Hiring A Professional Cleaning Company

After we bought a foreclosure, I knew that we were going to need a little help with the place. The entire upstairs was covered in garbage, and the bathrooms looked like they had never been cleaned. It was discouraging, and I was worried about the place being unsafe for my children. I realized that I couldn't tackle the job on my own, so I started looking into hiring a professional cleaning service. I found a great cleaning company that could come out and begin work right away. They were amazing to work with, and they worked fast. This blog is all about why you should hire a professional cleaning service.

Signs You're Due For A Carpet Cleaning

People often wait for their carpet to look dirty before they have it cleaned. The problem with this approach is that it can take a really long time for your carpet to truly look dirty. Since you see the carpet every day, you basically get used to its newer, dirtier look over time, so you may not notice when the dirt finally crosses the line. Plus, by the time your carpet actually looks dirty, it has been dirty and in need of cleaning for quite a while. So, a better way to decide when your carpet needs cleaning is to watch out for these other signs.

Unpleasant Odors

Do you notice a bothersome odor in your home? Maybe you've taken out the trash, washed dirty laundry, and tackled other common smelly culprits, but the smell remains. The odor may be coming from the carpet. All it takes is a little oily, smelly residue to make your carpet stinky. There could be an old food spill that's smelling or some pet dander that's giving off an odor. Having the carpet cleaned is a great way to get rid of these odors since the hot water and detergent will remove the odorous substances themselves.

Different Colors Under Furniture

Move a piece of furniture that has been sitting on the carpet for a long time. Is the carpet that was under the furniture a different color than the carpet that's exposed every day? This is a sure sign that your carpet is pretty dirty. You notice the color change more dramatically when looking at clean and dirty carpet side by side! A professional carpet cleaning will likely return the dirty carpet to its original color so it matches the carpet under the furniture again.

Rough or Unpleasant Textures

Sometimes when a carpet is getting dirty, it starts to develop an unpleasant texture. It may feel too matted down when you touch it. Or, you might notice that it has developed a sort of rough, overly hard feeling. These changes happen due to the buildup of dirt and debris on the carpet. Sitting on a rough, dirty carpet is not fun, but carpet cleaning should restore its softer texture.

If you notice any of the signs above, then you may be due for a carpet cleaning. Most companies recommend having a carpet cleaned every 6 to 12 months to prevent the carpet from ever reaching a too-dirty state.
