Your carpet is an investment, protect it!
Carpet cleaning is something that is often glossed over by homeowners. Although we walk on it every day, we don’t always consider that it needs to be cleaned, and not just vacuumed. Home owners often don’t think too much of cleaning their carpet because they aren’t always aware of the investment in it. If they purchased the home and the carpet was already installed, they’re probably not aware of the cost. The fact is though, high end carpet is expensive, so you should do what you can to preserve it and extend its life.
Most carpet soiling goes unseen.
While the visible dirt may be what you want to get rid of the most, it is the microscopic dirt and allergens that should be dealt with the most. These microscopic dirt particles have sharp edges that damage the carpet and shorten its life. Dirt can be removed, but cuts and damage can’t be undone.
The next time you vacuum your carpet, pay attention to the amount of fuzz that is in the vacuum canister – most of that is your carpet.
Which carpet cleaning method is best?
So how can you best clean your carpet to help prolong its life? Is it best to just rent a carpet cleaner, or should you trust a carpet cleaning professional? The bottom line is that professional carpet cleaners have much better technology and more powerful cleaners, so they can ultimately do a much better job. Considering the cost of renting a carpet cleaning unit, and the cost of the cleaner itself, plus the hassle of picking it up, then cleaning it out after using it , and then dropping it back off – going with a professional carpet cleaning service just makes sense. It gives you a much better bang for your buck, and you can relax knowing that your carpet has been properly cleaned, conditioned, and taken care of.
