Here are 5 good reasons why you should have your carpet cleaned regularly by a professional
We are frequently asked, “how often should I have my carpets cleaned professionally and why?”. Well, in short at least twice a year, more often if you have pets and “why?” well there are numerous reasons from health benefits to bad smells. A professionally cleaned carpet no only looks great, it smells great and will be almost as clean as the day it was fitted.
1) Health Benefits – Removes Carpet Mites, Beetles, Bacteria and Mold
Carpets are a very attractive home for small creatures such as, carpet beetles, dust mites and other small insects. They are warm and dry so why wouldn’t such tiny beasties want to live in your carpet. Dust mites are a major source of allergens and are linked to sinus and nasal problems and even asthma. By simply walking around and vacuuming you are launching them back into the air to do their damage.
However, when your carpet is cleaned by a professional they will use high grade cleaning products and equipment specially designed to capture and remove bugs and odours.
2) Carpet Odours and Bad Smells
When left unchecked your carpet will gradually produce more and more bad odours. These will largely go unnoticed to you but your visitors will pick them up straight away, and most of them will be too polite to say anything. You know the way some homes have a certain smell when you walk through the door, well the residents are usually oblivious to this, including you when its your home.
If left to thrive those tiny bugs and mites gradually eat their way through your carpet and leave a trail of poo and bacteria behind them, you can’t see it but you will be able to smell it! Homeowners with pets will fair worse than their pet-free neighbours. Tiny droplets of urine and faeces will build up and exacerbate the carpet odour problem.
Fear not, professional carpet cleaning companies have patented formula cleaning products designed specifically for removing even the most embedded odours from your carpet, leaving it smelling super fresh and clean.
3) Aesthetic Appearance
If, like most people, you love the look of a nice clean carpet, then regular vacuuming at least once a week is a good way to maintain that look. This will remove all the loose bits of dust, crumbs and hair, and it will lift the fibres in the pile to create that ‘freshly vacuumed’ look. However over time you’ll start to see distortion in the pile which can make the carpet start looking old and worn. The solution to this is, yes you guessed it, a professional cleaning session where the fibres are thoroughly cleaned and left standing upright. Your carpet will look almost as good as new every time.
4) Extend the Lifespan of your Carpet and Save £££’s
As highlighted earlier, carpet mites will eat your carpet, unless they are removed by a professional. Its therefore important to get rid of them as often as possible to help prolong the lifespan of your carpet. Carpets are expensive items to replace so you want them to last as long as possible. A professional carpet cleaner will only use high quality commercial cleaning products therefore avoiding the risk of damage to your carpet, keeping it looking fab and smelling fresh for longer.
5) Prevention is best!
A professional carpet cleaning session can help prevent a multitude of problems, some of which can be quite serious. Many homeowners are not even aware of the microscopic creatures that can invade and take over their carpet. Many modern homes are simply infested with tiny bugs and homeowners are usually oblivious to this. Add to this moisture brought in from rain outside, which produces mould and damp, then you have bad situation. Have you ever wondered why you keep sneezing, itching of catching a cold or infection all the time? Well your carpet could be to blame for this. That’s why we recommend vacuuming at least 3 times a week and having your carpets cleaning professionally at least twice a year.
