3 Signs Your Carpet Needs A Professional Cleaning

residential cleaning servicesHave you noticed your carpets lately? Like really noticed them? With the winter season behind us, it’s possible they may look and smell a little different than you remember. You may think you can do the job yourself, but it’s important to get your carpet professionally cleaned about once a year. Exactly how often you should do this depends on things like the types of carpets you have and how many people are in your household. When your carpet gets a professional cleaning, special products and machines are used to ensure the job is done right. Here are 3 signs your carpet needs a professional cleaning.

#1 It Has An Odor

Carpets like to trap odors. This is especially true for pet owners and smokers. If your pet has an accident on the carpet, you may be able to remove the stain, but not the smell. You can try using baking soda carpet cleaners, but if the odor is lingering from pet urine, it will need a deeper clean that can only be done by a professional. Sometimes we may not notice if our carpets smell. This is because we become ‘nose-blind’ from the odors slowly releasing over time. Try asking a friend to tell you truthfully if your house has a weird smell. If it does, it might be time to give your carpets a professional cleaning.

#2 The Stains Won’t Come Out

There may have been a time or two that you forgot to take your shoes off after coming inside this winter. Or maybe your dog came running inside before you had a chance to wipe their paws. If these stains, or those from everyday spills, don’t get cleaned up right away, the stain will begin set in. Even if you did clean it right away, you may have used the wrong products. A professional carpet cleaning can help lighten or completely remove old stains.

#3 Your Allergies Are Acting Up

With spring comes the start of allergy season. You may think that your headaches, sneezing, and runny noses are from spending time outdoors, but it may be coming from your carpet. Allergens can get trapped in your carpet’s fabric and fibers. This can cause health issues even after allergy season is over. Carpets can collect dirt, dust, pollen, mold, and pet dander, to name a few. They can be hard to remove, even if you’re vacuuming regularly. If someone in your home is noticing their allergies acting up, it might be time to get your carpets professionally cleaned.
