6 Reasons to Have Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned
Your carpets used to look fresh and clean, but with time it has become flattened, stained, and odorized. While vacuuming and spot treating work for a time, these cleaning techniques cannot deep clean the carpet. This is why it is important to get your carpets professionally cleaned annually.
1. Dust Mites, Bed Bugs, Fleas
Although you cannot see them, microscopic bugs reside in your carpet overtime. Pets bring fleas and bed bugs, and our clothing can bring in these small creatures from our clothing when we come in from outdoors. A single ounce of dust on carpet fibers can account for up to 15,000 dust mites, and one dust mite can produce about 100 eggs. Bed Bugs love warm areas, typically the bedroom or other sleeps areas. Although these bugs do not infect humans, they can bite. Professional carpet cleaning can help eliminate the existence of these pests.
2. Tough Set-in Stains
Red wine, grease, ink, pet urine, even tanning lotion and oils; professional cleaning can remove the toughest stains while leaving your carpet looking fresh and new again. No more elbow grease needed! Our cleaning equipment will extract dirt and stains from each carpet fiber with ease, with no residue left behind, leaving each fiber free of contaminants and safe for each member of your family to enjoy.
3. Extended Carpet Life
As previously mentioned, our professional cleaning can add three to five extra years to your carpet. Over time allergens, dirt and debris will adhere to your carpet fibers, prematurely wearing them down. A professional cleaning will deeply sanitize these fibers and contribute to the longevity of your carpet and protect your flooring investment.
4. Eliminate Tough Odors
We can easily get used to some odors in our home overtime. Carpets collect odors from dirt, debris, shoes, pets and more. The carpet fibers trap airborne pollutants and can contribute to household allergies and poor indoor air quality. Household pets, or even unwanted pests such as mice, can leave behind fecal or urine on our carpets that can adhere to the fibers microscopically even after a surface cleaning. The odors from these contaminants are some of the toughest to remove. Our professional cleaning equipment is designed to remove the toughest odors from your flooring.
5. Health Benefits
The bacteria, allergens, and dirt caught in your carpet can contribute to numerous health problems, especially in children and infants who find themselves on the floor more often than adults. Asthma, environmental allergies, sinus issues, skin irritants and more can all be connected to soiled carpets. Although a freshly vacuumed floor may look clean, the deep dirt and bacteria living on the fibers can only be eliminated through professional grade cleaning equipment.
6. Enhances Room Appearance
The appearance and value of our homes matter. When a professional cleaning is completed, carpets are fluffed, deodorized, deeply sanitized, and the overall appearance is enhanced. Carpet is the most used furnishing in a home, and quite often the most ignored for cleaning. Negligence in carpet care can result in traffic lane effects, or high traffic areas on your carpet being worn down more than others. A professional cleaning can reduce this effect and make your home look brand new again.
