You can vacuum all you want, but that only picks up the surface dirt on your carpets. You may not notice it because it happens gradually, but even the finest carpet will look dull or discolored. Try moving a piece of furniture. Notice how much better the carpet underneath looks?
That’s a sign that a deep cleaning is needed. Without a deep clean, dirt and dust can settle in. Think how often you walk in our carpet in your shoes or barefoot. Sweat and grime can get absorbed. Pet dander and other allergens settle in. Pollen and even dust mites can gather.
If you find yourself sneezing more often, it just might be your carpet that is responsible.
Pets and Carpet
Pets shed hair and dander and body oils that sink into the carpet, not to mention the occasional accident. Children makes messes and there’s only so much you can do about it.
It’s recommended that you get your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year, and more often if you have kids or pets. If children are at the crawling stage, you’ll want to clean more often to keep them healthier.
Even if you think your carpets are clean, you will be amazed by what a deep clean will pick up and make your carpets look like new.
Does your house smell bad? When you run the vacuum over the carpet does it smell weird? It might be a sign that it’s time to do a deep clean.
If it’s got a mildew or moldy smell, it may be the sign of a bigger issue like water damage. Once mold takes hold, it won’t go away until you get it professionally cleaned.
Professional cleaners can work with stubborn stains that don’t come up with soap and water and make sure to eliminate lingering odors.
Unless your carpet is very old, or there’s been an unusual amount of wear-and-tear, a deep cleaning can bring your carpet back to life. If the high-traffic areas look a little worn or dull compared to the rest of the carpet, get it cleaned before you think about replacing it.
It’s not just to make it look nicer and feel better under your feet, regular professional cleaning can extend the life of your carpet.
