We spend a lot of time keeping our homes clean and presentable – after all, our home is our sanctuary, so we want it to be a healthy place to live. Vacuuming our carpets is a task most of us do regularly, but is it enough to keep our carpets clean? Not by a long shot!
Professional carpet cleaning is not just a luxury, it’s a necessity. Homeowners should make professional carpet cleaning a priority to protect their investment, prolong the life of their carpets, and improve their indoor air quality. Whether you just moved into your home or you’ve been living there for years, professional carpet cleaning is a must to ensure that your carpets are truly clean.
New Home, Old Carpets
Are you a new homeowner? The carpets in your new home may look clean, but there are likely to be hidden dirt, mud, stains and allergens present from previous owners. Who knows what they were tracking into the house and onto the carpets! Get rid of those nasty old stains and stinks from past tenants by having the carpets professionally cleaned before you move in.
If, on the other hand, you’ve been living in your home for several years, you still need to have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly. No matter how often you vacuum, dirt can collect in the carpet fibers, causing unnecessary wear and tear and shortening the life of your carpets. Professional carpet cleaners have the experience and equipment to deep clean carpets, removing all the dirt, dust, and stains that have built up over time.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
In addition to extending the life of your carpets, professional carpet cleaning can also improve your indoor air quality. Carpets can trap allergens and other airborne contaminants, which can worsen allergies and respiratory problems. Professional carpet cleaning removes these contaminants from your carpets, leaving your home more comfortable and safer for everyone. You’ll be able to breathe easier knowing that your home’s air contains fewer allergens and contaminants!
Professional Steam Cleaning to the Rescue
Nearly all carpet manufacturers recommend having your carpets professionally steam cleaned at least once a year. In fact, many stain-resistant manufacturer warranties require professional cleaning at least every other year. Standard industry guidelines call for using steam cleaning water that is heated to 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
Here at A Personal Touch Carpet Cleaning Services, we go above and beyond the industry standard – we use water heated up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit. This is hot enough to kill 98% of household germs. Your carpets will be super clean and fresh after we get done cleaning them!
Carpeting generally lasts 10-15 years, but with regular care and cleaning, you can extend its life to 20-25 years. You could clean your carpets yourself with a carpet cleaning machine, but why not let us do it for you? We’ll even groom your carpets afterwards and protect them with a Dupont Teflon carpet protector, if you like.
Professional cleanings can restore that new carpeting look and extend the life of your carpets, so don’t wait until they are visibly dirty to call a professional. Schedule regular professional carpet cleanings to protect your investment!
Remember at A Personal Touch, we don’t cut corners, we clean them!
