Living in Toronto or anywhere throughout Ontario means you know a thing or two about some tough conditions. Winters here can be brutal, especially if you spent many years in a warmer climate. Even the summers pose their share of challenges, with storms, dry spells, and much more.
Trying to keep your home clean and healthy seems like a never ending battle and one part of the house that takes the largest brunt of the problems happens to be your carpeting.
Carpeting is comfortable and warm, for the most part, but after a few months it’s going to take on a worn, dirty appearance, no matter how much you vacuum it. Professional carpet cleaning services are the key to keeping and maintaining your floors looking like new for as long as possible.
Here are the top 3 reasons why it is time (not just might be) to have your carpets professionally cleaned.
1. It’s been at least six months since you had the carpet installed or last cleaned. Every few months the dirt, dust, stains, and other particles that float around your home will build up within the carpet pile. No amount of vacuuming, scrubbing spots, or other cleaning methods are going to get rid of them, aside from a professional cleaning machine with powerful suction (aka. A truck mounted carpet cleaning machine).
2. There’s been an accident. Spills, tracked in mud, and other mishaps are going to happen. It’s life. No matter how careful you are, eventually there’s going to be a stain on the carpeting.
Many homeowners make the most common mistake when trying to clean a stain or spill themselves; they end up rubbing the material in deeper. The surface might look clean, but it’s still there and it’s going to show up more clearly over time.
3. You want to keep your carpet looking as good as possible for as long as possible. Carpeting should last anywhere between 8 to 15 years, on average. There are many factors that go into determining the longevity of carpeting, including quality, use, and even cleaning methods.
Someone who vacuums regularly and has their carpets professionally cleaned every six months to a year is going to enjoy their carpeting longer than someone who only vacuums once a month, or less.
