The Local Carpet Cleaning Team You Can Count On
Close to three quarters of the soiling that accumulates in the carpet is composed of dry particulate matter and sand. This kind of dirt is abrasive, which accelerates the rate of wear and tear of the material. Putting off the carpet cleaning allows the dirt to work its way deeper into the pile. As people walk about, the particles are ground against the carpet, degrading the fibres. The sharp edges can even cut off the fibres are at the bottom. Over time, the pile becomes thinner, and the wear patterns begin to show. This is in addition to the crushed fibres and traffic lanes that develop on those frequently walked-on areas. Then there is the oil and greasy residue that accumulates in the carpet. These are the likes of splatters from cooking activities. This soiling is acidic, which is a threat to the fibres of the unit. This is why many of the carpet cleaning formulations used are usually alkaline, serving to neutralise the acidic agents in the carpet and enable the soiling to be removed. Don’t fret- there are products on both sides of the scale developed to remove both acidic and alkaline soiling. There are even natural carpet cleaning agents, and our professional crew will be in a position to determine the appropriate product to use for each particular situation.
The carpet is an ecosystem in itself. It enables colonies of microbes to thrive. For starters, there’s the organic material that attracts them there. This can be anything from skin flakes that are fed on by dust mites, to food crumbs that attract insects. Then there are the bacteria too, which is involved in the decomposition of the organic matter. Getting rid of the organic matter and destroying bacteria colonies is a key part of the carpet cleaning. Pathogens, mould and mites- these drag down the health standards of the premises, and those are definitely not the living or working conditions you desire. The carpet’s structural integrity is also put on the line. For instance, the accumulating food deposits may attract roaches and even rodents like mice. As these larger creatures work to pry off the particles from the fibres, they can end up damaging the material in the process. With the mice, their sharp teeth and claws will right out tear the carpet. The insects and rodents also bring along a wide range of pathogens, compounding the health risks for the persons on the premises. Ensuring that the carpet cleaning is done on a regular basis will enable you to provide a conducive environment for your family at home, and the staff and clients on your business premises.
They are pungent, and ruin the ambience. No one likes walking into to a room and being assaulted by musky smells coming out of the carpet, it will be difficult to concentrate on your tasks when you can barely catch a whiff of fresh air. Odours can be caused by anything from the decaying organic matter, cigarette smoke that was absorbed by the carpet, all through to issues like urine stains. During the carpet cleaning, the source of the smell is removed. What’s more, odour neutralisers are incorporated into the process, leaving behind a pleasant fragrance in their wake.
No need to burden yourself
Taking on the carpet cleaning task by yourself can be a tall order. For starters, there is the quality of the machinery that is required. Those units that rented from department stores come at lower capacity ratings compared to the industry grade carpet cleaning units used by the professionals Right from the onset, you will be disadvantaged in terms of the heat, pressure, and scrubbing and extraction power needed for the job. This means you end up using a significant amount of energy for especially when attending to those stubborn spots. Add to this issues such as moving around the furniture, lifting the machinery itself and hauling it through the different rooms- all this while you still risk ending up with unsatisfactory results. That’s not all. Without the proper skills needed for the job, there are high chances of applying incorrect carpet cleaning products. This can be in an attempt to tackle those particularly frustrating stains, or simply using formulations that are incompatible with the particular type of carpet. Anything from discolouration to corrosion of the carpet’s material can result, reducing its lifespan. Common mistakes such as overwetting during the carpet cleaning can cause an increase in the drying time, which in turn encourages mould growth. Issues such as delamination can also occur. In this case, the carpet separates from its backing, and you may end up being forced to replace the entire unit. Overwetting has also been known to cause shrinkage of the carpet. You want to get rid of the dirt, not to watch the carpet pulling away from the walls. Colour bleeding is also a common occurrence due to DIY carpet cleaning jobs. Here, the beauty of your carpet is lost as the dyes used in its design basically gets leached off. Overshampooing on the other hand causes too much residue to be left behind in the carpet, which will cause it to get soiled at a faster rate. This is because the residue is a dirt magnet, trapping those particles floating about the air space, locking them in the fibres. This is not how you picture spending your weekends and free days from work.
