Many homeowners pride themselves on a clean home. Having a clean house is paramount to maintaining it and keeping yourself and your family healthy. But normal household cleaning isn’t always enough to fully clean, especially when it comes to carpets. Vacuuming and spot cleaning can make your carpet appear clean. However, there’s more dirt in it than can be seen on the top layers. Only a professional carpet cleaning can ensure that your carpets are clean and your home is as healthy as it can be.
The fibers in your carpets contain many layers, each of which holds on tight to dirt, dust, and other pollutants. When you vacuum or spot clean, you’re removing the dirt only from the top layers. The bottom layers of your carpet are still host to germs and allergens that aren’t visible. Because the top layers are clean, you won’t notice if there’s anything underneath. The longer these bottom layers go without being cleaned, the more damage and disease they can cause. Uncleaned lower layers can also make the top layers accumulate dirt faster. Without professional cleaning, your carpets will need regular cleanings more often.
The longer your carpets go without professional cleaning, the more damage they can cause to themselves and other parts of your home. Each time you walk on your carpets, the fibers rub together. Clean fibers rub freely without harm, but if there’s dirt on them, the abrasive surfaces can wear the fibers down. Over time, this causes your carpets to become weak and visibly worn. Wet spills can also affect the flooring underneath your carpets. The moisture can erode the wooden floors or supports and can also cause mold to begin growing under your carpets.
Even if you purchase or rent a carpet cleaner, you still may not be getting your carpets fully clean. Professional cleaning companies have access to industry-standard equipment and training that you won’t be able to find in a store. Carpet cleaning technicians are trained and certified to ensure that your carpets are clean and healthy. They know how to look for any signs of damage and how to repair damage if it’s found. A professional carpet cleaner can also inspect the floors under your carpet for additional damages or concerns.
At Cardinal Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning, we use an ultraviolet light for inspections to reveal hidden urine stains. The minerals and phosphates in urine can be revealed by using an ultraviolet light. This way, we can remove and sanitize contaminated areas that may otherwise go unnoticed.
When you self-clean a carpet, you’re only cleaning the top visible layers. So, even though your carpets look clean, they are actually hiding layers of dirt and dust underneath.
