Carpet in our homes is often connected with appearance, style, good thermal and acoustic insulation and the nice cozy feeling. These are the reasons many people still prefer carpet in most areas before wooden floor. However, there is also a bad side having carpet in most areas in your home. Carpets are magnet for dirt. Carpet is comfortable place for dust mites, bacteria, mould and other hazardous organic compounds. In addition, carpets holds pet skin, human dead cells and hair. All of the above can lead to allergies, breathing problems or even more serious health problems.
Steam Power Excellence, based on many years’ experience, selected five of the top reasons why you should consider professional carpet cleaning on a regular basis:
- Improve the air quality and reduce health issues by eliminating bacteria, mites and allergens
As mention above, carpet is home for a lot of bacteria’s, dust mites, dirt and human skin and hair. Regular carpet cleaning can reduce all of them and significantly improve the air quality and health risks for you and your family. Professional carpet cleaning is highly recommended especially when you have small kids and pets, as they like to play and crawl on the carpet regularly.
- Extends the life of your carpet
Main reason for carpet wearing and forming of “traffic line” is the poor maintenance of the carpet. Once the dirt stick to the carpet fibre, it makes it stiff and vulnerable. Dragging your feet on dirty carpet speeds up the natural wearing significantly.
- Makes your carpet easier to maintain
Regular cleaning removes the excessive dirt and leaves the fibres clean and soft. Carpet is not smear and fibres are not laying down which makes the regular hoovering easier and more effective.
- Removes tough stains and improve appearance
Regular cleaning targets tough stains. Even if it is looking impossible, professional cleaning is specially designed to remove some of the toughest stains by selecting the most appropriate chemicals and best equipment on the market.
- Saves you money and maintain carpet warranty
By cleaning your carpet on a regular basis, you do not have to worry about re-carpeting for longer. Together with that, most carpet companies recommend annual professional cleaning as a requirement for the warranty agreement of the carpet.
