Are Your Carpets Crying Out For Help? If So, You Must Call Cleaning Doctor Immediately! Here’s Why…

Fact 1

Every working day, Cleaning Doctor pulls pounds and pounds of dirt, dust, sand, grit and pollutants out of our customers’ carpets all over the island. These soils and pollutants are in your carpets too! Take a look, spread the yarns apart and look deep. Dirt, sand and grit is scratching and dulling your carpets. They are grinding your expensive yarns down into those worthless fibres that fill up your vacuum cleaner. Every week you wait, your carpets gradually wear out until you have to replace them. You can significantly reduce this constant wear-away action. Having your carpets cleaned regularly, once or twice a year can add years to the life and look of your carpets.


Fact 2

While you’re down there looking, how do the traffic lanes (the areas you walk on most) feel? Oily and sticky residues, which come into your home on shoes, from the street, from pets, traffic pollution and even dead skin, are settling onto your carpet. Sticky residues grab the dirt and lock it onto the carpet. Through a process called oxidation, soils bond with the carpet becoming permanently attached to the carpet fibres and may also cause irreversible colour change. If you wait too long you are throwing away the key to unlocking dirt and soil from your carpets. You should clean before traffic lanes show up! The longer you wait between cleaning the more soiling and colour change becomes permanent.


Fact 3

Is the air in your home starting to smell stale? Have you ever noticed how a solid floor gets dusty? Have you ever seen the odd fluff ball gathering? Unless you vacuum a solid floor every day, this gathering dust floats up into the air every time someone walks by, a door slams or a window opens. These pollutants in the air are continually settling onto your floors and floating up again. The good news about carpets is that they trap settling dust. Carpets trap pollutants so you don’t breathe them over and over. To maintain health air all you have to do is to vacuum once or twice a week with an efficient vacuum cleaner. A well maintained carpet can be healthier than a wooden floor.


But even the most efficient vacuum cleaner doesn’t remove everything, so what happens when the trap gets full? You start breathing dust, dust mite debris, pollens, pollutants, fungus spores, bacteria and a long list of other really unpleasant stuff. Once your carpet’s natural filtering ability gets full it’s time for thorough cleaning – for your health’s sake. Here is more great news – have your carpets professionally cleaned regularly (once or twice a year) and you will breathe easier. Your family will enjoy a healthier home environment.


The truth about carpet cleaning is this. Carpets are just like clothes. If you were to wear the same clothes for a month, they would look awful and feel pretty tacky – they’d be dirty, un-pressed and sticky. And they wouldn’t last very long before you needed some new ones. Carpets are the same, except worse! They get harsher treatment because they are walked on regularly with shoes that have picked up all kinds of dirt and grime from public pathways, outdoor areas and. Carpets need cleaning, maybe at least once a year, to look their best and last longer. And they will also be healthier for you and your family.
