Carpets can be an elegant, cozy addition to your home, with many benefits, such as the insulation they provide and generally being safer than a bare floor where small children and toddlers are concerned. On the other hand, they can be difficult to keep clean, as carpets are more likely to harbor undesirables like nail clippings, germs, caked up mud, hairs, and more. The situation can become even more dire if you have pets, as they will shed or occasionally have an ‘accident’ on your carpet - even those that are trained.

Steam cleaning (also known as ‘deep cleaning’) is a very useful technique that can help remove germs, dirt, foreign (and possibly dangerous) objects, as well as debris lodged deep within the carpet fibres. It can also help prevent the growth of mold, eradicate dust mites, extend your carpet’s life, and generally renew its appearance.

Generally, it’s advisable to steam clean your carpet once or twice a year, but this number can vary for differing scenarios. To determine exactly how often you need to steam clean your carpet, you’ll need to consider several factors, such as:

  • Are you or anybody else in your home a smoker?
  • Do you have a pet(s)?
  • How much foot traffic does your carpet receive?
  • Do you (or anyone else living with you) have any allergies?

If your answer to any (or all) of these questions is ‘yes’, then you should definitely steam clean on the regular side of often.
