There are many annual or semi-annual appointments and check-ups that most people have to organise for themselves. From dental appointments to car services, there seems to be an ever-growing list of these events that require monitoring. However, one area of their home that many people seem to overlook when it comes to professional maintenance is their carpets. Carpet cleaning by someone with the proper equipment and professional training is vastly different from simply running a vacuum over some spilled crumbs. Here are a few reasons why you should consider adding a yearly carpet cleaning to your calendar in the near future.
Extract Unseen Dirt And Bacteria
Many professional carpet cleaning services use quite amazing machines that quickly and forcefully push hot water and some cleaning chemicals into your carpet, soaking it deeper than you can see, and then quickly and effectively sucking all that water back up along with the dirt and bacteria you can't see. While you might wonder if this is necessary, if you can't see the dirt and bacteria anyway, the truth is that you only can't see it because your eyes are accustomed to how your carpet looks now. Getting your carpet cleaned by a professional will remove the thin veneer of dirt to reveal a much cleaner and more distinctive colour beneath.
Stains are every carpet owner's worst nightmare, and they always seem to happen in very obvious and central locations. There is only so much scrubbing you can do on your hands and knees before you give up and try and hide the stain rather than fix it. Carpet cleaners have a few more tricks up their sleeves than you do, and they come heavily equipped with strong and safe chemicals that have specific steps that must be followed to get the best results. If you want stains out, this is the only real option other than replacing your carpet altogether.
Create A Uniform Look And Feel
After years of use, some parts of your home will have carpet that is much older looking and almost a different, more faded shade than rooms that potentially don't get a lot of visitors or sunlight. This can create quite a contrasting look between areas of your home, and this is something that most people do not like. Carpet cleaning puts every room back on a level playing field and makes your home look uniform. This is particularly useful before a big event you are hosting or potentially if you are trying to sell the house.
