Doing it Right: Hire Professional Carpet Cleaners for Your Home or Office
Although carpeting infuses your home or office with beauty and comfort, it inevitably loses its newness and begins to look worn or stained. When your carpet reaches this stage, you might consider hiring a professional carpet cleaner to spruce it up a bit. Carpet cleaning not only removes dust and stains, but also somewhat restores carpet's lushness. Professional carpet cleaners often leave a room or home smelling fresh, eliminating the dust that has been embedded in the carpet and padding over time.
Professional carpet cleaners have hands-on experience with cleaning a variety of flooring. From tufted to needlefelt to flatweave and woven carpet, cleaning services know what type of equipment and cleaning solution works best. They also know how to remove those tough stains without damaging your carpet.
2. Save Time
You might save a little money by cleaning the carpet yourself, but you'll likely spend twice the time cleaning it as a professional service. Those who do cleaning often have mastered the technique and do usually learn ways to minimize their cleaning time. You might spend a whole day in one room whereas a professional cleaner can zip through in a couple of hours. If time equals money in your line of work, then you might find that it's much cheaper to hire a professional. (Hint: Using one of those rental machines is not as easy as it looks!)
3. Minimize Moisture
No matter who cleans the carpet (you or a service), there will likely be some excess moisture in your carpet and padding. This can dry out gradually over a period of a few days, but the sooner it dries the better. A professional may use industrial fans to dry your carpet after a cleaning. This ensures minimal risk of mildewing while also allowing you to move your furniture back into the room fairly quickly.
4. Reduce Health Risks
Renting a carpet cleaner machine can pose a threat to your health or at least stir up allergies. You'll have no way of knowing if the person who rented before you cleaned it properly after use, or if it was cleaned at all. Perhaps they have pets in the home or smoke heavily. If the machine wasn't cleaned properly, you could spread their dirt, germs, pet hair and whatever else into your carpet - not a pleasant thought! Professional cleaners understand these factors and should be able to assure you of their equipment cleaning procedures between cleanings.
5. Get an Even Clean
Spot cleaning and vacuuming just doesn't leave the clean, fresh look and feel as a professional cleaning. Spot cleaning tends to make only certain areas of the carpet look clean while others remain dirty. If you don't have access to rental equipment or you simply don't want to try it yourself, a professional carpet cleaner will help improve the look and feel of every inch of your carpeted rooms. The entire carpet (not just certain spots) in your home or office will look and feel new again.
Use online resources to search for reputable carpet cleaners. Search for cleaners in your city using keywords, such as "carpet cleaners London," "cleaning company London," or "office cleaning London." Be sure to call or e-mail early to reserve carpet cleaners before holidays or special gatherings to secure an appointment date.
