Carpet being cleaned by an extractor Regularly Cleaning Your Carpets Can Make Them Last Longer

Did you know your carpets will last longer if you get them cleaned regularly?  It is recommended you vacuum your carpets with a beater brush type vacuum with good suction frequently and get them professionally cleaned at least once a year.  Most professionals use hot water extraction cleaning which is the method recommended by DuPont, Monsanto, and Allied Fibers.  If you have pets, high traffic areas, or extra soil on your carpets, you may want to talk with a professional about having them cleaned more frequently.  

Also good practice is to have your drapery cleaned on a regular basis.  It is recommended to have them professionally cleaned once every 2 years provided you have a smoke free home and depending on your heating system.  Lightly vacuuming the drapes on a regular basis will also help keep them looking fresh and clean.  Although direct sunlight is often to blame for fabric deterioration in color, it is often caused by oily atmospheric soil.
