To maintain the carpet’s appearance and fluff the fibers to improve its lifespan, homeowners are frequently advised to vacuum regularly. However, even with frequent vacuuming, it is not enough, and professional deep cleaning is still recommended at least once a year. With this in mind, we at Steam Masters would like share why vacuuming is not a replacement for deep professional cleaning in Orange County, CA.
Can Bacteria Live in Carpet?
It is critical, especially in these times, that you keep your home as germ-free as possible. Homes need to be disinfected more often than usual. Where vacuuming helps significantly with the condition of your carpets, it cannot be disinfected and spraying Lysol on your carpeting won’t do much good. Ultimately, a professional deep clean is the only way to rid your carpet of bacteria. To remove harmful bacteria that can make you sick is what professional cleaning agents the pros use is specially designed to remove.
Does Carpet Cleaning Reduce Allergens?
Allergens like dust, pollen and pet dander are also a concern in addition to bacteria. Vacuuming alone won’t get rid of them and allergens make life miserable for anyone with bad allergies. Scheduling professional carpet cleaning is the primary solution to ensure everyone is breathing well. We can also work on upholstery to remove any allergens embedded in those fibers, on top of cleaning carpets.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
All that built-up dust and debris doesn’t just remain in the carpet’s fibers, unfortunately. Instead, it spreads allergens and bacteria throughout the entire house since it also of it floats in the air. To prevent this from happening vacuuming won’t do a thing. To resolve this problem and improve your overall air quality, hiring a team of professionals is the most effective solution.
Remove Old Spots & Stains from Carpet
Especially if you vacuum soon after a spill happens, vacuuming can remove some dirt from the fibers. Your vacuum is not capable of lifting any old spots and stains unfortunately. In Orange County, the only thing that can help is professional home carpet cleaning. Our experts can clean it and have your carpet looking as good as new, no matter if it is an old stain from spilled wine or dropped food.
Validating Carpet Warranty
If anything goes wrong within the first few years, your carpet should have some kind of manufacturer’s warranty that offers repair or replacement. Because there’s probably a stipulation that the carpet must be professionally cleaned, be sure to read the fine print. To keep the warranty intact, manufacturers typically want the carpet to have a deep clean every 18 to 24 months.
Extend the Life of Carpet
As mentioned, vacuuming can fluff the carpet fibers and prolong its lifespan, however, vacuuming on its own doesn’t help as much as professional cleaning. To make your carpet look a lot newer while ensuring it lasts for years to come, a deep clean really lifts those fibers up.
