Carpets, upholstery, and rugs need regular cleaning or else they face becoming irrevocably soiled and dirty. Unlike a tile surface that requires attention from a simple mop and broom on occasion, a carpet or rug will deteriorate if it's not cleaned regularly. Soiled fabric attracts a number of unpleasant environmental problems, not the least which is increasing troubles with breathing and existing allergies.
Cleaning at the bacterial level involves intense heat directed at neutralizing and removing indoor bacteria. Due to the nature of this bacteria, they cannot be removed by simply vacuuming. This is because they hide deep into the fibers of your carpet, upholstery, rugs, and other home valuables. This is why no matter how much you dust, your allergies still come back. You are simply dusting over them.
Cleaning a home or office involves more than dusting here and sweeping there. To clean at the bacterial level you must understand how the bacteria works. Here is a quick summary. The outdoor world is polluted with millions of pollution particles. Some of these particles are harmless and some of these particles contribute to the same environmental concerns facing the world today. Unless you go to the extreme, these particles, let's call them air pollution, will enter your home. When they enter your home, it's no biggie, as long as they stay low in numbers and are removed frequently. The potential danger to your health, and consequently to your property, is when the amount of air pollution exceeds a particular threshold. This is where cleaning comes in.
The long term effects of bacteria in your home obviously involve respiratory functions. People prone to allergies might feel their allergies increase with the increase of bacteria. People with asthma will have similar results. Your carpets and upholstery will also react, not through sniffles and flu like symptoms, but by loosing color and durability. In order to bring everyone back to their normal healthy state, the bacteria needs to go.
We clean everything that holds dust, allergens, dander, and any other type of air pollutant. From carpets to air ducts, we've got it all covered. Even places you would lease suspect, like grout and wood floor.
Dirt that builds up on carpets as well as dirt that isn't removed from areas like air conditioning ducts may lead to allergies, especially if someone in the house is allergic to pollen, pet dander or dust. When someone has an allergy like hay fever, a dusty, pollen-filled home might make that person feel like they have a permanent head cold, which is terribly uncomfortable.
Not only is regular cleaning essential for keeping a home environment allergen-free, but the simple act of regular vacuuming and periodic professional cleanings will greatly extend the expected lifespan of your carpet. When dirt falls into carpet and isn't removed quickly, it can lead to the slow destruction of delicate carpet fibers. Each time a foot falls on a dirty carpet, dirt and dust become harder to remove, and the damage becomes even greater.
With proper care, carpets and upholstery can look beautiful for a decade or more and may be refreshed and renewed with ease. On the other hand, carpets that haven't seen regular cleaning display ugly stains and bare spots from destructive dirt and contaminants. Unfortunately, failing to vacuum carpets and schedule cleaning appointments leads to a surface that can't be repaired. Your only option will be to replace the carpet, rug, or furniture upholstery.
