Holiday carpet cleaning

The holidays are just around the corner and that means hosting parties, even welcoming family to spend a few nights in the guest room.

Acme Clean professionals knows looks can be deceiving when it comes to carpets. We recommend an annual cleaning for homes with light traffic and twice a year for heavy traffic – kids, pets, and frequent guests. So, if you’re past due for a cleaning, get it done.

Your carpet might not necessarily look dirty, or you might figure that it’s vacuumed every week, so it’s not necessary to clean your carpets. However, it’s the perfect environment for bacteria and mold to live, breed, and propagate their nastiness out of sight, but unfortunately not out of reach of your family.

Maybe you’ve come down with a strange cold you can’t seem to shake or notice you’ve been having trouble breathing. The culprit could be lurking deep in your carpeting.

Whenever you walk into your home, your shoes bring in small particles of whatever you’ve stepped in outside, and some of it gets left behind in the carpet. That means you can have pollen and dust trapped in your carpet, which could be causing those allergy flare-ups.

Now here’s a gross thought, you stepped in a little leftover dog poop and now have that in your carpet. You could even have something serious like E. Coli hanging out in your fibers and not even know it.

That’s not even mentioning the millions of skins cells you and your family shed and are leaving in your carpet daily. These cells provide the perfect food for dust mites. With a food supply, these little buggers will happily stick around and even start breeding.

In short, no matter how clean you think your carpets might be, they’re probably not as clean as they seem. Remember, this stuff is microscopic, so carpet doesn’t necessarily have to look dirty to be dirty.

Regular vacuuming cuts down on a number of bacteria and other allergens present in your carpet by sucking up the loose stuff on the top. But once it gets ground into the carpet a little by people or pets walking across, the vacuum can’t get rid of them completely.

A regular vacuum cleaner just simply isn’t strong enough to pull all that gunk out when it’s nestled deep in your carpet fibers.

Are you convinced to clean your carpets yet? Maybe you’re even ready to rip it all and install hardwood or tile floors. Before you undertake a full home remodel, let’s first talk about what you can do about it.

For starters, don’t give up on the vacuum. While it can’t thoroughly remove everything, it does greatly slow the buildup process and help to keep those allergens and other dangerous bacteria to a minimum.

Next, be sure to hire a professional carpet cleaner to thoroughly clean your carpets and get them looking and smelling fresh, and, most importantly, clean. The frequency with which you will need to do this depends on your situation.

The average household can generally expect to need a thorough cleaning about once a year. If you have kids, pets, and frequent guests, you might clean your carpets as part of your spring to-do list and then once more before the holidays to get ready for your houseful of guests.

If you have issues with stains and pet odors, or someone with allergies or respiratory issues living in your home, a more aggressive schedule may even be necessary.

Professional cleaning also has other benefits. Regularly cleaned carpets last longer than those that are not. That’s because the dirt and particles that get trapped down in the carpet fibers have an abrasive effect on your carpet as you walk across it. Over time, this wears out your carpets out faster.

Getting all that gunk out of there could end up saving you a significant amount of money in the long run.

Now that you have a better idea of what’s going on in your carpets, give us a call here at Acme Clean to schedule a carpet cleaning today! Our friendly, efficient professionals make the whole process easy and stress-free from start to finish. And your home and holiday guests will thank you.
