The majority of Toronto homeowners don’t have their carpets professionally cleaned more than once a year, if that. In fact, the average homeowner only has their carpets professionally cleaned when they have a special event occurring at their home. This could be once a year, once every couple of years, or even more infrequently than that.
While there are a number of homeowners who rent a carpeting cleaning machine, or buy a small one, to do it themselves, they rarely ever achieve results even closely resembling those of a professional carpet cleaning service.
There are 5 very good reasons to have your carpets professionally cleaned, not just once a year, but all year long.
1. Dirt tracked in from outside. No matter how many times you admonish your kids to take their shoes off when they come inside, they’re going to forget. Even if everyone takes their shoes off like they are asked (or told), dirt will continue to be tracked in.
2. Spills and other accidents happen. If you have family members and they spend any amount of time at the house alone, odds are they are going to spill something at some point. They may try to get the stain up themselves, but when that doesn’t work, they’ll do their best to cover it up.
When a stain sets in, the only way to get it out is to hire a professional carpet cleaning company that has the equipment and products to make those stains disappear.
3. Dust is a never-ending companion in life. Even though you vacuum on a regular basis, that doesn’t mean you’re getting all of the dust and dirt up from your floors. 80 percent of the dust in your home is actually from dead skin cells that the body sheds every seven days.
Over time, that dust settles into the carpet fibers, causing discolored, stained, and dirty looking carpets.
4. Seasons change, so do the challenges. In the summer, more people will tend to run out in flip-flops, sandals, or even their bare feet. During autumn, as the rains increase, you’re spending more time dodging mud and puddles on the sidewalks. During winter, road salts and sand are commonly tracked into the house and onto those carpets. During spring, the thaw brings out all of the mud that you might have missed during the winter.
Every season has its unique challenges. Keeping your carpets cleaned will provide plenty of new challenges for you to face.
