There’s a perception that Americans are obsessing over cleanliness, and in some situations that may be true. In others, it is perfectly warranted. Carpets and rugs should be cleaned periodically and few would argue that, considering everything that comes in contact with these items. Cleaning will prolong the life of a carpet, and it will improve the quality of air in the space which ultimately benefits everyone in the area. Subjectively feeling of cleanliness, smell and look, should also be taken into consideration.
- There are many different things that are hiding in your carpet such as bugs, mold, pollen and feces.
- Rookie mistakes with regards to carpet cleaning include over-wetting the carpet, using too much shampoo and voiding warranties.
- If you want to get your carpet cleaned, consider renting a carpet cleaner to get the job done.
“If you consider what travels across your carpets and rugs each day, it is astounding that they look as good as they do. Shoes that have walked across highly-traveled areas, including public restrooms, pets that have played in the dog park and dribbled food or drinks from both kids and adults. Also, consider that whatever is in your yard is likely in your carpet as well, such as dirt, dust and other allergens.”
