Carpet Cleaning in Winter
Salt and Chemicals
The salt that cities and counties use on icy roads is actually a type of chemical that helps melt the snow and ice faster. You can purchase bags of similar materials to use on your front porch, walkway or even driveway. As you walk from your car to your front door, you pick up traces of those chemicals on your shoes. Even if you take your shoes off at the door, you may drag those chemicals and salt across the floor and carpeting from the traces left on your pants and coat.
Damage to Carpet Fibers
Salt and chemicals used to treat icy spots outside can do significant damage to your carpets. Those chemicals may eat through the carpet fibers, which weakens your carpet and reduces it lifespan. Certain materials can also cause fading, especially in high traffic areas. That is why you might notice that the carpeting near your front door looks lighter after the winter season. We recommend that our customers look for signs of carpet fiber damage all season long. If you think that your carpets suffered damage because of the winter, arrange for professional cleaning as soon as possible.
Benefits of Professional Carpet Cleaning
Professional carpet cleaning comes with a number of possible benefits. Our services can increase the lifespan of your carpet, which saves you money in the long run. Paying for carpet cleaning costs much less than paying for new carpets will. Cleaning can also reduce the number of pollutants found inside your home. With our services, you can rest assured that there won’t be any toxins, chemicals or other pollutants living on the surface or inside your carpets that might make your family sick. With carpet cleaning, you can also limit the damage that winter does to your home’s floors.
How Deep Cleaning Works
Deep cleaning consists of several different steps. The first step is an inspection, which gives our cleaners an idea of what your home needs and the services that are right for you. We will then use commercial vacuums to remove any dust or debris from the carpets and remove any furniture from the room that is in the way. Many of our customers need spot treatments, which are treatments that we do before the deep clean. Spot treatments can get rid of surface stains and stains left behind by your pets. Our deep carpet cleaning includes an agitation process that gets deep into the fibers of your carpets and a rinse that removes all cleaning products from the carpet. We will also do a post cleaning inspection to look for any further damage problems that need treated, and we can do spot treatments to take care of those problems.
Schedule Your Appointment
During the inspection of your home, we can determine exactly what you need. We may do an extraction that removes ground in salt or dirt from the floors, but we may suggest grooming as well. Carpet grooming removes any mats from the carpeting and can help reduce the appearance of marks caused by heavy furniture. The entire process usually takes a few hours, but it may take as long as 24 hours for the carpet to dry completely. Call us today to schedule an appointment for the carpet care services and deep cleaning you need after winter.
