Top reasons to get your carpet professionally cleaned

Some people think that vacuuming a carpet and using store-bought cleaners is enough to care for their carpet. However, every type of carpet requires a professional cleaning at least once a year.

Professional carpet cleaning in Sydney can prolong the lifespan of your carpet. It is also an effective way to keep your home safe and free from harmful allergens.

Signs that professional carpet cleaning is needed

Tell-tale signs will show you that the carpet needs professional TLC. Here are some signs you can look out for:

The carpet has tough stains

Store-bought cleaners are effective for removing some stains but not all stains. These cleaners may not be able to remove stubborn or deep stains.  You probably will not be able to get rid of those stains with vacuuming either.  And you may not know what type of cleaner to remove the stain.  Experimenting is not something you should be considering.  The consequence of a mistake is a costly repair and recarpet job.

Fortunately, a professional carpet cleaning in Sydney can help remove those stains.  They have the right equipment and solutions to treat even the most stubborn stains. The professional is trained to treat all types of stains which means you have added peace of mind when you hand the task over to the experts.

The carpet has odours

Stains are not the only indication that your carpet is in need of a cleaning. It is easy for you to get used to the smell if you are around it every day. In fact, you may not even notice that your carpet has an odour. However, if someone comes to your home, then they will likely smell the difference.   Odours are unpleasant and will require a proper deep cleaning to remove.

Pet spills or young children are major contributors to carpet odours.  Clean out pet spills gently and immediately.  If your baby was sick on the carpet, clean and dry the affected area carefully.

Keep in mind that a bad-smelling carpet can be an indication of mould or mildew. Both of these can contribute to health problems. People who are elderly or have health problems are at an increased risk of suffering health problems due to mould exposure.

If you think the odour issue has something to do with mould underneath the carpet then you must call an expert carpet cleaner to seek advice.  Mould damages carpet in irreversible ways.

The carpet has suffered water damage

Leaking roof?  Burst pipe? Flash flooding?  Whatever the cause of your carpet being flooded, it will need to be cleaned immediately.   Water damage to carpet is serious.  If untreated, wet carpet can promote mould growth resulting in irreversible damage to your carpet, the underlay and sometimes even the flooring beneath.

The only way to properly treat mould in your carpet is to seek the help of a professional carpet cleaner.

The carpet does not look new anymore

Carpets are subjected to wear and tear over time, which will cause it to look old. Many people think that they should replace the carpet once it stops looking like it is new. However, this is not necessary. The only thing that you will have to do is get a professional cleaning company to clean and restore the carpet for you.

A thorough steam clean is a deep cleansing process that removes both surface and ingrained dirt, dust and grime from the carpet.  Most carpets will look shiny and new again after a steam clean.

Someone in the family suffers from allergies

Carpets can easily retain allergens. That is why if you experience itchy eyes and sneezing, then your carpet may be the culprit. Removing those allergens can help you get rid of those allergies.

If you have a family member with respiratory problems then ensuring your carpets are steam cleaned regularly is an absolute compulsory activity.

The carpet has stains that re-appear

Store-bought stain removers can remove some household spills in your carpet. However, it is likely that the stains will re-appear. There is no need for you to keep using store-bought products because they only provide you with a temporary fix. A professional carpet cleaning will deliver long lasting results.

To minimise future staining you may want to request for an additional stain protector to be applied to your carpets after steam cleaning.  The stain protector is an added sheen to prevent staining.

You have new carpets

If you have new carpets you will want to keep them in their pristine condition for as long as you can so make sure you vacuum regularly, steam clean at least once a year, pay for a stain protector, remove any spills immediately and do your best to prevent pile packing.  You may want to also consider using mats outside the entrances/exits of your homes, rugs in high foot traffic areas and rotating heavy pieces of furniture.

It has been more than a year since you professionally cleaned the carpet

Even if your carpet does not look or smell dirty, you may still need to get it cleaned. You do not want to go longer than a year without getting your carpet cleaned. Keep in mind that if you have pets or children, then you will need to get your carpet cleaned more than once a year. Keeping your carpet cleaned is essential for ensuring that it lasts a long time.

You are thinking of listing your property

If you are thinking of listing your property for sale or for rent you will want to ensure that the property can fetch the best possible price.

Newly cleaned carpets are appealing to both buyers and renters so investing a little money getting a professional cleaner to steam clean the carpet can reap bigger return.
