If you have just had new carpets installed in your home you should be aware there is a warranty period which comes along with them. Many installers will have a clause in their warranty documents which says you must have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once every 18 months or the warranty will be invalid. If your carpets are slightly older, it’s recommended you have them cleaned by a professional every 12 months.
Whilst people think they’re keeping their carpets clean by using a vacuum on a regular basis or by giving their carpets a wet clean every now and then, this isn’t enough to really get the dirt that’s deep inside the carpet fibers. If you’re in the Lancaster area you should think about using carpet cleaners in Lancaster PA. These people know everything about carpets no matter what type of material they’re made from.
You should know your carpet is actually a very good filter when it comes to tiny particles of dust and dirt that fly about your home. The fibers in your carpet will capture these and keep them out of the air. However, they should be properly removed to keep the air in your home fresh and clean. If you don’t they will eventually build up and can cause a problem.
All carpet cleaners in Lancaster PA have a comprehensive system to make sure they get every inch of dirt out of your carpet. They will start with something called a pre-clean. This means they’ll use industrial strength vacuums to pre-clean your carpets. The next stage is a pre-spray. Your team of cleaners will use a detergent that suspends the dirt in your carpets.
After this has been done, your carpets will have the pre-spray agitated. The reason for this is so the detergent can make contact with the dirt particles in your carpets. Your carpets will then be rinsed with hot water using special cleaning equipment which is truck mounted. Your carpets will now be completely free of dirt but will need some grooming so they look nice.
Of course, you will have to wait for your carpets to dry once the process has been completed and this can take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours. It all depends on what type of carpets you have and how deep the pile is. All this sounds like it’s a very expensive procedure but think about the money you’re spending on your own detergents. Also wet/dry vacuum cleaners are expensive to buy and are not as efficient as those used by the professionals.
If you make sure you do this at least once every year, your carpets will last longer and you’ll have a much fresher and cleaner house as a result. If you need for repairs done to your carpets such as carpet seams which are loose or burn marks, your carpet cleaners can address this problem for you at the same time. Just be sure to point these issues out when they visit your home.
