Spring is officially here!  And spring means flowers, outdoor activities, excursions in downtown Wilmington and, of course, trips to the beach.  It also means spring cleaning.  Love it or hate it, spring cleaning gives your house a much-needed sprucing up, and can go a long way in making you feel happy to be home.  When you’re making your spring cleaning checklist, don’t forget to have your carpets professionally cleaned too!

Improved Air Quality

Like it or not, your carpet can harbor dirt, dust, allergens and other airborne contaminants.  Regular vacuuming can keep these particles down, but will not remove all of them.  Sometimes, it can even disrupt them and send them back into the air, aggravating spring allergies.  By having your carpet professionally cleaned, not only are you doing your carpet a service, you are also taking a huge step in improving the air quality of your home.

Remove Bacteria

Not only can carpet fibers harbor allergens and other contaminants, it can also hold harmful bacteria and germs.  A professional spring cleaning service penetrates deep into the fibers, lifting out all contaminants, including bacteria and germs.  They are then removed from your home and properly disposed of.

Prevent Mold

You can clean your carpets yourself, but sometimes, in doing so, you don’t always remove all of the moisture.  When your carpet doesn’t dry properly, mold can grow, which causes multiple issues.  With a professional cleaning, your carpet is dried properly, preventing this problem from occurring.

Remove Stains

Over the course of the year, your carpet may be subjected to stains.  Whether you have children who make messes, you hosted family for the holidays and food fell on the floor, or dirt was tracked in from outside, these stains are unsightly.  Not only that, but they can be very difficult to remove.  A professional cleaning lifts these stains, and you’ll forget they were ever there in the first place.

Restore Your Carpet’s Appearance

When dirt and other debris is tracked into your home, it is ground into the carpet fibers, dulling the color as well as the texture.  By eliminating these particles with a professional cleaning, you prevent the destruction to carpet fibers, and restore your carpet to a like-new appearance.

Your carpet is a major investment, and performs many important functions, including comfort, insulation and beauty.  A professional cleaning helps to maintain the quality of your carpet, and ensures that it stays beautiful for many years to come.  So, when you’re ready to schedule your carpet’s spring cleaning, be sure to call Wilmington’s carpet cleaning experts at Oriental Rug and Carpet Cleaning Specialists.
