How to Keep Your Carpets Clean
There are many things that can get into your carpeting and increase the wear and tear on it. Some of the more common known things include particles of dirt and dust. When we go outside, our shoes gather particles in the treads and then we track them in. As these particles fall off our shoes, they get ground into the carpet, causing it to wear and tear. This is especially true in the business world. Vacuuming alone cannot remove the particles that harm the carpeting. To best take care of the issues, you need to hire us at Carpet Cleaning Nurse's Touch in Mobile, Alabama to professionally clean your business's carpets.
Before you come inside your home or business, you know that you should clean off your feet. This is even more important when it comes to the chemicals that can get stuck in your shoes and damage the carpeting. In the winter, specifically, ice melt and rock salt are mixed in with the snow that you walk through. The slush you bring in on your feet is full of these chemicals. When the wet mess you bring in dries and the water has evaporated, you can oftentimes see the white salt stain that is left behind. These stains look horrible on your carpets, but also damage the carpet fibers as they are ground into the carpets as people walk on it. Other chemicals that are brought in include yard treatments, oils from vehicles, and others.
Beyond snowflakes is skin flakes. Did you know that, on average, a person will shed around a million flakes of skin in a day? Now, think about how much of that ends up in your carpets. This alone encourages bugs, such as dust mites, to live in your carpets.
Speaking of bugs, just because you can’t see them there, doesn’t mean they aren’t making their home in your carpet. There are many microscopic bugs that can live in your carpeting, such as dust mites and fleas, that feed off the dander and skin flakes that fall from your body. Many people are allergic to dust mites, too, which makes it even more important to keep them out of your carpets, especially when it’s allergy season.
To get rid of these problems in your carpets, vacuuming is a great start. Vacuuming alone isn’t enough to completely protect your carpets from all the factors they face, though. When you get your carpets cleaned regularly by a professional, they can remove the stains and dirt, prevent allergic reactions, get rid of the microscopic pests living there, and extend the life of your carpeting. Any time of the year is a great time to have your carpets cleaned!
