Carpets are the most highly trafficked furnishing in our homes. Our carpet is constantly being walked on, laid on, sat on, and spilled on. It is exposed to dirt and contaminants on a daily basis – from pets, to shoes, to food, drinks, and all sorts of things. It is no wonder that carpet accumulates dirt, soil, dust, and other potentially harmful bacteria and contaminants. The EPA declares carpets, rugs, and other soft surfaces as a ‘health hazard’ if not properly cleaned on a regular basis. They recommend carpets be vacuumed once a week, and professionally cleaned every 6-18 months to eliminate these hazards, extend the life of your carpet, and keep it looking its best.
Professional carpet cleaning ensures that more allergens, mold, bacteria, microorganisms, and soil are removed from your carpet than by vacuuming alone, or trying to clean your carpets on your own. Over time, dirt, dust, and allergens will accumulate in your carpet and get embedded in its fibers. While vacuuming is extremely important, it only removes surface dirt so all the debris that has become embedded in your carpet remains there. Some of these allergens may build up so much that they begin to contaminate the air you breath. When these contaminants find their way into the air, they can cause respiratory problems and allergic reactions. Professional carpet cleaners are able to kill these allergens and remove them from your home so that they are no longer a health threat. With the use of professional equipment, they can get your carpets fully cleaned and sanitized.
Carpets are made up of tightly twisted tufts of fibers. When dirt accumulates on these fibers, it can weaken and damage them. When you combine this with the foot traffic carpets are exposed to, there is some serious wear and tear that can harm your carpet if dirt is not fully removed. This will begin to give your carpet a dull appearance, and will eventually cause the fibers to split and deteriorate. Removing this debris will help improve the look and appearance of your carpet, and also extend the longevity of your carpet. Carpet is not cheap, and you want to make sure you make it last both aesthetically and functionally. Trying to deep clean carpets on your own increases the risk of damaging carpet fibers. Loosening and weakening these fibers will greatly decrease the lifespan of your carpet, which will end up costing more money in the long haul. Regular professional carpet cleaning will prolong the beauty and life of your carpets, without any risk of damage to carpet fibers.
