Why Your Carpet May Not Be As Clean As You Think!

Carpet cleaning in HalifaxYour carpet may not be as clean as you think. What you see on the surface pales into insignificance compared to what may be hidden deep down in the pile. Like an iceberg, most of the problem is hidden!

Carpets can hold as much as four times their weight in dirt, possibly more. Carpets feel luxurious underfoot due to the pile, but it’s the pile that traps and holds on to all manner of grime including pet hair, pet urine, dead skin cells, dust, dust mites, insect faeces, insect husks, bacteria and mould. These can cause allergies in many people.

Another problem with the dirt deep down in carpets is that it can cause your carpet to smell. No matter how much you vacuum it, you won’t be able to get rid of odours left behind from pet accidents or food spillages as they will often soak into the carpet backing.

So as you can see, it’s important that you clean your carpets regularly. Vacuuming at least once or twice a week is ideal for general cleanliness but it may not be enough to reach dirt that has managed to penetrate deep down into your carpet.

Professional carpet cleaning in Halifax and surrounding areas

Professional carpet cleaning can reach the dirt and debris that your vacuum cleaner can’t.
You may not think that your carpets are dirty, but after vacuuming, pull the pile back and you will see the dust, dirt and debris that escaped.

Professional carpet cleaning uses powerful surfactants that make the dirt easy to lift from the carpet pile coupled with powerful suction that will leave your carpet clean right down to the base of the pile. This level of cleaning is not something that is easily acheived using a vacuum cleaner or even a DIY carpet shampooing machine, at least, not without soaking the carpet through, which can cause all sorts of problems with your carpet.
