Low Moisture Carpet Cleaning in OKC: Pure, Healthy and Convenient
Having gorgeously designed carpets alongside other embellishments in your OKC home contributes to the home’s overall visual appeal. Carpets can make any plain room look elegant in an instant, and can reduce sounds coming from people’s footsteps and home appliances. During winter, carpets become a source of insulation for you and your family, too.
Carpets, however, could also be a source of allergens if they’re not cleaned and maintained properly. Interior designer Robin Wilson, who focuses on allergy-free housekeeping, said, in a Huffington Post article, “Indoor air quality can be eight to ten times worse than outdoor air quality if you don’t clean your flooring, clean your drapes and let air inside regularly.” A regular and thorough OKC carpet cleaning, therefore, is crucial to your and your family’s health.
Vacuuming is not enough
The simplest cleaning technique carpet owners know is vacuuming, either weekly or monthly. Vacuuming alone, though, is not enough because it would only remove shallow dirt and debris and wouldn’t eliminate deep-seated dirt and stains that may breed bacteria.
What’s a better way of maintaining carpets?
Several carpet manufacturers require you to have your carpet steam cleaned professionally every 12 to 18 months, basically to keep your warranty intact. Beyond the warranty, professional carpet cleaning in Oklahoma City is advised, preferably every six months, or every 4-6 months for homes with pets.
Will any professional carpet cleaning work?
Most professional carpet cleaning techniques solve the problem of dirt, debris and stain since cleaning companies have the equipment not accessible to homeowners. By efficiently removing dirt, professional cleaners deodorize the carpet and help reduce the risks of bacteria and mite development, as well as allergies and other health problems.
During the cleaning process, however, some homeowners have to put up with the inconvenience of having their carpets soaked or hosed down, or of keeping their doors open to allow the carpets to dry.
What is low moisture carpet cleaning?
A carpet cleaning professional such as Anew Carpet Cleaning employs a low moisture technique, which uses less or very little water to clean the carpet. The carpet is prepared beforehand to remove surface dirt and debris. Then, through a method called encapsulation, a diluted solution is applied to the carpet fibers to loosen stain-causing dirt. A non-abrasive material and oscillating machine are used to siphon the dirt from the carpet. This ensures there’s no stain recurrence.
Aside from being convenient and almost water-free, this method dries carpets quickly and utilizes environment-friendly products. Thus, you benefit from a clean carpet AND you’re protected from the harmful effects of chemicals.
