A very common carpet misconception- “you should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet.” Wrong! Wrong, wrong, wrong. Dirt, like sandpaper, is abrasive. When your friends or family step foot or even a single toe onto your carpet or sit on your upholstery they are successfully grinding dirt into your carpet fibers. (Sorry! It’s a fact) Dust, dirt, allergens, etc., are existing particles that we quite frankly can not get rid of. However, you can do your best by providing services for your family that will minimize any inevitable crawlers and dust mites. The longer you wait to have your carpet cleaned the more damage you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out.
