Professional carpet cleaning is often viewed as a luxury service only used on special occasions. Industry leaders and manufacturers recommend that the carpets undergo a professional cleaning at least once a year in residential applications and more often if there is excessive foot traffic, occupants that are plagued with asthma and allergy issues. Professional carpet cleaning should be incorporated in a homeowner’s regular maintenance. In addition to routine carpet care, professional cleaning can preserve the health, condition and longevity of the carpet. Today, we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to share the common substances removed during the professional carpet cleaning process.
Dirt, Dust & Soil on Carpet
Dust and dirt are a very natural element that is constantly being exposed to homes and carpets especially. Carpets are a filter-like element in the house and dirt and dust absorb into the carpet fibers. Though vacuuming daily can certainly minimize the volume of soil that gets trapped beneath the surface over time, the buildup of soil needs to be removed. Dirt and particles are abrasive, everyday foot-traffic creates friction, leading to a sandpaper-like effect that accelerates the deterioration of the carpet from the bottom up. Compacted soil also harbors allergens, contaminates, and pests. Controlling the dirt and dust keeps the carpets from looking dull and dingy as well.
Dust Mites, Allergens & Contaminants on Carpet
Dust is not the only allergen that is retained in carpets. Pollen, mold spores, dust mites, and other such allergens accumulate in the carpet. Like with soil, vacuuming can significantly reduce the accumulation, but eventually, the allergen buildup can assault the respiratory leading to more and more asthma attacks and allergy systems. Contaminants such as germs, bacteria, and microbes can have a health effect on the family through exposure to carpet. These invisible assailants can reduce the indoor air quality and contribute to spreading colds, flus, and other ailments.
Carpet Spots & Stains
Spots and stains that riddle the carpets are more than an eyesore. Despite having an otherwise immaculately clean room, the stains and spots on the carpets can bring down the appeal of the room and mar the overall presentation. Professional carpet cleaning is strong enough on stains and spots to lift them from the fibers but safe on the environment to protect pets and children. The light and dark food and drink residues, sticky and slimy textures, pet accidents, chemical films, and other such blemishes are easily remedied with professional carpet cleaning.
Pests on Carpet
There are tiny pests often taking refuge in the carpets in addition to the dust mites. Bed bugs, ticks, fleas, carpet beetles, and other such pests are eliminated during the carpet cleaning process.
Odors are typically caused from the substances that fester in the carpet fibers. The molecules produce cause the odors to continue to worsen. With professional carpet cleaning, the source is removed and with the effective products used, the odors are effectively neutralized.
