Why You Really Need to Spring Clean Your CarpetsMar 12th, 2019 | by Angelo | 0
It’s that time of year again. Spring is around the corner and that means spring cleaning. But while it’s important to dust, organize, and clean all the big-ticket items, it’s important to remember your carpets. As a Vancouver carpet cleaner, the cleaning technicians at Angelo’s warn clients that carpeting can be a hotbed of bacteria, pollen, dead skin and dust—and this can pile on to conditions like allergies and asthma when the weather changes.
Carpets that look and smell nice aren’t the big concern. Dirty carpeting can be harmful to a person’s health. While there’s a potential for bacterial infection, allergies are a more common concern. Pollen and dust can cause respiratory issues, and an uncleaned carpet can be a reservoir of allergens that get kicked up into the air whenever someone walks across a room.
The average indoor carpet is about 4000 times dirtier than a toilet seat and can have as much as 200,000 bacteria on it per square inch. Add components like skin cells, human and pet hair, and it’s obvious why spring cleaning has to include your carpets.
Regular vacuuming can help deal with the problem, but it’s not always enough. While vacuuming about once a week is recommended to keep these things under control, a good deep cleaning by a professional carpet cleaner once a year has a significant impact on the state of your carpets inside the home.
Of course, it’s possible to rent a carpet cleaning system, but those can cause more problems if misused. For example, leave behind too much moisture and mould could begin to grow.
Good maintenance and proper carpet cleaning are essential to the longevity and appearance of your carpets and area rugs. The technicians at Angelo’s used high powered industrial-scale equipment along with potent, eco-friendly cleanser to provide professional carpet cleaning in Vancouver at a reasonable cost.
It’s essential to have carpets professionally cleaned after a winter of tracking muck, debris, salt and dirt inside the home. To schedule a spring carpet cleaning session with the technicians at Angelo's Carpet Cleaning, contact us or request a free quote.
