Calgary Carpet Cleaning – The 6 Reasons People Normally Clean. Are they the right reasons?
Studies have revealed that there are six reasons that people schedule to have their carpet cleaning done. Some of these reasons may be more important than others? Are there reasons to clean before your carpet, rugs, upholstery or even floors “look” soiled?
Reason #1: Events.
Many people have their carpet cleaning done because there is some type of event taking place. Perhaps family is coming into town (or the kids went off to college and you can finally see the floor!). Although entertaining guests or family on clean floors and carpets is a fantastic idea, don’t let this be the only reason you clean.
Reason #2: Visible Soil.
The second common reason for cleaning is there is some type of visible soiling. Whether it is a spot or a traffic area, it just becomes unsightly. Many times waiting until your carpet is visibly soiled is waiting too late! Traffic area damage may have occurred, and spots may have become permanent!
Rule of thumb: Clean your traffic areas BEFORE they show visible soil. This may seem absurd at first, but you will eliminate gritty soil that bonds to your carpet or floor. Traffic area soil that is not removed will abrade the surface much like sandpaper.
Reason #3: Maintenance.
This is one of the best reasons to clean!
By properly caring for your carpet, upholstery, rugs, and floors, you dramatically increase it’s life, giving you many more years of use. Plus, it will look clean all the time.
Reason # 4: Health.
This is also a great reason to clean. Your carpet acts as a “sink” or a “filter”. It catches pollens, bacteria, insecticides, asphalt, and many other contaminants that is tracked or blown in. Many of these contaminants are not removed with vacuuming. The “sink” or the “filter” eventually gets full.
This does not mean you should throw out your carpet. Some allergy doctors have suggested removing your textiles because dust-mites and bacteria breed in soft surfaces. Although this is a legitimate claim, there is more to the story. A Swiss study revealed that public buildings that pulled out carpets because of respiratory irritations, actually saw an increase in illnesses when carpet was removed. The reason? Particles become airborne when the “filter” or “sink” is not there to catch them. This does NOT mean that you should or shouldn’t throw out your carpet! It just means that if you have hard surfaces, mop them often. If you have carpets or rugs, vacuum regularly, and have professional cleaning done before there is visible soil.
Reason #5: Problem Solving.
Occasionally something happens to a textile that appears to be a defect, but can actually be corrected through professional cleaning. Usually carpet manufacturers will require your carpet to be serviced by a certified professional cleaning firm before sending out a representative.
