Coming home to a dirty carpet or filthy rug each night is always a downer. Dirty carpets not only look bad but they may also smell bad. They harbor dirt, dust, mold, and bacteria, which become airborne every time anyone walks on them. This may result in your family getting sick after inhaling spores and microbes that cause disease.
Our cleaning technicians at Sunbird Carpet Cleaning Glen Cove know how to clean your rugs and carpets, and do professional cleaning of your upholstery as well. We do it quickly and efficiently. Professional cleaning services can impact your health positively in many ways. It's possible to feel assured that the dirt and dust in your carpets has been removed and take breaths of much fresher air in your home within minutes of having this service done.
Below are 11 different reasons why a rug cleaning specialist really is your best solution. You may find after reading them that there were quite a few new things you didn't know. Some of them are mind-staggering and may help you decide it's time to hire a professional rug cleaner.
Over time, deep dirt and dust accumulate on every rug. Their elimination is very important and it's a maintenance problem that a rug cleaning specialist can help with. A dirty floor covering creates an unhygienic situation in your home. It affects the quality of your indoor air.
You can think of your rug as a filter that accumulates dirt and dust. Day by day your "filter" is accumulating more dirt and dust until it gets to the point where it can no longer accept any more particles. In the meantime, this doesn't mean the rest of your house is unaffected. The dirt and dust also accumulates on your furniture and in your air ducts.
As little as twice a year may be all it takes to prevent this from happening when this is done right. Our professional cleaning technicians have commercial truck-mounted equipment that can extract the dirt and dust that you wouldn't be able to remove on your own. With over 15 years of experience, we know where the dust and dirt are lurking - places that the average person would miss - as well as have the ability to suction out more dirt than home carpet cleaners.
Rugs can harbor allergens and bacteria. You need to hire a professional rug cleaner for allergen and bacteria elimination to get it removed fully and properly. The hot water from our professional truck to equipment gets as hot as 250 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a lot hotter than the water that comes out of your tap. The temperature of the water is enough to kill bacteria that is deep inside your carpet.
The superior suction on our truck's vacuum then removes the allergens and bacteria more deeply and thoroughly than diy rug cleaners. As the water flows through the carpet fibers into the waste container, it pulls the bacteria and allergens out with the rinse. And since the carpet is a lot drier with our equipment, this cuts down on any bacterial growth.
One study found that it took 10 vacuuming cycles to remove most of the dust in a carpet. One vacuuming cycle was 5 minutes vacuuming for every 2 foot by 2 foot section of carpet. It took 60 vacuuming cycles to remove 90% of the embedded dust from the carpet.
Another study found that about 50% of the fungi, dust mites, and dust allergens were removed from carpeting when four passes of the vacuum moving at a rate of 21.65 inches/second were made on a carpet. This was published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene in 2014.
Having the right equipment is the key to a quality result, and a professional always has it and knows how to use it effectively. Professional truck to equipment has the ability to strongly suck up dirt greater than any type of do-it-yourself carpet cleaning machines you can buy. The stubborn stains on rugs and dirt succumb to this "reverse tornado" honing its tip directly into your carpet.
This superior sucking power picks up all the water that was used in the process as well, taking far less time for your carpet to dry. And since the carpet is a lot drier with our professional equipment, this cuts down on any bacterial growth. The right equipment also includes specialized detergents, pre-treatment chemicals, stain removers, and sealants.
