Everyone loves a clean home, and an important part about keeping your home clean is the floors. Being used and walked on every day can make floors and carpets a tough, and not to mention tedious, part of your home to keep clean. However, keeping your carpets and floors clean has its advantages. By cleaning your carpets on a regular basis, you can end up saving more money in the long run.
What to Know About Cleaning Your Floors
This may come as a surprise to most people, but carpets are actually more cost-effective than hard surface flooring. When it comes to the cost of equipment, labor, and supplies to install a hard surface floor versus carpet, carpet is on average 65% cheaper to maintain over a long time period.
With this being said, hard flooring typically need to be cleaned two and a half times more annually than carpet. Not only does this raise the price in cleaning costs, but the supplies used to clean and maintain hard floors are on average more expensive as well.
When it comes to cleaning your carpets, it is always best to use supplies that are approved and safe for carpets. If you’re not sure whether certain chemicals are safe or not for your carpets, it’s always a good idea to call your local carpet cleaning provider for information on which cleaners are safe to use, and which cleaners are best to avoid.
As we’ve frequently mentioned in previous blog posts, one of the best ways you can extend the life of your carpets is by vacuuming. Consistent vacuuming can remove up to 95% of dry soil in a carpet. The way to maximize the cleanliness of your carpets is to keep to a consistent cleaning schedule. Vacuuming on a bi-weekly basis (twice a week) is a great way to keep your carpets clean. At the very least, carpets should be vacuumed once per week. Areas that lead outdoors are most susceptible to dirt and debris, which are areas that should be focused on.
Lastly, all carpets need a deep clean every once in a while. Professional carpet cleanings can effectively remove most of the dirt and grime from your carpets.
