Cleaning your carpet is something that needs to be done even if it’s not always high on your list of priorities. But routine care and attention are critical for preserving the look and feel of the fibers, not to mention the health benefits that come with regular maintenance.
Living with a clean carpet has many advantages and giving it a periodic cleaning will keep it the carpet in excellent condition for as long as you own it. Here are just some of the ways you and your floor coverings can benefit from a call to Chem-Dry of Richmond.
Home Air Quality
Carpeting, by its very nature, is effective at trapping airborne allergens within the fibers of your material. When you or your family walk over a carpet that has accumulated a wealth of these contaminants over time, each step releases those harmful allergens into the air.
You have little choice but to breathe in those toxic impurities and pollutants unless you take the time to clean your carpet every so often.
Allowing bacteria and allergens to remain in your carpeting can give way to harsh, pungent aromas that can be tough to kick. No one wants to live in or even visit a home that smells sour and when it’s your carpet giving off a foul stench, you want to take every step possible to eliminate the problem.
A professional cleaning from Chem-Dry of Richmond can help eradicate harsh smells due to dirty carpeting.
Fighting Mold and Mildew
Homes in humid climates and regions of the country with moist air can fall victim to the growth of mold and mildew in unsanitary conditions. Both of these can have a devastating effect on the health and safety of you and your family. That’s why a periodic cleaning is so vital to the successful preservation of your carpet.
Heavy moisture is bad for your carpet regardless of whether it’s in the humidity of your air or if you live in an area that sees above average precipitation rates. When you step in from the rain you’re tracking in wetness that can seep into your carpet and get trapped underneath. Routine cleaning voids all of the harmful contributors that help mold and mildew breed.
Many manufacturers will offer their customers a warranty that covers the carpet in much the same fashion as your automobile warranty covers your car. You need to get your oil changed when due and have routine maintenance conducted or you could end up voiding your warranty.
The same thing goes for your carpet. If you don’t take care of it (and that includes an annual professional cleaning),you could also void the warranty from your carpet manufacturer, leaving you stuck paying for any repairs or replacement costs related to any problems with the material. So it only benefits you to ensure that the carpet is kept in excellent condition through periodic cleaning.
Doing without could cost you more money than if you had just called Chem-Dry of Richmond.
