The minute brand new carpet is put on your floors, it becomes a job to ensure they are clean. This is because people track dirt on their shoes and their feet, even if you habitually wipe your feet before stepping on carpet, which no one ever does. This leads to carpets with dirt that is down deep inside of the carpet fibers. Cleaning them is a chore that most of us want to avoid and vacuuming only gets the surface. It cannot get down deep where the allergens are going to hide. That is why so many people choose a carpet cleaning service so that they can enjoy their carpets again. Is that the right choice for you?
Carpet cleaning, if done properly, is not an easy task. It involves moving furniture around and slowly moving the cleaner back and forth over the carpet. It involves knowing the best type of cleaner and the best type of soap for your carpets. It includes spot treating and how to get that stain up. In short, it is a major headache for most people and even if you get it done, you still may not be happy with the results.
If you hire a carpet cleaning service, you ensure that your carpets get as clean as they possibly can. You may still have to remove the furniture, but all of the other hard work is left up to that person. They will be able to look at the stains on your carpet and figure out what they need to do to ensure the stain is gone. They will have an understanding of what direction the carpet fibers run so that they can pull the steam cleaner against it and take the stain away. They will know what type of soap and pretreatments to use on your carpet to kill allergens and eliminate the dirt that is ground into the carpet.
Carpet cleaning is a lot different from vacuuming. Vacuuming doesn’t take a lot of time and carpet cleaning does. Carpet cleaning is not a process that can be rushed and if you don’t know what you are doing, you may still have a carpet that is half clean. By hiring someone to do the dirty work for you, you can enjoy taking off your shoes and walking on cleaner carpet. Who wouldn’t enjoy that feeling?
