The holiday season is upon us and it is time to restore the style, warmth and comfort that your carpeting adds to your home. If you are like the staff at Chet’s Cleaning, we love to invite friends and family over to celebrate the holiday season. We want to make sure our homes are inviting and are full of warmth and comfort. In order to achieve this, we want to make sure our carpets are looking and feeling their best.
Having your carpets professionally cleaned before the holidays can help keep your carpet looking and feeling new while removing carpet odors and preventing future stains. Even if you don’t plan on having extravagant get-togethers in your home during the holidays, having your carpets cleaned by a professional can extend the life of your carpets by several years.
When to Call in a Carpet Cleaning Professional
- When vacuuming isn’t enough to restore the beauty and warmth of your carpeting.
- Before your carpets become dull and dingy.
- When there is a dust storm every time you walk across the room.
- You can’t stand to walk on the carpet barefoot because it feels sticky or matted down.
- Every six months, or sooner for homes that have a high level of foot traffic.
You don’t have to wait until your carpets become visibly dirty to schedule a professional carpet cleaning. In fact, preventative maintenance is the best medicine. Why wait until your carpets have already suffered damage?
Wait…Did You Say Damage?
When your carpets become overloaded with dirt, pet dander, and other grime, the fibers of your carpet can start to break down. If you were to take a closer look at the dirt and dust particles that accumulate on your carpeting, you would see just how jagged and sharp those particles can be. As we step, play, sit, and dance on the carpet these particles are cutting away at the fibers of the carpeting. As the fibers break down your carpet will start to have “bald spots”. Trust the carpet cleaning pros at Chet’s…no one wants to experience balding in their Birmingham homes.
But That’s Not All Folks!
There are several reasons why you would want to protect your carpets and one of those reasons happens to be indoor air quality. Think of your carpet as a “giant air filter”, it captures dust, pet-dander, dandruff, allergens, and other particles and keeps them from becoming airborne…preventing you and your family from breathing those particles in. When your carpet becomes “full” it can no longer do its job and capture those pesky particles. So why not breathe a little easier and keep your “giant air filter” clean all year round?
Why Isn’t Vacuuming Enough?
Vacuuming your carpets is essential when it comes to keeping your carpets clean. However, vacuuming alone isn’t enough to prevent your carpets from becoming stained or damaged. Most household vacuums just don’t have the power necessary to remove the dirt and grime from deep down within your carpet’s padding. Not to mention that most vacuums aren’t capable of removing sticky substances that embed themselves on your carpet’s fibers. So, what about DIY carpet shampooing? Sure, have you ever tried to shampoo your carpets? Nine times out of ten, DIY carpet shampooing does more harm than good. You could be left with a sticky chemical residue on your carpeting, or your carpets could start smelling because you were unable to remove enough excess moisture.
