Who has carpets?
Carpets are out right? nobody uses carpet any more, it’s all laminate and wood flooring, carpets are a thing of the past, they’re too much hassle to maintain and so everyone has got rid of them. Well, although you could be forgiven for thinking that carpets have gone the way of the dodo they are actually still extremely common, and although any real estate agent will tell you that people on the whole prefer laminate and wood flooring, (With some estimates saying that hardwood flooring throughout can boost the value of a property by as much as 6%) carpet particularly in the UK remains extremely common.
Who needs a professional carpet cleaner?
So OK, carpets are still pretty common but they’re not as hard to upkeep as people make out surely? I mean most people can go for years and years without considering a carpet cleaning service unless some specifically terrible spill happens and it can surely be handled by the owner without the need to pay for a professional service. Wrong, the average person lacks the ability to really be able to return their carpets and upholstery to their original condition because it simply isn’t that easy to do without the right equipment. If you have dark coloured carpets and you manage to mop up a spill to the point where it is no longer visible, the spill is at best only that: not visible. The substance is still there in the carpet and over time will combine with other improperly treated stains to slowly ruin the look and even feel of the carpet. Furthermore if you have a light coloured carpet and don’t have ninja-like reflexes capable of catching anything you ever drop, chances are you are going to need a carpet cleaner a few times in the life span of your carpet.
Does a clean carpet really make that much of a difference?
Absolutely, you can check this out for yourself by looking it up on YouTube. Most people don’t realise how much the colour of their carpet has changed over time as it has gotten dirty so steadily but it can completely transform the look of a room and give a new lease of life on rooms that were once dull and decayed in appearance. The first thing that people see when they enter a home is the flooring, it can have a massive impact on someone’s earliest impressions of a home that will colour all further impressions. So you may have been forgiven for thinking that carpet cleaning companies would be fading away into irrelevancy but as it turns out this is certainly not the case, we need them now as much as ever.
