How Often Should You Clean Your Carpets?

Cleaning your carpets is a worthwhile task to prolong the life and quality of your carpets and to make the most out of your investment. However, we understand that cleaning carpets can take a lot of time and effort, and it is difficult to prioritise this over the many things on your to-do list. But, this doesn’t mean it isn’t important or that it shouldn’t be of high priority.


Carpets are the single most used item in your home.They experience more wear and tear than anything else in your entire house (in most cases). Without thorough cleaning, dirt, pet dander, food particles and dust mites THRIVE. What happens when all these particles thrive? Bacteria grows and germs spread, leaving you and your family with a potentially very unhealthy home. You can limit the growth of bacteria by vacuuming regularly but it is important to treat your carpets to a deep clean every 6 to 12 months.


Deep cleans involve sanitising, cleaning, deodorising and protecting your carpet. DIY machines often leave a sticky residue that becomes worse each time you step foot on your carpet, as it attracts new dirt and acts like a magnet against preserving them. This makes DIY deep cleans last all of a few days before your carpet reaches the level of bacteria that requires another. JAE’s fully-trained experts use equipment that extracts the residue and bacteria to bring the life back to your carpets. The specialised treatments and technicians clean and sanitise the carpet (including spot treatments), then deodorise, and finally protect your carpet against dirt and bacteria until the next timely deep clean - 6 to 12 months later.


Whether your carpets in a residential or commercial space need a thorough clean, restoration after flooding or major spills, or even after a long period of lockdown, the team at JAE can help to restore and refresh your carpets. Get in touch with us today to discuss how our carpet cleaning can give your carpets a longer, healthier life.
