Carpets are a beautiful asset to any home – soft underfoot, warm, colourful and beautiful to look at. If you’ve invested in quality carpets that can last the test of time, you’ll want to make sure they look their best and are cared for, so that they last for as long as possible. A standard carpet should last between 3-5 years before it becomes frayed, but wool carpets may well last for longer if they are looked after – and wool rugs can last for decades if they are expertly maintained.
What are carpets?
Carpets are made from thick fabric floor coverings with an upper pile layer attached to backing. Carpets will typically sit on an insulating layer of underlay for comfort and warmth. There are different types of carpets and rugs. Traditionally, carpets were made from wool (woven carpets), but today many are made from nylon, polypropylene, polyester or other synthetic materials. These have the advantages of being easy to care for, more affordable and have specific properties for different parts of the interior.
The case for eco-friendly carpet cleaning services
Cleaner Cleaner also uses eco-friendly carpet cleaners, which are strong and effective – able to remove even the most stubborn stains – but without causing health problems. Some cheaper and non eco cleansers used by other steam carpet cleaning companies offer effective results, but can contain heavy metals and other chemicals that are not beneficial for health. By choosing only the highest quality eco-friendly carpet cleaners, we are assured that our customers’ carpets are safe for their families and pets to use.
How often should you steam clean carpets?
A regular steam carpet cleaning service will help to lengthen the life of your carpet, which is important if you have invested in a quality product that is designed to remain beautiful in your home or business for several years. We recommend that the professional deep carpet cleaning service is carried out twice a year as a minimum. Some Cleaner Cleaner customers prefer to have a carpet steam clean more regularly and take up other complementary services at the same time, such as upholstery cleaning.
