Why is it important to clean carpet regularly?
Carpets are exposed to the environment and as a result they can be a carrier of germs that can be transferred to children. According to Carpet Cleaning Saratoga , over 100,000 dust mites can be found in around 10 square feet of carpet so it is important to clean carpets regularly. Always make sure to remove all the dirt and stain on carpets to deter illnesses.
Why is my carpet having molds and mildews?
Mold and mildew growth is mainly caused by moisture or the presence of water on the carpet. Damp carpets become attractive thriving grounds for molds. To avoid having mold and mildew problems, make sure that your carpets are always dry. If you find parts of your carpeted floors becoming damp or wet, quickly investigate the cause. It could be a leaking water pipe or a roof leak that lets rain in.
Should different cleaning methods be used for different rugs?
Rugs that are gentle, old or torn should go through a dry cleaning process. Those that are sturdy, or in better condition are better off hand washed over a water extraction machine. Like most hand woven or specialty floor coverings, the process of washing has to be gentle so as not to destroy the workmanship while removing stains and dirt.
Are carpets and upholstery made of synthetic fabrics easier to clean?
This is usually the case. Nylon and polyester fibers, in particular, do not capture and hold particles in the way their wool and cotton counterparts do. Still, before you buy any type of carpet or seating furniture, you should carefully check the color fastness and the cleaning requirements to get a clear idea of what kind of maintenance is required.
