HOW DIRTY IS YOUR CARPET
How Dirty Are Your Carpets
When was the last time you had your carpets deep cleaned?
Your carpets are likely a staple in your home, providing a warm, comforting environment and seamlessly tying together décor. They'll act as safe play mats for children and cosy beds for furry friends. They may see the odd spillage or muddy footprint now and again, but on the whole, you've managed to keep them looking fresh and clean.
Or have you?
The Problem with Carpets
While your carpets may look clean to the naked eye, carpets that don't undergo regular deep cleaning can harbour a multitude of dust, dirt, bacteria and allergens. In fact, estimates suggest that your carpets could be up to 4,000 dirtier than a toilet bowl. With this in mind, it’s clear to see that a quick vacuum once a week just isn’t going to cut it!
Unfortunately, the fibres that make up your carpet are great at capturing and clinging onto dirt and dust particles, as well as providing the perfect environment for germs to thrive. Dead skin cells, pet hair, organic compounds and mould are also common culprits for dirtying your carpets. If left untreated, these particles build up and not only affect the overall appearance of your carpet but could also start to impact the hygiene of your home.
How can I Ensure my Carpet is Clean?
While getting your carpets 100% clean may seem impossible, there are a few things you can do to ensure your carpets areas free from dirt, dust and bacteria as possible:
1. Vacuum as often as possible – while vacuuming won’t necessarily remove the particles that are embedded deeper into your carpets, it will ensure that surface dust and dirt particles are removed. This will prevent them from being pressed further into the carpet with frequent use.
2. Use carpet protectors – again, carpet protectors won't eliminate dirt and dust entirely, but they will do what they say on the tin. Protectors like we use here at Spring Clean help to form a protective layer on your carpet, meaning dirt, dust, and germs are less likely to cling to the carpet fibres. It also means stains remain on the surface rather than soaking through and worsening the issue. For more information on our carpet stain guard protection, please click here.
3. Enlist a professional to deep clean your carpets – professional carpet cleaners use specialist equipment to lift dirt, dust and germs from the fibres of your carpet. This drastically reduces dirt build-up, not only improving the look of your carpet overall but ensuring they're as clean and as hygienic as possible.
