The Importance of Professional Carpet Maintenance
Have you ever thought about how much dirt accumulates in your carpet, even if you vacuum it on a regular basis? Vacuum cleaners don’t clean the carpet fibers as deeply as is needed to remove embedded dirt, as studies show vacuum cleaners only remove one third of the overall dirt in carpets. Without regular cleaning of your carpets, the dirt will become the perfect environment for toxins and bacteria to spread, potentially causing health issues for your family or employees.
It is recommended by specialists that you get your carpets cleaned at least once a year, to keep your carpets healthy and looking newer for longer. There are many benefits that come with cleaning your carpets, including:
- Maintain the appearance
A dirty carpet can completely ruin the look and atmosphere of a room, as often it is one of the first things you see when you walk into a room. Cleaning your carpet makes it look brand new, by cleansing all the excess dirt and massaging the carpet fibers back to its original fluffy state.
Most carpets are designed with dirt accumulation in mind, so often won’t look dirty visually, but it won’t look as brightly coloured as it did when first purchased and begin to have other issues.
- Keep it smelling fresh
There’s nothing worse than a stuffy, mouldy smell penetrating your room’s atmosphere. Along with the bacteria your carpet can collect, it will almost undoubtedly have remnants of spilled drinks and food settled into the carpet fibers. Furthermore, having pets means their hair will become embedded into the carpet and add to the smell over the months. Routine cleaning will maintain a fresh smell and intermittent steaming will refresh your carpet during times of especially heavy use.
- Health benefits
Carpets are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and toxins to spread and grow, so it’s important you keep on top of this issue with annual carpet cleaning. A build-up of bacteria can irritate asthma sufferers and those with eczema, making it an uncomfortable environment to live in. Vacuuming the carpets will exaggerate the issue as it will remove some dirt but will bring the rest to the surface, inflaming these health issues.
If you live in a home with children, then it is even more vital to keep your carpets clean as they most likely play with their toys on the floor, thereby contaminating their toys further with bacteria that could cause serious harm to their vulnerable immune systems.
