Why is it important to clean your carpets?

Experts say regular or ordinary cleaning can never completely clean your carpets. And this is very right. If you have attempted cleaning your carpets you would have noticed that no matter how many times you clean the carpets the water will always be black indicating the amount of dirt and grime still left in your carpet.

You can be very sure that your carpet is home to multiple microbes, germs, viruses, etc and it also regularly attracts dust mites and pet dander. These things in turn make your carpets a thriving zone for various kinds of pests including cockroaches, termites and ants. When microbes and pests call your carpets their home that is when you need to do something about your carpets before they start getting in the way of your health and the health of your family.

Cleaning your carpets thoroughly is not a luxury but a necessity and it is something that you cannot put off. In the next section , let’s discuss which method is better: the DIY method  or getting professional help when it comes to cleaning your carpets.

Paying professionals vs DIY

If you have delicate rugs and carpets made out of fibers that need to be handled with care then hiring professionals like us is your best bet. This is especially true in scenarios where you as the owner have little knowledge and experience cleaning your carpets.

Another factor which dirties your carpets quickly is when it is placed in high traffic areas around the house. These areas see regular footfalls and children and pets walk on them without a second thought. It is not easy to stop your kids and pets from walking on the carpet and is hardly a solution.

So, in our opinion you should take up the DIY approach only when you are well versed in carpet cleaning, you have sufficient knowledge regarding the material of the carpet and you can handle machines like the steam cleaner without injuring yourself.

If you are unsure about any of the points mentioned above then it is wise to contact and hire professional carpets cleaners like us.

How often should you clean your carpets?

The answer to this question depends on so many factors and there is no one common answer. The material of the carpet plays a huge role in the frequency of cleaning and the cleaning technique we employ.

Experts suggest deep cleaning your carpets every six months on an average but based on the factors above this frequency can either decrease or increase accordingly.

Shampoo vs steam clean

There are two common methods of carpet cleaning, i.e. the shampoo method and the steam clean method. Some professionals also combine the two methods to get better results and this is done only after thoroughly inspecting the carpet.

The steam machine heats the water to high temperatures and converts it into steam which is then used to loosen up the dirt stuck in the carpet fibers. Shampoos have antibacterial and deodorizing properties that get rid of bad smells.
