Member Guest Blog: Spring Clean Your Carpets!

By Theresa Bandru

Did you know that having your carpets cleaned by a professional cleaning company can increase the longevity of your carpet as well as improve the health of your home or office’s indoor environment?

It is a proven fact that having your carpet cleaned by a professional company on a preventative maintenance schedule can help you keep your carpets looking fresh for many years. A professional cleaning can also help remove particles and buildup that have been pushed deep into the carpeting from daily wear. It is important to realize that your carpets can collect dust mites, foreign particles, dirt, germs, and many other harmful items coming from the air, your pets, your shoes, your children and a variety of other different sources. Professionally cleaning your carpeting every six months to a year will help you improve and maintain a quality environment within your home or office.

There are many other benefits that a professional carpet cleaning has for your carpet’s lifespan. There are currently so many different products on the market that it can be hard to know if any of them are harming your carpeting. Certain types of carpeting take differently to some cleaners based upon their alkaline levels and the different chemical components used to create the product. Certain cleaners may not only decrease the lifespan of your carpeting, but they can also increase the rate at which your carpet begins to fade and lose its color. Also, the amount of detergent or cleaning product used by homeowners can leave residuals in the carpeting that even vacuuming on a regular basis may not remove.

So, as spring cleaning season approaches, make sure you add “get the carpets professionally cleaned” to your list!
