Why it’s important to clean your carpets regularly
Cleaning is everyone’s least favourite, and more often than not, most time consuming household chore. Most of my Saturday mornings are taken up by a rigorous and thorough cleaning session and I always feel great afterwards but a recent article published by the Daily Telegraph had me second guessing my efforts and I saw my home in a whole new light.
Regular Vacuuming is your carpets best friend
When you think about the “dirtiest” places in a home, the bathroom and
kitchen rank pretty high on that list but according to a study by Dr Philp Tierno, a microbiologist and immunologist for Langone Medical Center (New York), carpets were one of the grimiest places in the home with 4000 times more bacteria than a toilet seat and whilst regular vacuuming is your carpet’s best friend, Clark suggests that people with carpet get a “deep clean” every six months. This will not only keep your carpets in the best possible condition but will also help to safeguard you and your family.
With this in mind, there a number of carpet cleaning options available to you. The most popular of which are chemical “dry clean” and “steam clean”. Each have their own benefits and drawbacks.
A “dry” carpet clean involves chemicals being applied to the carpet and then scrubbed with a pad. As minimal water is used, the key benefit here is you can walk straight on to the carpet as soon as it’s been cleaned. However, a “dry” carpet clean will only clean the outer layer of the carpet and won’t offer the deep clean you might be wanting to eradicate the bacteria lurking in your carpet.
The warm water extraction method, sometimes referred to as a “steam” clean involves moving hot water through the carpet, lifting dirt, grime and stains from the under-layers of the carpet. Providing a deep clean which leaves your carpets fresh, clean and most importantly, germ free.
