What's Hiding in Your Carpet?
You vacuum regularly, attend to stains straight away and although your carpet may look clean, it could still be home to dirt, dust mite residue and general grossness that’s enough to make you queasy. In fact, your carpet could be holding more than four times it’s weight in dirt – that’s dirt so deep your regular vacuum simply cannot get to it. Now we don’t mean to be alarmists here at Geelong’s Cleanest Carpets but YOUR carpet is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, fleas, mould and dust mites to thrive and survive. Don’t get us started on what all that means for those of us with allergies…
So what do we suggest to truly get clean carpets? Obviously the best way to is to have them professionally deep cleaned by a quality carpet cleaning company every 6 to 12 months (more frequently if you have pets and young children). A professional steam clean will extract pollutants from your carpets using proven carpet cleaning techniques and specialised detergents. This is the quick fix but by no means is this the most important step in having clean carpet – it’s all about maintenance and regular care. The better your carpet is maintained throughout the year, the easier it will be to professionally clean and you’ll get a longer lifespan out of your carpet.
