Of all the furnishings in a home, the carpet experiences the most traffic which contributes to dirt accumulation and general wear and tear. It is important to keep the carpet and maintained to not only keep it looking new but also to increase its longevity. The carpet in a home should be professionally cleaned once or twice a year depending on the foot traffic in your home. Homeowners should make sure to vacuum the carpet regularly between professional cleanings
Advantages of Carpet Cleaning
1.Extends the life of your carpet One major benefit of a professional carpet cleaning service is that it helps extend the life of your carpet. Over time, dirt, dust, allergens, and other debris accumulate in the carpet which can eventually cause the carpet fibers to split and deteriorate. Removing this build-up of dirt and debris will help improve the longevity of the carpets.
Professional carpet cleaners typically use cleaning methods involving hot water extraction to effectively remove the debris within the fibers and leave the carpet sanitized. Homeowners can also help decrease the build-up of debris in the carpet between cleanings by vacuuming regularly.
2.Contributes to a healthier environment Some of the dust and allergens that get trapped in the carpet may find their way into breathing where they can cause respiratory problems, allergic reactions, and other health problems. The high temperature of the water used by most carpet cleaning professionals kills off these allergens so that they are no longer a health threat and leaves the carpet sanitized.
3.Complete removal of dirt and bacteria While it’s much easier to vacuum around the home than hiring a cleaning service, a vacuum will only remove surface dirt. So all that debris that has embedded with the fibers will stay there until it receives professional treatment. Over time, this will cause excess wearing on the fibers, deteriorating the carpet faster. Bacteria in the carpet can also create odors, making it more difficult to breathe causes asthma or allergies.
4.Eliminates Carpet Stains Another great advantage provided by professional carpet cleaning is that they can remove tough stains. Using the hot water extraction method, professionals can remove stains from all of the following:
Dust and mud, Ink, Pet stains, Food
After a professional carpet cleaning service, you shouldn’t have to worry about looking at the ugly spots or be embarrassed in front of guests.
5.No Residues If the equipment or products are cheaper, they can be inefficient and leave some of the cleaning solutions behind. On the other hand, the equipment used by carpet cleaning professionals is always updated and uses commercial cleaning products to restore carpeting to a like-new condition. They also employ the hot water extraction technique to achieve the best results, leaving the carpet fibers free of all dirt and stains.
6.Reduces Traffic Lane Effects Areas of carpeting that receive significant foot traffic, including hallways, living rooms, kitchens, etc., become dirty much faster than those in bedrooms or under couches. This is because dust is constantly being tracked in these areas, and you may have even noticed that these areas are darker than others. But the advantage of professional carpet cleanings is that they will remove the dust and slow down these “traffic lanes” effects. The dark areas of the carpet get removed and, the fibers get restored.
7.Enhances the overall appearance of the room Over time the room can look dirty and outdated just by the carpet’s condition. Professional carpet cleaning can keep not only the fibers looking new but improve the aesthetics of the room.
