How are your carpets and rugs looking this spring? If you’re like most people, your flooring is looking a little dingy after a long winter. Though most homeowners get the spring cleaning bug around this time of year, not everyone remembers to include carpets and rugs on their cleaning checklist. Here’s why you should.
It’s more common these days for homes to have all hard flooring with area rugs instead of wall-to-wall carpeting. In the days of old, area rugs got cleaned by hauling them outside and beating the life out of them. Now, we have the convenience of professional rug cleaning. It’s much easier on your rugs and on you, not to mention much more thorough.
Beating rugs just got out the dust and some of the dirt that was near the surface. What you'll find deep down in the fibers of your carpet is much worse.
We have to deal with the usual dirt, dust, dust mites, pet hair and dander, pollen and maybe some mildew. On top of those things that have been around forever, we now have chemicals that can work their way down into our rugs and carpets. This includes cleaning products and other home maintenance toxins, fertilizer and petroleum products that come into the house on the feet of human and pet traffic, and other pollutants that can take a toll on your flooring.
The things that come into your home on a regular basis are why floor cleaning should be on the top of your list when it comes to spring cleaning. For carpet and rug cleaning that will make your home feel like new, contact our friendly team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners.
