Extend the Life of Your Vacuum

While you’re a faithful carpet cleaner, you may not realize that excessive vacuuming on your own is actually shortchanging its life span.  Here’s what you need to know about yours, so that you can instinctively turn to the professionals when your carpets need a deep clean—and thus, save yourself money, time and your vacuum’s life span in the process!

Moisture is a Death Sentence for Your Vacuum

How long has it been since you’ve replaced your vacuum? While carpets, rugs and even upholstery get repaired or replaced from time to time, it’s your trustworthy, well used vacuum that tends to get overused (and abused!) You don’t need to have a large family of eight (along with multiple furry four leggers!) to put some wear and tear on yours. In fact, one of the fastest ways to shorten the life span of your vacuum (in any size family or household) is by using it as your only form of deep carpet cleaning—as opposed to enlisting the help of professionals to do the job for you every couple of months.

The moisture that lives in your carpet is a death threat for vacuums. In fact, if you’re prone to vacuuming your carpets several times a week (or just simply on the weekends) your vacuum could be on its last leg. That’s because everything from a small water spill to a floor leak below the surface of your carpets is harming your vacuum by causing erosion, mildew and mold. Does it need to? No, not when you can enlist the help of professional carpet cleaners to do the cleaning job that your vacuum just isn’t meant to.  

Commercial Vacuums Can’t Deep Clean Your Carpets

Carpets are an investment, and because they are, you strive to keep them in the best shape possible. But how do you know your carpet is in good health? When you simply depend on your vacuum to suck up all of the dirt, food and pet stains, you may be missing what is invisible to the eye. For example, your vacuum isn’t made to clean deep down in your carpet's fibers, getting rid of pet hair and odor which has seeped into the crevices of your flooring.

Maintaining a truly healthy home is a twofold process. For daily and weekly cleaning, vacuuming is one of the best ways to keep your carpets looking great. But, for a truly deep clean that will eliminate all those “accidents” over time that you have forgotten about, trust Chem-Dry to do the job. As the world’s leading carpet cleaning professionals, they’ll get in, get out and allow you to expand the life cycle of your carpets and your vacuum! \
