Why You Should Have Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned

Updated: Jan 21, 2020

Having a professional carpet cleaner regularly clean your carpets is important.  Obviously, you should vacuum your carpets at least once a week. But, this will not get deep into the carpet and remove everything. If you are like most people, you buy cheap consumer residential carpet cleaners from Walmart, to save money, instead of hiring a professional. However, hiring a professional can actually save you money in the long run. Not only will they do a better job cleaning your carpets, but they may also prevent serious problems later on.

Most people invest in their carpet with the purpose of keeping it for several years. While carpet is not as expensive as hardwood or stone flooring, it is still a long-term investment. Carpet is made of different fibers and comes in a variety of colors, textures, and lengths.  Unfortunately, many people have their carpet installed and then neglect to properly take care of it.

Carpet needs to be maintained and this means vacuuming and having a professional clean your carpets regularly.

Why a professional?

Professional carpet cleaners are certified, and this is one of their biggest strengths. This is important as a certified carpet cleaner will know how to clean and restore every type of carpet in your home. A professional also knows how to treat spots and remove them from the carpet. Carpet Cleaning companies like Lee Carpet Cleaning also have the equipment required to adequately remove the dirt and stains from the carpet. Because of this, you should always hire experts as they have the training to do the best job possible every time. They have seen almost any issue and know how to deal with it immediately.

What can happen if you don’t hire an expert?

You may be surprised how much damage can be caused to carpet by improper cleaning.  One of the biggest dangers is the possibility of putting too much moisture into the carpet. Moisture grows mold and it is not uncommon for mold to grow in or underneath carpet which can be harmful to your family. Plus, if the wrong equipment is used, the fibers of the carpet could be damaged. Meaning, your carpet will need to be replaced much quicker.

None of this would happen if you hire a professional.

What to expect from Lee Carpet Cleaning?

When our professional carpet cleaners arrive they will analyze the entire area to be cleaned. Next, they will vacuum the carpet to remove dry soil. This step basically removes everything that is loose in your carpet fibers. We will then use a cleaning agent to break dirt away from the fibers of the carpet.

After that, the extraction process begins. This removes nearly everything that shouldn’t be in your carpet. Once the cleaning is done, your carpet needs to dry. This takes much less time to dry when a professional has cleaned the carpet. Many consumer carpet cleaners don’t remove enough moisture, and this is what leads to issues later on.

We suggest having your carpets cleaned at least twice each year. This will ensure that your carpets will look better and smell better. Plus, it will reduce allergies in your family and guests! It can also make your carpets last much longer saving you a significant amount of money. Caring for your carpet cost less than replacing it!
