If your house has carpet, there’s no getting around it: You’re going to have to get it cleaned. Carpet is among the most beautiful and comfortable of flooring options, but also one of the most high maintenance ones out there. If you want your carpet looking tip-top, you’ll need to get it cleaned regularly.
At Dr. Chem-Dry, we’ve seen what a huge difference a clean carpet can have in a home. Here are five signs that you need to have your carpet cleaned.

Your Allergies Keep Acting Up
Carpets can be a hotbed for allergens. From dust mites to pet dander and pollen and beyond, all sorts of tiny particles can get stuck in the carpet fibers, just waiting to be disturbed by your footsteps so they can circulate in the air and set off your allergies. Some of these allergens can get stuck deep in the carpet fibers and become very hard to ferret out with vacuuming. A professional carpet cleaning will eradicate the allergens in your carpet, giving your overworked allergies some sweet relief.
Dirty carpets can trap in odors like nobody’s business. They can especially start to stink if they get wet. Wet carpets that aren’t treated can develop mildew and mold over time. Not only does mold smell, it can pose a serious health risk if left to circulate in your air.
It Looks Dirty
This is the most obvious sign that your carpets need cleaning. Is it riddled with stains? Does it look blotchy and worn down? Some stains can get so deep into your carpet that conventional cleaning products won’t clean them up. And in most cases, you’re better off not even trying to clean them on your own: The wrong cleaning products can permanently damage your carpets.

It Looks Old
Carpet cleaning doesn’t just clean your flooring- It rejuvenates it. A cleaning can make an old carpet look brand new again. Carpets suffer wear and tear naturally over the years, especially if they get a lot of foot traffic. Cleaning them regularly will restore them to their original glory and the more often they are cleaned with Chem-Dry the longer they will last..
You Have Pets
We all love our pets, but you may need to get your carpets cleaned more often if you have pets. Pets can have “accidents” on your carpets, they can drag themselves across it leaving all types of germs in their wake, they can tear it up with their claws and litter it with their dander. Pay attention to your pets: If they spend a LOT of time on your carpets, you will need to get them cleaned.
