How often should you have your carpets cleaned?
We all try our best to keep our home as clean as possible and looking its best for both ourselves and our guests. However, no matter how hard we try or how careful we are, it is inevitable that our carpets pick up dirt and dust over time. This can lead to our favorite, and often expensive carpets, losing the appearance they had when first installed.
Cleaning experts suggest that our carpets should actually be vacuumed on a daily basis but, given the busy lives we all lead, we know that this is pretty much an impossible task! Areas of high traffic, such as reception rooms are particularly at risk from dirt, dust, pollens, and germs. By following a simple and regular professional carpet cleaning routine, you can extend the lifespan of your carpets and keep them looking like new for a lot longer!
Is a professional carpet cleaning worth it?
Carpet cleaning professionals have a wealth of experience in dealing with different types of soiling and stains. Carpet technicians also have access to a number of professional-grade cleaning machines, equipment, and also vast selection of specialist cleaning products. It is this careful combination of experience, skill, and proper equipment that gives the best results. If you want exceptional results and your carpets looking as good as when they were first laid then professional carpet cleaning is definitely worth it.
How is professional carpet cleaning done?
A professional carpet clean is a highly skilled and delicate process which typically consists of three steps;
Cleaning – The process starts with the carpets being cleaned with specialist, high-powered vacuums that remove all of the loose dirt, dust, hairs, and debris before the next stage.
Washing & Rinsing – This stage is the key part of the carpet cleaning process.
All of the deep-rooted dirt and stains in the carpet fibers are treated with specialist cleansers.
Steam Sterilisation – When trying to remove or eliminate the microorganisms that can hide in the fibers it is vital that they are treated with steam sterilization. If they go untreated, these microorganisms can circulate through your carpet and even become airborne.
Can I do it myself?
It can be quite tempting for many people to try to save some money and attempt to tackle carpet cleaning themselves but we would highly recommend leaving it to the pros! New carpets can be a sizable financial outlay and should, therefore, be treated with care. Using off the shelf cleaning products without previous experience can risk permanently damaging your carpets and, in the worst cases, lead to them having to be replaced completely!
The risk of damage is not the only downside, it is also the time it takes to try to clean your own carpets. You will need to shop around to find somewhere to hire the cleaning machines, try to find the appropriate cleaning agents for your type of carpet, move all of the furniture out of the room, and only then can you actually start the cleaning process itself! Don’t forget you will need to collect and drop off the machines too! Why not instead simply leave it to the experts and save yourself all of that time, stress and hassle?
How much is carpet cleaning?
The most commonly asked question most of us have before booking is, how much does professional carpet cleaning actually cost? Well, we are pleased to say that it is probably less than you think! Naturally, the price of the cleaning will vary depending on the size of the carpet to be cleaned. Another important aspect in terms of pricing is the type and material of your carpet, ie, Is it nylon or polyester? Machine or hand made?
Don’t forget that you can often negotiate a better price if you have more than one carpet to be cleaned. By planning ahead and having a few rooms done on the same day you can potentially save money. However, average-sized rooms should typically cost between £60-120.
