rug-cleaning-1Everyone loves carpet. You know, that feeling when you kick off your shoes after a long day of work and walk across the heavenly softness on your lounge room floor. But carpets can actually get pretty filthy if they are not cleaned properly, and no, we’re not just talking about vacuuming.

Carpets get filled with dead skin cells, dust mites, pet hair, flees, insect faeces and many more particles that you may think twice about rubbing your face on. In fact, the average carpet can hold more than 4 times its weight in dirt. And if you have pets, it’s more than likely that they have used it as their toilet at least once.

People often become ill due to the mould and bacteria that is hiding in unclean carpet. Particles kicked up by walking on filthy carpet can be harmful for asthmatics or anyone with respiratory problems. As you can see, it’s super important to keep your carpets clean.

5027284_xl21Vacuuming is good for removing surface dirt and crumbs, but to thoroughly clean the hidden filth, you need a professional. It is recommended that carpets are professionally cleaned every 12-18 months, and most carpet manufacturers require you to have your carpet professionally cleaned otherwise the warranty may be void. Professional carpet cleaning also prolongs the life of your carpets for plenty more years of enjoyment.
