Carpet cleaning can be a solo project, but you’re better off contacting a professional. Carriage Cleaning Service knows the ins and outs of every stain, preventing long-term damages with short-term services. If you’re worried about your carpet’s future health, put us on the job. Between pet-related stains, spills, odor, and marks, your carpet can take a beating. Before you know it, it’s too late.


Sometimes, though, it isn’t too late. So, how long is too long? We’re here to help you find out.



Sign One: Too Many Traffic Patterns

Eventually, your carpet will pick up foot-related stains. If your living room is sporting numerous traffic patterns, however, you should contact a professional. A dark foot traffic trail means dirt, grime and who-knows-what-else are deep inside your carpet’s fibers. You won’t be able to lift them yourself. If you wait much longer, they may not be removable.


Sign Two: Sneezing

If sneezing is a common theme in your home, your carpet might contain allergens. While every carpet eventually traps allergens, their build-up will result in sneezing and coughing. If this is the case, you might’ve waited too long to handle the problem. You also need professional care, because do-it-yourself solutions, at this point, won’t be comprehensive enough to lift the dust, mites and other irritants.


Sign Three: Bent Fibers

If your carpet looks like a matt these days, you might’ve waited too long to get it professionally cleaned. Short, matted fibers are evidence of deep-seated grime, dirt, and mold. If your rug isn’t long and fluffy anymore, it definitely needs a deep clean. Unfortunately, mold and mildew are tough to lift with household tools.


Sign Four: Wear and Tear

Wear and tear, too, require quick attention. Your regular cleaning methods might lift surface-level dirt, but your carpet’s torn edges might be housing deeper problems. Polyester carpet fibers are particularly difficult to deal with, post-rip. Even if you’ve fixed small rips and tears, you should hire a professional to double-check the repair.


Sign Five: A Bad Odor

Does your carpet have a lingering smell? The odor might’ve penetrated deep into its fibers, the carpet’s pad or even the subfloor. Your carpet might even have mold and mildew. If you’re smelling a bad odor, have a professional take a look.
