Okay, so vacuuming your carpet may not be a complete waste of time, of course it removes surface dirt, crumbs, fluff etc and has the added benefit of a home workout, but vacuums are sneaky and like to give the illusion of being more than they actually are…
You wouldn’t be alone in thinking that vacuuming your carpet is cleaning it too. The good news is that it’s recommended that you only need to vacuum your carpet once a week, the bad news is that it doesn’t do all you may think it does. Dragging the vacuum around the house like a stubborn pet is a chore to most (unless you’re one of those people who actually enjoy housework…eh, fair play) The results of vacuuming can give your carpet that clean, swishy, fluffy look with the obvious bits of dirt gone. However, looks can be deceiving and that’s where professional carpet cleaners come in.
Let’s be honest, most people don’t vacuum slowly, taking care to reach every nook and cranny or even move all the furniture. Even if you do take your time, vacuuming alone will not give the same results as a professional cleaning or the added health benefits either. Having your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year (more if you have furry family members) can remove 90% more dust, allergens and pet dander than vacuuming alone. It will also improve the overall indoor air quality in your home.
Professional carpet cleaning means easier vacuuming
When you’ve had your carpet professionally cleaned, you will be offered an after care protective treatment. Unlike trying to dodge the usually aftercare sales pitch, protective carpet treatments are worth their weight in gold. This treatment is applied to the carpet after cleaning and forms a barrier that resists future staining and premature wear. The carpet fibres become more resistant to staining and dirt, making it easier for you to vacuum in future…how amazing is that!
Why pay someone to do a job you can do yourself?
If you want a job done right, do it yourself…unless it’s carpet cleaning, then hire the professionals!
Professional carpet cleaners are just that – professionals. You’re paying for their expertise, knowledge and the peace of mind that the job will be done correctly. DIY carpet cleaning can in fact cause more harm than good. Carpet steaming done incorrectly can create mould thus destroying your carpet costing you more money in the long run. Pleasant smelling carpet shampoos are great for in between professional cleans to freshen up your home, but they only disguise dirty carpets if that’s what they are constantly sprinkled on.
So the moral of the story – back away from the ‘Carpet Cleaning for Dummies’ and book with the professionals. Renew Carpet Cleaning use state of the art cleaning equipment and each job is carried out by a fully trained technician, using only Eco-friendly cleaning products. Therefore the results are clean, fresh carpet and a healthier home for you and your family.
