Will Professional Carpet Cleaning Services Remove Musty Smells from Your Carpet?

Carpets completely change the look and feel of the room. Depending on the type of carpet or rug you have, the very ambience of the house changes.  But having a carpet also means a lot of maintenance and depending on the carpet fibers, the effort required to keep them clean also varies.

Carpets are magnets when it comes to attracting dust, mites and bad odors. If you have pets you can see their fur always getting attached to your carpets. Despite cleaning your house thoroughly if any bad odors linger then it is because of your carpets. Carpets have multiple porous fibers that harbor the odors and keep your house stinking.

But there is a silver lining to all this. With the right cleaning method these foul odors can be removed. And these services are provided by professionals like us who use the right equipment to get the stench out.

In the next section, let’s discuss how carpet cleaning removes pet odors.

Does Carpet Cleaning Remove Pet Odors?

It becomes tricky if you attempt to clean the pet stains on the carpets yourself. There is a high chance of you pushing the stain further into the fibers of the carpet making the problem worse. Professional carpets cleaners work by eliminating the bacteria that comes along with the pet stains which in turn eliminates the bad odor. 

Professional carpet cleaners avoid all the problems amateurs encounter when they clean the carpets. They won’t make the stain bigger, or permanent for that matter and use cleaning solutions that are compatible with the material of the carpet. Professional carpet cleaners can clean the carpet thoroughly, right down to the underlying padding and will never cover up the bad odors by spraying deodorizers, perfumes, etc.

In some cases you might have noticed that your carpet smells even worse after cleaning. There is a reason for that and we have discussed it in detail in the next section.

Why Does My Carpet Smell Worse After Cleaning?

The most common cause for an unpleasant smelling carpet even after it is cleaned by you is improper extraction. If the water is not extracted properly then the carpet becomes a haven for fungus, molds, mildew, germs and viruses leading to unpleasant odors. This also becomes a health hazard as your carpets have turned into a breeding ground for many microbes.

It is advisable to call professional cleaners like us at this stage as we will promptly remove any microbe growing on your carpets and stop your carpets from becoming health hazards. We will also dry them properly  so that they don’t return. 

Smelling Smoke Odors in Your Home Even Though You Don’t Smoke?

If you don’t smoke and no one in your home smokes but you still smell that second hand smoke in your house then most likely your carpets are the culprit. This is because the fibers of your carpet are usually super absorbent and if you have neighbors who smoke and leave their windows open when they do, then it is highly likely that some of that smoke comes and clings onto your carpets.

The cigarette smell typically lingers in the oil and tar of the tobacco and when someone smokes these materials melt and become airborne. They then cling onto the walls, your upholstery and your carpet. Regular, normal cleaning cannot get rid of this smell effectively and professional carpet cleaning services will use the latest equipment like steam cleaners to remove this odor.

Steam cleaning removes these odors by melting the tar and oils of tobacco that are clinging to your carpet fibers. This process also removes the smoke molecules and odors trapped in the carpet. The high temperature of the steam kills all the fungus, germs, mildew, bacteria and viruses completely sanitizing your carpet. In no time your carpet will be looking and feeling fresh and clean.

Steam cleaning is best done by professionals and our experienced crew does it with a lot of knack. The steam generated out of the steam machine  is very hot and should be handled with care. If  you do not handle it well then it becomes dangerous and you risk burning your skin, sinus passages or your eyes.
