As with most things, regular maintenance is the key to make something look better and last longer. Carpet is no different. With a good routine, your carpets look cleaner and remain fresher for longer. Here’s the best way to keep your carpets clean with a little help from Preferred Carpet Care in Redding!
Vacuum your carpets often. High traffic areas of your home require more attention. Dirt and ground in soil cause premature wear and break down carpet fibers. The best way to control this is to vacuum often to remove dirt. Pay attention to spots and treat them as soon as possible to prevent them from becoming stubborn stains.

Professional Carpet Cleaning
Professional cleaning removes damaging soil from your traffic areas that vacuuming alone cannot touch. Professional carpet cleaning is like visiting the dentist. To maintain optimal dental health, it has been proven that people achieve the best dental wellness with a daily routine and a professional cleaning twice a year. The same idea is true when it comes to maintaining your carpets, whether it be residential or commercial carpet cleaning.
In general, carpet cleaning by our IICRC certified professional team should be scheduled at least once per year. If you have extremely heavy traffic areas, such as in a business or office, professional cleaning should happen more often. Proper professional cleaning by Preferred Carpet Care will not leave a sticky residue behind and can be done as many times per year as needed.
DuPont Stainmaster, one of the largest carpet manufacturers in the world, says: “We recommend that carpet be professionally cleaned at least every 12 months” and further, “to maintain texture retention warranties, we recommend carpet be professionally cleaned with hot water extraction every 18 to 24 months.” This recommendation is consistent with most leading manufacturers.
