If you’ve changed the carpets in your house a number of times while living there, it's probably time to rethink how you clean your floors. You deserve to be happy with your home's flooring, and you need carpet that will last. Understandably, you’ve probably tried everything to prolong your carpet’s life. Between pet pick-up tips, foot traffic decisions, and even remodeling jobs, you’ve seen it all.


While DIY carpet protection and prevention tips work, they don't compare to a professional cleaning job. West Side Carpet Cleaning knows the ins and outs of carpet health. We want to show you how to boost your carpet’s lifespan—the right way.


The Over-Cleaning Myth

A lot of homeowners turn to DIY carpet health practices because they’re worried about over-cleaning their carpets. In reality, frequently cleaning your carpet with professional-level care will prolong its life. Even vacuuming on a daily basis is shown to extend a carpet’s life.


Are Professional Cleanings the Way to Go?

We believe they are. See, your carpet carries a lot of particles. These particles can destroy the carpet’s fibers over time—reducing the carpet’s lifespan. Professional cleanings avoid the wear-and-tear associated with heavy-duty DIY methods. Aside from regular vacuuming, these solo methods can do more harm than good.


How Often Should I Get it Cleaned?

Consider getting your carpet professionally cleaned about every six months. Between these professional cleanings, keep vacuuming, do spot cleans when necessary, and keep an eye on high-traffic areas—in front of doors, hallways, and just outside the kitchen.


If you have pets, children, or a particularly active lifestyle, call your West Side Carpet Cleaning provider a little more often. Trust us: It’s well worth the extra time spent. “High risk” carpets can be destroyed before you know it.


Down to the Nitty Gritty

When you vacuum your carpet, you’re not removing the soils which have accumulated in your carpet’s depths. This dirt is like sandpaper. It damages your carpet’s fibers, over time, and ruins the overall texture of your carpet.
