If you think that you already deep clean your carpets at home, then think again. Like most people, I vacuum my carpets at least three times a week and thought that was adequate. But sadly, I now know that this is not strictly true. To thoroughly clean your carpets you need to get them deep cleaned.
I honestly thought that my carpets were clean. It was only when I had them professionally deep cleaned that I realized they were embarrassingly filthy.
Deep cleaning is important for many reasons, which I will tell you about in more detail below. I will also give you some tips on how you can easily care for your carpet in between sessions.
The deep clean makes carpets look better
One of the biggest reasons that people decide to deep clean their carpets is because they are stained. This is the reason I hired the services of a professional company, as my carpets looked terrible. There were wine stains, coffee stains and dried mud. None of this was helped by the fact that I stupidly bought a cream colored carpet ( before the arrival of a dog and 2 children) you soon learn.
Now that my carpets have been thoroughly cleaned, they look new. My best friend thought I HAD bought new carpet. So deep cleaning really does give them a new lease of life.
They smell fresher
Deep cleaning your carpet really does make them odor free. I have two small children, so obviously we have had our share of ‘accidents’ including pee and vomit on the carpet. Even though I thought I had got rid of the smells, in fact they had been lingering.
They will be more hygienic
Deep cleaning will get rid of everything. This includes pet hairs, dirt, crumbs, skin cells and those stubborn stains. More importantly though the harmful bacteria and pollutants that could have been festering away in your carpet is also removed. These are dangerous to your health and those of your children, especially if they sit and play on the floor.
They will last longer
Having your carpets regularly deep cleaned twice a year will make them last longer. This is a fact! The carpet with regular deep cleans becomes stain resistant. The fibres will be better maintained and your carpet will feel better.
Tips to look after your carpet in between the deep clean:
- Clean up spills straight away. They will be removed more easily.
- Hoover at least once a week, but more if you have pets.
- Hoover properly, which means getting into al of the corners of the room and pulling out furniture.
- Do not wear shoes in the house, leave them at the door.
So, there are really a lot of benefits to deep carpet cleaning. Your carpets will look good, last longer but most importantly will be hygienically clean. For best results you really need to hire a professional carpet cleaning service. I did, and I am so glad that I made this decision. I never want to have dirty and unclean carpets again.
