Professional Carpet Cleaning
A common belief among homeowners is that frequent vacuuming is all they need to do to keep their carpets clean. However, the fact is that even if your carpet looks clean, vacuuming and self-cleaning will not sufficiently remove all of the dirt, dust, and bacteria out of your carpets that collects there, as this can only be achieved with a professional cleaning. If you have not recently had your carpets cleaned, here are a few of the signs you may not be aware of that can indicate the need for professional carpet cleaning in your Dekalb IL home.
You Are Experiencing Allergy Problems
One of the easiest ways to tell that your carpets need to be professionally cleaned is if your indoor allergies suddenly worsen. As was previously mentioned, when your carpets are not cleaned properly, dust, dirt, sweat, pet dander, and a variety of allergens become trapped in your carpet. This can severely affect your allergies, is likely the cause of any sudden changes in the severity of your symptoms, and indicates that you should have your carpets cleaned as soon as possible.
Your Carpet Has Begun to Look Dull or Dirty
It happens to every homeowners at one time or another. You go to move a piece of furniture for the first time in months, and you are shocked by how much lighter, and cleaner, the carpet underneath your furniture is. Your first instinct may be to assume that your carpet is simply aging and will need to be replaced. However, unless your carpet is very old, it is more likely that it needs a professional cleaning. This furniture test is a prime example of the inefficiency of self-cleaning your carpet. Professional cleaning is the only way to get all of the dirt out, and return the fresh clean look to your floors.
