Why Carpet Cleaning Is Important

dirty carpet

Carpets are a central feature within your home, expressing your personal style and ensuring that you’re in comfortable surroundings. Looking after your carpet isn’t just a chore to be done; it’s also about looking after your home as a whole and the wellbeing of the people within. 

So though you’re probably vacuuming your carpets regularly, it’s also important to undertake a deeper carpet cleaning at least once every 6 months. Treating stains, protecting against wear and tear and ensuring that contaminants like mould can’t thrive is crucial for the long-term integrity of your carpet. Carpets also often inadvertently end up as storage for dirt, crumbs, pet dander, pollen and more — which in turn can make them into breeding grounds for bacteria and allergens. So by doing a deeper clean, you’re not just keeping your carpet looking great and ensuring a comfortable home, you’re also helping to protect your family from health problems. Rug cleaning is similarly important; given that they’re often plushier and shaggier than the carpet they’re lying on, it’s important to remember that they can be even more powerful attractants for dust, dirt and debris. 

Here at Jim’s Cleaning, we’re longtime experts in effective carpet cleaning — that’s why we’ve put together a number of frequently asked questions, to highlight the importance of having your carpet cleaned regularly. We also offer steam cleaning, which provides an all-over deep clean for your carpets. While more time-consuming than dry cleaning, it’s also one of the most effective ways to ensure that you’re getting your carpets to the highest standard of cleanliness possible. 


What are the benefits of having your carpet cleaned?

 The first — and most obvious — benefit of keeping your carpet clean is that it will look better. Dust, dirt and stains can dull the look of your carpet over time, making a room look ugly and unappealing in the process. Looking after your carpet properly will also help it last for longer, too. A dirty carpet is a less durable carpet — the cumulative effects of regular foot traffic and grime can render your carpet needing to be much more rapidly replaced. Additionally, it’s a great way to ensure that you and your family aren’t being made ill by any bacteria or allergens lying beneath the surface level of the carpet. A periodic, thorough clean will help eliminate these issues and in turn, leave your home a more hygienic place to live.  

Is it worth getting carpets professionally cleaned?

Although you can clean your carpets yourself, there are significant benefits to having a professional carry it out on your behalf. Professionals have substantial prior experience to draw on, ensuring that the job will be done right, the first time. At Jim’s Cleaning, our professionally trained staff also have all of the necessary equipment and supplies to carry out a thorough and deep clean — so there’s no need for you to go to the additional expense and effort of attempting it yourself, only to end up with a job you’re unhappy with.

Importantly, all of our carpet cleaning jobs have a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy with the job we’ve done, we’ll come back and clean it until you are happy, at no extra cost to you.

Here at Jim’s Cleaning, we offer dry cleaning for carpet, which is ideal for people who are short on time or are operating in areas that can’t easily be closed off to the public. Able to be walked on almost immediately afterwards without affecting the look, dry cleaning is an excellent option for many homes and commercial spaces. We also offer steam cleaning, to 

Does carpet cleaning make a difference?

Absolutely! Cleaning your carpet won’t just create a more pleasant environment in your home; it will also help lengthen the lifespan of your carpet and also reduce the risk of contaminants and bacteria making you or your family sick. It’s a great way to improve the look of your home while also benefiting your health in the process. 

When you’re getting your carpets cleaned, it’s also worth considering getting any other similar surfaces in your home cleaned at the same time — for example, upholstery on your lounges, mattresses in your bedroom, as well as rugs and drapes. Leather surfaces are also worth cleaning too; though not the same attractant for dust and debris as carpet or other upholstered surfaces, it still needs periodic care to maintain its look and feel, while also ensuring that it remains hygienic. 

Why is carpeting important?

Carpets offer a number of different benefits to your home. They’re more effective at trapping dust than any other type of flooring, which helps maintain better air quality within the home (and is also demonstrative of why they need to be regularly cleaned). Additionally, carpets are also highly effective at helping insulate your home against cold weather. Installing carpets in your home or including rugs as part of your decor can help you make savings on your energy bills further down the line. 

Why is carpet steam cleaning important?

Steam carpet cleaning is arguably the most effective way to get your carpets back to looking their best selves. Although shampoo and dry cleaning are both excellent options — and are particularly useful in high-traffic areas, which can’t necessarily be fully closed off in the same way as a private home — steam cleaning enables you to effectively clean hard-to-reach spots throughout your house. Steam cleaning your carpets enables you to deal with tough stains, remove allergens and contaminants from beneath and get rid of unwanted odours.
However, steam cleaning is a process where it’s best to call in professionals. It can be a complex process requiring specialised equipment; if you carry it yourself incorrectly, you can end up ruining your carpet. The good news is that here at Jim’s Cleaning, we’re long-time experts in steam cleaning — so we can do it for you and ensure that you get the best results possible.
