Why Carpet Cleaning Is Good For You and Your Carpet
The typical carpet is loaded with allergens, bacteria, and carpet mites. And those are just the things you can’t see. Regular vacuuming helps to keep your carpet clean, but it’s not enough.
It’s important to have your carpets professionally cleaned whenever there is an accident to remove dirt and stains before they set within the carpet fibers and the padding. Many store-bought cleaners leave an oily residue that can make stains worse over time. Your carpets also need periodic cleaning to remove dust, fleas, mites, dead skin, pet fur, and dander.
How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?
Carpet manufacturers and The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommend that you have your carpets professionally cleaned at least two times a year or more depending on how much punishment your carpet receives from children, pets, dirt, stains, and foot traffic.
What is The Best Carpet Cleaning Method?
Carpet manufacturers and carpeting trade organizations, such as the Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), California Fabric Institute (CFI), and the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA), recommend the steam extraction method because it gets the deep down dirt that other methods leave behind.
How Does Steam Extraction Work?
The process involves injecting steam and specially formulated cleaning agents deep into carpet fibers, loosening dirt, pollutants and allergens. The cleaning agents that we use are biodegradable and non-toxic. They are safe to use around kids, the elderly, asthma and allergy sufferers, houseplants and pets.
