Arlington cleaner says carpet is like laundry
Keeping a carpet clean can keep your carpet from wearing. Ensuring the life of your carpet often means hiring a professional cleaning service. Marcello Capone of highly rated Capone Carpet Cleaning Co. in Arlington, Mass., says homeowners need to approach cleaning carpet like they do with clothing.
"Carpet and upholstery is just like laundry, you clean to maintain it," Capone says. "When you don't clean it as required, it wears and we can only clean dirt not wear."
Jennifer Critz, owner of highly rated The Clean Team in Kingston, Mass., says homeowners should have a professional cleaning every 12 to 18 months. To reduce cleans, Capone says some of the solutions are obvious but not always followed.
"You can take shoes off, vacuum regularly and eat and drink in the kitchen," Capone says. "It's easer said than done though."
