Why You Want to Have your Carpets Professionally Cleaned Before the Holidays
The holidays are coming up! You are planning to have guests come over to celebrate with you. What an exciting time. However, one thing that you are worried about other than how you are going to possibly manage to keep your guests happy is how clean your home looks.
Sure, you can hire a cleaning service to scrub your kitchen, bathroom, and do a thorough vacuum throughout your carpeted areas in your home. That can be helpful. However, if you really want to make sure your home is spotless, you are going to want to hire a professional carpet cleaner to steam clean your carpets.
Vacuuming only helps to a degree, and it is a good idea to clean the surface of your carpets several times a week so the dirt on your carpeting gets sucked up. And whenever spills do happen, you will want to take action right away and blot it up so it doesn’t settle into the carpet fibers and become a stain. But keep in mind, vacuuming only can only do so much when it comes to cleaning your carpet.
Vacuuming will not help when it comes to cleaning up the dirt that has settled into your carpet fibers. And even if you think you are keeping your carpet clean by not allowing your kids or anyone to bring food into carpeted areas, and you have a strict ‘no shoes indoor’ policy- your carpet is not clean!
You still have pollutants that are tracked in from outdoors even if no one is walking on your carpets with their shoes on. Just opening and closing the doors from your home will bring chemicals, dirt and other bacteria into your home, and it will then settle inside of your carpet. Cooking from the kitchen can pollute your carpets due to oils settling into the fibers. When you flush the toilet as well, bacteria flies into the air and again, will fall right onto the floor and you can imagine what happens when- you guessed it! Bacteria from the bathroom while doing your business will settle into the fibers too. Eww, right?
Unfortunately, your vacuumed carpet is never going to be truly clean because you have a cesspool of bacteria, dirt, fungi, dust and dust mites and chemicals inside your carpet. You can’t see it but you certainly will be able to know by the fact that your home just doesn’t feel completely clean even after it has been cleaned! And if your allergies are worsening, or have been having respiratory problems then it can certainly be traced to the dirt in your carpet!
Now that you are aware of this, the only way you can truly have a clean home for the holidays is if you hire a professional carpet cleaning company to steam clean your carpets! In fact, it is recommended to have this done at least once a year, or 2 years at most in order to prolong the life of your carpet. Not to mention, carpet manufacturers require you to professionally clean your carpet every 1-2 years in order to keep the warranty. If you have little children or pets, it is best to have your carpets professionally cleaned every 6 months.
But if you are due to have your carpet professionally cleaned before the holidays, you must get that arranged so you not only have a clean home, but you won’t have to worry about your guests thinking your home is dirty! Happy holidays!
