When to Have Your Carpets Cleaned
Particles and allergens will always be absorbed by your carpets due to usual day-to-day use or by having pets in the home. Carpets require a baseline cleaning schedule to maintain their appearance and prolong their lifespan. There are many things that will get built up in your carpets over time including allergens such as dust and pollen, third-hand smoke, mould if there has been water damage untreated and bacteria that has collected over time.
Allergens such as pollen, dust and animal fur or hair can easily get built up in your carpets over time. This is because the carpet is the first place the dust settles in a home and if your windows are left open on a day in spring, the pollen from the outside will easily enter and settle on your carpets. The best way to combat these types of particles getting built up in your carpets is to ensure a regular vacuuming schedule is employed in your property. Other more tricky things that can build up in your carpets or underlying structures could be mould. Mould grows in damp environments where there is humidity as well as low ventilation. If you’ve experienced water damage to your carpets, ensure that a professional clean-up is performed to avoid moisture build up over time and the development of mould in your carpets.
Keeping your carpets clean is part of a daily schedule to keep your home or property free from pollutants and irritants and having the best vacuum cleaner can make your job a whole lot easier. Buying a vacuum probably isn’t something you do often, so you need to do research first on which features you require and the best models suited to clean your carpets. Choosing the right vacuum for your needs will provide a significant difference in keeping not just your carpet clean but also your home. For the pollutants that you can’t see as well as bacteria build up over time, a professional carpet cleaning is required every now and then. If there are pet stains, food stains or other stains that have built up in your carpets we highly recommend getting a professional carpet clean as soon as you can, to prevent bacteria growth and other complications.
Before you commence cleaning your carpets with a professional deep steam clean, choose a company who distinguishes between cleaning solutions that are working harder and cleaning solutions that are working smarter. You want to understand the chemicals that are being used to treat your carpets for the specific stains and day-to-day use. When you choose Kleen-Tech, you are choosing cleaning solutions that not only effectively clean your carpets but also extends the life of your carpets.
Well, here’s the good news. Keeping our home healthier doesn’t have to be difficult. For a general home without pets, we recommend a deep steam clean once a year or when you see required. For a home with pets and pet stains we recommend performing a deep steam clean as required to ensure that no bacteria is spread. For offices and large building workspaces usually once every six months is ok to preserve the carpets and remove any allergens along the way. The recommended frequency to deep steam clean your carpets depends on the area, the day-to-day use and your own personal preferences.
