If you’re like most homeowners with carpeting in your house, you probably feel your vacuum keeps your rugs adequately clean. While it’s very important to vacuum at least weekly, this only removes some of the dirt from your carpeting. Over time, contaminants such as bacteria and mold become trapped in the rug fibers. The only way to remove these pollutants is with steam cleaning. And when searching professional carpet cleaning services, choose Elite Clean.

Dirty Carpeting Can Affect Your Indoor Air Quality

What most people don’t realize is that carpeting acts as a filtration device. One of the greatest but overlooked benefits of carpeting is that it’s the biggest filter in your home. Similar to an air filter for your HVAC system, carpeting absorbs and traps dirt, bacteria, pollen, fungi, and other pollutants. However, even regular vacuuming won’t remove all the soil that becomes embedded in your rug.

Over time, these contaminants will build up. If not removed with professional carpet cleaning, the carpeting will become saturated. Then these pollutants can become airborne affecting your indoor air quality. Moreover, if you have kids, you’ll want them to play on the cleanest surface possible.

Furthermore, your upholstery is another place dust, bacteria, mold, and other pollutants collect on a daily basis. Think about some of the activities that take place on your couch. If you have kids, most likely they’re spilling food and drinks on your furniture. And if you have pets, they’ll be sitting there as well. Each and every time you sit on your upholstered furniture, you’re unknowingly releasing pollutants into the air of your home.

What’s the Best Way to Clean My Carpeting?

There are a few methods for cleaning your carpet, but steam is the most widely-used method. This technique reaches down to the lowest layer of your carpeting to clean it thoroughly. Using a cleaning agent and water, steaming removes at least 97% of dirt and bacteria. Plus, many carpet manufacturers and industry professionals recommend it. To properly validate your warranty, manufacturers recommend this method at least once every 18 months.

At Elite Cleaning, we use state-of-the-art steam cleaning equipment to remove dirt and stains safely. We’ve spent years learning about and perfecting the science behind safe and effective cleaning techniques. Dirt, grime, mold, and allergens are no match for our powerful, efficient cleaning methods.

Can’t I Rent a Rug Doctor and Do It Myself?

While this is a route many people take, it isn’t always the best choice. First, many times hiring a professional isn’t that much more than doing it yourself. Consider the fee for renting the machine, prices of cleaning solutions, spot and stain removal kit. It all adds up. Plus, there’s the time you need to invest in cleaning the carpeting.

Furthermore, professional machines can heat the water to higher temperatures resulting in more effective cleaning. Professional machines are more powerful and able to extract more dirt. And finally, many carpet manufacturers have a list of approved machines to use on their products. Use the wrong one and you may void your warranty.
