Professional carpet cleaning is a great idea if you want your floor to continue to look good, smell clean and last for longer. But did you know that proper cleaning might also be a matter of life and death? Here is why great carpet cleaning in your office is far more important than you might think.
Like any type of floor covering, carpet can pick up a lot of harmful bacteria and germs. This can be associated with spills, your pets or anything that gets dragged in to the room on the bottom of your feet. Whilst most people have nothing to worry about, young children can easily pick up these germs as they spend a long time playing close to the ground. They can become very ill from this. Whilst many other types of floor covering can be wiped clean with ease, the fibers of carpets can mean that they are much harder to clean without using specialist equipment. This is why you should always consider calling in a professional.
Carpet which has been sodden and has then been allowed to dry out slowly can become a breeding ground for toxic mold. The mold spores which are associated with mold growth can cause serious respiratory illnesses if they are inhaled. Ingesting the same spores can also cause sickness and diarrhea. Brushing, dusting or vigorously scrubbing at mold patches can cause the spores to become airborne, meaning that you are more likely to breathe them in. As well as being bad for your health, mold will gradually eat away at your carpet. Carpet cleaning experts will know the best mold removal and remediation techniques to help you to get rid of the mold from your carpet without you putting your health or the health of your family at risk.
Slip and Trip hazards
If you use incorrect cleaning techniques on a carpet (such as excessive water or heat) then the structure of the carpet may be affected, for example the carpet could shrink slightly or become uneven. Poor cleaning can also degrade the non-slip coating on the base of the carpet, meaning that it could move about more easily on the floor. Any changes to the intentional design of the carpet may mean that it is no longer fit for purpose, because it could become a slip or trip hazard. Professional carpet cleaners will do everything within their power to ensure that they leave your carpet looking as good as it did on the day you bought it.
