How do you go about keeping a carpet clean in your home? You vacuum. And that’s pretty much it unless you spill something, or children charge through in muddy boots etc, in which case you reach for a stain remover (there’s no shortage of them on the market). That’s probably enough to keep your carpet looking reasonably clean for a few years, but the important word there is ?looking’. Ground in dust and dirt doesn’t come out with vacuuming alone, even shampooing won’t get the worst of it, and we’ve all had stains that have defied every stain remover out there. Every carpet reaches a point where all the usual things just don’t do the trick anymore and you end up buying as new carpet.
And you might well say, ?So what? No one expects a carpet to last forever. As long as it looks clean, who cares?’. A professional clean could add years to the life of your carpet, and save you a fair bit of money.
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 Otley) 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 Otley based A1 Professional Cleaning are experts in their field.

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.
Another reason that for carpet cleaning Otley businesses choose A1 Professional Cleaning is that they recognise that no two jobs are alike and offer different cleaning processes. Dry Fusion’s sister process Cristal Fusion is used on upholstery and is also available from A1 Professional Cleaning, as is another process called Hot Water Extraction.
Unlike Dry Fusion, Hot Water Extraction has been around for a while but the equipment has changed and A1 Professional Cleaning uses the process with a modern and ?green’ mandate, using biodegradable products, many of which are free of detergent and phosphates.
A clean carpet obviously looks professional but that is only half the story. Carpets can trap organic and chemical particles which may cause an allergic reaction or be actually dangerous. Good carpet cleaning is a matter of hygiene and it is a company’s responsibility to make sure that the work environment is safe and healthy for employees. Any company failing to employ a cleaning service is stinting in its obligations. In the home it’s a different matter of course, it depends on where you live, who you live with etc, but the importance of carpet hygiene is still worth considering.
