This question is asked time and time again by many different clients, be it businesses or residential properties.
First of all are the facts about what is collecting underneath the surfaces of your carpet fibres. If you consider a shelf in your house, there are perhaps a few books and objects on it and it is relatively out of the way. The dust that settles on the shelf is a mere fraction of what is buried deep in your carpet fibres, and if you think that dusting once a week is just about enough to keep it at bay, imagine a carpet that receives much more traffic, pet hairs, dirt and grit from shoes, food and drink spills and much more daily wear and tear.
On average, a human loses one million skin cells a day. This equates to 30,000 – 40,000 an hour. Of course these are going to land on furniture, carpets, surfaces. These are what you generally think of as ‘dust’ particles. These will eventually decay and the odour of which creates that nasty ‘old’ smell. Air fresheners and fabric sprays can only do so much to mask this. Let’s not forget to mention the high breeding rate of the dust mites that feed off these pieces of dead skin.
It is not just dust that lies within the carpet. Allergens and pollen from outdoors are carried in on peoples clothes and footwear. Pets are perfect for bringing in extra surprises too. Allergens can live for up to three months in your carpet fibres waiting to attack those susceptible.
Here at ProSteamUK once we are confident that your carpet can be cleaned to a satisfactory condition we begin the process. The carpet is first dry vacuumed to remove loose soils (85% of soils), after which our specialist carpet shampoo is carefully applied to stains for treatment. Using a brush agitation method we work the chemical deep into the carpet. This separates soils from the carpet fibres which we then rinse and extract using hot water. We can also apply an optional stain and soil protector for any of our domestic carpet cleaning customers in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire.
