Carpet Cleaning During A Pandemic

If you are like most people, carpet cleaning has taken a backseat during the pandemic. It is probably one of the last things on your mind, but it shouldn’t be. Carpet cleaning is more important now than it has ever been. Give me a few minutes of your time and let me explain why that is.

You Need To Protect Your Indoor Air Quality

Now, more than ever we need to protect our indoor air quality. These days, we are spending the majority of our time at home. This is where we now entertain ourselves and where we cook the majority of our meals.

All of that extra time in your home is likely causing an issue, that you might not have noticed. It is very likely causing a drop in your indoor air quality. More time at home and more meals cooked means that more contaminants are getting into the air. Where they end up settling is your carpet.

Your carpet is actually a fantastic air filter. It traps and holds soil, dander and pollen, keeping it out of the air. This filter has a capacity however and if it has been more than 9 pandemic months since you have had your carpets cleaned, you are likely past it.

Once your carpet is at capacity, it actually starts contributing to poor indoor air quality. Think about it, since you started spending so much time in your home, does it smell as good as it used to? Do you find yourself coughing more, your nose running or have watery eyes? If so, you likely need a carpet cleaning in Rockwall.

You Need To Protect Your Health

Your indoor air quality plays a big part in your overall health. If the air quality is poor, your lungs are likely to be irritated and that can make you susceptible to other illnesses.

A carpet cleaning can greatly improve your indoor air quality be cleaning that huge filter that is your carpet. It is the same thing as changing your air filter in your HVAC unit. But, you have to do it the right way. That means that you need steam cleaning.

Steam cleaning or Hot Water Extraction is the carpet cleaning method suggested by nearly every carpet mill. This is because it is both thorough and gentle on your carpet. Methods that limit water usage rely too much on agitation to get a carpet to appear clean. This can be damaging to the fiber and can even void your warranty in some cases.

A quality carpet cleaning will involve several steps including:

Vacuuming: Dry soil is much easier to remove than wet soil. Every carpet cleaning should begin with this step, but many cleaners like to skip it.

Pre-Treatment: A pre-treatment should be applied to the carpet and then be allowed to dwell for a few minutes to break down soil.

Rinse: A thorough flushing with a truck mounted steam cleaning unit will remove soil and any cleaning residue.
