Don’t you just love the feeling of thick, clean carpet between your toes? It just makes your home so inviting and welcoming to everyone — friends, family and your pets. But, to keep this wonderful and luxurious feel, it is so important to take care of your carpeting and area rugs.
It’s true that other flooring like slate, wood or tile can be easier to take care of, and they don’t hold onto dust or germs as readily as carpet, but if comfort is what you’re looking for, they just don’t have the same appeal. I’ve known people who’ve had the same carpet in their home for over ten years and it still looks just as good as it did when they purchase it! How could that be? By making sure you give the proper care to your investment.
Kitty on clean carpetWearing shoes in the house, dropping food or drinks, or if you have pets (kitty litter tracking or accidents) can cause the carpets in any home to become very dirty, very quickly. Carpet cleaning is an absolute necessity especially if there are kids or pets running around. The best way to care for your carpet is to call on a professional crew on a regular basis. They will keep your home environment in optimum condition.
The best person to gauge how often your carpets should be cleaned is you. You’ll know through odor and that comfy, cozy carpet feel, when it’s time to give CBC Cleaning and Restoration a call. According to the manufacturer of most carpeting types, it is recommended that carpets be professionally cleaned using the truck mounted hot water cleaning method every 12-18 months to maintain their warranties. There are other cleaning methods like dry powder, foam, shampoo or steam cleaning, and while home-remedies might save a little money and make the carpet a little cleaner than before, a professional cleaning service performed by certified technicians will last far longer and protect the carpet from continuous soiling through scotchgard applications.
Different techniques and the costs associated with those techniques can vary greatly. But, a truck-mounted, hot water extraction unit is the most effective equipment to remove deeply embedded dirt, pet dander, stains and grime from your carpets and rugs, and it should be performed by a trained professional.
Under other unusual circumstances, if your carpet has experienced water damage or fire damage, it is absolutely imperative that you call a professional to make every effort to save your investment. In addition, it will help to clear the air, help eliminate any odors and return the indoor environment back to a healthy situation for you and your family. The techniques, products and services of a professional cleaning company, like CBC, can take care of the problem and eliminate further environmental and health issues.
