By hoovering your carpets regularly you will reduce the risk of allergens developing.
Why do I need to have my carpets professionally cleaned? Carpet manufacturers recommend that you have your carpets cleaned at least once per year, more often depending on traffic.

Your hoover will remove all of the surface dirt and dust but will not remove deep down dirt. The recommended method of cleaning is the hot water extraction system, this method is proven to be very effective at removing stains and the toughest, deepest dirt safely and gently. Carpet cleaning professionals, like us, have powerful machines which are used to clean the carpets. These machines spray hot water and a specially formulated cleaning solution deep into the carpet fibres. The solution instantly dissolves dirt and bacteria. Then a powerful suction extracts all the dirt, allergens and moisture from the carpets. Usually carpets are completely dry within a couple of hours.
