Did you know that the typical homeowner’s carpet has about 200,000 bacteria in every square inch! Yeah, that’s 4,000 times as much bacterium than is located on your toilet seat. Kind of makes you want to leave your socks on doesn’t it? This bacteria feast is a collection of skin cells, food and drink particles, chemicals, pesticides, pollen, exhaust, and numerous other pollutants all living together in your cozy carpet. It comes from the bottom of your shoes, your clothes, skin, and even your pets. This is why it is so important to have your carpets regularly cleaned by professional carpet cleaning services. Just because your carpet looks clean, doesn’t mean it isn’t hiding harmful germs and bacteria. The only way to be sure that all these germs, mites, and pollutants are actually removed is to have a professional clean your carpets.
Rental Carpet Cleaning Equipment
Sadly, those vacuums that you see for rental or retail carpet shampooers just don’t have what it takes to do a thorough cleaning. Only professional equipment has enough suction power, water pressure, and can reach a high enough temperature to extract and kill the bacteria and germs lurking in your carpet fibers. Every professional knows dozens of techniques the each situation, and also knows that over cleaning or using the wrong chemical solutions can cause damage to your expensive rugs.
Qualified Carpet Cleaners
Of course, not every professional carpet cleaner is created equal. Be sure to find a company that uses qualified, experienced, and certified technicians for that ultimate steam cleaning. You should have this done to your carpets at least once a year, and more often than that if you have indoor pets or small children.
Tips and Techniques To Clean Carpet
A few ways to cut down on the amount of bacteria and grime that accumulates between regularly scheduled cleanings are:
- Regularly vacuum your floors, more if you have pets or small children.
- Don’t wear shoes indoors that are used outdoors.
- Use machine washable rugs in high-traffic areas.
Of course these methods won’t completely eliminate bacteria, only a high temperature steam cleaning can do that, but they will help reduce the amount of new bacteria that grows in your carpet fibers in the meantime. Doing what you can to keep your carpets cleaned and maintaining a professional steam cleaning routine will help keep your home and air cleaner and provide a safer and healthier environment for you and your loved ones.
