Carpeting is a ubiquitous floor covering in Australian homes. The high versatility that it provides makes it a favourite for both decorating as well as enhancing the comfort in different rooms of the residence. Moreover, since carpets can be easily cleaned by vacuuming, some homeowners never contemplate professional carpet cleaning. The reality though is that routine vacuuming only eliminates surface dirt. The longer you have owned your carpet, the higher the likelihood that dirt and contaminants have made their way deep inside your carpet and have become embedded on the fibres. If you are not sure about whether investing in professional carpet cleaning would be worth the cost, here are some of the reasons why you should consider it:
Your carpet has started to smell
One thing to note about odours in the household is that you will eventually become accustomed to them after a while. As a result, some homeowners may not even be aware that their carpet is reeking. A simple test would be to get on all fours and take a good whiff of your carpet. You will be surprised at the stench that emanates from it, particularly if you have never had it professionally cleaned. Homeowners with children or pets should be especially mindful of routine carpet cleaning, as your carpet would be at a higher risk of exposure to spills, body fluids and dirt.
Your carpet has experienced water damage
Another reason to consider professional carpet cleaning is if the carpeting in your home has recently been exposed to flood damage. A mistake some individuals make is assuming all they need to do is dry out their carpet and it will be okay. The truth is that, depending on the extent of the water damage, there is a good chance that your carpet would be at risk of mould and mildew. Professional carpet cleaning services will not only ensure the thorough drying of the carpet, but they will also carry out mould abatement in the off chance that the spores had already started breeding in your carpet.
Your carpet has lost its lustre
Everything you own is bound to succumb to the effects of ageing eventually. Nonetheless, this does not mean that your carpet has to be an eyesore. Over time, carpeting will not only lose its original vibrancy, but it will also lose its form. Professional carpet cleaning can restore the lustre of the carpet through thorough cleaning that eliminates dirt that has become deeply embedded in the fibres, making the carpet look older than it is. Moreover, professional carpet cleaning services may also offer re-stretching services that would restore the shape of your carpet.Share

When I decided to become a freelance designer, I decided I would work from home. I was sick and tired of being in an office all day and to be honest, some of my workmates were pretty annoying. However, I did not consider that I might have to make some changes to my home in order to make it suitable. On the first day of my new life working from home, I realised I would need much more natural light, so I had new windows installed. I then realised that I would need a larger work table to work on my cut out designs. In the end, I made hundreds of changes and I learnt an awful lot about home improvement.
