At Loudoun Valley Floors, we hear this all the time: “But I can handle the carpet myself, all I need is one of those DIY steam cleaning rental machines.”
Nope, you can’t, so now you need to know what Ashburn, VA knows about professional cleaning for your carpet.
●It makes your carpet last longer because:
1.Dirt and soil can be sharp and cut the fibers. Your rug can start looking frayed, bumpy, uneven or dull.
2.It’s like anything; the longer a stain sets in, the dirtier it’s going to look, no matter how much you clean it.
3.Not all stains and fibers are alike. The expert carpet cleaners know this and, as a result, don’t treat the treatment as a one-size-fits-all. They use specific cleaners unique to each type of stain, and they know that the wrong detergent can actually harm a fiber.
●Professional carpet cleaning goes deep, deep, deep into a fiber, Purcellville, VA. Those DIY machines just do not have the kind of power needed to do the kind of scrubbing needed. No matter how often you vacuum, or how fast you wipe up spills, there will still be some pretty unpleasant things like insect fragments, food, skin flakes and other things that make you shudder. The good news is they get trapped into the fibers, and don’t move until it’s professionally cleaned.
Do you really want to sit on this, or even walk on it in bare feet??!
●It improves air quality. First just getting that junk out improves air. Second, rugs can harbor mold which can grow in only 12 hours. If you wipe a spill, the water can still seep into the padding. If you try to do it yourself, you may not rinse well enough, or will most likely not dry fast enough so air drying just won't do the trick, and mold will start growing, creating a horrible odor, watery and itchy eyes, coughs, sneezes and wheezing.
