Do you have carpet? In addition to vacuuming, carpet should get an occasional deep cleaning. Deep carpet cleaning gets rid of the things that get buried deep down in carpet fibers, like bacteria, dirt, mites and pet dander. Deep cleaning also extends your carpet life. Regular traffic throughout your home and stains that don’t get cleaned consistently can cause carpet to wear down quickly. That is why an annual professional deep cleaning is important. If you have children or pets, you may need to have your carpet cleaned every six months.
There are some situations in which your carpet may need immediate attention. For example, if your carpet receives heavy water damage from rain or a busted pipe, it will require flood water extraction. This will need to be done as quickly as possible, in order to prevent carpet removal. If you have pets, you may have pet odors and urine or vomit stains that will require your carpet to receive some extra attention. Rips, snags and tears are bound to happen, especially if you have children or pets. These can’t be cleaned, but they can be repaired professionally.
Dry cleaning and hot water extraction are the two preferred methods professional carpet cleaners use to clean carpet. Dry cleaning is the costlier option and leaves more residue on the carpet but there is a shorter drying time. Hot water extraction is the most commonly used method, as it leaves minimal residue.
