With spring almost over, there’s never a better time to cram in some extra spring cleaning chores. For many, spring cleaning will mean various things. For some, it can mean dusting the blinds, organising the kitchen cupboards or even sorting out old clothing … but what’s a major thing that quite often flies under the radar? Carpet cleaning!
Our carpets are constantly exposed to various germs, bacteria and allergens. Even though many of us suffer from respiratory problems, a lot of the time we don’t think about how our carpets could be affecting us. By ensuring that carpet cleaning is on top of your spring cleaning list (well, cleaning list in general), you can severely help to reduce the amount carpet-related issues that so many suffer from.
When to clean your carpets?
At Wizard Carpet, Tile and Grout Cleaning, we generally recommend cleaning your carpets regularly. The key number of times to clean it depends on foot traffic and if you have pets or not. As a guide though, we wouldn’t recommend going for more than a week without cleaning your carpets.
In order to assist with removing superficial dust and particles from your carpets, using a standard vacuum cleaner should suffice. If you’re half-way through your spring cleaning routine though, we’d definitely recommend having the professionals come in.
Quite often, when people spring clean, extra particles, dirt and grime will get caught up in the carpet fibres. By using a vacuum cleaner alone, it’ll be near impossible to give them a thorough clean. By using a professional carpet cleaning service, you can expect to significantly reduce the number of unwanted nasties from your carpets. Also, any stains that you’ve accumulated throughout the year will have a chance at being removed.
Why is professional carpet cleaning important during spring cleaning?
As we explained above, when most people spring clean, they’ll notice extra particles invading their carpets. Usually, we would recommend having your carpets professionally steam cleaned at least once or twice per year and so capitalising on the opportunity to do so during your spring cleaning routine makes perfect sense!
