The fact is, the best thing you can do for your carpets is have them regularly cleaned by a professional carpet cleaning company.
Why should I clean my Carpet?
Bio contaminants, volatile organic compounds, combustible products, asbestos, dust mites, chemical contamination, migrated outdoor pollutants, insoluble particulate soling, grease and oil deposits, sand, soil, dirt, food particles, pesticides allergens and of course, stains.
BIG words, but what do they mean? Quite simply, your carpet acts like a sink; it filters and collects soil, bacteria, allergens and pollutants from the indoor environment. This collection and filtering process allows a carpet to trap contaminants within its construction.
But like any filter, your carpets need to be regularly cleaned.

It’s the build-up of dirt and soil which causes damaging wear to your carpet far more than the foot traffic that impacts on its surface. Foot traffic only grinds the soil against the fibres and causes them to gradually dull and wear away.
Major carpet manufacturers recommend that you have your carpets cleaned every 12-18 months.
It just makes sense to have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly – not just to maintain their look and feel but also because cleaning removes bacteria, germs and the substances on which the organisms live.
