your home and can also protect the warranty on your carpet.

3. Supports a Healthier Home Environment

Believe it or not, dirty carpets can contribute to the poor air quality in your home. Your carpet is a hoarder of allergens, most of which can be partially held responsible for your terrible allergy flare-ups. 

Readily available everyday consumer vacuums can’t pick up the dirt and debris hiding deep within the fibers of your carpet. This allows for the dust mites and allergens that get caught in your carpets to find their way up into the air you breathe at home, causing an increase in allergic reactions, respiratory issues, and even skin reactions.  

The way carpets are professionally cleaned is critical in getting rid of the trapped dust and allergens from deep within your carpets. The TruRinse approach for carpeting cleaning is done using high-powered, truck-mounted hot water (at least 210 degrees) extraction to ensure all dust, dirt, and debris are removed and the deep fibers of your carpet are left cleaned.

4. A Store-Bought Carpet Cleaner isn’t Going to Cut it 

Not all carpets are designed and manufactured the same. Alongside the many different carpet materials out there today, there are as many cleaning treatments. Store-bought machines and DIY and chemical carpet cleaning solutions can cause more damage, sometimes irreversible, to already fragile carpet fibers when misused. Store-bought or rented cleaning equipment often doesn’t have the same equipment that professional carpet cleaners have.  

At TruRinse, we have spent the past 10 years providing high-quality carpet cleaning solutions to our Utah customers. Our technicians have extensive knowledge of the different brands and types of carpet in our customers’ homes and offer the best cleaning methods and safest solutions for cleaning carpets of all shapes and materials.   

5. Proper Removal of Spots and Stains

Get it done right the first time. It’s challenging to remove a spot or stain previously treated improperly. While it’s common to think a wine spot is a wine stain, that’s not true. All carpet is not the same and will hold a spot and stain differently. What will work on one carpet will not always work on the other. 

Having your carpet professionally cleaned to remove spots or stains is the smartest way to ensure no further damage is done to your carpet. All of our technicians here at Trurinse are trained and knowledgeable about all the different carpet materials and fibers and understand the proper care needed for your carpet to look its best. 

As one of the most expensive and most frequently used items in your home, it’s in your best interest for both time and money to watch after and maintain your carpets. Routine carpet care can also help you to keep and add value to your home.
