Almost time to get the carpets cleaned? Many homes have a lot of carpet area that needs to be deep cleaned every once or twice a year. Vacuuming is only used to maintain the carpet and remove the dust on the surface level. It cannot help in deep cleaning.
Carpet cleaning should be done every spring but a lot of times the homeowners skip it for years because it looks clean. Just because it looks clean doesn’t mean it is. There are a lot of microscopic contaminants in a carpet degrading the house’s hygiene. And many times, just to save some money, we try to deep clean the carpets ourselves. But is it a good idea?
Reasons to go for professional carpet cleaning
On an average, carpets need to be deep cleaned every six months and if not maintained properly, they may lose their colour and look and get deep set stains. Most people know how to clean their carpets. However, just knowing is not enough.
Professional carpet cleaners have better equipment
Although you can rent the carpet cleaning equipment and clean it yourself, it is still not very efficient. If your idea of renting is to save money on hiring professionals, you may want to rethink. It’s not just about rent but also the extra effort of carrying it and then doing it all by yourself only to not get satisfactory results. Professional cleaners have more powerful equipment to deep clean the carpet and remove even the toughest of stains leaving your carpet look as good as new.
Minimum risk of damaging the carpet
Even though you theoretically know how to use the equipment and clean the carpet, sometimes while doing it yourself, you might end up causing damage to the carpet. Or sometimes it may end up getting too wet and not dry properly after that leaving a damp smell. The professionals know what they’re doing and how the carpet exactly needs to be cleaned. They know how to remove different types of stains and they have proper equipment that helps in quick drying of the carpet as well.
Remove the dust mites and prevent mold growth
Dust mites are microscopic and may get skipped while cleaning the carpet by yourself. Dust mites and trapped mold degrade the hygiene at home and can also cause various kinds of allergies. The mites can even cause other health problems to people already having certain allergies. Professional carpet cleaning removes all these agents that can harm your health that are not visible to the eyes, and leaves your carpet fresh and clean.
Improve the air quality
If the carpet gets too dirty and accumulates a lot of mites and other contaminants, it could lead to breathing problems and make it even more difficult for people with asthma and other respiratory problems. Professional deep cleaning removes all these contaminants improving the indoor air quality by making it safer and cleaner.
While cleaning the carpet by yourself can serve as temporary cleaning, it is important to get it done by a professional cleaning service at least once or twice a year.
