Why you should I have my carpets professionaly cleaned

Carpet cleaning

Let's face it; it's tough to get excited about the need to clean your carpets. It's time consuming, and unless there's some kind of stain or odor coming from your carpet, it's easy to forget about it entirely!

Vacuuming is a good start, and will keep your place feeling fresh and clean, but vacuum cleaners can only remove surface dirt and will not remove the soil film that builds up on your carpet over time due to traffic. In addition to frequent vacuuming, its important to deep clean your carpet.

Deep carpet cleaning systems will remove the oily, sticky soil that vacuums can't take out, and will help keep your carpet looking great over time. If carpet is cleaned before it becomes too unsightly, the cleaning chore will be easier and more successful. Carpet in a typical household should be cleaned every 12 to 18 months, depending on the number of residents and amount of activity.

Deep cleaning processes target the soils that result from cooking vapors, air pollution, and tracked-in dirt. The particles of oily soil deposited on carpet fibers can cause gradual but significant dulling of colors. The color isn't lost, but is hidden under the film. If this type of soil is allowed to accumulate, it begins to attract and hold the dry soil.

Choosing the proper cleaning process is important. Some systems may leave residues which accelerate re-soiling and defeats the whole purpose of cleaning. Others may leave your carpet overly damp or not employ the correct cleaning solutions to leave your carpet truly clean.

Hiring a professional carpet cleaner can be a great investment for your floor. Professional cleaning equipment has more extraction power than the rental units available to individuals, and the carpet should dry more quickly. Certified professionals also understand the equipment, know the proper cleaning agents for the situation at hand, and recognize the differences in fibers and carpet construction. Professionals usually employ the hot water extractioncleaning process.

Studies have shown that the hot water extraction cleaning process is the most thorough process on the market. This system is commonly referred to as "steam cleaning," although no steam is actually generated. The process consists of applying a cleaning agent into the carpet pile and using water in the extractor to recover the used solution and soil. This can be done from a truck-mounted unit outside the home with only the hose and wand brought inside or by a portable system brought into the home.

Regular professional cleaning using a Clean Trust Certified Firm (Formerly IICRC) is as important to your carpet as having a trained mechanic perform routine tune-ups on your car. While your carpet may appear clean on the surface, periodic cleaning by a certified technician can remove what you can't see and help your carpet retain its fresh, beautiful appearance.

The Clean Trust provides a consumer referral service to locate trained and certified cleaning and restoration firms and technicians. Before hiring anyone: confirm that they are trained and certified in the type of work to be performed and ask for credentials; informally interview the company representative or technician; obtain a written estimate of the work to be completed, and receive a written contract or invoice confirming the total price along with any statements or guarantees.
