The arrival of spring often symbolizes a time to renew and refresh one’s surroundings. Both homeowners and property managers often take this time to deep clean inside and really get at some of the dirt that’s built up over the year. Things that often get neglected during other times such as windows and walls, are finally getting their due. One item that really needs your attention? Your carpets!
Think about it. Every day, people are tracking in dirt and bacteria from outside even if they don’t mean to. Where do pet hair, dust and other particles all settle? And what happens when you spill food or drink? It all ends up on the carpet. In fact, carpets can hold up to four times their weight in dirt. Yuck! If that’s not enough to convince you to have yours cleaned regularly, here are three more reasons why.
1) Prolong your Carpet Life
Preventative maintenance is a lot easier on you and your wallet than having to replace your carpets sooner than expected. Regular cleanings can help extend the life of your carpets, and make it easier to take care of them in between cleanings.
Think of it like going to the dentist. Regular check-ups ensure any problems are spotted in a timely manner and make it easier for you to keep your teeth clean and healthy in between appointments. Similarly, when buildup is regularly removed, most dry soils can then easily be picked up with a simple vacuuming. Additionally, getting rid of any stains or spots periodically will ensure that they don’t attract more soiling (or permanently damage your carpet).
2) Stop Buildup Before It Causes Problems
Not only can buildup negatively affect your carpet and the cleanliness of your home or office, it can also affect your health. When pollutants get trapped in the fibers and are allowed to build up over a long period of time, your indoor air quality could actually suffer. Those with sensitive allergies especially might notice this.
You might also be surprised to learn what exactly could be lurking in your carpets. Some of the most common contaminants that can be found include norovirus, mold, dust mites and pollen. While taking off your shoes (in a home that is – you probably can’t go barefoot at work) can help keep carpets clean, the best way to make sure these nasty things aren’t accumulating is to have your carpets professionally cleaned.
3) Keep Your Warranty
Carpets are expensive, so many come with warranties to help protect you. If you’re not aware, most of these warranties are conditional upon having them properly cleaned periodically, usually every 12 to 18 months. As mentioned above, this will also help extend your carpet life, so it’s really a win-win! You’ll have peace of mind that your warranty will remain valid, all while reducing the likelihood that you will need it in the first place.
Clearly there are several practical reasons why getting your carpets regularly cleaned is a great idea for you, your building and your health. However, it’s also worth mentioning that carpets that feel fresh and look clean can just make you happier overall! Whether it’s workers in an office building or babies at home, everyone deserves a clean environment – and that starts with your carpets.
