A clean home will help you protect your health, your sanity, and your wallet, among other things. Here are four reasons to schedule a carpet cleaning.
Your Home Smells
We hate to say it, but it’s true. You can’t light enough candles or diffuse enough oils to hide all the odors in your carpet, especially if you have pets. And the worst part? You’re used to it.
Having your carpets cleaned by experts with professional equipment will clear the air (literally!) so you can relax comfortably in your fresh smelling home. Guests will notice, too!
You’re Too Busy to DIY
Between work, a social life, after school activities, church, pets, you name it, your calendar is filled to the brim. Keeping up with all the responsibilities and functions can make it, well, hard to function!
Even if you do find time to block off an entire Saturday to do a little DIY carpet cleaning, it’s not a safe idea. Using harsh cleaners can damage your carpet. Those Rug Doctor machines available for rent at the hardware store? Bad idea. They leave carpet fibers too wet and open your floors up to mildew smells or worse, mold.
However, hiring a professional carpet cleaner allows you to skip the chores, not the fun. Carpet Tech offers customized plans for regular cleaning that fit your schedule and your budget.
Your Carpet is Full of Dangerous Things
Dirty carpet holds on to much more than funky odors. It’s also a playground for dangerous things. When dust settles into your carpet it’s capable of producing bacteria and mold that can be hazardous to your health. Dust mites and other allergens thrive in carpet fibers. These tiny insects feed on skin flake. They can also trigger asthma or other allergy-related attacks.
With family in and out of the house, you’re constantly tracking in dirt. Vacuuming is helpful, but it’s not enough. It’s important to professionally clean carpets regularly, especially before or after high traffic seasons, such as summer break and the holidays.
You Can’t Afford Not To
As you likely know, carpet is a significant investment in your home. Regular cleaning can extend the life of your carpet, but did you know it also protects your warranty? Most carpet manufacturers require you to professionally clean your carpet to keep your warranty valid.
The belief that you can save money by cleaning carpets less often simply isn’t true. (Read more about this and other professional carpet cleaning myths!) The true cost of neglecting your carpet is much higher in the long run. Consider the hidden costs, like damaging your carpet, medical expenses (hello allergist!), mold removal, needing to replace your carpet too soon.
