Carpets are the preferred flooring option for most homeowners. They reduce noise, provide better insulation and make for a comfy and warm environment at home. Most people consider regular vacuuming to be sufficient for keeping these carpets clean, but there’s more that needs to be done.
Vacuuming alone doesn’t remove all the impurities that have settled deep within the fibres of the carpet. Here are four signs to watch out for that indicate it’s time to get your carpet cleaned professionally.
If you can detect a constant, lingering, foul smell even after you’ve been cleaning your house regularly, it’s probably your carpet that’s to blame. Mould can grow from soaking up spilled liquids or excess moisture on the carpet, which results in an extremely foul smell.
Allergies Are Acting Up
Carpets can act as a nesting ground for multiple allergens such as pollen, dust mites and pet dander. If you have allergies and feel like they’ve been acting up more recently, then it might be due to your carpet. Just walking over your carpet can cause these allergens to shoot up into the air and start causing allergic reactions. These allergens are embedded deep into the fibres and can’t be removed by conventional cleaning methods such as vacuuming.
Loss of Colour
Discolouration is very common amongst carpets that have been in use for a long time. It can be caused by the collection of dust and dirt over time, spillage and even extended use.
It’s easy to let this go unnoticed. If you’ve placed some kind of furniture over the carpet then try removing it and see the difference in colour between the part that was covered and that was not. If there’s a clear difference, then it means your carpet has suffered a loss of colour and needs professional cleaning.
Carpet stains can be caused by various reasons, from spillage to mould growth. Some stains are easy to remove; however, there are some stains that don’t go away no matter how much you vacuum or clean. If the stain doesn’t budge, then that means you’ll need to get it cleaned professionally.
