4 signs you need professional carpet cleaning

13 Sep 22

If your floors are looking worse for wear, it’s time to call in the carpet cleaning experts to get them looking and feeling like new. That being said, it isn’t always obvious that your carpets need cleaning – so here are 4 things to look out for:

1 You have allergies

This one’s a biggie. When you consider your carpets can contain around 200,000 bacteria per square inch – not to mention mould, dust mites, pollen, pet dander and more – they can be a busy breeding ground for allergens. And unfortunately, regular vacuuming does a pretty poor job of getting deep into the fibers where these allergy triggers get stuck and thrive.

So if you find your allergies just won’t go away, it’s likely the allergens aren’t either. A carpet cleaning technician brings the expert skills and equipment to remove allergens at their source – so you can breathe easy, and provide a safer and more comfortable environment for you and your family.

2 You have pets and/or kids

We love pets – and the fluffier the better! But owning a dog or cat means you’ll need to get your carpets cleaned more often. Not only can they urinate on the carpet, causing stains and encouraging bacteria, they also drop dander and track all sorts of stuff into your home (which kids do too!)

By investing in regular professional carpet cleaning, you can extend the life of your carpets – and enjoy a home that not only looks and smells better, but it also more hygienic.


3 Your carpets look bad

This one seems fairly obvious, but in the busyness of life we don’t always notice that the carpets are starting to look dull and dirty. And even if we do, it’s any easy thing to put off.

So spend a few moments taking a proper look at your carpets: are they stained? Is the colour muted? Do they look older than they are? Often this is because the nasties in your carpet are affecting the fibers.

Professional carpet cleaning is the easiest, fastest way to bring them back to life and restore their gorgeous colour.

4  Your carpets smell bad

Not only can dirt, dust and dander make your carpets look old and worn, they can bring on a musty smell too. By getting rid of the things that cause it, you can enjoy fresh smelling carpets day after day.

And while it might be tempting to sprinkle some baking soda on your carpets to cover the smell, this isn’t a long-term solution and is frankly a waste of your precious free time.

So rather than battling with dirty, dull, allergy-triggering and bad-smelling carpets, trust your home to the trusted V.I.P. carpet cleaning technicians. Professional carpet steam cleaning is more affordable than you may think – and you only need to get it done every six to nine months if you have pets (or once a year if you don’t).

Best of all, not only will you enjoy a cleaner and more hygienic home, you’ll also get to spend more time doing the things you love with the people you enjoy doing it with.
