Due to the modern day environment, created by double glazing and central heating, modern homes are pretty darned airtight. And, airtight homes leave allergens, airborne bacteria and carpet mites no place to settle but in your carpeting. Carpet mites (normally microscopic) can vary in size, and are the leading cause of allergy and asthma attacks in the home. They thrive on carpet fibers, dust particles, and skin particles. Human adults spend a minimum of 2,190 hours in bed each year, and a minimum of 5,100 hours in the home itself. Regular vacuuming and spot cleaning help, but they are not enough. Carpets also need to be professionally cleaned on a regular basis to get the dirt and stains that settle deep within the carpet fibers and down into the padding as well to remove mites, dust, fleas, pet fur and dander and dead skin.
How Often Should I Have My Carpets Professionally Cleaned?
Many carpet manufacturers and the IICRC recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned at least twice per year, depending on how much wear and tear your carpet receives from foot traffic, children, pets, smokers and other contributors to dirt, stains and carpet wear. The following chart, provided by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IIRC), will help you determine how often you’ll need to have your carpets cleaned:
When it’s time to have your carpets professionally cleaned, call Champion Carpet Care Company. We use low moisture hot water extraction for lifting dirt and stains. Low moisture hot water extraction offers all the benefits of hot water extraction but uses a lot less water. Carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers recommend hot water extraction because it’s the only method that deep cleans the carpets, leaving them fresh and contaminant free. Among the manufacturers that recommend hot water extraction are Shaw Carpet Ind, the largest carpet manufacturer in the world. DuPont and many other manufacturers actually require the hot water extraction method for carpet cleaning to honor their warranties. Many carpeting trade unions also recommend hot water extraction, including the Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), California Fabric Institute (CFI) and the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA).
Champion Carpet Care Company uses truck-mounted systems that heat the water to 240 degrees whenever possible to kill dust mites, remove allergens, lift dirt and stains and neutralize odors, including pet odors. For condos, high rise apartments, high rise office buildings and other places where the hoses from truck-mounted systems won’t reach, we use portable cleaning units.
Champion Carpet Care Company technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and are specially trained to break down and remove tough stains such as coffee, rust, paint, oil and grease, ink and pet stains. Please specify your special stain needs, so that our technician will be prepared with the best cleaning agents to accommodate your needs. The cleaning agents we use are biodegradable and non-toxic. They are safe around kids, elderly people, asthma and allergy sufferers, pets and house plants.
Pet Stain Removal
When pet urine dries, it forms crystals. These crystals are the source of the odor. Many carpet cleaning agents simply mask remaining odors by spreading perfumes, oils or other odor masking agents. The odor continues to return because the crystals reactivate their odor in moist conditions. On top of that, if the urine is not completely cleaned up, the residue soaks deep into the carpet fiber, which can cause permanent discoloring. It may even soak into the padding and the flooring underneath.
Why take a chance with your carpeting? Call Champion Carpet Care Company ASAP! We have cleaning agents with natural enzymes that eat away the residue of your pet’s accident(s) and eliminates the odor for good.
