The importance of professional carpet cleaning

Having your carpets professionally cleaned will give you healthy carpets.

Having your carpets professionally cleaned will give you healthy carpets.

No matter how often you vacuum and no matter what products you use, your carpets will never look clean if they're not professionally cleaned. As a homeowner or business owner, you want to make sure that your building is welcoming and presentable for visitors- professional carpet cleaning can do just that!
It's important to have the carpets in your home or office professionally cleaned at least once a year so they look fresh and new.

Vacuuming and spot cleaning can't get out deeply embedded dirt and debris that may accumulate over time. Vacuuming can't reach deep into the carpet fibres to get out dirt and debris. Even if you use the best upright vacuum cleaner around, it will never give your carpets a truly thorough cleaning!
Therefore, having your carpets professionally cleaned by experienced carpet cleaners is extremely important if you want to maintain them at their highest level of appearance and function.

What is Professional Carpet Cleaning?

Professional carpet cleaning is a term used to describe the process of cleaning carpets with equipment and supplies that are not typically found in a home. Carpet cleaning machines use hot water and detergents to clean carpets and powerful commercial-grade vacuums to extract dirt, dust, and stains. Professionals also use a variety of deodorizers and stain protectants to keep carpets looking new.

If you still aren't convinced of the importance of professional carpet cleaning, here are some other reasons why this service is necessary:

  1. Carpets accumulate dirt and dust from people living in or walking on them daily.
  2. Dirt and debris wear away at the fibres and can result in lacklustre or threadbare carpets.
  3. Without professional care, carpets can be ruined quickly!
  4. Professional carpet cleaning will remove dirt, grime, allergens, bacteria, mould spores, and more.
  5. Cleaning also eliminates odours in your carpets that could be caused by pets, cooking, and eating food or smoking.
  6. Most importantly though and given that small children spend a lot of time playing on the carpet, carpet cleaning keeps your children healthier since it eliminates up to 94 percent of allergenic particles that linger in the carpet fibres.
  7. Carpets are one of the biggest accumulators of dust mites and their feces (droppings) this can result in increased allergies and recurring asthma attacks. Carpet cleaning can reduce allergens by up to 94 percent.

How often should you get your carpets cleaned?

Carpets should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months, depending on the amount of traffic they experience. If you have pets, children, or work in an area where there's a lot of oil and grease, it would be recommended to clean the carpets every 6 months. If you don't have these issues, a general clean every year should suffice.

When it comes to carpet cleaning, some think that they can save money by doing it themselves, however, professional cleaning is the only way to remove dirt and grime that has penetrated deep into the carpet's fibres.

Who should clean your carpets?

It's important to have your carpets professionally cleaned by a reputable business. You want to find one that advertises excellent customer satisfaction, experience, full insurance, and they should have excellent customer reviews. Some companies use truck-mounted machines, while others use powerful portable machines, either can give excellent results.

What is the process?

First, the carpet cleaner will inspect your carpets and give you an estimate of how long it will take and what services they will provide. Often during this process, they will thoroughly vacuum your carpets and pre-treat any stains or heavily soiled areas with a pre-treatment solution. The technician will then position himself behind his machine and get to work, applying a cleaning solution. They'll vacuum up excess moisture and dirt, using powerful vacuums, ensuring no residue is left behind.
Afterward, they'll use fans and/or dehumidifiers to dry the area as quickly as possible before applying some stain protector solution on your carpet. This will help fight future stains from being able to adhere themselves to your carpet fibres.

What are the costs of professional carpet cleaning services?

Providing a professional carpet cleaning services involves a large investment in machinery and training. This does not come cheap. Consequently you should be wary of companies that offer their services for next to nothing.

Carpet cleaning costs anywhere between £4.50 and £6.50 per square meter. There will usually be a minimum call-out charge too. Some carpet cleaners will charge on a room by room basis.
