Most of us know that regular vacuuming is all we need to keep a carpet clean. Sure there’s the occasional stain to take care of but there are plenty of products that can deal with that, or failing that just move a chair on top of it. But, like most things all of us know, it’s really not accurate, dirt and dust gets ground in so deeply that vacuum cleaning, or even shampooing, will not shift it, and some of the most stubborn stains seem resistant to everything but fire.
You could ask; how clean does a carpet really need to be? As long as it looks clean, who cares? Well, if you have your carpet properly cleaned then it can massively extend its life and save you a great deal of time, money and hassle.
Of course, getting a carpet professionally cleaned isn’t exactly free, and it does take time but not nearly as much as you might think. Most of us still think of professional cleaning for carpets as being a job that takes the better part of a day and even then your carpet still squelches in places. Add the choking smell of detergent in the air and it’s not something any of us want in the home. But times have changed, A1 Professional Cleaning (specialists in carpet cleaning in Ilkley) use a process called Dry Fusion, it cleans and stain guards the carpet but uses non-irritant cleaning products and, most impressively, will be dry only thirty minutes after washing.
There’s certainly a case to be made for getting your house’s carpets cleaned by professionals every now and then to extend their life but most of these processes are designed with commercial properties in mind. Here again, in the area of carpet cleaning Ilkley based A1 Professional Cleaning are experts in their field. They have years of experience but have stayed up to the minute with the latest equipment and operate in a radius of about twenty five miles.
Professional Carpet Cleaning Ilkley
For buildings with banks of computers the Dry Fusion process A1 Professional Cleaning offers is particularly useful. The carpets in such an environment pick up a great deal of static electricity which of course attracts dust. As well as it’s stain guard, Dry Fusion applies an anti-static finish to carpets.
There are other reasons that for carpet cleaning Ilkley companies choose A1 Professional Cleaning. They treat each job as individual, using whatever process suits the property best. As well as Dry Fusion they use Cristal Fusion on upholstery and/or Hot Water Extraction.
Although Hot Water Extraction is a longer process which the company has been using since 1987, the way in which it is used is decidedly modern. The equipment has improved substantially in the last twenty five years and it is now used with a more environmentally friendly bias. All the cleaning products used are biodegradable and many are detergent and phosphate free.
The most important thing to remember about carpet cleaning is that it is not just a matter of how a carpet looks or of its ‘lifespan’, hygiene is equally important and your carpet’s cleanliness, at home or at work, can affect your health. Carpeting traps all sorts of tiny particles, organic and inorganic, many (most notably dust) can cause allergic reactions in some people, others can actually be hazardous to your health. In a domestic setting it’s worth keeping these things in mind (and considering them in case of unexplained allergic reactions), in a commercial setting it is absolutely the responsibility of a company to ensure that it’s carpets are cleaned to a high professional standard, if only for the well-being of its employees.
