Why Carpet Cleaning Is So Important

There are many reasons why carpet cleaning is so necessary. However, perhaps the most important reason by far has to do with health and hygiene. What many people don’t realize is that carpets harbor all manner of dirt and germs, from people walking on them with their shoes, especially if they have stepped straight in from the street, and not changed into their slippers. Even the soles of sandals are not dirt and germ-free.

Dirty carpets and even some upholstered fabrics can attract dust mites, cause allergy problems, affect people living with asthma, and also contribute to sickness and ill-health. They are breeding grounds for all kinds of bacteria, allergies and dust mites, if not adequately cleaned regularly. Kitchen tops, cookers, bathrooms, and toilets are cleaned regularly, at least once a week, even hard floors are cleaned weekly or fortnightly as well as table tops by most people.

When it comes to carpets however most people resort to just vacuuming their mats, which only removes the surface dust and some dirt. Occasionally, maybe once a year they may shampoo their carpets, themselves, or rent a Carpet Cleaning Brisbane service, which can work out quite expensive, to try to do it themselves. While this does remove a lot of the dirt from their carpets, it is no substitute for a professional carpet cleaning system which uses the hot water extraction method of cleaning.

This method using professional machinery and specialist detergents gets deep down into the carpet fibers removing bad ground in dirt, stains, and bacteria from them. It also works on rugs and most upholstered fabrics, including upholstered dining chairs. Most people don’t realize how dirty their carpets are. Even when they think their carpets look clean, mainly when they are a dark color, which masks most of the dirt and stains in them. Even after five or ten years, they can still refuse to believe that their carpets are filthy. It does not matter what color their carpets are; they still get dirty. Most ordinary cleaning methods don’t take out enough dirt from the mats to make a real difference.

Most good quality carpets these days cost much money, a single average sized sitting room carpet can cost five hundred pounds or more to replace. A whole house or apartment with new carpets can run into thousands of pounds. With this kind of investment, it is well worth spending a little money to look after them. If carpets are not cleaned properly, over time the soil and dirt become ingrained into them, which has an abrasive effect on the pile, wearing it down much quicker and shortening their life. This is made even worse if stains are left untreated.

Having carpets properly cleaned regularly using professional cleaning methods like hot water extraction, can remove ingrained soil, dirt, and stains and add years of extra life to them. Spotless carpets are a worthwhile investment, and can bring lasting benefits; not just in terms of contributing to health and well-being, but also financial savings over the long-term.
