Spring is in the air. But what is in your carpets?
But before opening your San Diego home up to let it in, we suggest taking the opportunity to thoroughly clean your home before enjoying the season’s warmth and sweet scent of flowers. While most people pull out their refrigerators to clean the mysteries that are lurking behind, or clean out their closets, scrub the floors and clean the baseboards, we suggest adding professional carpet cleaning to your spring cleaning agenda.
Aside from the obvious fact that cleaning your carpets with a green steam cleaning process can make your house feel fresh and new again, there are health factors involved, as well. Did you know that your home becomes a giant germ collector during the winter months? When cold and flu germs make their way into your home, they have a heyday bouncing from place to place and settling onto every surface – including your carpet.
Carpets are just like soil magnets,picking up everything, from pet urine to toenails, and can hold up to 200,000 bacteria per every square inch. That’s a lot of yuck! And vacuuming won’t quite cut it. It’s what remains beneath the surface that you have to beware of. Your carpets are becoming feeding grounds for microscopic dust mites.
Cleaning areas that we typically clean less often – such as rugs, curtains, upholstered furniture, and tops of door frames – can help get rid of the dirt, allergens, and germs floating around your home, but this won’t take care of what’s beneath your feet.
Manufactuers always recommend getting your carpets professionally cleaned once every 12-18 months, so why not make it this springtime? This is the best way to make sure that your carpet is well taken care of, that it will last as long as possible, and above all, that it will keep your family clean, healthy and safe.
