Springtime! Isn’t this an exciting time of the year? When we shed the “weight” of winter and make way for those long, lazy summer days…..And I’m not talking about literal “winter weight” that we may have picked up from one to many cookies or too many nights on the couch with a good movie and a pan of brownies.
No. The winter “weight” I’m referring to is lurking inside your carpet. I read somewhere once that there can actually be up to 8 pounds of dirt and grime that gets pulled out of your carpets when they are professionally cleaned. Yuck! And if that isn’t enough of a reason to call then here are 4 more……
Reason #1: Your carpet warranty requires it. You know, your “warranty”, that little thing that holds the manufacturer responsible for the quality of your carpet. Well, it can actually become “void” if you don’t hold up your end of the bargain and maintain your carpet properly. The majority of carpet warranties state very simply: "Have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 months".
Reason #2: Your carpet requires it. That’s right. Simply put, your carpet will wear out and look terrible very fast if it is not properly cleaned at least one time per year. Even if you vacuum your carpets daily, you cannot remove all of the dry soils and oils that build up in your carpet from daily living. The dry soils actually cut at the carpet fibers and can create permanent “traffic lanes”. And oils, even from our skin, get on the carpet fibers and attract dirt that breaks down carpet fibers. Only professional cleaning can remove this dirt and oil build up and restore or prevent your carpet from looking worn before it’s time.
Reason #3: Your health requires it. Even if your carpets do not look dirty, they are. Once, they appear dirty you have let them go too long. Can you imagine if you never cleaned your bedding because it didn’t look dirty? Gross! The same can be said about your carpets. Cleaning them professionally maintains the overall cleanliness of your indoor living environment, sanitizes the carpet, reduces allergens and improves indoor air quality.
Reason #4: Your pocketbook requires it. Yes, if you don’t call me this month not only are you putting one of your home’s most expensive investments (your carpet) at risk, but you will also be passing up a great opportunity to grab one of my best “Spring Specials”.
