Reasons to Have Your Carpets Cleaned

You vacuum every week – often more than once a week and all the dust and bits are hoovered up. No stains are apparent, so why do you need to have a professional carpet clean?  Here’s what the NCCA National Carpet Cleaners Association says:

Hygiene, Bacteria & Carpet Mites

Just as the clothes we wear need regular washing to keep them fresh and hygienic, our carpets and upholstered furniture require periodic cleaning.

Accumulated soil and grit are major causes of reduced carpet and fabric life, and enable destructive and health harmful mites and bacteria to work unchecked.

Cleaning costs are minimal when you consider the replacement cost of carpets and furnishings, so regular cleaning makes economic sense too.

85% of grime is invisible to the eye

Little do most of us realise that what we are seeing is only a tiny fraction of the soil that a carpet contains.

The visible grime we notice is only the tip of the iceberg; up to 85 per cent of the dirt the carpet holds is buried deep within the pile.

An average carpet can eventually trap its own weight or more in soil – as much as 150 lbs for an average-sized living-room – it’s no trivial matter.

Professional Carpet Cleaning Provides:

A more hygienic environment – Complete removal of general dust, soil and accumulated debris.

Improved appearance – Even the oldest of carpets and furniture can look brand new following professional cleaning.

Elimination of mites and bacteria – Reducing the risk of allergies, mould and many other potential problems.

Deodorisation – Most odours can be eliminated by general professional cleaning and NCCA members can offer specialist treatments to ensure a fresh, clean smelling carpet.
