If you have carpeting in your home, you know that it requires regular cleaning, especially in busy spots in your home. You may have even noticed that some areas of your carpet are wearing unevenly. Deep carpet cleaning can help protect your investment by refreshing high-traffic areas, giving your carpets a more even appearance, and extending their lifespan. Consider deep carpet cleaning to keep your carpets looking their best and lasting longer.

Understanding the High-Traffic Areas in Your Home

Areas of your carpet that see more use require extra attention when cleaning because these areas show more wear, have more stains and discoloration, and can be matted or flattened. Common areas to watch out for include hallways, stairwells, in front of couches and beds, in front of closet doors, and children’s and pets’ play areas.

How Deep Carpet Cleaning Refreshes High-Traffic Areas

High-traffic areas of carpeting in your home do not have to look worn and damaged. A deep carpet cleaning can significantly improve the appearance by removing dirt and grime that has accumulated in the fibers. This cleaning process also prevents soil from causing excess friction that can damage delicate carpet fibers. 

The Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process offered by Chem-Dry can restore the look and feel of overused carpets. This process does not use large amounts of water, allowing your carpets to dry within a few hours rather than days. It also uses carbonation and a detergent-free cleaning solution instead of harsh soaps, so you don’t have to worry about residue attracting more dirt. 

For best results, we recommend deep cleaning high-traffic areas of your carpet at least 1-2 times per year. In between these deep cleanings, be sure to regularly vacuum to remove surface dirt and maintain an even texture.
