carpet cleaning orange county

I vacuum my carpets daily. Isn’t that enough?

No!  While vacuuming is recommended at least twice weekly, and daily, if you have pets, it only gets the surface dirt.  You still need to do that, whether you live in Orange County or elsewhere, but it’s just not enough.

Here’s why: Vacuuming does not get dirt, debris and all kinds of shuddering-promoting things (like food particles or insect parts) that embed deeply into the fibers. Only steam can get at that and, if it’s left there, it will just fray and cut the fibers.

That also affects indoor air quality, which can actually be worse than outside.

Bixby Plaza Carpets and Flooring, the premier source for carpet cleaning in Orange County, tells exactly why you should get your carpets professionally cleaned.

  1. You’ll save money.  Orange County homeowners know this: When a fully qualified person steams your carpet, the cleaning is thorough and exact. It’s like anything else; the better you take care of it, the longer it lasts.

If you just allow a stain to set, it will be so difficult to remove that your rug will always look dirty and dull. You wouldn’t just let a stain set on a blouse would you?  No, of course not, you’d most likely run it to the dry cleaners.

But here’s what you really need to know about saving money: Almost every single carpet manufacturer insists that professional cleaning be done at various intervals.  It’s in your warranty and if you don’t comply, damages, even those that are no fault of yours, may not be covered.

  1. It will keep mold and mildew from growing.  It only takes 12 hours for it to start growing  When you steam-clean, water goes all the way down to the padding and that can take days to fully dry. The steam rental machines that are found in hardware stores and supermarkets just don’t have the kind of power needed to suck out the moisture; the pros will also use powerful fans.

That’s always a concern, but especially in Huntington Beach where there’s already plenty of moisture. Since it’s known for surf beaches, it’s easy to track moist soil in on the carpet from soles of your shoes, making professional cleaning more important than ever.

Orange County is known for high style, fashion-conscious living while, at the same time, residents also enjoy the outdoors, athletic lifestyle.  Come into the showroom at Bixby Plaza Carpets and Flooring so we can tell you more about cleaning, for the carpet that is.
