carpet-steam-cleaningKeeping a clean floor seems like one of the easiest household chores to ignore. If it “looks fine”, we all too often assume that it is fine, this could not be further from the truth when dealing with carpets.

All floors are capable of housing dirt of any kind (if you don’t believe us, see our article on the bacteria that hide in your floors). Carpets however, are a special type of flooring that too often keep dirt locked in at its root layer, although the surface may appear to be fresh and clean.

This not only means bad news for your health, it may also mean bad news for your pocketbook. Why? Dirt badly affects carpet, it can not only make the floor look dirty but also wear it out faster. This is because for every little bit of carpet you have laid down, there can be a lot of dirt weighing into the amount of wear and tear that goes on along with the added pressure that regularly occurs over its surface.

The more wear and tear that occurs, the more often you will have to replace your carpeting, a costly and time consuming process.

How do you prevent this? With regular carpet cleaning. This can be as simple as vacuuming regularly, adding a mat to the front door, and insisting people remove their shoes… For extra measure, from time to time it also helps to have a thorough steam cleaning done, furniture cleaning, and having professionals come in to restore your existing carpet.

The carpet is the life of the room. When you try to sell a house, one of the first things people notice is how well taken care of the house looks – and the carpet plays a major part. Since most people do not want to replace their carpets entirely every five years, the best advice we can provide is to develop a carpet cleaning routine and stick to it – it will extend the life of your carpet.

Do yourself a favour and indulge in regular carpet cleaning maintenance, it will surely save you more money than it costs.
