Having the carpets cleaned can feel like a major chore; but spring is the perfect time to remove all of the dust, allergens and debris that accumulates! When our homes are closed up for the winter months the carpets collect bacteria, viruses, dust, indoor allergens, dead skin cells and various other debris. As we open up the house and spend more time outside we bring in outdoor allergens, mud, dirt, grass and other particles from the yard. Even if you regularly vacuum your carpets, dirt can remain trapped deep within the fibers. The best way to remove this dust and dirt is to have them professionally deep cleaned. 

Deep cleaning your carpets not only improves the air quality in your home, it can also increase the life span of your carpets. Manufacturers recommend that carpet be professionally cleaned at least every 12-18 months to ensure it lasts. Some carpet warranties even require that it is professionally cleaned in order to remain under warranty. We recommend checking your warranty information to ensure you do not encounter any unexpected surprises. Having your carpet cleaned this spring will rejuvenate your room and provide a more comfortable living area for your family!

Dry Cleaning vs. Steam Cleaning

Both dry cleaning and steam cleaning methods remove particles that have accumulated deep within your carpet. Steam cleaning involves a detergent solution to break up the particles that are trapped in the carpet. Hot water is then applied to the detergent and the loosened debris and detergent is removed with a high powered machine. There is a drying time involved with steam cleaning during which your carpet can’t be walked on as it dries. Dry cleaning occurs when a chemical compound is placed on the carpet that is mixed with a small amount of solution to break apart all the dirt and matter than has accumulated. This has a very short dry time and can be walked on in minutes, for this reason dry cleaning is the most popular form of carpet cleaning.

Each method has pros and cons; at Sun Coast Cleaning and Restoration we are more than happy to sit down with you to come up with the best solution for your family’s needs. Contact us today for more information on spring carpet cleaning services and click here to find out how to get 10 percent off your next cleaning service.
