Professional Carpet Cleaning Brisbane

How Often Should You Have Professional Carpet Cleaning?

Homes and offices should have their floors vacuumed regularly; this not only keeps them clean, it helps to preserve the life and the look of the rug.  Dirt and mud wear down the nap of rugs and can ruin the fibres.  The longer you put off cleaning and vacuuming, the more dirt that gets ground in and the harder it is to clean.

Professional carpet cleaning can also help to remove ground-in dirt and mud and give your floors a fresh look.  How often you have this done will depend upon a few factors, including the foot traffic you have and the type of materials used for rugs.  Consider a few simple tips for deciding how often you need a professional to clean your floors.

Type of Traffic

A home with just one person that makes a habit of removing their shoes at the door will need fewer visits by a professional than a home with active children that are never concerned with removing their footwear.

If you have rambunctious boys that track mud and dirt into the home regularly, you might want to consider professional services twice per year.  For others, once per year is usually sufficient; after the winter weather when the family has been more likely to bring in mud and slush from the outdoors is typically the best time to schedule an appointment.

For businesses, the type of traffic you have is also important to consider, but so is the overall look of your facility.  You never want to have a poor appearance or give a bad impression to visitors simply because your floors are less than pristine.  For some offices, twice yearly is enough for carpet cleaning but for others, it may be good to schedule it every quarter so that the floors always look their best; this includes offices in:


  • Burpengary
  • Morayfield
  • Eaton’s hill
  • Brisbane
  • Ipswich
  • Kallangur
  • Sandgate

Type of Material

A higher nap on rugs is likely to get worn down and hold dirt more readily than a Berber style weave.  Often apartments use very low nap on their carpeting so that it looks presentable for as long as possible.

If you notice that the nap on your rugs looks worn down, it’s time for a steam.  This will pull dirt from the fibres along the top of the rugs as well as dirt and grime that has settled along the base.  When you have a professional steam your rugs, it will restore the nap and make your carpeting look brand new.

There are no hard and fast rules about how often to have your carpeting treated by a professional, but you don’t want to put it off unnecessarily.  The right professional steam can restore the look of your floors and keep everything looking pristine and new, and help your carpeting to last for as long as possible.
