The carpets in your home are put through a beating every day. They are walked on, sat on, food is dropped on them and mud from outside is ground in. There are times when you obviously need a carpet cleaning, but there are other times when it’s not as clear. Here are a few of the more subtle hints that it’s time to call in the professionals and give your carpets the spa treatment.
What’s that Smell?
Are you walking around the house trying to pinpoint the source of that faint odor? It’s not overwhelming, but it’s there all the same. You’ve checked the dishcloths, made sure laundry is taken care of and it’s still there. Try taking a whiff of your carpet. That persistent odor could be the result of stains, bacteria, and allergens that have penetrated into the fibers and will have to be soaked out with professional treatment.
Most allergies are seasonal. They kick up when the pollen count is high and then settle down again as the season moves forward. If you are suffering from allergy symptoms throughout the year, the allergens could be embedded in your carpet. Another culprit could be tiny dust mites that are living the high life in your carpet. Professional cleaning can remove these allergens and provide you with the relief you need.
The Mysterious Reappearing Stain
You know that your dog had accident in front of the couch, and you’ve cleaned it three times. Just when you think it’s gone and start to relax, the faint discoloration starts to return. You would call it better than a Vegas magic act if it wasn’t occurring in your living room. The problem is that the urine goes deep into the padding. As the top layers of carpet are cleaned and dried, that residual urine starts to wick up towards the surface. The good news is that we have machines with powerful suction and cleaners that can neutralize the urine and pull it out of the carpet. With our services, the magic trick will finally finish and your carpet will be clean.
Check the Calendar
Carpets should be cleaned on an annual basis to ensure that all the dirt, dust and allergens are removed. Look at the calendar. If it’s been more than a year since you had the professionals treat your carpet, you might want to make an appointment to have them cleaned. If you have pets or active children who are still mastering the art of wiping their feet, then you may want to have them cleaned more frequently.
The Colors are Muted
Even if you are diligent about vacuuming and treating spills, your carpet can still get dirty. As the weeks and month pass by, the dirt that your vacuum misses starts to settle on fibers and coats them. Your carpet will start to look dingy with muted colors. If you look at your carpet and feel like it just looks bland, then you should make an appointment to have it cleaned.
Whether you are suffering from allergies or just want your carpet brightened for a party, a professional carpet cleaning can make all the difference. Have the carpets cleaned annually to keep them smelling fresh and looking their best.
