When customers come to us for carpet cleaning, they never fail to ask us two questions: the best method to take care of carpets and when they should be cleaned. Here’s what you need to know about how best to clean your carpets and when it should be done:
- What is the best method for cleaning carpets?
Answer: The best and most effective method for cleaning carpets is the hot water extraction method.
We also use this method because most carpet manufacturers advise this. It produces outstanding results, and it’s very effective in killing bacteria and allergens that will return the original condition of the carpet. The carpet fibres will look new, and the colours that have faded will start to come out again. You will be able to use the carpet right away because your carpet will not take long to dry if this method is used on the carpet.
- When should carpets be cleaned?
Answer: They need to be cleaned every 12 to 18 months but sooner than 12 months if you have pets or kids.
Most people wait a long time before they have their carpet cleaned. This should not be the case because carpets need to be cleaned on a regular basis to give it the best maintenance. When the carpet is properly maintained and cleaned, it will have a longer lifespan. Carpet manufacturers will ask you to have them cleaned every year.
Spending on a good carpet cleaning company will save you money in the long run. The poor condition of the carpet caused by soiling leads to abrasion which is the reason carpet fibres can get worn out. This can affect the lifespan of the carpet. If you let the soil stay in your carpet for a long time, the carpet can have permanent damage.
While there is more than one carpet cleaning company that can offer hot water extraction, you need to be sure that the ones who will handle your carpet are well-trained and have the proper knowledge to give the best cleaning.
Trained and certified technicians can distinguish the type of carpet and the kind of stains you have. They will then recommend the cleaning solutions to apply and temperature to use to give a very effective clean.
