During all of our years in the carpet cleaning business, we have learned that more – much more – people clean their wall to wall carpet during the summer than in the winter time.
They call us to complain about the dirt, stains, and especially about the odors rising in their house, wall to wall, as they ask for immediate assistance.
Why Does That Happen?
Wall to wall carpet gets dirty all year long, as they collect dirt and dust, yet the cold keeps it buried deep within its fibers, shrunken and mostly unnoticeable. But then comes summertime with all of its glory and humidity and allow for the expansion of the carpet’s fibers, releasing the hidden dirt out. Once that happens, it also becomes a perfect breeding ground for dust mites, bacteria and a whole host of problems.
What Can i Do?
You should really do two things to avoid your entire house spreading bad odor comes summer –
1) Keep regular maintenance that includes weekly vacuuming, treating stains and spots right as they happen, and keep a clean household in general – in the end, all dirt and dust will find it way into the carpet.
2) Use a professional carpet cleaning service at least once a year, for a truly deep cleaning that vacuuming simply can’t achieve. You will keep your carpet value, as well as avoid unwanted odors.
Have a happy & joyful summer!
