There are many different components of any home, which must be cleaned, both by you, on a regular basis, and by professional cleaners, on occasion. While most surfaces need to be cleaned, using at-home cleaning techniques, fairly frequently, knowing when to clean your other surfaces and materials, in your home, is a little more difficult. Some need to be cleaned only when they are stained or clearly dirty, in some way, while others need to be cleaned, on a somewhat regular basis, no matter what. Your carpet falls into the latter category, while many types of upholstery and rugs fall into the former. Whether dealing with carpet, rug or upholstery cleaning, it is necessary to hire skilled professionals, such as Chem Dry of Des Moines, which provides cleaning services to the Des Moines area.
Since carpeted floors are one of the most common types of flooring, and all types of carpeting require regular cleaning, you may have know choice but to invest in professional carpet cleaning, on a yearly basis. While some wait longer than this, it is generally more sanitary to have it done every year. Because carpet cleaning is such a commonly needed service, there are many companies involved in the business, and many of them still use old-fashioned and damaging cleaning techniques, such as steam cleaning. Not only is steam cleaning not as effective as carbonated extraction, which is the method used by Chem Dry of Des Moines, steam cleaning is bad for the environment and potentially harmful to children and pets, if ingested. In fact, these are not even the only reasons why carbonated extraction is the far superior carpet cleaning method. It is also preferable, since it does not leave your carpet wet for nearly as long, so you do not have to spend the night out of your house. Furthermore, having a soaking wet carpet overnight is bad, as it allows plenty of time in which mold and bacteria can develop. The quicker it dries, the less of a chance there is for this to occur.
Stains are one very common problem, when it comes to your carpet, and none are more pervasive or difficult to fully remove than pet urine stains. So, when attempting pet urine removal, it is important to let the professionals try, first, unless you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing. Incorrect cleaning procedures can actually make the stain more difficult for the professionals to remove, later on. Though pet stains are pervasive among carpets, they are clearly not relegated to them. Upholstery and area rugs are also common sites of pet damage. Of course, when it comes to upholstery and area rug cleaning, the approach is a bit different than it is, with carpet cleaning. For one thing, the materials can actually be removed from the home, so the professionals can work on it, in their own environment. This is better for you, and it makes their task easier. You will get your area rug back, better than ever, when they are finished.
