3 Common Reasons For Dirty Carpets

A few things can cause carpets to collect dirt pretty easily. While some may be easy to expect, others can be quite surprising. Here are some reasons why your carpets are always dirty.

  1. High Traffic
    The most common reason for dirty carpets is high traffic. If you take some time to check your carpets, you will find that the ones in high-traffic areas get dirty first. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should remove carpets from high-traffic areas. In most instances, high-traffic areas are the ideal locations to place rugs and carpets. Rugs that are in the entryways, for instance, receive large amounts of dirt, grime, and mud building. However, this is also the most noticeable area of your home. The best way to ensure that your entryway rugs are always clean is to hire carpet cleaning services.
  2. Food and Drink
    For some reason, it seems like carpets are magnets for alcoholic drinks and wine. You also have cranberry juice and all other drinks spilled on your carpets all the time. If you have your carpets in areas where people move around with food and drinks, in the dining area for instance, then that is probably why they are always dirty. This is why it makes sense to regularly hire carpet cleaning services for these areas.
  3. Pets and Children
    These two are enemies of clean carpets. While pets and kids are quite adorable, they also have a tendency to knock over everything in their paths. When it comes to spilled food and drinks on your carpet, you can expect the impact to be amplified if you have kids and pets in your home. If your kids and pets sometimes spend time outside, then your carpets are in trouble. According to the Guardian, about 75% of people admit to wearing their outdoor shoes on the carpet. Pets and kids bring in lots of dirt from the outside. Apart from that, you also have pets bringing lots of dirt, hair, and dander.

You must always remember to remove your outdoor shoes each time you come back home. This will go a long way in ensuring that your carpets stay cleaner for longer. Do you need help cleaning your carpets? Get in touch with us today for the most reliable carpet cleaning services.
