Benefits of Carpet Cleaning
The first and most obvious benefit of cleaning your carpets is that it has an immediate positive impact on how they look. Dirty carpets are not good to look at and can detract from the look of even the finest houses. Using our multi-stage carpet cleaning process will instantly improve the look of even the dirtiest of carpets.
In addition to improving the look of your carpets we also believe that carpets need to be cleaned regularly for hygienic reasons. Were you aware that carpets can hold up to 4 times their weight in dirt. Even at lower levels than that dirty carpets can have a negative impact on the home environment and the health of your family.
Within the depths of the fibres of your carpet you’ll find dust mites, pet hair,dead skin cells, dust, insects, insect feaces, insect husks, bacteria, mold, volatile organic compounds and muchmore.
A recent study of London households found that
- 90% of people admit to spilling food on the carpet and eating it. If your carpets are dirty, just think about what you are actually putting into your stomach. Forget that five-second rule. Bacteria can live for up to four weeks in carpeting, and if there is any in yours, which there likely is, that bacteria is going to get on your food.
- 75% of people admit to walking about the carpets in their house with outdoor shoes on. This can lead to all manner of things being brought into your home from the street and trodden in to the carpet. Vacuuming alone will not always rid your carpets of that level of bacteria.
- 70% of people admit to moving furniture around to cover stains in their carpets rather than clean the stains. Spills should be cleaned immediately, to prevent stains from forming. If there are stains, stop moving your furniture around and call a professional carpet cleaning service to get rid of them.
Professional Carpet Cleaning will remove all the above nasty allergens, which trigger a response in those with allergies and respiratory problems, Carpets act like a large filter within your household. When this filter is full it stops trapping as many of these allergens as it should and they become airborne. Think how dusty homes with no carpets become. It’s a never ending problem for houses which ditch carpets in favour of hard floors. Dust, in all its forms, often swirls around the room. House dust is cited as the number one cause of allergies, and just 0.000001g of an allergen can trigger a response.
Professional Carpet Steam Cleaning or Vacuuming?
Many people believe that vacuuming their carpets is sufficient to keep a clean and healthy home. It is believed that 4 out of 10 people have never had their carpets cleaned. The benefits of having your carpets professionally steam cleaned is that it gives the carpet the deepest possible clean. This process, which uses hot water, flushes out all the dust, dirt and grime that gets deep into your carpet. By removing these from your carpet you improve the quality of your home environment. Your carpets will be able to continue to act as that giant filter which helps keeps your home healthy and clean.
How often should I Clean my Carpets?
The Carpet Institute of Australia recommends having your carpets professionally cleaned every 12-18 months; however, they will need doing more often (every 6 – 12 months) if you have kids, pets or allergies. Please note that it is advisable to use the services of a professional carpet cleaner to deal with spillages and stains. The sooner a spillage is dealt with the less chance that you will do long term damage to your carpet.
