Bacteria and other allergens become trapped in your carpeting.
Did you know that carpets catch pollutants like dust, dirt particles, and dead skin cells? If you don’t get professional carpet cleanings regularly, microscopic irritants can build up, especially in areas where people live and sleep, such as bedrooms and family rooms. And as we breathe these carpet pollutants in, they can contribute to carpet damage and indoor air quality problems.
Carpet manufacturers recommend that carpet owners clean their carpets with the proper equipment every three months; however, carpet owners who allow their carpeting to become dirty due to pets or children, heavy foot traffic, spills, or poor carpet maintenance will need to clean their carpets far more frequently.
With regular cleanings, your carpets can last for years.
One of the most critical factors in protecting your carpets is to have them cleaned regularly. Proper carpet maintenance increases the life of your carpets significantly, allowing them to last an average of 5 to 8 years longer than carpets that have been allowed to become soiled.
While carpet manufacturers offer warranties ranging from 5 to 20 years, the carpet industry still recommends carpet owners have their carpets cleaned at least once a year. Many carpet manufacturers recommend having your carpet cleaned every six months or more frequently if you have children or pets that often use the carpet. If you keep your home cool during the winter and heat it excessively during the summer, these cleanings should be performed at least twice a year.
Carpet cleaning helps prevent carpet fading and carpet burns.
Many things cause a carpet to fade. Airborne dirt and dust contain many soil particles that can rub off on carpeting as we walk through a room, causing the carpet fibers to become dirty. Dirt particles mixed with perspiration from foot traffic can create an acidic condition on carpeting that leads to color loss, carpet fading, and dulling of the fiber’s luster. Carpet manufacturers recommend you have your carpets cleaned at least once a year to help keep them looking good for as long as possible.
In addition, many types of soils cannot be completely removed from your carpet by simple vacuuming and will need to be removed by carpet cleaning. These include carpet spills, heavy foot traffic soil left behind in small piles due to poor vacuuming, pet accidents, beverage stains, carpet dye transfer from clothing or other materials, and carpet discoloration caused by tobacco smoke.
Are you tired of looking at the same old carpets? Have them professionally cleaned! While regular vacuuming helps reduce carpet wear over time, only professional carpet cleaning can restore the appearance of your carpet to its original condition.
Carpet cleaning helps make future cleanings easier.
Some soils can be removed with carpet vacuuming; however, carpet cleaning can only remove heavy traffic spots and carpet stains. When carpets are kept clean regularly, soils are more likely to be removed with regular vacuuming.
Carpet cleaning preserves indoor air quality.
Carpets are notorious for trapping airborne pollutants, so it’s imperative to have these pollutants removed as they will improve your home’s indoor air quality. If carpet fibers become contaminated from water damage due to carpet leaks, stains, or other carpet issues, they will attract additional airborne debris.
Professional carpet cleaning is an excellent way to protect your carpet investment, improve the appearance and feel of carpet, and maintain indoor air quality. All carpet types benefit from regular carpet cleaning, but the benefits are greater for carpeting that contains a soil retardant or stain guard finish.
