The Benefits Of Professional Carpet Cleaning
Carpets are significant long-term investments. While regular vacuuming may remove the dust and dirt from carpet surfaces it’s not enough to eliminate the deeper lying allergens and dust mites or the tough carpet stains caused by foot traffic and spills. Leading Adelaide carpet cleaning experts help to lengthen the lifespan of carpets by thoroughly cleaning them with the highest quality techniques and equipment, leaving carpets fresh and clean in appearance.
Dust mites are microbes that live in carpets and fabrics and thrive on a diet of dead human skin cells. Initiating symptoms like itching and sneezing, they are among the top causes of asthma and allergies. When the circulation of air in the home is poor it can trigger the development of mould and mildew in carpets and rugs. If moisture gets trapped in carpets it can also give rise to mould and mildew growth. These micro-organism can make people sick with a variety of illnesses with symptoms including rhinitis (sinus infection), cough, allergies and asthma.
Animal Dander & Hair
Dead skin cells shed by pets (referred to as animal dander) can also act as an allergen in the home. Such skin cells, as well as hair tends to cling to carpets. While vacuuming can remove these particles from the carpet surface, vacuums tend to re-distribute dust and tiny particles at the same time. However, regularly scheduled expert carpet cleaning, employing the use of high quality procedures and equipment, ensure that allergens embedded in carpeting are thoroughly removed so they don’t find their way back into the home through re-circulation.
Locker room or fishy type odours can be an indication that bacteria, moulds and mildew are present in carpets. This can be a considerable embarrassment when visitors come over. It can also decrease the quality of home life. While air fresheners and fragrances can ‘cover up’ these unpleasant odours, they don’t address the actual cause of the smell. Expert carpet cleaning does remove these microbes and leaves the carpets smelling fresh and clean.
Dirt and dust can build up on the surface of carpets over time. This makes them look dingy and grey. Steam cleaning is a process that injects hot water into carpeting and loosens surface stains and dirt. So they can be easily removed via the carpet cleaner’s cleaning systems which are generally mounted to their trucks. Afterwards, upholstered furniture, rugs and carpets are left with a fresh, ‘like new’ appearance.
Heavy Foot Traffic & Water Damage
Carpets that undergo heavy foot traffic or water damage from any form of flooding are more vulnerable to the development of dust mite colonies and growth of mould and mildew. A schedule of regular professional carpet cleaning will eliminate the offending microbes in your carpets and rugs. Therefore, breathing new life into them so your home can look and feel clean.
