Iowa winters are messy especially as we move closer to spring. No matter how careful we are, it’s hard to stop slushy, melted snow, ice-melt chemicals, and grit from tracking through our living spaces. Besides being a mess, over time these particles can build up and damage your carpet. Proper cleaning and removal of these contaminants is essential to maintaining a happy and healthy home. In this blog, we’ll explore why you should get that winter grit out of your carpet and get a jump on the spring season with professional carpet cleaning.
How does a cleaner carpet impact my home and family?
- Removes Bacteria and Allergens – Carpet fibers can harbor unwanted and potentially dangerous particulates, including bacteria and allergens that can be released into the home. In winter, the moisture that comes with melted snow and ice can create an unclean environment where bacteria can thrive.
- Removes Winter Chemicals- Some chemicals used to melt ice are unsafe for kids and pets, and shouldn’t be in spaces where they play and rest. Getting your carpet professionally cleaned ensures you and your loved ones won’t be exposed to any unwelcome contaminants in your home.
- Enhances Appearance – Clean carpet improves the look and feel of any room in your home. Slushy boots cause damp carpet that can grab dirt particles that remain when the carpet dries. While we’re still stuck indoors, a clean, fresh carpet can boost our mood and provide appealing spaces to play and relax.
- Prolongs Carpet Life – Grit and other contaminants grind into carpet fibers when we walk, causing damage which leads to frizzing and reduces the feel and quality of the carpet overall. In the winter, sand and ice melt crystals are tracked in on shoes and boots and settle in your carpet. A professional carpet cleaning will protect your investment in your flooring and keep your home cleaner and healthier longer.
A professional carpet cleaning ensures a clean and safe environment to live, play, and relax with family and friends. Warmer weather is just around the corner. While we’re stuck inside for a little longer, make sure you can experience your living area to the fullest. And welcome spring with a fresh home!
