‘Isn’t there a grand stretch in the evenings?’ Well, once you’ve heard this, you know spring is officially here! Lots of us enjoy giving our homes a ‘good’ yearly spring clean. Unlike the mundane weekly chores, spring cleaning can be quite therapeutic.
Clearing out wardrobes, toy boxes and giving the windows a clean, so they don’t give the illusion of constant hazy rain, are usually top of people’s lists. However, most forgotten are the real culprits – carpets and upholstery. These harbour the most of winter’s germs and bacteria and in order to get rid of them efficiently, calling in the professionals is a must…
Below are Renew’s top 6 reasons for having your carpets and upholstery professionally spring cleaned.
Carpets are left clean and healthy!
With the winter months comes mud, dirt and everything else disgusting that gets trotted through your carpets. Regular vacuuming gets rid of the surface dirt, but it’s the germs and bacteria that lurk underneath that cause the real problems. Not only do they omit bad odours, but they can cause health problems such as coughs, colds and asthma flare ups to name but a few. Renew carpet cleaning can remove 98% of all germs and bacteria leaving your carpets clean, but more importantly, healthy.
Professional spring cleaning means a healthier home
When we ‘whack’ on the heating during the winter months our home becomes toasty for us, but a breeding ground for bacteria. This bacteria in upholstery and carpets can cause health problems for family members and guests, such as trigger allergies, skin reactions and asthma flare-ups. Having this bacteria along with dust and allergens removed, can give you peace of mind that your home is healthy and bright just like the months ahead.
Extend the life of your curtains
When spring arrives, there’s nothing like pulling across the curtains and throwing open the windows. The bright sky and fresh air can do wonders for our mood, however dirty curtains can do the opposite for our health. Dirt, dust and bacteria builds up on upholstery during the winter months and doesn’t discriminate against curtains. Opening curtains dislodges all these nasties, and leaves them floating around the air. Curtains can be deceiving as they don’t often look dirty or have noticeable stains, but they’re a playground for germs none the less. Having your curtains professionally cleaned will not only prolong their longevity, but improve the overall indoor air quality in your home.
Pet friendly home:
The cold winter months has our pets spending more times indoors. Pet dander can build up on their favourite places to relax – usually couches, rugs, or the carpet in general. Having your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned will remove 98% of pet dander that vacuuming can leave behind. It will also remove urine and neutralise any bad odours.
Tile & Grout
Deep cleaning bathrooms is usually top of the spring cleaning list. However, there is only so much you can do with a cocktail of cleaning products, a pair of rubber gloves and a YouTube tutorial on how to remove mould from tiles. It’s obvious that any bathroom would have lots of germs, but those that stick on and between tiles are the most unsightly and health hazardous. There is only one way to get rid of them properly and that’s by calling in the professionals. Renew’s trained technicians use state of the art equipment and advanced techniques to ensure your tile & grout is given the ultimate spring clean.
Peace of mind for your family
Spring cleaning usually means stocking up on cleaning products – bleach, sprays and anything that promises to make your home sparkle. As consumers we have become more package savvy, taking time to read contents and ,well, sometimes just picking something because it smells nice. However many people think that professional cleaning companies need to use harsh chemicals to achieve their promised results. Renew use only Eco-friendly solutions, which are FDA approved and safe for your family and pets. We are also recognised by the Carpet & Rug Institute (Gold seal of approval) and use Wool safe approved products for all carpets.
Whether it’s carpets, upholstery, tile & grout or even mattresses – Renew look after them all. So, spring into action this season and book your spring cleaning today with Renew, you’ll be delighted you did!
