Over the years the carpets in home trap dirt and odors from a wide variety of sources. Eventually you will need to make a decision. The question is, should you replace your carpeting or have it cleaned? The answer to this question depends a lot on your type of carpeting, the condition it is in, and how long it has been since you installed it.
The typical lifespan of a residential carpet is anywhere from three to 25 years depending on the type of fibers used in the carpeting and how it is maintained. It is important to know how long your type of carpet usually lasts to make an informed decision if it is worth cleaning. Regardless of the usable lifespan of a carpet, most carpeting never last that long in real world situations. This is due to the simple fact that the majority of homeowners fail to maintain their carpeting properly.
Clean your carpet to extend its lifespan save money.
For most homeowners it makes sense to have their carpets cleaned as an alternative to replacement. Replacing carpets is not only more costly, but the time it takes for installation is often disruptive to your home life. When you choose Carpet Cleaning; within the space of a single afternoon, you can add years of life to your carpet.
Most professionals suggest cleaning a carpet at least once a year. Remember, vacuuming is not really cleaning. When you use a vacuum, you can only remove surface dirt and dust. A vacuum will not remove the stains and dirt which has worked it way deep into your carpet's fibers. Only a professional cleaner has the equipment and know-how to get your carpets really clean.
How will a carpet professional clean your carpet?
When you call a Professional Carpet Cleaning service, they should come to your home and inspect your carpet before giving you an estimate. Different types of carpet, along with its condition, will affect the cost.
Once the carpet specialist has inspected your home and you have agreed to the estimate, the expert will clean your carpet using the best method for your flooring. There are many methods to choose from, but the method which has the greatest impact is hot water, or external, extraction. This is commonly known as “steam cleaning”, although no steam is actually generated in the procedure. DIY carpet steamers are commonly available for rent, but these units can not match the cleaning power of professional equipment. After your carpet has been cleaned, you may choose to have the specialist apply a treatment to help prevent future stains.
