Professional Carpet Cleaning & Maintenance Tips in Riverside, CA
We know that vacuuming is the start to maintaining your carpet. Weekly vacuuming prolongs the life of your carpet and removes loose air pollutants that your carpet traps daily. Vacuum all edges of your carpet at least once a month with a crevice tool to help prevent those dark lines (filtration) from forming and causing permanent damage.
Once those dark lines form, they are extremely difficult to remove with a simple carpet cleaning service. Even the professionals have to use special chemicals to remove these dark lines, and can charge up to $7 a linear foot.
Basic vacuuming for wall-to-wall carpeting 1-5 times a week is the most important maintenance tip we can provide. Rooms and areas used often such as the living room, dining room, and hallways may need more attention.
Vacuum these areas slower, just one pass with a powerful upright vacuum may not be enough to remove embedded soils. Areas not used as much should be ok with a one time over once a week. If you have pets in the home you may have to vacuum areas your animals use every day for maximum soil and allergen removal.
Professional carpet cleaning is recommended every 6-12 months for carpet restoration and the removal of deep down embedded oils, grime, dirt and allergens. Your vacuuming can only go so far before us professionals are needed to restore your carpeting back to its original state.
Carpet manufacturers recommend professional carpet cleaning using the hot extraction method annually in order to maintain the life and warranty of your investment. This is mandatory because soils left in carpet for a long period of time cause irreversible damage to the carpet fibers.
