Get Rid of Dirt and Germs: 3 Things You Should Know about Keeping Carpets Clean
We’ve all been there: you’re hanging out at a friend’s house and notice that their carpet is dirty. You can’t help but think about how long it’s been since they had someone come to clean their carpets! It might seem like something that would never happen in your own home, but the truth is that dirt and germs accumulate on carpets over time, even if we don’t see them right away. Don’t let this happen to your family – read more for 3 things you should know about carpet cleaning!
As a homeowner, it’s important to have your carpets professionally cleaned every now and then. As you walk around on them with bare feet day after day, dirt gets ground into the fibers of the carpet – both visible particles that are easily seen as well as invisible ones that can’t be seen until they’re deep inside your carpeting. It’s important for your health to have these removed, as the accumulated dirt and germs can cause allergies or even illness.
First: Your vacuum only gets so deep! When you clean them yourself at home, it won’t be possible to reach deep into the fibers of the carpeting in order to bring up all that built-up icky stuff! Bringing in a hot-water extraction carpet cleaning company is how you get those deep down dirt particles!
Second, between professional cleanings be sure to give your carpets a good old fashioned vacuuming regularly. Doing so will also help you to get rid of the surface dirt and germs that have accumulated in between professional cleanings! That means a little less is getting drilled deep into your carpet.
Third, make sure you are following the instructions for care listed on your carpet! Some carpets can’t be steam cleaned. Others shouldn’t get wet at all. Each type of carpet has different care requirements in order to keep it looking good and lasting long without wearing out too quickly.
Remember that regular cleanings will help your home stay fresh and healthy for you and your family!
