With over 20 years of experience cleaning carpets here in Utah, TruRinse professionals have cleaned up a lot of spills, spots, and dirt. Frequently customers ask us when they should clean their carpets, upholstery, or area rugs. Below is a list of key indicators to help you know it’s time to deep clean your carpets or other surfaces in your home or business.
1. Has it been six months since your last cleaning?
Carpet, upholstery, and area rugs need to be maintained just like anything else we own and care about. The way a car needs an oil change every 3,000 miles to help maintain the life of the vehicle and make sure it continues to run properly, our interior spaces also need routine maintenance to keep them beautiful and prevent premature wear and tear.
2. Is there visible soil?
Are traffic lanes starting to appear darker or dirtier than other areas in your home? Are the arms or seats of your couch or chair starting to look dingy or dirtier than they should be? What about your area rugs – are they starting to lose their original vibrancy?
Weather and outdoor conditions play a role as well. Tracking in mud, snow, and other debris from outside makes our indoor surfaces visibly dirty fast! Don’t mistake dirty carpets, rugs, or furniture for old or worn out, many times these need a good clean to help them look new again. Our TruRinse technicians can also help you understand the difference between a spot, dirt, or if there is damage.
3. Do you have major spots or spills?
Do you have a dog? A cat? Children?
In the course of our daily lives, accidents happen. All sorts of substances wind up spilled on the surfaces of our homes. When spills happen, don’t let the spill sit too long before getting it cleaned up. We recommend patting it to get the initial liquid or spill out of the carpet. Then schedule an appointment for a professional deep cleaning to remove anything that seeped beyond the surface of the carpet.
4. Has anyone in your home recently been sick?
With the coronavirus pandemic maintaining our health is at the forefront of everything we do. Even with just a regular cold or flu, the surfaces in our homes. TruRinse is taking extra precautions during this time to ensure the health of our customers and our technicians. If anyone in your household has been sick we highly recommend a deep clean of your carpets and upholstery. We also recommend this for anyone operating a vacation rental property at this time.
