How to ensure efficient carpet restoration

There’s nothing like a clean carpet. It makes your entire house feel good.  Obviously, you want your carpet looking and feeling good for as long as possible – it’s a reflection of you and your home. Over time, carpets accumulate unwanted bacteria, dust and other unhealthy allergens which regular vacuuming cannot completely remove. It is important to keep your carpet clean and well maintained to not only keep it looking new, but also to increase its longevity.

Water damaged carpet is a breeding ground for mildew, rot, and mold. Plaster, drywall, wood, concrete, and metal are subject to water damage and need to be dried & repaired. Moisture in the substructures of your home can lead to further damage that may eventually ruin your home. Airborne mold affects the respiratory system, triggering symptoms such as asthma and allergies. It’s important to take immediate precautions in soaking up as much moisture as possible.

Benefits of Carpet Restoration

  • One major benefit is that it helps extend the life of your carpet. Over time dust, dirt, allergens and other debris collect in the carpet and get embedded within the fibers which can eventually cause the fibers to split and deteriorate. Restoration will improve the longevity of the carpet as dust and other debris is more likely to adhere to a dirty carpet than a clean carpet.
  • Another benefit of professional carpet restoration is that they can contribute to a healthier and safe environment within your home. Some of the allergens and dust that get trapped in the carpet fibers may find their way into the breathing air where they can cause breathing problems, many allergic reactions, and other health problems.

Clean Carpeting Makes a Better Impression

When clients, employees, and other visitors come to your office, the state of the office contributes to the impression that these guests and visitors get of your company.  Keeping your carpet cleaned and maintained with professional carpet cleaning services will improve and recover the look of your carpet, and also the presence of the office as a whole which will help make a better impression on your visitors.

Process of restoration

If your carpet is suffering from water damage then restoration process begins with shutting off the floodwater’s source, which should be followed quickly with water extraction using pumps and wet vacuum machines. The next step is adding deodorizers and disinfectants, which will stop the growth of bacteria and molds, as well as prevent the development of foul odors on your carpet. The final step after restoration is elevating the carpet off the floor of your house and drying it with the help of air movers, fans, and dehumidifiers.

Easy carpet care tips to help maintain your carpet

  • Vacuum regularly.  At least once a week give your carpet a good, slow vacuum. Vacuuming removes dry soils that you don’t even see.  This dry soil is abrasive and sharp. The abrasive pieces of soil begin to tear and cut at the carpet fibers.  You can’t see this happening but after sometimes carpet can begin to breakdown.  This is called wear and it is not reversible with washing or cleaning.  The best way is to vacuum on a regular basis.
  • A tip is to have your carpets professionally cleaned once a year.  Remember that even if your carpet looks clean, it’s still holding onto dust, dander and dry soil. Cleaning your carpet before it looks dull is possibly one of the best things you can do for your home.  You’ll extend the life of your carpet and avoid unnecessary carpet wear.
