Many homeowners trust regular vacuuming to keep their carpets clean assuming that if they look clean - they are clean. Unfortunately, skipping regular deep carpet cleaning can lead to a number of problems, from shortening the carpet’s lifespan to unpleasant odors to an unhealthy home environment.
That’s why, at Chem-Dry®, our team recommends starting the year off right with deep carpet cleaning and our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process.
What Is Deep Carpet Cleaning?
To understand why deep cleaning your carpets is a must, it’s important to understand what deep carpet cleaning refers to. This process goes beyond surface cleaning and what the eye can see on the exterior of the carpet to remove compacted dirt, deep-set soil, stubborn stains, and musty odors.
With HCE, we reach the dirt and grime that's trapped deep in your carpet fibers, providing an in-depth clean and an undeniable feeling of freshness for your home. Moreover, this process does a better job than steam cleaning. Steam cleaning will leave your carpets soaking wet and could actually make them dirtier by creating the perfect environment for mold growth.
Why Vacuuming Can’t Replace Deep Carpet Cleaning
Vacuuming plays an essential role in keeping your home clean, but it doesn’t deep clean your carpets. Even the best vacuum can’t reach the depths of your carpet where layers of dirt and grime have become compacted into carpet fibers.
While vacuuming can clean the surface and keep your carpet from looking dull, it does not completely remove all the dirt and grime. For that, a more in-depth process of extracting deep-set dirt is necessary.
When you think about all of the foot traffic that your carpet receives, as well as the ample dust and airborne contaminants it traps in its fibers day in and day out, it’s easy to see why deep cleaning is so essential. Deep cleaning becomes even more important when you add children and pets to the equation.
Advantages of Deep Carpet Cleaning
It’s easy to postpone deep carpet cleaning in today’s busy world. Whether you tell yourself your floors look fine as-is or you don’t notice any musty smells in your home, it’s important to keep in mind the many advantages that make this type of cleaning a must. Here are just a few.
Boosting Home Health
You know how important it is to clean the filters in your HVAC unit, and you may even use an air filter in your home to improve your indoor air quality. However, you may not realize that deep cleaning your carpets is just as important if you want to have healthy air in your home.
Your carpets are responsible for pulling dust and other airborne particles out of the air you breathe, contributing to the air filtration process in your home. Unfortunately, when your carpets become overwhelmed with contaminants, they can no longer perform this role to the best of their ability.
Regular deep cleaning ensures your carpeting is always prepared to continue enhancing the air quality in your home rather than detracting from it.
Preserving Your Investment
Whether you’ve chosen carpets and area rugs because you love the color and warmth they bring to your living space, the plush feel under your feet, or sound reduction abilities, your carpets also represent an investment. Protecting this investment does not only extend to vacuuming and avoiding major spills and stains.
With deep cleaning, you can make sure you’re preventing dirt and soil from causing unnecessary friction that can prematurely wear down thin carpet fibers. Furthermore, this type of cleaning can help avoid the discoloration of your carpets over time and minimize the appearance of wear patterns.
Removing Stains and Odors
Deep cleaning can also take care of the removal of stains and odors. While our HCE process does an excellent job of combatting stains and unpleasant smells, you can also opt for add-on services to address specific issues while enjoying the benefits of deep cleaning.
For example, we offer a Stain Fighter Package that adds a protective solution to your carpet during the cleaning process. Our Specialty Stain Removal service is ideal for remedying even the toughest stains. And our Fresh & Healthy Home Premium Package includes an odor removal treatment that can transform how you feel in your home.
