Spring Cleaning? Start With Your Carpet

Tidy Up From the Ground Up

Winter is finally on its way out. Time to change the curtains, open the windows and welcome the warm weather with open arms.

With spring cleaning upon us, now is the perfect time to take note of your carpet. Has the extra time indoors taken a toll on your carpet? Has dirt, mud and other debris found its way into those intricate fibers?

Nothing says “clean” like a freshly treated carpet. However, you want to make sure that the job is done right. A poor carpet cleaning job can be as tough on the eyes as a worn and dirty carpet. You’ll never need to worry about this with our local carpet cleaning services. Here at The Carpet Chemist, we have the professionals (AKA the carpet geeks) that you can always count on for the right results. We love ourselves some spring cleaning and will be happy to help you with yours!

Carpets Are a Breeding Ground for Germs

Just think about how often you walk across the carpet. Now think about all of the people living and visiting your home who do the same. With so much foot traffic, it’s no surprise that your carpet harbors all kinds of dirt and germs.

But just how much are we talking about? Philip Tierno is a microbiologist, immunologist and author of “The Secret Life of Germs,” where he lays down the truth about carpets. According to his findings, most carpets have about 200,000 bacteria per square inch. To put this in perspective, that’s about 4,000 times dirtier than your toilet. Yuck!

Why is this the case? Dirt and germs cling to carpets like nothing else. Nestled within the woven fibers, they become the houseguests that visit and never leave. That is, until you take care of business with a thorough carpet cleaning.

Why Carpet Cleaning Is Best Left to the Professionals

A clean carpet can make all the difference in degerming your home. Since you tackle the rest of spring cleaning on your own, why not do the same with your carpet?  

Cleaning the carpet is not the same as dusting the furniture or cleaning out the garage. Carpet cleaning is a science that requires the proper training and products to do the job right. Luckily, this is a science that we’ve perfected through the years!

Unlike a vacuum that only removes debris on the surface, our formula delves deep for a true and thorough cleaning. You’ll be able to see and feel the difference in:

  • Your indoor air quality. Over time, dust, debris and allergens will find a home in your carpet. Store-bought cleaners won’t effectively remove the debris that’s buried in the carpet fibers. Even more, these cleaners can leave behind stains and other blemishes that will exacerbate the problem rather than treat it. Using safe and eco-friendly products, we’re able to clean carpets in their entirety to help customers find relief from allergy and asthma symptoms. You’re breathing in whatever’s in your carpet. So it’s important to remove all of this debris to keep your air safe and healthy. 
  • Your home’s overall appearance. You can’t compare vacuuming to a robust carpet cleaning. If you want your carpet to look as good as the day you bought it (or better!), then you need to invest in carpet cleaning. We make our service affordable so that every home and family can always enjoy the look and cleanliness of a picture-perfect carpet. 
  • The safety of your children and pets. Though our cleaning agents are very effective, we want to assure you that they’re entirely safe, too. Our products are made from eco-friendly ingredients and pose no harm to children and pets. 
  • Future stain prevention. We believe that true carpet cleaning is about prevention as much as treatment. Once we’ve cleaned your carpet, we can apply our fiber prevention formula to help prevent future stains. Our holistic approach will help prolong the life of your carpet and prevent a future spill or mess from sabotaging your carpet cleaning investment. 

Is It Still Safe to Schedule Carpet Cleaning at This Time?

As many Americans are now working from home, we want you to stay healthy with a clean working and living environment. The Carpet Chemist is still open and continues to serve customers every day, including weekends. Rest assured that we are taking every precaution to properly sanitize and clean carpets in the safest manner possible.

If you are choosing to delay service at this time, here are some safe and helpful tips for do-it-yourself carpet cleaning

  • Do not use bleach to clean spots on your carpet. Instead, use a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water as a temporary solution.
  • Do not use laundry detergent or oils from plug-in air deodorizers to remove carpet odors. Instead, sprinkle baking soda on the carpet and let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes before vacuuming.
  • Do not use expensive over-the-counter cleaning products to clean pet urine on the carpet. Instead, use white vinegar to neutralize the alkaline urine salts and remove the odor and stains. You can then blot the area with a clean white towel.

From carpet cleaning to carpet dyeing (AKA carpet paint), we’re here to provide you with the services you need. Thank you for your continued support and we wish you and your family a safe and healthy spring.
