5 Signs Your Carpet Needs Cleaning

Signs for Carpet Cleaning

Regular carpet cleaning is a must to keep your business looking its best. Although you might vacuum on a regular basis, you will not see the same results as a deep cleaning provided by a professional cleaning service. Professional cleaners can remove stains while providing a deep cleaning to get your carpets looking like new.

Why use professional carpet cleaners?

Professional carpet cleaning is something you should be doing to keep your carpet looking its best. We use special equipment designed to cause the least harm to the surface of your carpet, while penetrating deep below the surface to remove the debris that can lead to health issues. Dust mites, pet residue and dander, along with traces of mildew can irritate allergies and make your family sick. A professional carpet cleaning will rid you of these worries while keeping your house looking great.

Here are some signs you are in need of a professional carpet cleaning:

  1. Visible staining

    Although modern carpeting usually features some form of stain repellant, stains can still occur from darker beverages, or when you are unable to remove the spill. Even a slight discolouration from lighter liquids can ruin the appearance of your carpet. Once the stain is allowed to set in, the only way to remove it is by using a professional cleaner. If you over saturate the carpet in your effort to remove the stain, that dampness can remain, allowing mould and mildew to grow.

  2. Allergy symptoms

    One of the biggest problems with carpeting is that they collect particles that can trigger allergies. Even if you don’t think of yourself as an allergy sufferer, the buildup of dust, bacteria and dust mites can lead to an endless cycle of sneezing, coughing and burning eyes. This can lead to other issues such as sinus infections, and for those with asthma can contribute to breathing issues.

  3. Children

    Carpet cleaning is especially important for businesses who frequently dead with children, like daycares and indoor playgrounds. Children playing on the floor can easily pick up bacteria from the carpet. This could come from pets, but also from residue tracked in from outside on people’s shoes. It is best to have your carpets cleaned once or twice a year to lessen the chance of them coming into contact with bacteria that can include:

    • E. coli – This bacterium has different strands which can lead to issues including diarrhea, urinary tract infections, respiratory illness, and pneumonia. This can be deposited by pets but can also be dragged in on shoes and feet.

    • Staph – This bacterium is found on the nose and skin of about 25% of the population. It can cause minor skin irritations and far more serious conditions that can even require hospitalization. Some strains can be treated with antibiotics, while some are resistant.

    • Salmonella - 40,000 cases of salmonella are reported each year causing diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramping. It is spread to the carpet through feces.

  4. Unpleasant odours

    If you have noticed a smell in your office or business that doesn’t seem to go away no matter how much you clean, chances are it’s coming from your carpet. The problem with living with smells is often you don’t notice it, but others visiting your space do. There are so many factors that can lead to odours with carpeting from bacteria to dampness and mildew to pet stains. A good cleaning will provide the deep-down cleaning you need to get rid of the smell right away.

  5. Worn carpeting

    Before you decide to replace that worn carpeting, give a professional cleaning a try. Old carpeting appears worn because it has been walked on and collected dirt over time. Cleaning can help rejuvenate your carpet by removing the buildup of particles of dirt that not only change the colour of your carpeting but can also give it a flat appearance. A good cleaning can help perk up the fibres while removing the discoloration caused by dirt. A professional cleaning can’t do much for a carpet that has worn down to the backing, but it will definitely help it look like new if it is just in need of some TLC.

  6. Age

    If you have had your carpet for years and haven’t had a single professional cleaning, it’s time. As mentioned above, the older your carpet, the more particles of dirt that it collects. Although vacuuming can help keep things clean, there is no getting rid of the dirt and residue that collects below the backing and deep between the tufts.

A professional carpet cleaning will do wonders to improve the look of your office. Regular carpet cleaning will keep your space more hygienic, remove allergens, making it a comfortable environment for employees and customers alike.
