There are many reasons to get your carpets professionally cleaned regularly, or at least on a yearly basis. Carpet care will extend the life of your carpets, remove dust mites and bed bugs, improve the appearance and feel of both your old carpets and new, and allow you to maintain your carpets much easier. Carpet care makes regular cleaning a breeze, as it removes dry soils that build up and it makes vacuuming fresh soils more efficient. Without proper cleaning, those awful dry soils will be too difficult to remove. Such care also impacts your health and improves the air quality in your home, since carpets trap airborne pollutants and dust that trigger allergies and asthma.
If you have pets, you’re probably used to seeing spots and stains around the house. Your dog or cat might track in mud from outside, get into the garbage and make a mess, or even relieve himself on your nice new rug. If you have kids it can be just as bad. Kids love to walk around with food, bring mud into your house after playing outside, and play with their arts and crafts all over your floors!
To fix the problem at hand, there are many carpet cleaning solutions. You can buy stain remover at a local supermarket, or try one of the many home remedies that have been thought up: vinegar and baking soda; a hydrogen-peroxide and baking soda mix; a citrus cleaner with lemons and oranges; and even white wine. I’m sure that list can go on for a while. However, home remedies are not that reliable and only temporarily fix the problem; we cannot rely solely on them to keep our carpets clean. Vacuuming twice a week, keeping our shoes off of the carpet, and cleaning up spills immediately are essential to proper carpet care. Nonetheless, regular carpet cleaning is the key to healthy living, a more aesthetically pleasing home, and more efficient vacuuming.
Given that new carpets are major investments, carpet care can save you money and ensure that your next carpet investment is a long way away. In fact, sometimes it even maintains your carpet’s warranty. If you have any questions or concerns about your carpet feel free to contact Aquamist carpet care, a Victoria carpet care company.
