Did you know that your carpet can hold up to one pound of dirt per square yard before it even begins to look dirty?
Dirt acts as an abrasive. This means that every time you step on the carpet, you are grinding the dirt into the carpet fibers causing them to break and wear down. It is important to keep your carpet cleaned both professionally as well as personally. Some things that you can do to keep your carpet healthy and last longer include:
Vacuum your carpets often. We recommend at least twice a week. Vacuuming will help to remove the dirt and other abrasives wearing down your carpet fibers. As you know, the outdoor air contains pollutants, fungus, dust mites, pollens, bacteria, cigarette smoke, car exhaust and hundreds of other chemicals. What you don't realize is that when you enter your home, you are bringing those pollutants and pollens in with you. And of course all of these end up in your carpet.
As mentioned earlier, your carpet can hold up to one pound of dirt per square yard before it begins to look dirty. Don't wait until your carpet looks dirty to vacuum!
When choosing a carpet cleaning professional, keep in mind that the hot water extraction unit mounted in a van is the most powerful cleaning method available on the market. We use a Prochem Truck Mounted Steam System enabling us to thoroughly clean your carpet ridding it of the harmful bacteria, chemicals, tobacco residue and fungus that are destroying your carpet and your health. This system cleans better because it heats the water to over 200 degrees while injecting the cleaning solution directly into your carpet using 400 lbs of pressure, thus ensuring the bacteria and germs are eradicated.
Anyone suffering from allergies, asthma or other breathing problems should consider having your carpets professionally cleaned at least once in the winter months to help ensure a healthier indoor climate.
