To avoid the spread of nasty bacteria and any harmful micro-organisms anywhere in the property, especially if you have pets – and children, the carpets need a really thorough clean every couple of years. Professional carpet cleaning services save an inordinate amount of time and effort. You will end up with a wonderfully soft, fresh smelling and welcoming carpet or rug and it will feel just like new. The best way to retain this newness is to vacuum regularly and to scrape off any mess immediately. Sy there’s marmalade or jam dropped, or an animal has an accident – get rid of the solids entirely with a scraper and kitchen roll, then sponge the area with proprietary carpet cleaning solution to stop any staining – or as much as can be stopped. Calling in the carpet cleaning agency as soon as you can will spare permanent damage.
