CRI’s Seal of Approval Program certifies carpet cleaning equipment, products and service providers to make sure you are able to keep your carpet in tip-top shape.
Superior Steam Cleaners, an SOA certified service provider in Ellicott City, MD, recently created their own consumer guide filled with advice for consumers about the best practices for carpet care.
One section of interest was 4 Important Reasons to Clean Your Carpet Regularly, which featured some good reasons for having your carpet periodically cleaned by a professional.
Here is their list with some added advice from CRI:
CRI: The appearance of your carpet might be the most obvious reason to have your carpet cleaned, however that doesn't make it any less important. Professional cleaning removes those spots and stains that you may not be able to remove otherwise.
2. Indoor Air Quality
CRI: Indoor air quality is a major issue today for the many people who suffer from asthma and allergies, but carpet acts as a filter and keeps dirt from recirculating. Regular vacuuming and professional cleaning are a way of cleaning that filter of dust, allergens and other particulates.
CRI: The floor covering you choose is an important investment in your home and professional cleaning helps to protect that investment. Along with regular vacuuming, Professional cleaning keeps carpet from “uglying out,” or having to be replaced before fulfilling its useful life.
CRI: This is a reason many people might not consider, but many carpet manufacturers’ warranties recommend having your carpet cleaned by a professional. Look over your warranty for the details on how often the carpet should be professionally cleaned.
These are just a few of the many reasons it is necessary to have carpet professionally cleaned and CRI appreciates Superior Steam Cleaners for advising consumers on the importance of professional deep cleaning.
