Have your carpets professionally cleaned is very eye appealing and is a warm welcome to you and your guests. However, there’s other benefits to having your carpets cleaned that goes well beyond that of a fresh look. Here’s a few:
Your carpet endures a lot, and gravity certainly works against carpets considering it’s what catches everything that falls. Carpets that are not frequently cleaned can contain pollutants such as pet dander, insects, allergens and every day dirt and dust. When walking on your carpets, especially in heavier traffic areas, these pollutants can be kicked up into the air, which can lead to you breathing in these pollutants. Frequent cleaning can prevent much of these pollutants in your home.
Very often, homes become infested by dust mites. Unfortunately, because of their microscopic size, dust mite infestations go undetected. Dust mites lay eggs, leave feces and body fragments, and can quickly spread throughout your carpets. These allergens can make their way into the air when disturbed, just as pollutants do. Frequent vacuuming can help with dust mites, but a professional cleaning, including a steam cleaning method, is best for killing any bacteria due to dust mites.
Mold and Mildew
Carpet, when not properly cleaned, can quickly become a breeding ground for mold and mildew, especially in areas with high moisture. Drying and vacuuming an area of carpet that encounters a spill or heavy moisture can help prevent mold and mildew growth. However, sometimes moisture goes undetected into your carpets. With a professional clean, areas that are susceptible to mold or mildew can be prevented.
Cleaning your carpets will leave them looking fresh and new. However, there’s great health benefits to having them professionally cleaned, and can ensure the longevity of your beautiful carpets.
