The arrival of spring brings sunshine, cleaning, home improvement projects, and those dreaded springtime allergies.
With so many allergens in the air, we bring them inside our homes where they settle into carpets and stay like an unwelcome house guest. Did you know that carpet flooring can contain 100 times more allergens than other hard-surfaced floors?
It may be time for a carpet cleaning to wash the floors and be rid of those pesky pollens. Is this a project you can do yourself? Would it be better to call a carpet cleaning company to do the job?
Let’s examine five advantages of hiring professional carpet cleaners.
1. Time Saver
Some homeowners prefer DIY carpet cleaning with rental machines that usually save on some of the expense. However, cleaning carpets yourself requires several time-consuming tasks:
- Drive to the home improvement store
- Carry the equipment to your vehicle
- Drive home and bring the equipment inside
- Move furniture in the cleaning area
- Vacuum carpets
- Get on your hands and knees to spot treat carpet for stains
- Fill and empty the tanks during the cleaning process
- Wait for the carpet to dry
- Put equipment back in your vehicle
- Make the final trip to drop off the equipment
- Put the furniture back in place after the carpet is dry
Why not call the experts, see what services we offer, and save yourself time and peace of mind?
2. Not All Carpets Are Created Equal
Most carpets are made of materials like Nylon, Olefin, Polyester, or Wool. Carpet cleaning professionals are well versed in the varying types of carpets that exist.
The best carpet cleaners know exactly how to properly treat and clean your specific type of carpet without damaging it.
3. Get a Cleaner Clean
Truck-mounted machines heat the water to an appropriate temperature that you may not be able to maintain by doing it yourself. With more powerful and eco-friendly vacuum systems, professional carpet cleaners can deep clean into carpet fibers and are more efficient at getting rid of ugly stains and unpleasant odors.
DIY methods of carpet cleaning don’t always eliminate tough stains or the smells they can leave behind. The professionals will wash, sanitize, and deodorize leaving carpets as clean as they can be.
4. Improve Indoor Air Quality
Routine vacuuming of your carpet will take care of dust and dirt on the surface. Self-cleaned carpets can lead to the growth of mold and mildew if they haven’t been cleaned and dried properly.
With so many invisible germs and microbes that live inside your carpet, having it professionally cleaned will improve the air quality inside of your home.
5. Knowledge and Experience
Most homeowners don’t know a great deal about types of carpet, how to properly clean them or what to use for the best results. Carpet cleaning professionals have all of the necessary equipment, tools, and experience to get the job done right.
Our technicians are certified through the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) and have the required education and training essential to cleaning your carpets the right way.
