There are a lot of things that get passed down in families. These beloved items can be anything from your great grandparent’s dining room table to the rug that you played on at her house when you were a kid. Each of these heirloom items requires maintenance and upkeep to keep their health. Healthy rugs are not dingy, they do not have trapped allergens, and they aren’t going to “look dirty”. To keep those heirloom rugs from losing their joy, regular carpet cleaning is a must.
How Often Do I Need to Clean My Rugs?
Experts state that you should have a carpet cleaning performed on your area rugs every three to five years. Area rugs that get heavy traffic and use will have dirt ground into them with repeated wear. Even if you have a “no shoes in the house” rule, dirt finds a way to penetrate your rugs; it’s rude like that. To make sure that you get the best result for your rug and home, it is advised that you have this service done by a professional carpet cleaner.
There is one simple reason for this: professional grade equipment is far more powerful than the sorts of cleaning equipment that you have for everyday use in your home. These sorts of carpet cleaning devices are not cost-effective due to their expense vs the rate-of-use. Why spend over 3,000 CAD on something you will only use every three years?

What Are the Health Benefits of Cleaning Rugs?
Experts agree that there are three major health benefits to area rug cleaning:
Professional carpet cleaning will ensure all of the allergens that are trapped in the fibers of your rug are completely eliminated. This includes pet dander, food particles, dust, dirt, and even pollen from outside. Some toxic gasses are also prone to “settling” and getting trapped in your rugs. Our professional services will kill all of those irritants during the cleaning process with our shampooing formula. We then finish the job with high powered vacuuming and even drying services.
Infestations can happen to anyone, regardless of the precautions that you take. Some infestations, such as dust mites, can be carried on your clothes and live until you put those clothes through a wash cycle. Steam cleaning and then drying your rugs ensure that the infestation is not only cleaned but cleared.
Humidity is the enemy of every homeowner primarily because of mold. A common problem when people try to clean their rugs themselves is that they “overdo” the water and shampoo. Without professional drying and vacuuming, that water will stand in your rug until it molds. Unfortunately, many types of mold are already causing harm to you and your family before you smell them. If you’re worried about this in your home, make sure that you go with a company that can provide flood restoration to your rugs.
