Welcome to Fredericksburg Carpet Cleaning!
We are your local carpet cleaning experts in the city. We are a family owned business, and we undertake cleaning of all types of carpets and rugs, both domestic and commercial.
When it comes to cleaning your carpets, it is important to ensure that you are using the services of a highly trained professional. As with many other things in life, cleaning your carpets is something that you COULD do for yourself, but unless you know exactly what you are doing, you could also make a very expensive mistake.
There are many different carpet cleaning products available to the general public, and using the wrong product could actually cause irreversible damage. It is all too easy to cause shrinkage or damage to the dye. Furthermore, there are also products which are only available to those working in the trade. Carpet cleaning in Fredericksburg might seem a straightforward job, but doing it correctly is a skill that has to be learned like anything else.
Protect Your Carpets With Professional Carpet Cleaning
Carpet is not a cheap product, and with carpet costing upwards of $24.00 per square yard, many homes in Fredericksburg have carpeting that has cost several thousand dollars, so it pays dividends to take care of it properly. As a small family owned business, Fredericksburg Carpet Cleaning takes every care to ensure that our staff are trained to the highest standards in the industry, and we keep up to date with all of the latest developments both in systems and modern carpet cleaning products.
There are very many different kinds of carpet and area rugs, and some, such as Persian carpet, and other oriental rugs, are extremely expensive. They can also be very delicate, in the sense that the dyes used in these finer carpets and rugs are often vegetable dyes which can fade if not treated using the correct procedures and the right cleaning materials.
There are several sound reasons for having your carpets cleaned regularly by professional carpet cleaners in Fredericksburg, not the least of which is your and your family’s or employees health.
Fredericksburg Carpet Cleaning
The majority of people walk on their carpet in the shoes that they have worn in the street or the yard, and while it is not immediately noticeable, this will bring in all sorts of dirt which then falls off and gets trodden into the carpet. Even if you use a doormat to wipe your feet, you will still tread dirt into the carpet. Try shaking your doormat outside the home or office, and you will see just how much dirt, soil, and grit is brought indoors. Pet hairs are another problem.
However, from the health point of view it is not just the dirt and soil of itself that causes problems, but the allergens that they carry with them. Dust mites also live in the carpet, and while they are not a problem in themselves, they also carry several different types of allergens. Obviously, when you walk on the carpet these allergens can get into the atmosphere, and then cause harm. This is especially true if anyone living in the house or working in the office suffers from asthma or has other breathing difficulties.
Regular carpet cleaning will ensure that this problem is kept to a minimum. In fact, most health care professionals will recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned every 12 – 18 months for this reason. This is very often long before they begin to look dirty or stained. Furthermore, many carpet manufacturers insist that regular professional cleaning is undertaken as part of the conditions of their warranty. (In this connection, you should always keep the receipts for your cleaning). High traffic areas, such as stairs and hallways, or carpets in an office or other business environment, should be cleaned more frequently.
Best Carpet Cleaners In Fredericksburg
Of course, regular professional carpet cleaning in Fredericksburg will also prolong the life of your carpet. Those same pieces of grit and soil that get trodden into it have many sharp edges. The average grain of sand, for instance, has 25 sharp cutting edges that will work to degrade the fiber of the carpet. We use hot water extraction/steam cleaning in order to remove soil and dirt from the carpet fibers completely.
Regular vacuuming is also important in order to ensure that soiling is kept to a minimum. Some people are unsure how often to vacuum, but a good rule of thumb is to count the number of people in your home. If there are four of you, for instance, you should vacuum four times a week. Carpet that has considerable traffic, such as in a business environment, should be vacuumed daily.
If you have children or active teens in the home, this can add to the problem of soil in a carpet. Vigorous activities such as running, jumping, dancing, playing with hula hoops, and more, can force dirt and soil deep into the pile of the carpet which older or less powerful vacuum cleaners may not be able to remove.
Stains need expert attention. Many different kinds of materials can stain a carpet, and they will need treating with different products in order to remove and eradicate them completely. As professional cleaners, our staff are trained in the use of the correct product for each different kind of stain.
There is no doubt that some people believe that having their carpets cleaned in Fredericksburg should be left as long as possible after having them laid, because having them cleaned would cause them to soil more quickly. There are absolutely no grounds for this misconception. All carpets should be cleaned according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and certainly no less frequently than every 18 months.
