Summertime is a paradise for the average child. With school officially out, kids get the chance to sleep in and spend more time around the house. Have you thought about getting your carpets cleaned before summer break? A professional carpet cleaning before the summer can provide a range of benefits you probably hadn't considered.
Safer Floor Play
If you have younger children that like to spend time playing on the floor, it's especially important to have the carpets cleaned. When you wear shoes outside and then walk onto the carpet, everything outside has the potential to make its way inside, including harmful bacteria like E. Coli.
Whether your child enjoys sleeping on the floor or spends countless hours playing with their toys on the floor, they have the potential to come in contact with these bacteria. A professional cleaning can rid your carpets of harmful bacteria so that your child can spend as much time on the floor as they'd like, safely. After the cleaning, encourage your family to remove their shoes when they enter the house to limit the spread of bacteria going forward.
Better Air Quality
If you have a child that suffers from environmental allergens and they will spend a great deal of time inside during their summer break, having the carpets cleaned by a professional can improve the air quality in your home.
Dust, mold, and pet dander all settle within carpet fibers. Each time someone walks over the floor and disturbs the fibers, these allergens get tossed into the air and eventually fall back into onto the floor. This process is a vicious cycle that can create an unpleasant environment for anyone with allergies. Carpet cleaning removes these impurities to improve the air quality in your home.
During summer break, anything can happen. However, as a parent, you know that a stain, or two, on the carpet is a given. Did you know that the cleaner your carpet is, the easier it is to quickly remove stains? When carpet is heavily soiled, a thin residue builds up on the fibers that is often tacky.
As a result, when another substance spills on the carpet, it sticks to the tacky fibers, which makes it much harder to remove. When you have your carpets cleaned, this residue is removed. So, if your child spills something on the floor, it's much easier to blot or rinse the area to remove the stain.
