Hello and welcome to my cleaning blog. Cleaning can bring you a lot of joy. Without it, our homes and businesses would literally be covered in old food, dust, and garbage. My name is Penny, and in this blog, I'm going to cover cleaning techniques and tips for staying organized. Whether you are trying to wash a stain out of a shirt or keep on top of the vacuuming, I hope these posts help. I also plan to write about hiring professional cleaners for your home, office, or even your industrial facility. My hope is that this blog brings you as much joy as a clean space.

Why Vacuuming Isn't Enough To Keep Your Carpet Clean

Catherine Edwards

Most people vacuum their carpets once or twice a week, and if they have kids or pets, the frequency is increased to daily. Although vacuuming your carpet will reduce the accumulation of dirt and allergens, it can't replace carpet cleaning services. 

Vacuuming Doesn't Kill Microscopic Insects 

Carpets often harbor insects such as mites, bed bugs, and fleas. These insects might become a common feature, especially if you have pets that play outside and interact with other pets. You can vacuum your carpet every day, but it will prove ineffective against these microscopic insects. 

Luckily, these pests can be eradicated by cleaning your carpets and pets. For the former, you can seek professional carpet cleaning services that eradicate the pests and leave your carpet sparkling again. 

Vacuuming Removes Superficial Dirt 

Vacuum cleaners tend to remove only the surface-level dirt. For example, if you pour a beverage on your carpet, using a vacuum cleaner will suck some of the beverage out. However, it can't suck out all the beverage that has seeped through to the inner fibers. 

For this, you need deep cleaning services offered by carpet cleaning professionals. It is a service that cleans everything from dirt to allergens, mold, and insects. 

Vacuuming Doesn't Get Rid of Stains and Odors

Similarly, vacuuming will not remove stains and odors. You can't suck out an odor from your carpet regardless of the suction power of the vacuum cleaner. To remove stubborn stains and odors, you need deep carpet cleaning. 

Consider hiring a carpet cleaning service to remove these stubborn odors. They will typically use specialized cleaning solutions that will remove stains and odors without damaging your carpet. 

Carpet Cleaning Helps You Adhere to Warranty Conditions 

Carpet manufacturers have very stringent cleaning and maintenance requirements. You can't mishandle your carpet and expect to receive a refund or a replacement before the warranty period lapses. 

This is why carpet manufacturers are dismissive of vacuuming as a carpet cleaning alternative. If you rely solely on vacuuming to maintain your carpet, expect most manufacturers to void your warranty. 

This doesn't mean you should neglect daily or weekly vacuuming. On the contrary, you should combine both options to ensure that you live and work in a clean environment. For example, you can vacuum your carpet daily or weekly and have it cleaned after a few months. If you own pets or have kids, consider vacuuming your carpet every day.
