Have pesky stains or damaged fibres ruined your carpet? If so, you don’t have to throw it out just yet! Not all dirty and damaged carpets need to be replaced. In fact, most people throw out their carpets years before they need to. In this article, we’ll show you how you can avoid replacing your carpet with professional carpet cleaning services instead.
What Can Professional Carpet Cleaning Do?
Remove the Stubborn Stains You Can’t
One of the negatives of having carpet is that it can easily stain. And some stains – red wine, coffee, ink, baby and pet-related stains – can seem next to impossible to get out of the fibres once they’ve set. Using store-bought stain removers only work well on fresh stains, not one’s that have been sitting around for a few days. To completely remove any embedded stains, you need a professional-grade hot water extraction system. This method used by professional carpet cleaners injects hot water and high-grade cleaning agents into the fibres at high pressure to lift heavy-duty stains without damaging the carpet.
Prevents Mold Growth
Mold not only grows on dirty carpets overtime, but it can also form when you clean the carpet and leave moisture on the fibres. Fortunately, you don’t have to throw out a moldy carpet. All you need to do is hire a professional carpet cleaner in Ottawa to properly remove the mold with low moisture equipment and encapsulation drying techniques. This specialized equipment allows the fibres to dry and return to their natural state quickly, which helps protect the carpet and improve the appearance.
Mold isn’t the only allergen that can take over your carpet. Dust mites, pet dander and bacteria can also move in and cause significant allergic reactions. What few people realize is that the store-bought carpet cleaners don’t come equipped with sanitizing systems that can get rid of the allergens and mold spores that live in your carpet. You need a professional-grade carpet cleaning machine to remove allergens and disinfect the carpet, and only expert carpet cleaners have these on hand.
Completely Removes Dirt and Mud
You may think your vacuum is doing a good job of picking up all the dirt that gets trampled through your home, but it’s likely only picking up the dirt on the immediate surface. Regular vacuum cleaners are often not strong enough to capture all the debris that gets embedded into the fibres. The result – odours, bacteria and dirt build-up over time. Professional carpet cleaning equipment can remove all the dirt and debris no matter how deeply embedded it is.
Extends the Lifespan
Most importantly, having your carpet professionally cleaned will extend the lifespan and keep it looking new for years to come. Those pesky issues we discussed above – dust, allergens and pollutants – can actually do more than impact your health. They also cause the fibres to split and deteriorate over time. By having your carpet regularly cleaned, you can prevent this from happening. Professional carpet cleaners use specialized cleaning methods that remove the debris deep within the fibres and restore it to its original glory.
Never replace your carpet without talking to a professional first.
