Carpet Cleaning

Carpets Can Get Dirty, Fast

In a household with high traffic, children and/or pets, carpets tend to get soiled or stained quite often, but even in quieter homes, periodic carpet cleaning is recommended. Carpet cleaning is necessary to remove dust and other pollutants that tend to accumulate in the fibers, as well as the occasional spill that can stain the carpet.

While you can rent a steam cleaner in a supermarket and attempt to clean things up yourself, nothing replaces the thorough deep cleaning provided by a professional Carpet Cleaning Contractor. Their professional-grade equipment, along with their expertise will guarantee the great deep cleaning you expect.

“Dry” Cleaning vs. Deep Steaming

There is a lot of controversy surrounding these two professional cleaning methods. They both have their pros and cons, so we recommend you talk to your Carpet Cleaning professional and ask many questions about the method they use before you make up your mind.

  • Professional steam cleaning is often the preferred method, especially in households with small children, because it uses nothing but water, in the form of high-pressure vapor. The vapor penetrates every layer of the carpet and pad to lift dirt and stains and kill dust and carpet mites that might be lodged in the fibers. The only caveat is that it might take more time to dry.
  • "Dry" Cleaning- uses different chemicals to clean the carpet which might be a concern for people with sensitivities or homes with small children. It also uses less water, so it tends to dry faster. It is probably more suitable for newly carpeted areas than for carpets that have been installed years ago because it doesn't reach as deep into the layers as a professional-grade steamer.

Should I replace my carpet or just have it professionally cleaned?

When it comes to carpet cleaning itself, the frequency tends to depend on household size and traffic, but it is recommended that homeowners have the carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year. When looking at their carpet, homeowners must decide if they can go for a professional carpet cleaning or if the whole carpet would be better off getting a replacement. This decision is based on several factors, including the type of carpet and fibers, traffic in different areas of the house, presence of stain or odors, age and general conditions of the carpet. Well maintained carpets can last from 5 to 15 years on average. So provided that the carpet is not irreparably damaged, stained, smelly or too old, professional carpet cleaning should make it look like brand new, for a fraction of the cost of carpet replacement,
