Most people know that you need to vacuum carpets at least 1 time per week. If you have a high traffic area or areas that pets use, most people know that you need to vacuum that carpet at least once a day or at least once every two days.
And it’s a good thing! When you see those fresh vacuum lines on the carpet, you feel good don’t you? We sure do!
But the reality is that you need to do much more than just vacuum. Vacuuming isn’t enough. If all you do is vacuum then it’s almost the same as taking a shower but not using soap or not washing your hair. You would never do that to your body would you? So why do you do it to your carpet?
And professional carpet cleaning is not even that expensive. With so many companies out there competing for your business you can get your carpets do for as little as £50 if you just have on small room to deal with. A whole house comes in at about £150. This is an example of what carpet cleaning Swindon charges. But the cost of carpet cleaning really does depend on what you need cleaned and how big the area is.
If you Only Vacuum you Don’t Remove Stains or Spots
It’s just the reality of life. You might be walking with some coffee and a little bit spills over the rim of the cup and hits the carpet. Or you might have friends over and one of them spills a bear on the ground. If you just run a vacuum over the affected area as soon as the carpet is stained then sure you’re going to get out a little bit of what caused the stain out but unless you have a professional carpet cleaning company come in and get the stain out properly it’s always going to be there.
You Don’t Remove Odors from Just Vacuuming
Lingering odors will build up from all those little spots and stains that get on your carpet if you never have them professionally cleaned. It doesn’t matter what the sources is. If it’s from a person or if it’s from a pet. The way the stain go there is irrelevant and the reality simply is that the odor will linger until you clean your carpet professionally.
You Never Get the Same Look and Feel as Professional Carpet Cleaning
If you just vacuum your carpets yourself sure you will have them looking somewhat clean but they will never going to be as clean as a professional company who comes in and does deep steam cleaning or some kind of dry cleaning on your carpets.
This is not to say you shouldn’t vacuum yourself. You should vacuum at least once a week as we mentioned before but you also want to get a professional company to come in one or two times a year to keep your carpet properly fresh.
