At Precise Carpet Cleaning St. Louis Mo. we would love to make every carpet we clean look brand new again. A lot of times this isn’t possible. Although we do try to do everything we can to accomplish, this the truth is there is a difference between cleaning and making a carpet look brand new. Every carpet we service in the St. Louis area will be thoroughly cleaned but not every carpet will look brand new when we are done. It normally takes a few years after a carpet is installed to start to show some wear patterns or at least have areas that do not look brand new anymore. Some of the carpet we clean has not been cleaned as soon as it needed to be and will have some wear patterns in the traffic areas that may not look new when we are done. The carpet will always be clean but clean and looking the way it did when it was new are two different things.
A good way to judge if your carpet needs to be cleaned is to look at your high traffic areas from different angles and at different times of day to see if there is a shadow or any discoloration in the carpet. If so it is time to clean. If you let it go past this point you may have some wear areas after the carpet is cleaned that do not look as good as you would like. Carpet gets worn in traffic areas due to the soil in the carpet being walked over, when this happens the soil will start to damage the carpet fiber and cause it to look discolored and worn. The best way to prevent this is to vacuum your carpet on a regular basis with a high quality vacuum that is properly maintained and to have your carpet cleaned on a regular basis. For most residential carpet in high use area it should be cleaned every 6 months to 2 years.
