Deep Clean Your Carpet

 

As Texans, we are all for working hard, rolling up your sleeves, getting dirty, and doing it yourself! But without the proper tools, some tasks, like deep cleaning carpets, are best left to carpet cleaning services. Most carpet manufacturers even recommend that a professional deep clean needs to happen at least every 12 – 18 months.

Here are a few reasons why.

  1. Stay Healthy
  2. Improve Air Quality
  3. Keep Warranties
  4. Longevity
  5. Improve the Overall Look and Feel
  6. Stay Healthy

If you ever spend time cleaning out a messy barn, garage, or shed, you will sneeze, a lot! In fact, thanks to allergies, you may even feel sick afterward.

Now, what does this have to do with carpet cleaning? Well, think of how many people are venturing through a dirty barn, shed, or garage. Not that many, and not that often and yet it still gets really dirty. Now think of your house (or office). Even if you live alone, you yourself are going in and out and lot!

I hate to break it to you, but your carpet is probably way dirtier than you think. It is like a petri dish. Mold, fungus, pet hair, dead skin, dust, dirt, and even bugs such as dust mites can all sink their way into the fibers of your carpet. Though you may not be rolling around on your carpet often (unless of course, you have children or grandchildren) every time you walk on it or even vacuum it, you stir up the particles causing them to become airborne.

That being said, if the carpet is not properly cleaned at least once every 12-18 months, it can cause some health problems such as:

  • Respiratory issues
  • Skin irritation (athletes foot, eczema, rashes, and itchy skin)
  • Allergies (red nose and itchy eyes)

Why Carpet Cleaning Services Matter

Improve Air Quality

Now, we mentioned this above when we talked about health, but since there is an entire industry devoted to air quality (ducts, air purifiers, humidifiers, and more), it needs to be said again. Every single time someone, or something (like a pet), walks on carpet, dust and grime will stir up. Once the particles make it into the air, you and your family will breathe it in. Thus, all carpet needs to be deep cleaned!

As an added bonus, having your carpets cleaned by a professional (who specializes in carpet cleaning services) will actually positively impact airflow. Which is great here in Texas, especially in the summer months while running the air conditioner.

Keep Warranties

A warranty is one of the benefits of purchasing carpets from a reputable company! But unlike our Texas 5-Point guarantee, carpet companies offer warranties with fine print. Most require that the carpet is professionally cleaned at least once every 12-18 months.

Here is a look from an actual warranty:
If you do this, note that many warranties require proof in the form of a receipt in conjunction with a cleaning log. So, in order to keep your warranty, make sure you have your carpet cleaned by a professional service at least every 12-18 months.

Longevity

Just like insurance, warranties are always great in case something happens, but no one honestly wants to use them! As we stated above, carpet is the perfect host for bacteria, fungus, bugs, dust, dirt, grease, and grime. As the dirt and grime sneak into the carpet, it will begin to tear at the fibers and eventually rip them apart. If you want to have your carpets last, it is critical that you have them professionally cleaned!

Improved Overall Look and Feel

Trust us, no one has ever said, “I just can not wait for my soft carpet to get scratchy and hard.” Regardless of how much padding is underneath your carpet, built-up dirt and dust will cause the fibers to mat and to become flat. Matted carpet will look warn and feel scratchy.

So, if you want your carpet to feel and look good, make sure to have your carpets cleaned by a professional cleaning company that specializes in carpet cleaning services.

Ultimately, no matter how often you vacuum your carpet, it is critical that you have it professionally cleaned, too! Call (210) 653-9699 to schedule your carpet cleaning.
