October 24th, 2019 | by Angelo |    0   

How often should carpets be cleaned? Is professional carpet cleaning really necessary? Is it worth the cost? For such a simple field, there’s a surprising amount of confusion around the carpet cleaning industry. To help debunk the myths surrounding dirty carpets, the carpet cleaning technicians at Angelo’s have put together a blog that provides some surprising answers to surprisingly common questions.

Professional Carpet Cleaning Company

Is carpet cleaning necessary if I vacuum regularly?

Yes. A carpet can still be incredibly dirty even if it looks clean on the surface. Carpets can harbour harmful allergens, such as mould and dust mites, deep within their fibres, and these will stay put regardless of how much it’s vacuumed. While routine vacuuming works well for surface debris, a professional carpet cleaning session is typically needed at least once a year to keep a carpet truly clean and healthy.

Can I rent a machine to clean my carpets?

Possibly, if you know what you’re doing. The lure of a low-fee rental can be irresistible, but if the machine saturates your carpets with water that’s improperly removed, you could end up with more problems than you started with. While carpet cleaning machines can be helpful, not all carpets tolerate shampooing. Moreover, many of these machines can leave behind a residue that builds up, turning carpets into magnets for future dust and dirt. Professional carpet cleaners don’t employ a one-size-fits-all approach. They look at the problem areas of your flooring and propose the best solutions for your home.

Is professional carpet cleaning really worth the cost?

Yes. Regular carpet cleaning works to preserve the beauty and longevity of your carpets and rugs. As particles of dust and dirt become embedded and ground in, they can discolour and shred the fibres. Over time, this translates into fading and fraying. Not calling in professional cleaners every so often actively reduces the lifespan of a carpet. Although working with professional carpet cleaners is not cheap, it’s more cost-effective than regularly replacing carpets and rugs.
