Whether you own the home you live in or currently reside in a rental, you want your home to be as clean as it can possibly be. While you probably regularly vacuum carpets and rugs in addition to mopping hard surfaces, there are still steps you can take to ensure that your home is clean, even below the surface.
In a time where you can rent a carpet shampooer or buy your own from a big box store, you may think that your carpet is as clean as it can possibly be. However, there are multiple benefits to steam cleaning the carpet in your home.
No matter how clean your carpet may appear to the naked eye, there’s a good chance that it has a multitude of pollutants trapped inside. Inevitably, when you go out of your home you bring certain things back in with you. That’s why it’s likely that there are small dead bugs, microbes that you have picked up and even microscopic amounts of cockroach saliva and feces deeply imbedded in your carpet. Those factors don’t even include the potential pet dander and components of cigarette smoke that may be imbedded in your carpet.
No matter how many times you vacuum your carpets, and not matter how good your vacuum cleaner is, you will never be able to get all of these pollutants out of the carpet where you and your family walk, sit and enjoy time together. This is why the Environmental Protection Agency recommends periodic steam cleaning.
You’re probably already familiar with the multitude of health risks associated with having mold in your home. But you may not realize that having your carpet steam cleaned can reduce the risk of mold ever being present. There are four basic elements needed for mold to grow: moisture, dust, oxygen and a surface. Your carpet provides a surface, the air in your home provides the oxygen, and both moisture and dust can be brought into your home every time you wear your shoes in the door. That’s the perfect recipe for mold to develop in your carpet.
Having your carpet professionally steam cleaned will ensure that dirt, dust and moisture are all removed from the deeper, unseen layers of your carpet reducing the chance that mold has to grow. This means your home will continue being both clean and healthy.
Your Carpet Will Last Longer
Modern carpets aren’t as likely to “wear out” as carpets that were made years ago, but they do begin to lose their vibrance and comfort. It’s widely recommended that you steam clean your carpet at least once a year to keep it looking new.
That once a year number can vary depending on multiple factors, though. If you have pets in the home or you regularly wear shoes across the carpet, you may want to consider steam cleaning more often. You’ll also want to take into account how often you vacuum the carpet.
Replacing carpet isn’t cheap or easy, so you want to do everything you can to keep your carpet looking its best for as long as possible. That’s where steam cleaning comes into play.
