For some of us, it’s a matter of being pennywise when we make the decision to do the household cleaning by ourselves. When it comes to smaller things like carpets, we’d prefer to do the cleaning ourselves instead of sending it to the professionals.
How difficult could it be? Vacuuming it once a month should be enough, isn’t it? Except that merely vacuuming doesn’t qualify as cleaning. Here are some good reasons why you should consider hiring a professional to clean your carpets:
They understand the type of product needed for each type of fabric
Not all detergents can be used to clean all types of carpets. Certain carpets require specific products due to the fibre it’s made from. Using the wrong detergent may not help you remove a stubborn stain, or worse, it could damage your carpet.
They have formulas that can remove harmful pollutants
Some of these special formulas aren’t available in the supermarkets or hardware store due to their strength. However, the professionals have them, which they use to get rid of bacteria and other pollutants hiding in your carpets. If not cleaned thoroughly, these pollutants can contaminate the air in your homes and cause you and your kids to fall sick.
You could contaminate your house by attempting to clean your own carpets
The professionals use special machines to remove pollutants from your rugs. Yet if you try to do it yourself at home, especially when there’s mould on the carpets, you could actually be spreading it around your home.
