Carpets have a remarkable way of “hiding” pollutants, pet hair and dirt, but you can’t get rid of any of this until you get deep into the fibers.
One question we hear a lot about carpet cleaning from our Orange County customers is, “Will it hurt my carpets?” Our response: “No!, and it actually may boost your carpets, whether you live in a water-driven athletic environment like Orange County, or anywhere else.
Dirt can act like little razor blades and tear into the fibers so it’s obviously something you don’t want. It’s also like anything else. The better you take care of it, the longer it will last.
Especially for a place like you, Huntington Beach, you’ll want to get professional carpet cleaning, you’re known for your surf beaches, so there’s a lot of opportunity to drag soil and moisture in on your shoes.
Here are some other questions we often hear about carpet cleaning at Bixby Plaza and Carpets in Orange County.
I Vacuum All the Time--Isn’t That Enough?
No! While regular vacuuming is considered an important part of routine care, it gets only the surface dirt, and not the stuff trapped in fibers. They’ll just stay put until there’s deep cleaning.
That’s great if anyone in your family has allergies or asthma, because it means pollutants will never become airborne.
If your family sits on the floor, however, it can be a different story. They’ll be sitting on some pretty gross things. Yuk!
My Pet Coughs and Gags Every time I Clean the Carpets. Why?
Do you hire a professional, or do you use one of those DIY rental machines? A big mistake is to use too much soap, and then not rinse well enough. Either way, if it happens, time to make a change.
Won’t it Cause Mold and Mildew to Grow?
No, because professionals use high-powered fans to dry quickly and thoroughly. It only takes 12 hours for mold to start growing, and carpets get soaked down to the padding, so air-drying isn’t a good thing, in this case.
