Nothing can beat the feel of a new carpet. However, over time your new carpet can attract stains, flattened areas and even mould and mildew if it’s not cared for properly.

While regular vacuuming and spot stain removal will take care of most of the superficial dirt, to get your carpet really clean you also need to invest in regular deep cleaning.

If you have any doubts about having your carpet professionally cleaned, here are the top 5 benefits of having a clean carpet and how it impacts your house and your health.

Keeps your Home Looking & Feeling Fresh

No matter how nice the rest of your room, a dirty and stained carpet can ruin the feel of an area, and even your whole house. Regular deep cleaning will remove any surface and deeper stains to restore your carpets to their former glory.

Eliminates Trapped Pollutants within your Carpet

While we’re all aware that carpets can trap pet hair and dust, did you know that your carpet can also retain air pollutants such as lead, particle pollution and even cockroach allergens, together with toxic airborne gases that end up adhering to the particles within your carpets?

When you walk on your carpets or use a vacuum, these pollutants can be released into the air. Professional carpet cleaners can drastically reduce the amount of toxins in your carpets.

Reduces the Possibility and Severity of Allergies

If you have someone in your household who suffers from allergies, you’ll know how important it is to keep dust and other allergens to a minimum. While regular hoovering will reduce the quantity of allergens and dust trapped within your carpet, a deep clean will help to remove dust mites, pet hair and any other deep-seated detritus trapped within fibres.

According to the American Lung Association, you should vacuum your carpet at least three times weekly if you have anyone in the house that suffers from asthma or other breathing problems, and steam clean your carpets at least once a year to get rid of deep-seated dirt and allergens.

Reduces the Chance of Mould Developing within your Carpet

In areas of high humidity, it’s more likely that mould will take hold if your carpets are dirty. Regular professional cleaning will help prevent mould and mildew growth by using techniques that remove as much moisture as possible from carpet fibres.

Helps your Carpet Last Longer

By scheduling regular deep cleaning, you’ll also help to extend the life of your carpet. A clean carpet is less likely to wear as fast as one that doesn’t receive a thorough clean. Therefore, regular cleaning will increase its life span and save you money in the long run.

In fact, with proper care, you’re likely to want to change your carpet to match new décor before it wears out.

As you can see, deep cleaning is a must if you want to keep your carpets looking and feeling good. However, it’s also extremely beneficial for your health and the health of your loved ones. If your carpets haven’t been professionally cleaned in the last twelve months, it’s time to book a professional clean now.
