Carpets need to be cleaned on a regular basis to ensure the safety and good health of the family. However, most people don’t have the time to efficiently clean their carpets themselves because it is time consuming and tedious. Although Do-It-Yourself can be an option, here are five reasons why you should leave it to the professionals.
1. Carpet cleaning is not a task suited for individuals
A proper, professional cleaning system can go a long way toward creating a more hygienic environment. A number of studies have shown that 50% of homes in Australia contain dust mites and allergen levels that can cause allergies and asthma. Many people believe vacuuming is enough to keep the carpets clean only to discover that it’s nearly impossible to suction up all the dust that’s accumulated beneath their carpet with a traditional steam cleaner. If you haven’t thoroughly removed accumulated dust, it’s circling through your air and continues to pose as an everyday threat to your children who are breathing it in. In addition to cleaning, your carpet should also be disinfected. A carpet cleaning company has the professional staff and heavy duty equipment to get every last inch of dirt, allergens, pet hair and germs out of your carpet.
2. A professional carpet cleaning company is well-versed with methods and products that won’t harm the environment and your family
There are a lot of commercial cleaners available in convenience stores and promoted by television infomercials but how reliable and safe are these products? Keep in my mind that if it’s harmful to the environment, it is harmful to your family’s health as well. If you have children or pets, carpet cleaning can be more dangerous than you think. Renting equipment and using the chemicals that go with it can leave chemical residue on your carpets that can make your children or pets sick. Companies often use environmentally safe products that not only remove stains and odors, but also leave the air and surfaces safe for small children to walk around on once dry.
3. Carpet cleaning companies are updated and always invest in the latest equipment.
One of the major reasons for hiring professionals is that they use effective and advanced cleaning equipment that produce the desired results. They have access to equipment that is not available for traditional retail. Plus, a professional carpet cleaning company is willing to invest more in their equipment then the average home owner. Keep in mind that the investments made by professional carpet cleaning companies are for institutional accounts. This means the equipment they have are designed to handle any type of cleaning or maintenance requirement. They need to have quality suction, as they clean carpets every day. Many households have their own cleaning equipment but these are not enough to thoroughly clean carpets. That’s because this equipment cannot match the high performance delivered by equipment used by professional cleaners.
4. Carpet cleaning companies have highly-trained, professional staff
Professionals are those who have the experience and expertise yet continue to do the research and development studies to ensure their people are more than qualified to do the job. They are aware of how to use advanced equipment and treat a variety of carpet fabrics. For one thing, all rugs and carpets are different. Not all fabrics should be treated the same. Professionals know how to take care of each kind. Similarly, different stains and spots require different solutions. They will check the makeup of the carpet and proceed accordingly. Getting your carpets cleaned regularly keeps the carpet looking great and prolongs its life. A carpet cleaning company does not only ensure keeping the carpet looking nice but also performs the proper cleaning necessary to keep the carpet looking its best. To ensure carpet is cleaned properly and deep down where all the unwanted material lies, it’s best to hire professional cleaners.
5. Hiring a carpet cleaning company will save you time
When a job is more than just cleaning up a stain, it is time to call in professional help. Professional cleaners will work faster and produce better results. How much do you value your time? How much is stress free time with your children and significant other worth? Would you rather be on your knees scrubbing stubborn stains or out in the park having fun with your family? What about more time to pursue your personal interests? Guilt free relaxation? Your time is precious and you should spend it on things you’re happy to do. That time is certainly worth more than what you would pay a professional to clean your home because time well spent is priceless!
Your home is meant to provide shelter and protection from the elements. But unfortunately, no one can prevent dust, insects and allergens from breaching the security of your household 100% of the time. The best course of action is to maintain the integrity of your premises as frequently as possible. Cleaning your carpet every six (6) months will go a long way in prolonging the life of your carpet and ensuring the health of your family.
