15. A professional carpet cleaner is needed at least every few months
A very small amount of people like cleaning. The world is mostly filled with people who clean because they must and not because they want to. Some are even fortunate enough, that they are able to hire people to clean their houses for them. If you are not part of this small group, then you probably have a trusty vacuum cleaner at home.
This old Hoover is trundled out a few times a week and is set to work on your carpets. The salesman who convinced you to buy the thing probably promised you superior suction without the added price tag. They waxed lyrical about how this special little machine can clean literally anything. Got a kid with allergies? Have no fear, dust will be a thing of the past with this machine.
Maybe all of this wasn’t simply a sales pitch. And, maybe you do actually have a vacuum cleaner which has kept your carpets looking as good as new. Unfortunately, this is not actually enough. Commercial vacuum cleaners are simply not able to remove all the dust, germs and debris which are stomped throughout your house on a daily basis.
These machines can only remove the top layer of dirt. But carpets are thick, that is actually their selling point. Beneath the top visible layer, lies a veritable petri dish. Herein lies an area that is completely undisturbed, which is the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive. To regularly disturb this ecosystem a deep clean is needed. This can only be done by professional carpet cleaners and should be done every few months.
