Hiding in the fibers of your carpet and couches are dirt, skin flakes, dust mites, mold spores, and bacteria. It’s estimated that about 200,000 bacteria including E. coli, staphylococcus, and salmonella live in each square inch of carpet. This is nearly 700 times dirtier than your toilet seat. Moreover, on average, most carpets can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dirt in a year. While this may disgust you, there is a way to remove 98% of all this soil.

Isn’t Vacuuming Enough?
Of course, routine vacuuming of your carpet is necessary. This is particularly true in an area of high traffic where more soil accumulates. Dirt is abrasive, grinding away at the fibers of your carpet as you walk across it. And routine vacuuming will remove much of this soil to protect your carpet. But vacuuming is only part of the process of keeping your rug clean and looking great.
First, vacuums can’t remove odors and stains. Secondly, even the most powerful vacuums leave behind bacteria, pollen, and mold spores. The only way to achieve a deep clean of your carpeting is with a professional cleaning.
Can a Cleaner Carpet Help with My Allergies?
Lurking in your carpet is one of the most common triggers of allergies, dust mites. While dust mites themselves are problematic, so are their feces which also lay in upholstery and carpeting. Typical allergic symptoms include sneezing, watery red eyes, runny noses, and inflamed skin.
Another universal cause of allergies is pet dander. Pet dander is composed of tiny, microscopic, flecks of skin shed by animals with fur or feathers. It can remain suspended in the air for a long time, circulating far longer than other allergens. Furthermore, because of its microscopic size and jagged shape, dander easily sticks to objects. This means it can enter your home, even if you have no pets. Typically, allergic reactions to dander are respiratory, including prolonged coughing and trouble breathing.
Steam cleaning your rug and upholstery is an effective way to rid your home of these allergens. First, the heat of the steam kills the dust mites. But also, professional carpet cleaning can remove about 98% of dirt and allergens from your carpets, including pet dander. And at Elite Cleaning, we’ve got special deals on our carpet cleaning!

How Often Should I Get My Carpets Cleaned?
Generally, most carpet manufacturers recommend professional carpet cleaning every 12-18 months. Of course, the frequency should change depending on the number of people and pets living in your home. More people create more traffic and hence more dirt entering your home. And of course, several pets will mean more pet dander.
But having your upholstery and carpeting cleaned by a professional is more than just for cleanliness. Regular professional cleaning will extend the life of your rug. The longer dirt sits, the more it tears at the fibers, ripping them apart, and damaging them. Additionally, many manufacturers require regularly scheduled professional cleaning to validate their warranty.
