The Truth about WHY to Professionally Carpet Clean

Extend the Life of Your Carpet Investment

When you buy a house or purchase new carpet, it should be a priority to maintain the cleanliness that comes along with your new investment.  Naturally, there will be spills and dust will accumulate.  It is advised by most carpet showrooms to have your carpet professionally cleaned at least one time per year.  One main reason is that dirt and grime wears and tears at the individual fibers that make up the chosen fibers.  Over time if the carpet is not properly cared for with professional cleaning there is the potential for “wear patterns” to start to appear.  The end result if no action is taken is another carpet replacement job.  Another reason to consider the annual carpet cleaning is that more and more often manufacturers actually require professional carpet care to maintain the warranty.  Make sure that you fully understand the ins and outs of the warranty when you purchase the new carpet.


Improve the Health of Your Family

It has been stated that 90% of dust in a home is human skin that has been shed.  That right there should be enough to make everyone pull out the ol’ vacuum cleaner and get to work.  It is recommended that you vacuum your carpet three times a week to prevent a build up.   In addition to human skin, if your carpet is not properly cared for with professional cleaning, you are creating a potential feeding frenzy for dust mites, bed bugs and various other unwanted, uninvited houseguests.  Overall, by maintaining clean carpet you can alleviate many breathing hardships that can be associated with excessive amounts of dust and dirt.  The potential for respiratory medical problems are decreased with the proper carpet cleaning and maintenance.


Keep Your House Sanitized

Along with the benefits of improving your overall health, by steam cleaning your carpets you are also sanitizing the fibers.  We have discussed dust, dust mites, bed bugs and other creatures that feed off dirt and grime, but we would like to take a moment and bring up mold.  Mold and mildew growth is inevitable due to weather patterns such as rain and humidity.  Unconsciously, when you step on your carpet with wet or moist feet you are creating an environment for mold and mildew growth.  By steam cleaning your carpets at least once a year this helps remove mold and mildew and sanitize the area.


Improve the Appearance of Your Carpet

The most obvious reason for cleaning your carpet by steam cleaning at least once a year is to improve the appearance.  While you will benefit from all of the above-mentioned categories, when you have your carpet professionally cleaned you are automatically making your flooring more visually appealing.  We have all dealt with the daily spills and mishaps and a professional service will be able to eliminate all evidence of such events.
