According to The Central Institute for Meteorology and Geo Dynamics (ZAMG), this past summer was one of the warmest ones ever recorded, with record highs reported worldwide. Rainfall in the heat also created steamy, humid days. Unfortunately, these are perfect conditions for flea infestation, which has allegedly also been worse this year.
If you wonder how often you should clean your carpet, you’re probably not alone. As a general rule, every six months is a good idea – however, certain factors can affect this recommendation. If you have pets in your home or live with smokers, for example, you may find that you have to clean your carpets more frequently.
Summer is here and your family and pets are running in and out of the house, tracking dirt and debris everywhere! You’ve just invested in a new carpet and want to keep it looking new and clean. But this everyday dirt, dust, and debris is tearing at your carpet’s surface and wearing it out, so it’s important you remove all of the dirt. But how often should you clean your carpet?
For most of us, our dogs are a member of the family – which means they also often have full run of the house. And during the summer months when dogs are more likely to be outside playing, picking up dirt on their paws and shedding more, keeping the house clean is a challenge. While you may have to make some adjustments to keep your home clean, for dog lovers, the benefit of having your pet far outweighs the extra time you will spend cleaning up after him.
Tips for Summer Cleaning
With summer nearly here, chances are you’d rather be enjoying outside activities with your friends and family than staying inside cleaning your house. However, this time of year dirt in traffic areas can increase because family and pets are going in and out of doors more often. And with the kids home from school, clutter can build up very quickly.
