Having a clean home is vital to your family’s health. However, a house that looks clean isn’t always totally clean. The truth is, cleaning your carpets with a vacuum or even a home steam cleaner doesn’t give it the deep clean it needs. Even if your carpets look clean to you, they could be hiding hazardous germs and allergens that are putting your family’s health at risk. To really get your carpets clean, you need a professional carpet cleaning.
Spots and Stains
When you spill food or drinks on your carpet, you’re creating more of a problem than what’s simply visible. Cleaning up a spot still leaves behind a deep-seated stain, even if everything seems to be cleaned up quickly. When a spill occurs, the mess soaks into the carpet, staining several layers at once and even possibly reaching the flooring beneath your carpets. When you vacuum or spot clean your carpet, you’re only cleaning the first few layers. Only a professional carpet cleaning can remove the deep stains and leave your carpet truly clean and healthy.
When spills and stains occur, it’s likely that moisture has made its way down to the flooring beneath your carpets. The hardwood or wooden supports underneath then become a hotbed for mold activity. Mold thrives in moist places and can survive in any kind of temperature. So even though you’ve cleaned the spill from the top layer, if it had the time to reach the bottom layer of your carpet, it can attract and spread mold.
Once mold starts to develop under your carpet, it’s a hassle to get rid of it. Often the removal process includes removing portions of the carpet and then installing new. In some cases, the carpet may need to be fully replaced. The faster you have a professional carpet cleaning in your home, the less time and money you’ll have to spend in the future on repairs and restoration.
Other things can become trapped in your carpet without you knowing. Dust and allergens can become stuck in carpet fibers, especially if you have thicker fiber carpets. When particles become trapped in your carpet, a vacuum alone can’t remove them. Only the heat and power of a professional steam cleaning can loosen the dirt and remove the hazards from your home.
Your carpets can look clean but hide hazards under the surface. Home cleanings only clean the first few layers of a carpet. It takes a professional carpet cleaning to reach all layers of the carpet and truly clean them. Insight Restoration can provide the peace of mind your family needs of having a clean and healthy home.
