How often should you vacuum carpet flooring?

We can confidently say that there is no such thing as vacuuming your new floors too often. Instead, it's letting dirt accumulate that will cause harm.

Carpets are best vacuumed with an upright cleaner. Be sure it's on the proper setting and clean it often, so it works optimally.

The general rule of thumb

Everyone has different standards when it comes to cleaning. Therefore, the daily vacuum of the heavily trafficked areas, such as entryways and living rooms, is usually advisable.

Then vacuum the rest twice a week. But, depending on your family size, kids, or pets, that schedule can change.

Occasionally flipping the rug, if possible, is also a good idea. This is, so the backing is vacuumed.

You’ll see some beautiful carpets in our flooring store. They include carpet piles of all heights, looped constructions, shags, Saxony, etc.

What dirt does to a rug

The bottom line is that sand and dirt can be sharp and fray fibers and backing. It also mats, dulls, and wears out the carpet prematurely.

It attracts bacteria and serves as a breeding ground for mold and mildew. In addition, a dirty rug impedes airflow.

Why do I hear so much about beater bars?

These are curved metal bars that are attached to the rotating brushes. They agitate dirt, so it's easier to remove.

Speak with the experts at the flooring company to know if you should use one or not. For example, some can damage fibers or certain carpet styles, such as Berber.
