A carpet is an expensive investment, and correct carpet cleaning is a must. Not only does cleaning preserve the appearance, it also prolongs the life of the carpet.
Particles of dirt in the pile act like countless tiny blades, slashing at the fibres of the carpet. Traffic over the carpet exacerbates this process, so regular hoovering is important. The damage that a carpet receives can easily be seen when hoovering, as the fluff mixed with the dirt is the carpet fibres that have become detached.
It’s silly how some people believe professional cleaning can cause their carpets to shrink. “Regular cleaning of carpets will shrink my carpet thus ruining it forever” is one of the major myths that professional carpet cleaners always have to face and debunk. Most people think that regular cleaning leads to wear of the carpet thus leading to loss of size and density. In truth, it’s nothing but a baseless rumor that has been going around for as long as the carpet cleaners have been in business.
Regular and proper carpet cleaning can benefit your family’s health. Though it may not seem obvious at first, your carpet actually soaks up a lot of pollutants. Dirt and dust are just the beginning; a carpet can become the breeding ground for insects, like dust mites and fleas, while it absorbs deadly chemicals, such as insecticides and cleaning solutions.
