Professional Carpet Cleaning Services Keep Your Carpet Looking Newer Longer

When you use carpet cleaning services regularly, you can extend the life of your carpets, keep them looking newer longer, and help your family breathe easier. This is because your carpet accumulates a lot of dirt, dust, and other particles that are tough to get out with only routine vacuuming. These particles include pollen, pet dander, hair, bacteria, and a host of other contaminants that can aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms and contribute to other respiratory issues.

Over time, the accumulation of dirt and grime can lead to musty odors, dull the look of your carpets, and shorten their lifespans. That means more money out of your pocket for new carpets more often and a less-than-healthy interior environment for your family.

Just because you can't see it or smell it doesn't mean all the crud deep down in your carpet isn't causing trouble. Here's how:

Greasy Residue and Dirt

Dead skin cells, and other debris from your family and pets accumulates in your carpet, creating a residue. This residue attracts more dirt and locks it into your carpet fibers, causing unhealthy conditions, unsightly traffic lanes, and other damage.

Sandy Soil

If you get down close to your carpet and part the pile, you may be surprised by how much sand your vacuum misses. Sandy particles are sharper and rougher than plain dirt, so they grind away on carpet fibers.


Your carpet can be home to 200,000 bacteria per square inch—that's more germs than you'll find on your toilet seat. Most of these germs are harmless, but others, including E. coli, salmonella, and staphylococcus, can cause digestive issues, skin infections, respiratory illness, or allergic reactions.

The Maids provides professional carpet cleaning services to keep your carpets looking beautiful by removing dirt, dust, allergens, and more. You get great looking carpets and improved air quality within your home from one of the best residential cleaning services in the country.

How to Keep Your Carpet Clean Between Carpet Cleaning Services

While you should have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly, there's plenty you can do to maintain them between services. From prevention to proper cleaning, here's how to keep those carpets in shape:

Leave Dirt at the Door

The easiest way to keep your carpet and rugs cleaner longer is to minimize the dirt you bring inside. Use an indoor and outdoor mat at each entry door to cut down on the debris from outside.

Shed Those Shoes

Your family's shoes can track in bacteria, dirt, chemicals, and fecal matter that gets buried in your carpet. Make it a family rule that everyone must remove their shoes when they come in and preferably leave them outside. You'll keep all that yucky stuff out of your home; as a bonus, no shoes means less wear and tear on your carpet. #Winning!

Keep Air Filters Clean

The less dust, dirt, and other pollutants in the air, the less you'll find in your carpet. Change your return air filters at least every three months or more often if you have pets or family members with allergies or other respiratory issues.

Vacuum Often

Vacuuming makes a big difference in the cleanliness of your home, the air your family breathes, and the life of your carpet. Vacuum at least weekly and make high-traffic areas and pet areas a priority.

Treat Stains Right Away

When stains happen on carpet, the key is to blot the stain right away to keep it from spreading and then clean the rest up. Always use clean white cloths and remember to never scrub the stain, or you could end up permanently setting it!

How Often Should I Use Professional Carpet Cleaning Services?

Dirt and other particles that are left too long work their way into the fibers and break down your carpet's fibers. Once they become embedded, they can be almost impossible to remove. To maintain the appearance of your carpets and extend their lifespan, Home Advisor recommends you use professional carpet cleaners every 6 to 12 months.

They design many carpets to last for 10 to 15 years, whether or not you have them professionally cleaned. Having your carpets cleaned regularly by a pro is the best way to extend your carpets' longevity. But putting off having your carpets cleaned for too long and stains, spots, traffic lanes, and general wear and tear will severely limit the life of your carpets. Without proper maintenance and cleaning, your carpets could wear out unsightly and no one has time for that.

For older carpets that are showing signs of wrinkling or buckling, it's best to have your carpets repaired before you call The Maids. Looseness and bunching up are signs that your carpet may need to be re-stretched or otherwise repaired. Having your carpets cleaned before having the repairs done can make things worse.

Put carpet cleaning on your spring and fall cleaning checklists so that you won't forget to schedule them. Your carpet (and your lungs) will thank you for it. Start using professional carpet cleaners regularly when they are new and you'll enjoy beautiful carpets and cleaner air for years to come.
