The Benefits of Carpet Cleaning
Posted in Carpet cleaning
There are almost no homes without carpets, and that’s because carpets are more welcoming and comfortable than any other type of flooring. Homes with children and pets almost exclusively have carpeting in the main family rooms, and while they feel great when they’re clean, the demands of family life can be exhausting for carpeting. Professional carpet cleaning provides your home with a wide range of benefits that the whole family can enjoy.
There is a notion that professional carpet cleaning uses damaging chemicals, but this isn’t the case. Modern carpet cleaning methods, namely hot water extraction, uses water heated to more than 200 degrees Fahrenheit to remove dirt and particles and clean the carpets. The pressurized water loosens stains, dirt and other contaminants, which is all removed through the industrial vacuuming equipment. Hot water extraction is also completely soap free, safe for all carpets and, most importantly, is safe for kids, pets and the environment. There is no residue left behind and your carpets will feel healthy and clean.
A big benefit to professional carpet cleaning is that it can actively reduce the allergens in your carpets. Much like a filter, carpeting attracts all the dust and particles in the home, holding them deep within the threads. Vacuuming can remove some of them, but others are merely brought to the surface of the carpet and not removed. This can trigger allergy attacks or worse. Professional Carpet Cleaning removes all particles from the base of your carpets to the top and is the cleanest your carpets can be. You won’t worry about letting your kids or pets get close to the carpets.
Removing all of the microscopic dust particles, pet hair, dander and dirt from your carpeting will also extend its lifespan. Those particles can rub against the fibers and wear them down, causing permanent damage that cannot be fixed. This eventually causes visible wear and roughens the carpet until it needs to be replaced. Professional carpet cleaning removes these particles, eliminating the risk of them wearing down the fibers of your carpet, and extends the lifespan of the carpeting. Stains will also cause irreversible damage, and professional stain removers can remove the stain and protect the carpet fibers.
The hot water extraction methods used by the best professional carpet cleaning companies almost eliminates the drying period. Because all of the water used to clean the carpets is completely removed, it takes about one hour for the carpet to fully dry. This means that furniture can be placed back on the carpet that same afternoon and families can enjoy the fresh feeling of clean carpets almost immediately. If carpets are cleaned in the late morning, they’ll be ready for action when the kids are done with school. This also means there’s no risk of mold or mildew from damp carpets or leftover water.
