To us, the benefits of professional carpet cleaning are obvious. But then they should be. It's what we do. The important thing is that you know what those benefits are, and that you can make use of them when needed.
We want to share some of our most important reasons with you now. Hopefully, they will give you a little insight into just how beneficial a professional carpet cleaning is to you and your home.
Complete Removal of ContaminantsIt's a good idea to vacuum your carpet regularly. In fact, it can increase the overall lifespan of your carpet by several years. The dirt and debris that can accumulate can be very abusive to your carpet fibers, breaking them down over time. This causes the wear and tear to show much quicker than without vacuuming.
A professional carpet cleaning, however, can completely remove all the dirt, debris, contaminants, allergens and more from your floors. Not only will this make your floors look much cleaner, it can also keep many disturbing odors at bay. If you have an odd smell in your home, that you otherwise can't seem to get rid of, there's a good chance it's something deeply rooted in your carpet. And we can help get rid of it.
No DIY MistakesIf you choose to clean your own carpets, it's likely that you will make some of the most common mistakes. The fact is, without the everyday experience our professional cleaners have, it can sometimes be hard to do it exactly right.
One of the most common mistakes is moving your furniture back onto wet carpet, before it has completely dried. While this isn't always a huge mistake, it can cause big problems, especially if your furniture has wooden or metal legs. If so, the dampness can leach the stain or dye out of the wood legs into your carpet, creating an awful stain that is hard, and sometimes impossible, to remove. In the case of metal legs, the result can be a rust spot.
It can also be hard to know whether or not you've removed enough of the water during the rinse and vacuum afterwards. This is a problem that can not only cause a foul odor once the carpet has dried, it can also lead to unsafe health conditions as well. A warm, damp area is the perfect place for mold and mildew to grow.
When an overabundance of dampness is left down in the carpet, it's likely that this will be the end result. On the other hand, even if mold and mildew don't become a problem, the wet carpet can quickly become sour and create an awful smell.
A Word About DIY Carpet Cleaning...It's true that you can rent your own carpet cleaning machine from many grocery and department stores. However, considering the factors above, we ask you to consider whether it's worth it. Especially if you have small children that play on the floor a lot, it's certainly worth reconsidering.
