Spring is here, lets get those carpets clean! I know what you’re all thinking, who could be bothered with the hassle of carpet cleaning in Craigieburn in the middle of Winter? Well if your carpets weren’t soaking wet for hours after they were cleaned and they smelt as fresh as a spring day would you reconsider?
I have managed to stay busy all Winter long with my system of carpet cleaning which focuses much more on the extraction of dust in the first stage of cleaning. Most carpets more than a couple of years old show the early signs of wear and tear. Carpet in your hallways, stairs and doorways will always show wear and tear more quickly than areas less trodden. The reason besides the obvious is that the sharp shards of dust and dirt collect in these more frequented areas and as more traffic passes through the pressure of footsteps compressing and twisting these particles, begins to cut the fibres of your carpets pile.
Now those of you who vacuum regularly are on the right path to prolonging the life of your carpet, however if you were to have your carpets extracted and cleaned every six months your carpet’s lifespan could practically double. The reason being that not only is there less chance of your pile being cut in heavy traffic areas but the crystal polymer shampoo used with encapsulation carpet cleaning acts as a scotch guard for every fibre of your carpet. Regular vacuuming after encapsulation cleaning is more effective also because dirt is unable to fall deep within your carpets pile.
Steam cleaning your carpet in Winter can leave you with a few problems, If not done correctly steam cleaning can leave you carpet sopping wet for hours and in some extreme cases where the area is poorly ventilated it can actually take days for your carpet to dry properly. Not only can this be a problem when you are left stranded in the non carpeted areas of your own home for hours, it can be a bigger problem if mould and bacteria sets in leaving your carpet in more of a hazardous state than before you began.
Why am I constantly sneezing? Why does my asthma play up as soon as I walk in the door? Is the state of my carpet part of the problem? Why not get one step ahead this allergy season and make your home a safe, allergy free zone for you and your family.
