Did you know your carpets and rugs can hold as much as four times their weight in dirt? And your furniture can carry just as much bacteria! Besides the harmful health hazards, keeping your fabrics clean will also make your home look and feel just like new. Here are a few signs to help identify whether it’s time you need a professional carpet, rug, or upholstery cleaning.
Stains – Most fabrics in your home come with a stain-resistant finish, but over time, the treatment can fade and leave your carpet or furniture unprotected. Thankfully, professional carpet cleaners know spot removal methods to help with tough stains. Make sure to treat the stains as soon as possible in order to avoid any health hazards.
Wear and tear – You may begin to notice a discoloration in your carpet or furniture in the most commonly used areas. This is particularly noticeable in white, cream, or light shades of fabric. A professional cleaning can help bring the fabric back to life.
Odors – It doesn’t take much for carpets, rugs, or furniture to begin to smell, especially in homes with high traffic. The odor should diminish after a proper professional cleaning. If it doesn’t, this means the odor has penetrated deep into the fabric, which is an indication of mold and mildew growth.
Increased allergies – Allergy flare-ups are a major sign that your carpet or upholstery need to be cleaned. Carpets help collect pollutants in the air, but if you don’t keep up with cleanings, the germs will begin to build up which may cause your allergies to surface. Bacteria and germs also thrive in furniture fabrics, specifically dust mites. Make sure you are scheduling regular cleanings to help prevent these germs from affecting your health.
