Carpet is the most highly trafficked furnishing in our Birmingham homes. Our carpet is constantly being walked on, laid on, sat on, and spilled on. It is exposed to dirt and contaminants on a daily basis, from pets, shoes, food, drinks, etc. It is no wonder that carpet accumulates not only general wear and tear, but also dirt, soil, dust, and other potentially harmful bacteria and contaminants. The EPA declares carpets, rugs, and other soft surfaces as a ‘health hazard’ if not properly cleaned on a regular basis. They recommend carpets be vacuumed once a week, and professionally cleaned every 6-18 months to eliminate these hazards, extend the life of your carpet, and keep it looking its best.
Professional carpet cleaners, like the team at Chet’s Cleaning, ensure that allergens, mold, bacteria, microorganisms, and soil are thoroughly removed from your carpets. Over time, dirt, dust, and allergens will accumulate in your carpet and get embedded in its fibers. Vacuuming only removes surface dirt, so all the debris that has become embedded in your carpet remains there. Some of these allergens may build up to the point that they begin to contaminate the air you breath. When these contaminants find their way into the air, they can cause respiratory problems and allergic reactions. Professional carpet cleaners are able to kill these allergens and remove them from your home so they are no longer a health threat. With the use of professional equipment, they can get your carpets fully cleaned and sanitized.
Carpets are made up of tightly twisted tufts of fibers. When dirt accumulates on these fibers, it can weaken and damage them. When you combine this with the foot traffic carpets sustain, there is some serious wear and tear that can harm your carpet if dirt is not fully removed. This will begin to give your carpet a dull appearance, and will eventually cause the fibers to split and deteriorate. Removing this debris will help improve the look and appearance of your carpet while extending the longevity of your carpet. Carpet is not cheap and you want to make sure it lasts aesthetically and functionally. Trying to deep clean carpets on your own increases the risk of damaging carpet fibers. Loosening and weakening these fibers will greatly decrease the lifespan of your carpet, which will end up costing more money in the long haul. Regular professional carpet cleaning will prolong the beauty and life of your carpets, without any risk of damage to carpet fibers.
