Carpets can act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet. These are some preventative actions that you can take to avoid needing professional carpet cleaning services.
IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
- Regular vacuuming
- Spot removal
- Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
- Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
- Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet
These are all measures that can be taken to keep your carpet clean and avoid needing professional assistance. However, if it’s too late for your carpet or you carpet or furnishings have sustained damage from water or flooding, then you WILL need a professional carpet cleaner/restorative service.
Professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and the color of carpeting. It is often advised (by carpet companies) to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months to keep it clean, healthy and allergy-free. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil and other pollutants. If you wait until your carpet looks dirty, the carpet may never be restored to its previous appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.
If you have experienced water damage or flooding in your property then drying, cleaning and restoring your carpet are absolutely crucial to the water damage restoration process. If ignored you carpet may begin to emit bad odours and even become a breeding ground for potentially harmful types of mould. If this is the case, then you MUST contact Disaster Restorations Australia immediately to resolve this problem as soon as possible.
