Do your carpets need cleaning? Here are the three cleaning methods to consider to freshen up your carpeting.

1. Purchase a Carpet Cleaning Machine

Walk into any big box retail store and you will find carpet cleaning machines with varying options at a wide range of price points.

We hear this question a lot at Freeman Carpet Cleaning. We certainly understand that everyone is trying to make wise decisions with their money. Carpet cleaning is an immediate expense. However, not taking proper care of your carpet will end up costing you more in the long run. Deep-down soil that settles into the base of your carpet fibers, over time will cause your fibers to break down prematurely. This dirt cannot be removed by vacuuming alone.

The key is to figure out the best professional carpet cleaning schedule for your home’s needs. This will allow you to protect your carpet investment from premature wear as well as to be able to properly budget and plan for the professional carpet cleaning fees.

  1. Vacuum

    Carpets need to be vacuumed at least 1-2 times a week, more for high traffic homes or homes with children or pets.

    But my carpet doesn’t look dirty? It’s what you can’t see that can really hurt your carpet. Small clay, sand, and quartz particles are constantly being tracked into your home. These small particles settle into your carpet fibers and rub like sand paper, damaging the carpet and causing it to wear out more quickly than it would have with regular vacuuming.

    Regular vacuuming will also help remove pollutants and allergens from your home, creating a healthier environment for everyone.
