Carpets are a significant investment in home improvement, often taking a few years before they are replaced. Regular vacuuming can keep surface dirt and dust off one’s carpet but it is not sufficient for removing ingrained substances such as dust mites and allergens, and heavy carpet stains from spills and foot traffic. Here in Adelaide, the best professional carpet cleaners thoroughly clean carpets using advanced equipment and techniques, leaving a fresh and clean appearance and significantly prolonging the life of carpets.
Dust mites are microscopic organisms that thrive in carpets, bedding and textiles and feed on human skin cells. They are a leading cause of allergies and asthma, triggering common reactions such as sneezing and itching. Moulds and mildew can also form on rugs and carpets, particularly when humidity is high and air circulation at home is poor. Moisture can also get trapped in carpets creating an environment which moulds and mildew love. These microorganisms can cause various illnesses including cough, rhinitis, asthma and allergic reactions.
Animal dander, which refers to old skin cells that animals regularly shed, also contribute to the presence of allergens in homes. Skin cells and hair cling to carpets and while vacuuming can remove particles on the surface of carpets, the cleaning action of many vacuum cleaners often re-suspend dust and other tiny particles. Regular professional carpet cleaning, using high quality equipment and processes, ensure that allergens trapped in carpets are not re-circulated in the air at home and are thoroughly removed.
Moulds, mildew, and bacteria are often indicated by undesirable odours similar to fishy or locker room smells that can be a source of embarrassment to visitors and generally make home life unpleasant. Air sprays and scents only mask bad odours but are unable to address the source of bad smells. Professional carpet cleaning thoroughly cleans rugs and carpets, leaving a naturally fresh and clean smell.
Dust and dirt can gradually build up on carpet surfaces making them look dull and grey. Steam cleaning, a process that involves injecting hot water into carpet fibres, effectively loosens dirt and surface stains so that they are readily removed by a carpet cleaning professional’s truck mounted cleaning system. Carpets, rugs and upholstered furniture come out looking as good as new.
Carpets that experience heavy foot traffic and water damage from flooding are most susceptible to the formation of moulds, mildew and dust mites. Regular professional carpet cleaning services, those which know Adelaide and the different services its residents need, will remove offending microorganisms from carpets and rugs, breathe new life into them and keep a home looking and feeling clean.
