It’s that time of year – carpet cleaning time. But should you opt for a freshening up of the fibers under your family’s feet before the holidays or after all the revelry has died down? There are arguments for both to get clean carpets.
We are creatures of habit. Whether you and your family take your shoes off before walking on the carpet or not, there are certain areas of your carpet that get more use than others. And walking paths are unlikely to change once a habit has been formed. People take the same path from living room to kitchen. They walk on the same section of the stairs. High-traffic carpet areas can quickly become dingy, dark, and worn. It helps to know how to cope with the inevitable dirt in between professional carpet cleanings.
No matter the season of the year, you may find yourself standing outside your home or business looking at the façade and wondering how you can possibly improve as much of it as possible while staying on a budget. Wear and tear to a building is natural, no matter what materials the structure is made of. Weather, insects, birds, rodents, dirt, pollen – any and all of these factors can influence the appearance of your home, and make it look dingy and dirty. Power washing is the fastest solution for outdoor maintenance, and it can tackle a wide variety of surfaces for deep-down cleaning.
Feeling ambitious about cleaning your own carpets? This surge of enthusiasm can translate into an undertaking that is far too big for you to manage properly on your own. Sure, there are carpet cleaning machines for rent at some grocery stores and home improvement stores. The fact that these machines are available encourages the do-it-yourself mentality. But carpet cleaning is one DIY adventure that could go very wrong during or after the fact.
Vacuuming the carpet may seem like the worst chore possible when you suffer from severe allergies. Carpet, however, has actually been proven to be one of the healthiest filters for keeping allergens out of the air. And keeping your carpet vacuumed and having the carpet professionally cleaned regularly can support your efforts to create an allergy-free living area.
Carpets take a great deal of abuse, and there is really no way to avoid it. Spots and stains sometimes seem to appear out of nowhere. Then there are the general household spills that occur and are not properly or immediately tended to, leaving seemingly immovable stains behind. A professional carpet cleaning can actually eliminate these pesky carpet stains.
Babies spend a lot of time on the carpet. Beginning with the all-important tummy time, for the next several years of his life your child will lie, roll, crawl, fall, and play on your carpet every day. He will rub his face in the carpet fibers and dig his fingers into the plushness. Can you rest easily knowing your child is being directly exposed to dirt, mold, bacteria, pet dander, and other carpet lurkers?
Carpet cleaning for pet Owners is essential. Pets are cherished. Your furry friends and cuddly animals are members of the family. But they are also living, breathing beings without the common sense of humans or the ability to compartmentalize their grooming and personal needs. As a result, your carpet will inevitably be affected by the presence of your pet in your home. This isn’t a bad thing, as long as you maintain regular carpet cleaning to preserve the health of your home’s inhabitants, both four-legged and human.
Carpet stains can really be awful. Maybe infrequent visitors to your home or the least-observant members of your family never see the spots you see on your carpet. But you’re not crazy. The stains really are there. And there are plenty of reasons why the stains could be present. Perhaps someone cleaned a stain improperly and made it worse. Maybe you didn’t see the stain right away and only discovered it days later after it had time to set in. And there is the possibility that when the stain happened you weren’t in a position to clean it immediately – in the middle of a party or while tending to a sick child, for example – and timeliness can make all the difference in a stain disappearing or sticking around forever.
