Your carpets need cleaning every year
Getting your carpets professionally cleaned every year serves two main purposes: to lengthen the carpet’s longevity and to help with having a clean fresh environment. The precious investment made in purchasing the carpets are will be protected for the long run and the air you breathe will be free from odors and allergens when carpets are professionally cleaned.
The ultimate goal for getting carpets cleaned is to have them looking good and feeling good. Cleaning carpets is not an easy task, but often times a homeowner resorts to do cleaning on their own. The problem homeowners face is that not all carpets are made the same, and therefore not any one cleaning method is the answer for doing the job properly.
The most common cleaning method used today by the do it yourself homeowner is renting the ubiquitous steam/shampoo rotary machine from the tool rental place. Along with the rental, the shop will sell you the cleaning soap to go with the machine or you are left on your own to rely on your wits to pick the cleaning agent from your supermarket or hardware store.
Employing a one cleaning solution method for all carpet types is like playing Russian roulette. Damage to the carpet can occur, making the job a cleaning disaster from hell resulting in irreparable consequences. All good intentions set aside, it is sad to report; much damage has been done for going that route. The detrimental effects of not following manufacturer’s recommendations or professional advice are many.
To complicate things even further, choosing the correct cleaning method not only depends on the type of carpet but also the problem the carpet has. Using the wrong cleaning method can cause the carpets to become sticky, discolored, shrink or warp. Even worse, the dirt is not really extracted well, instead the dirt gets lodged deeper into the carpet traveling to the padding itself.
Having your carpets fresh with a clean scent takes not only hard work but require the use of green carpet cleaning methods. The cleaning agent used need to be green certified, eco friendly, that won’t affect the environment or become allergens to the homeowner or pets.
