5 Benefits of Regular Carpet Cleaning

We all know that in order to prolong the life of something you have to look after it. Your carpets are no different. Research has shown that dirty carpets can worsen the symptoms of allergy and asthma sufferers. Pet hair, dust mites, fleas, pollen, dirt and other debris all gets caught in the fibers of your carpet. There are many benefits to getting your carpets professionally cleaned regularly. Check out our top 5 below.

1) Extends the life of your carpet

Regular professional cleaning can extend the life of your carpet by removing all dirt and grime from the depths of your carpet. If left in there too long, these bits of debris can contribute to your carpet deteriorating and falling apart much sooner.

2) Keeps any dust or allergens at bay

Our carpets can be a great hiding spot for any dust or allergens. If you find your allergies are flaring up, it’s possible your carpet is to blame. It goes without saying that regular professional cleans will not only get rid of the dust and allergens but prevent them from getting trapped as easily. A dirty carpet is much more likely to trap particles of dust and allergens than a clean one. If the circulation in your house is poor and the air is moist you may find yourself with mould or mildew living in your carpets. These can also trigger allergies and aren’t good for our health. If you’re allergies are playing up get into contact with your local Maryborough carpet cleaning service today.

3) Removes carpet stains

If you get your carpets cleaned more frequently there’s a much better chance the stains will come out. If stains are left in the carpets for an extended period of time they may not come out. This is because the stain has longer to soak into the fibers low down in the carpet. The longer a stain sits in the carpet the less likely it is to come out. If you’re carpets are stained call a Maryborough carpet cleaning service today.

4) Makes your carpets look newer for longer

Because of the frequent removal of dirt and grime and also the removal of stains, regular professional cleaning can ensure your carpets look newer for longer. Who doesn’t want brand new looking carpets? Frequent cleaning can also reduce the ‘traffic lane effect’, a pattern in the carpet made by frequent foot traffic.

5) Removes any smells

We’re all familiar with the wet carpet smell. When your carpet gets wet the water mixes with the material to create that horrible wet carpet smell. Eventually dirt and even mould is attracted to the dampness and creates even more of a smell – sometimes one that’s almost impossible to get out. If you’re carpets are beginning to smell, contact your local Maryborough carpet cleaning service.

What does professional carpet cleaning offer that DIY carpet cleaning can’t?

Many DIY carpet cleaning products are not as effective as proper professional steam cleaning as our state-of-the-art machinery allows us to extract particles from right down the bottom of your carpets. Vacuuming and home carpet cleaning usually only removes the top layer of dirt. By getting your carpets professionally cleaned, you’re ensuring that your carpets are free of dirt, bacteria and any other harmful particles trapped in your carpet. Most of the time, we are even able to remove stains from your carpet. Many people are surprised with how well their carpets look at the end of a professional clean.
