Like all good homeowners, you love your carpets and take good care of them. Giving them a weekly vacuum and quickly dealing with spills and stains goes a long way towards keeping your carpets healthy and fresh. However, over time, pollutants build up until the point is reached when you really need a professional Sydney carpet cleaning service. Here’s how to tell when you’ve reached that point.
The first sign is the appearance of stubborn stains. Some stains simply refuse to budge. Pet stains, coffee and wine stains, ink and oils stains, can all be very hard to remove. Dealing quickly with the spillage helps, but is probably not enough especially if you have deep pile carpets.
These stains can cause foul odours and can damage the fibres of your carpet over time so it’s an issue you really want to deal with if you love your carpets.
You can try to treat the stains at home. However, one problem with home cleaning is that though the stains are treated, the residue remains in the fibres. The result is that your carpets still look soiled. Professional deep cleaning is the only solution.
Another warning sign is the presence of mould. This occurs when your carpet become damp. If your carpets start to give off a musty smell, it’s time to take action.
Mould and mildew flourishes in a damp environment so your first job is to identify the source of the moisture.
Your mould might have been due to some serious spillage that wasn’t dried out. Or it could result from a leaking pipe or radiator. In the latter case, get the leak fixed and have your carpets deep cleaned to remove the mould.
Untreated mould in your carpets is a serious problem. Other than the stench and possible damage to your carpets, these fungi can also cause health problems such as allergies.
Carpets aren’t cheap so taking care of them is a smart way to protect your investment. Regular cleaning at home coupled to professional Sydney carpet cleaning services will ensure your carpets will give you pleasure for many years to come.
