What you need to know about professional carpet cleaning

Nothing lifts the feel of cleanliness and tidiness like fresh new carpets or, failing that, professionally cleaned carpets. A professional carpet cleaning can revitalize your floors, removing odours and bringing them back to life. 

As much as we would all love to have immaculate carpets year-round, for most of us, it’s just not a reality. Kids, pets, visitors, dropped food, a pesky wine stain… it all adds up. While we may not visually notice our carpets slowly degrading over time, the fibres in your carpet are less forgiving. Professional carpet cleaning isn’t just aesthetic; it can also prolong your carpet's life.

Benefits of professional carpet cleaning

1. Extends the life of your carpets. As we mentioned in our introduction, professional carpet cleaning can actually be a cost-saving measure as it means you won’t need to buy new carpets as quickly. Dirt, dust, allergens, and even tiny pests can accumulate in your carpet through day-to-day usage. These get embedded in the carpet fibres, causing deterioration. The dirtier your carpet fibres, the easier it is for further build-up to occur.

2. Removes those stubborn stains. Some carpet stains can be extremely troublesome to lift. Hard scrubbing can also cause damage to the fibres, so even if that stain is gone, you may be able to see where it was. Patch cleaning also leads to cleaner sections of your carpet, which only makes the “regular” carpet look worse.

3. Removes lingering odours. If you are a pet owner, you may be aware of those tell-tale odours that just won’t shift. But, even those without pets can struggle to lift that stale smell and bring back that freshness their home once had. Whether you are trying to rid your home of a specific smell, such as tobacco odour, or want to freshen things up, the olfactory difference can be dramatic!

4. Hypoallergenic help. More and more Canadians are suffering from allergies within the home. A professional clean can help you breathe easier by obliterating germs, dust and other allergens from your carpets. If you have a professional clean carried out regularly, you may notice a reduction in asthma or allergy-related symptoms. 

5. Residue-free results. Many DIY carpet cleaning machines that mimic professional cleans can leave a nasty residue behind from the products used. Professional machinery is much more powerful and ensures your carpets are left residue-free.

6. Better for the environment. As we are becoming more environmentally aware as a nation, we know that it is important to you to know you are doing what you can. ServiceMaster Green Cleaning can be used for carpets, upholstery, tile and grout and is as effective as traditional cleaning. It's also the right thing for our customers - and the environment.
