What Does Carpet Cleaning Mean?
Some people hear the phrase carpet cleaning and think vacuuming. And it’s true: regularly vacuuming is essential to keeping your carpets looking fresh and in good repair. However, even the best vacuums can’t get all of the dirt, grease and grime that accumulates out of the carpet. Some particulate matter falls down deep into the fibers; sometimes materials are sticky and bond with the carpeting materials.
Carpet cleaning involves the use of specialized machinery and products to lift and eliminate the embedded dirt, grease and grime from your carpet. Even a carpet that is vacuumed daily will still have grit and grime to be removed via carpet cleaning.
What are the Benefits of Carpet Cleaning?
A freshly cleaned carpet looks and smells great. People look down far more often than they look up. When the carpets are stained, scuffed, or just looking tired and worn down, they notice. When the carpets have vibrant color and a fresh clean appearance, they notice that too – and they smile.
Additionally, carpeting is not the cheapest thing in the world. When there’s accumulated dirt, grease, and grime embedded in the surface of the carpet, the fibers begin to break down. Wear marks develop quickly and the useful length of the carpet can be shortened significantly. When the carpets are professionally cleaned, the fibers are protected from the damaging effects of dirt, grease, and grime. The carpeting lasts longer, which means you have to replace it less often. That’s great news for the budget!
