With the Coronavirus all over the news and flu season at an all-time high, it’s important not to forget to clean your carpets. Whether it’s the flu, stomach bug or something far scarier, the clean-up process is almost as important as staying hydrated and getting enough rest. The same germs that make you sick are still lurking around your home, on your couch and in your carpet. A rigorous carpet and upholstery cleaning will help remove any viruses and bacteria in your house.
Carpet is notorious for becoming a home for allergens and dust particles. They are the perfect breeding ground for allergens and bacteria, so regular carpet cleaning is essential. So not only will having your carpets cleaned help remove bacteria but will help remove these allergens which helps anyone in your home who suffers from breathing problems.
A home and/or office can’t just “look” clean if the carpets aren’t actually clean. Vacuuming regularly is a great way to remove the build up of soil debris and dirt, however, a regular deep cleaning is also needed. This helps to get tough stains out and you will appreciate the look and feel of the carpets. This also helps to improve the overall smell of carpets. Even more so if you have pets and/or children living in your home. Steam cleaning is a great option if you want a fresh smelling carpet.
Since we are indoors so much through the winter, April seems to be the prime time for a thorough cleaning. This ties in with spring cleaning, so it’s no surprise that professional carpet cleaners see a huge rise in appointments in the early spring months. Winter months combined with holidays and lots of guests in houses (spills and stains after gatherings) and more foot traffic than normal, it’s no wonder that more soil and dirt build up in the carpet. Since we are all in our house more so now than ever, what a great time to give your carpets a little love! Run that vacuum more often, grab a carpet deodorizer in your next online grocery order or even invest in an at-home steam cleaner. Get those carpets looking their best.
