Of all the furnishings in a home, the carpet experiences the most direct traffic which contributes to dirt accumulation and general wear and tear. It is important to keep the carpet clean and well 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 amount of foot traffic in your home. Homeowners should make sure to vacuum the carpet at least once a week 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 and get embedded within the fibres which can eventually cause the fibres to split and deteriorate. Removing this build up of dirt and debris will help improve the longevity of the carpet as dust and other debris are more likely to adhere to a dirty carpet than a clean carpet.
Professional carpet cleaners typically use cleaning methods involving hot water extraction to effectively remove the debris from deep within the fibres 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 fibres may find their way into the breathing air 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 surface of the carpet fully sanitized.
3. Complete removal of dirt and bacteria
While it’s much easier to vacuum around the home than hiring a carpet cleaning service, a vacuum will only remove surface dirt. So all that debris that has become embedded with the fibres will stay there until it receives professional treatment.
Over time, this will cause excess wearing on the fibres, deteriorating faster. Bacteria in the carpet can also create odours, making it more difficult to breathe for those battling asthma or allergies.
4. Eliminates Carpet Stains
Another great advantage provided by professional carpet cleanings is that they can remove tough stains. Using the hot water extraction method, professionals are able to remove stains from all of the following:
