Importance of Carpet Cleaning
Out of everything in your home, your carpets get the most amount of traffic and often times, the least amount of attention. This contributes to the buildup of dirt, allergens, and premature wear and tear. Keeping your carpet clean will not only keep it looking fresh, but it will actually help your carpet last a lot longer. The carpet in your home should be professionally cleaned one to two times a year depending on the amount of foot traffic in your home. Here are some of the great advantages of having your carpets cleaned:
Prolongs the life of carpeting
Regular carpet cleaning can significantly increase the life of your carpets. Throughout the life of your carpet, dirt, dust, debris, and allergens build up in your carpet and embed themselves in the fibers. Eventually, this will cause the fibers to split and deteriorate. Removing this build up of gunk will help keep your carpet's fibers strong and leave the carpet feeling and smelling fresh. Because of this, carpet cleaning saves you the money and time that replacing carpet can cost you.

Over time, carpets trap airborne pollutants like pet hair, dander, dust, and other allergens. This often causes respiratory problems, allergic reactions, and can even cause asthmatic episodes. High temperature water in the professional carpet cleaning process kills off these allergens, eliminating the health threat.
