A big, comfy carpet that you can relax on is the perfect centerpiece to your living areas. However, cleaning large sections of carpet by yourself can be a hassle. Whether you’re trying to prolong the life of your flooring, or refresh a room that sees heavy use, contacting a professional takes the stress out of getting your home in tip-top shape.
If you’re plagued by a dirty carpet, you know that it can really bring down the look of a home. How often you get your carpets cleaned will depend on the amount of use that they see–having children or pets at home can definitely hasten things. According to an article from the Family Handyman, most carpets should be cleaned at least once a year to keep them fresh.
Other signs that your carpet might be due for a cleaning is discoloration, matting, stubborn stains, or any sort of smell. (Carpets have a knack for holding onto scents like pet urine or smoke.)
An especially dirty carpet is nothing to take lightly. Pollutants and allergens like dust mites, pet dander, dirt and mold spores can settle deep into your carpet over time. According to the American Lung Association, these pollutants can become airborne when the carpet is disturbed. This is an especially large concern for people with young children, since kids might spend time playing on the floor and putting their hands in their mouths.
Thankfully, MasterClean’s carpet cleaning professionals will take the time to do a thorough cleaning of your most important living spaces, including a post-cleaning walkthrough to ensure that we haven’t missed anything.
The best solution to a dirty carpet is a professional cleaning. Machines used by professionals reach higher temperatures than those you can buy at home, and can extract more out of the carpet as they clean. Professional cleaning jobs also dry faster, effectively neutralizing the chance for any lingering dampness to cause damage (and unpleasant, wet feet).
Another benefit to having your carpets professionally cleaned is that the powerful equipment used is better at treating stains and discoloration than the steam cleaners you can buy or rent on your own. In addition, our experts at MasterClean will groom your carpet to reduce matting and help it to dry.
It’s also worth considering the matter of high-quality rugs when thinking about getting a professional cleaning. Writers at The New York Times recommend again trying to DIY washing them. Colorful, wool rugs are at the highest risk from improper treatment, as mishandling can cause them to bleed their colors.
Having yearly carpet cleaning will allow your carpets and rugs to last longer, keeping your interiors fresh and up to date.
