Unpleasant Facts About Dirty Carpets

Here are four very good reasons to get your carpet cleaned by Home is…

1. Oily residues’ fatal attraction

Carpet cleaning removes the oily, sticky residue that that results from cooking vapours, air pollution etc, which vacuums can't take out of carpets. This residue attracts and ‘locks in’ dirt, and can cause a gradual but noticeable dulling of colour.

2. A sandpit of soil

Our professional cleaning methods remove gritty dirt and soil particles, which are driven deeply into the pile of your carpets and rugs. These particles act like sandpaper, grinding away at the fine fibres; this eventually causes them to lose their ability to bounce back, creating a flat, worn out look.

3. Improving air quality

Your carpet does a valuable job by acting as a filter that traps damaging air pollutants like pollen, fungi, chemicals, bacteria, cigarette smoke, tars and residues. Regular professional cleaning is needed to remove these trapped pollutants, before the carpet becomes ‘full’.

4. Allergic reactions

Carpets, upholstery and mattresses can become infested with dust mites, whose droppings can trigger asthma attacks; they can also trap the allergy-inflaming proteins Der p 1 (known to trigger asthma, eczema and rhinitis attacks), as well as saliva. Professional cleaning can help to control allergen levels and create a healthier home.
