Many people use a professional carpet cleaner service but if you’ve never done it before, it’s normal to ask yourself whether it is right for you. The reality is that it is an effective solution for all types of carpet and for all families and not only those with kids and/or allergy sufferers. Find out more about this option and how to take advantage of it.
What Makes a Carpet Cleaner Stand Out?
This machine doesn’t wash the carpet or vacuum it. It forces steam into the pile at a sufficiently high pressure to cause dirt and dust particles to get detached from the fibres. Because the steam has very high temperature, it also kills any micro-organisms inside the carpet including fungi, bacteria and dust mites. The dust, dirt, pollen and any remaining micro-organisms are extracted with vacuum.
After the cleaning, the carpet’s fibres will be fluffy and perky like when it was first installed. The colours will be more vivid. More importantly, your home will have better indoor air quality and will be a healthier place to live overall.
It is worth noting that the drying time is extremely short. This enables you to start using the carpet like before on the very same day. This is highly convenient, especially for families living in small homes and those who have children and pets that cannot be restrained.
The Optimal Frequency
You must vacuum your carpet at least once a week, making overlapping passes in the direction of the pile. It’s worth using a model with a filter that can collect even the tiniest of particles and micro-organisms like pollen and fungus spores, especially if you have an allergy sufferer in your family. It may go without saying, but to keep the results for longer, you should not let people walk on the carpet while wearing their outdoor shoes.
How often to use a carpet cleaner service depends on your individual needs. Most households use it once or twice a year. You can readily use this service during the pollinating season in the spring and/or in the autumn. If you need to create a healthier environment for a person or people who have an allergy and/or asthma, you can take advantage of steam cleaning more often. In case someone in your family has just been diagnosed with one of these conditions or any other chronic respiratory disease, it is best to have the carpet cleaned right away.
Dealing with Stains
A carpet cleaner can remove many of the stains which are found on the typical carpet at home. These include most food and drink stains. Any solid and colouring particles are released from the fibres and extracted. Some more specific stains like the ones left by pets and by chemical compounds like swimming pool chemicals usually require special treatment. A professional cleaning company will have the experts, materials and tools to deal with these issues. You can expect complete stain and odour removal.
Over all, with a carpet cleaner service you can keep your home not only cosy but also create a healthy living environment for those that you care for the most.
