6 Disgusting Reasons You Should Clean Your Carpet NOW
You should have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly to keep your home clean and healthy and extend your carpet’s life. In fact, the Carpet and Rug Institute recommends that carpets should be professionally cleaned regularly. Shaw Floors, a known carpet company recommends cleaning your carpets every 12-18 months. This ensures that your carpet stays in shape because you remove dirt and other particles that can cut your carpet’s fibers. According to Better Home Gardens, high traffic areas can benefit from being cleaned even more frequently than 12-18 months as these accumulate much more residue over time.
If it’s been a while since you’ve had your carpets professionally cleaned and you aren’t convinced that it’s time yet, here are 6 disgusting reasons why you should clean your carpets NOW!
First, a dirty carpet can be the source of allergies.
Carpet holds more dust than you think. Many of the nasties that build up in carpet cause allergies. There is much more you can do in addition to frequently giving your floors a good vacuum to ensure that your home is as healthy and clean as possible. Occasionally, your carpets will be in dire need of proper professional cleanings. Our Green Technology and Zr Water® clean better than soaps and other cleaning agents, yet don’t leave a residue behind. The substances we clean with at Zerorez® are not harmful to you, your home, or the environment. Our Zr Water® is applied to your carpets at the appropriate pressure, both loosening embedded dirt and cleaning the fabric without over-wetting it, leaving just a tiny amount of extraction water, which dries quickly and with No Residue®. Clean your carpets and stay healthy!
Second, pet stains cause unpleasant odors.
Did you know that one of the most popular questions people ask about carpet cleaning is how to get pet smells out of homes or pee stains out of carpet? If you are the owner of a dog or cat, you know that accidents happen! These accidents won’t make you love your pet any less but will definitely require that you give your carpets the attention they need. If you let urine stains, vomit stains, or feces stains sit on your carpet without being attended to by a professional cleaner, your house will start to smell awful! You may not notice, but your friends and neighbors sure will.
When your friends visit, you don’t want the first thing they smell when they walk in the door to be your pet’s odor! You need the best pet odor and stain remover to ensure this is not the case for your home. Here at Zerorez®, we clean your carpets in a safe way for your pets and your home. Our pet odor and stain remover is the greener carpet cleaner that doesn’t use soap or harsh chemicals and cleans your carpet better than both! When we come to clean, we don’t mask pet odors – we eliminate them.
Third, do you know what is hiding in your carpet?
You might have to skip this one if you are feeling woozy, but it’s all true! You are about to pick up that phone and call the Zerorez® near you once you’ve learned what hides in the carpet. First up, skin cells. Did you know that the average person sheds around 1.5 million skin cells each day? Yup. And lots of those skin cells end up where? That’s right. Tons of skin cells end up in your carpet every single day. That’s disgusting. Pull out that vacuum and start vacuuming! So, what else is hiding in there? Well, let’s see. In the carpet fibers of the average home, you are likely to find dirt tracked in from outside, dried up boogers from kids, crumbs from movie nights, lots of lost hair, dust that’s been accumulating, drool from your dog, and so much more. If that doesn’t gross you out, what will? Needless to say, lots of nasties accumulate in your carpet fibers without you noticing. So, the best thing you can do for your home and anyone in it that spends time on your carpet is to book an appointment with Zerorez® to have your carpet professionally cleaned ASAP.
Fourth, your carpet looks gross.
Carpet that looks darker in some places than others has an obvious need for cleaning. In fact, if you’ve waited for your carpet to get so dirty that you can physically see when walking by, you’ve waited way too long to have your carpet cleaned. So don’t wait any longer. Just get it cleaned.
Fifth, a dirty carpet creates a dirty house.
You may have heard us say before that your carpet is your home’s biggest air filter. It’s true. Just like the filters in your HVAC system needs annual attention, so does your carpet. When carpet gets clogged with dust, dirt, and other nasties, that can end up in your air. And what is in stuffy air? You don’t want to know, and you don’t want to breathe it.
Sixth, cleaning with soap causes CRUNCHY CARPET.
You just had your carpets cleaned a few weeks ago, just after finishing the daily household chores, and notice you have crunchy carpet after vacuuming. How could this be? Many traditional carpet cleaning methods include the use of soaps or detergents to extract dirt from carpet fibers. This process is done by mixing the soap with hot water and pushing it into the carpet with high pressure. This process can do a good job of drawing out all the dirt and grime from within the carpet fibers – but this is in exchange for leaving soapy detergent water behind deep in the carpet. When soap is left behind to dry into the carpet, you get a result very comparable to washing your hair with shampoo and then not rinsing it out… it becomes crunchy! And even a bit sticky. Crunchy carpets full of dried soaps and even chemicals have the potential of irritating the skin in the form of rashes or itching to children or pets that are constantly making contact with your carpet.
This is one of the reasons why Zerorez® believes in green carpet cleaning. Our patented cleaning process leaves no soaps or detergents behind to make your carpets crunchy! We are all about using our green technology that is safe for you, your family, your carpets, and the environment.
