Should you wait as long as possible to clean your carpets?by Tiki Honkanen on 03/01/16
The simple answer is no. Dirt is an abrasive like sandpaper. Every time you step on your carpets you grind the dirt into your carpet fibers. This cuts your carpet just as if you had used a knife, causing it to wear out faster. A dirty carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps it simply is not enough. The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned the more damage you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out. So it may seem like you are saving money if you do not have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12-18 months as recommended, but in all reality you are extending the life of your carpets.
