Carpets cover our floors to make them look nicer. But how to help our carpets last longer? Everyday traffic and occasional spills do not make them look better. Regular hoovering can only defend our carpets from light dirt and dusty grit. But during the years the carpet fabrics get easily worn out and rugs look untidy without proper cleaning. Thus, plan to clean your carpets properly at least once a year. In case your floors are covered with light rugs or you have pets or kids, it is advisable to do thorough carpet cleaning minimum twice a year.

All carpets should be vacuumed before the clean. Only then the rugs can be professionally cleaned. Note that all furniture should be protected or removed from the perimeter. Thus, take advantage of a friend’s help to assist you with that. It is highly recommended to ask a cleaning company to do the whole job. Do not be frustrated by paying a little bit more to professionals in order to avoid any inconvenience or disappointment from the carpet cleaning.

When you think about cleaning your carpets more than twice a year, you start to calculate the costs that you might have to spend on this process. Often people consider buying their own carpet cleaning system. But it is not always a way out for an average family. Of course, you are always welcome to compare buying a pro-style model to be used in your home to hiring professional cleaners two or three times a year. But bear in mind that buying you own carpet cleaning system will require an additional space for storage plus the power of the unit might not equal to the one of the contractor’s. And with your own system you will have to do everything yourself. Though buying one is the first step in becoming a professional cleaner yourself.

If you do not want to buy a carpet cleaning system and do not want to book cleaning services, you might be thinking of renting a professional steam cleaner from the local supermarket or garden centre. The advantage of choosing this option is that you will have a variety of choice in models and the power they can provide. Consult the experts at the rental store on the equipment power and suitability before you rent something. Be ready to spend some extra money on fees and cleaning accessories, but it will be the price paid for you carpets not to look dirty.

You still might be disappointed with the costs of renting a cleaner and buying you own cleaning system. It may prompt you to decide to hire a professional cleaner, who will have more powerful equipment and, of course, more experience in carpet cleaning. In this case, the price for removing stains can heavily differ, so choose the best around, not the first option.

When you clean your carpets once, you will become so happy to see them tidy again. This feeling will probably inspire you to do the carpet cleaning more often that you originally planned. But all change is for good, because dirty carpets cannot make anyone happy while the clean ones keep everyone satisfied.
