4 Signs it’s Time to Have Your Carpet Cleaned
Carpet cleaning services
Ah yes, it’s that time of year again. The mid-summer lull, when the efforts of earlier spring cleaning are beginning to dwindle and the pre-winter put-away is still a distant future. By now you’ve probably noticed a distinct smell lingering in the air after the kids run through the house barefoot directly into a backyard wonderland of dirt, grass, and bugs.
That lovely smell is a cloud mixture of dust, bug feces, and other allergens.
And even if you don’t see the dirt, it doesn’t mean that it’s not there. As carpet cleaner maestros, we clean hundreds of rugs that don’t have visible stains but are noticeably gray or darker in colour. The difference is stunning when you compare the results.
But, how do you know when it’s time to call up your trusty Bay area carpet cleaner? Keep reading to find out!
#1: You’ve never had carpet cleaning done
We get it. Life is busy and there are more pressing things demanding your attention than the gorgeous woven area rug that’s adorning your upstairs hallway. But, if you want to avoid everything from unpleasant smells to allergy headaches, regular carpet cleaning is essential. Quick rule of thumb? Professional cleaning should be done every 3 to 6 months depending on the climate.
#2: You or a family member suffer from allergies
Dust particles trapped in carpet fibres can build up and trap other dirt and allergens. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, dust mites are known allergens that live in fibres and feed on the thousands of skin cells that we humans shed everyday.
Unfortunately, vacuuming is not enough to get rid of dust mites and can even pump them back into the indoor air.
#3: Someone is moving in or out of your home
In the time of COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to maintain home hygiene and stick to cleaning schedules.
If you have family or friends isolating or in quarantine in your home, take extra care to clean and disinfect the common areas that may be more exposed to outside contaminants. This includes carpets. At Mother Nature’s Cleaning, we use products that are all-natural, Green Seal Certified, and/or are classified as non-hazardous/non-toxic. Our cleaning services produce results that will be noticeable for up to six months after treatment.
We also offer upholstery and furniture cleaning, so that you can rest assured that your family can relax and work-from-home in a clean and safe environment.
#4: The puppy is finally toilet-trained!
Young pups quickly become a part of the family – just like their bacteria!
If you have pets of any age, chances are there are traces of their dirt, urine, or even feces in your carpets. Even if they never had an accident indoors, dogs’ paws track bacteria from outside areas inside. Urine can actually change the dye structure of fibres, causing permanent stains. The trick is to treat the damaged area as soon as possible to avoid long-term discoloration.
Mother Nature’s Cleaning offers in-home and off-site cleaning for urine and odor removal. If you’ve just spent the last few months in quarantine training your new furry friend, contact us to find out how we can help keep your home fresh and pet-friendly.
