Should I Wait To Clean My Carpets: Carpet Cleaning Castle Rock Co
Hi I'm Kyle Dillon the owner of TLC Carpet Care in Castle Rock Co and I get a lot of common questions about carpet cleaning from Castle Rock homeowners and one is why should I clean my carpets if they don't look dirty. Well that's a really great question. With so many things we as homeowners have to budget for why clean carpets if we don't need to?
Well first lets start with the fact that your carpets are one of the most highest replacement items in your home. The average carpet in a 2500 square foot house can cost anywhere from $15,000.00 to $25,000.00 dollars pending on grade of carpet as well as quality of padding. So that right there tells you your carpet is something to take care of as long as it can last and cleaning it is far less expensive that prematurely replacing it.
Next consider your manufactures warrantee. If you don't have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year it will void your warrantee. So if you have any problems later you will be out of luck of you haven't been cleaning.
Here is the most compelling argument/ reason. Just because it looks clean doesn't mean it is clean. Your carpets act like a giant filter collecting not just dirt and soil but thousands of other chemicals that are tracked in and out of your home daily. What's hidden beneath, pollens, bacteria form urine, dust mites a lot of critters than can affect your indoor air quality and for people with Asthma and Allergies it can take a negative toll on family members with respiratory problems. You probably didn't consider carpet cleaning associated with your family health?
Last but not least dirt is abrasive, like sandpaper slowly grinding away your carpet fibers. Look in your vacuum cleaner next time you vacuum and see if you see carpet fibers. Also soil has nitrogen in it, as the soil remains hidden deep in your carpets where your vacuum can't extract the nitrogen in the soil slowly bonds to the yarn and chemically alters the carpets dye structure. This is how carpets develop traffic area stains that can become permanent. Simply said this is how carpets get stained.
To summarize you can wait till your carpet looks dirty but by then your already staring to show premature damage.
