How regular and professional carpet cleaning can improve your quality of life
Experts, carpet manufacturers and the Australian Standards agree that household carpets should be cleaned every 6-12 months depending on the number of people living in the home and whether children and pets reside in the home. The Australian Standards also recommend the use of the hot water extraction method, also commonly referred to as steam cleaning.
Hot water extraction or steam cleaning is the best option for a deep, hygienic clean that will clear all dust, dirt and other pollutants from your carpet fibers but besides the obvious benefits of having clean, fresh feeling carpet here are three great reasons to have your carpets cleaned.
Better Air Quality
This is a benefit we like to remind people with respiratory problems like asthma or allergies like hay fever. Your carpet acts like your home's air filter and will draw in pollutants you bring in on foot or soils that are brought in on the breeze. Contrary to popular belief, carpets are actually a better option for people with asthma or allergies as long as they maintain regular cleaning. The reason for this is because carpets naturally draw and store these pollutants so they are not floating around in the air, ready to enter your lungs. Continuing with 6-12 monthly steam cleaning services will vastly improve the air quality in your home, making for a healthier home overall.
Carpets can be home to many different pollutants that build up over time, which is why it is essential to have them professionally steam cleaned regularly to clean out the build up of dust, dirt, dust mites, mould spores and bacteria. All of these things are found in carpet and because your carpet catches and stores pollutants, they stay there until foot traffic agitates them into the air or they are cleaned out. By having your carpets cleaned using the hot water extraction method you are ensuring the bacteria, mould spores, dirt and dust mites are being drawn out of the carpet fibers, leaving you with cleaner, healthier carpet.
Saves Money in the Long Run
Carpets represent a substantial investment for any household and regular steam cleaning is a great way to extend the life of the carpet. Over time your carpet will draw in a substantial amount of dirt, dust, pollen, mould spores, bacteria and abrasive soils like dirt and dust which work away at the carpet fibers, causing them to wear and fray. Regular carpet cleaning will remove the build up of these soils, lengthening the life of the carpet.
So there you have it, three great reasons why having professional carpet cleaning done on a regular basis improves your quality of life. Not only does it help you maintain a healthier home but it will save you money and who doesn't love the feeling of freshly cleaned carpets underfoot?
