Sometimes we don’t give our carpet enough thought. We vacuum constantly and keep things clean but they just don’t seem to have the life they used to. Over time small stains show and they feel more coarse. You should know that the tools you are using are good for maintenance, your carpets need a deep cleaning with some heavy duty tools. Your carpets are like your teeth, consistent brushing and flossing is great, but you should still have a check up with a dentist once in a while. Whether you like to handle everything yourself or you can’t seem to find enough time, you should consider a professional carpet cleaning on your carpets.
The Benefits of a Professional Carpet Cleaning
Carpet fibers trap dust particles, allergens, and bacteria. This is great for the air in the room, as all the particles are in the floor, but they can build up and get buried deep down in the carpet. When these particles build up and are not removed, impact (from stomping feet) on the carpets will cause the excess to release in the air, this can cause sinus, lung, and eye irritations (especially in young children). Professional carpet cleaning tools are much better at removing these particles than your home cleaning appliances, cleaning deep into the carpets fibers.
Another big problem in carpets are dust mites, and a lot of homeowners that have dust mites in their carpets are completely unaware. Dust mites are annoying pests that can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions, even worse symptoms for young children. Dust mites can even cause people that suffer from eczema to have outbreaks on their skin. The tools professional carpet cleaners use can eradicate dust mites from your carpets, and deep clean them to prevent another infestation.
Mold is another problem to worry about in your carpets. Humid areas are the most susceptible, especially ones that are close to water sources (like the beach houses in San Diego). Water can be brought in from outside on feet and dampen carpets, and you may think that it will just dry up and be fine. What you need to consider is not just the water drying up, but what else was in those damp footprints (bacteria) and what can grow out of it (mold). Mold can start growing deep in your carpet and it needs to be removed or it can spread under the carpet. Most common household cleaning devices can not fully remove the mold from your carpets
After seeing things everyday, we don’t always notice the gradual changes, or in this case, the decline of our carpets. We also don’t notice some smells building up, until one day it really hits when you enter the room. The biggest notice in both smell and appearance is after you have your carpets cleaned by a professional service. A lot of time we have had customers not realize how dirty their carpets had gotten until we gave it a full deep cleaning. In some cases they barely recognize the carpets!
What to Know about a Professional Carpet Cleaning
So you’ve decided to get a professional to come clean your carpets. Great! But what now? What can you do to prepare for them? What can you do to make sure this is a great cleaning?
Dust and clean around surfaces and areas in the room. This is an important step, because after you have your carpets cleaned you want to keep them in top shape for as long as possible. You don’t want the dust from desks, shelves, and other surfaces falling down onto your sparkling carpets.
Remove any fragile items. Accidents happen and you don’t want them to happen to your fragile items during a professional clean!
Ask your professional service what you can do to prepare the room. Communication is important in everyday life, and is just as important when getting your carpets cleaned! Also ask what tools they are using and what you can do to accommodate those tools. Some services need a parking spot close to the house to run a van/truck-mounted equipment.
