Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning
Most carpet manufacturers recommend having your carpet cleaned every twelve to eighteen months to maintain the warranty. If you’re not worried about a warranty, the frequency is best determined by how you live in your home. Smaller homes without pets may only require cleaning once a year. A larger home with children and pets would likely need more frequent cleanings, perhaps twice a year. When it comes to upholstery cleaning, this should be done at least once or twice every two years, unless the upholstery gets frequent abuse by children and pets or if the manufacturer recommends more frequent cleanings. Bottom line? If your carpet or upholstery hasn’t been cleaned in the past year or two, it probably needs a professional cleaning by the trained specialists at SERVPRO of Bay City.

Preventative MaintenanceCarpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.
IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
- Regular vacuuming
- Spot removal
- Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
- Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
- Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet
Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.
