How to Keep Your Carpets Cleaning During the Messy Spring Months in Mankato, MN

The woman waited at the door with a bucket of warm water and a rag as her two spaniels approached from their morning round. The spring mud appeared plentiful on each of the eight paws, but she was ready. The dogs sat dutifully as each was washed and dried before they were allowed to pass through the mudroom into the house. If that scenario is rare, wishful thinking, or pure fantasy at your house, then your carpets may well bear the traces of pets and people who have brought the outdoors into your home. Whether your yard is primarily sand, clay, gravel, or rich black loam, you need home carpet cleaning by ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca to handle those carpet stains.

There’s only so much you can do during the messy months to keep soil and grit off your residential floors. Put multiple mats by the doors, set out trays for boots and shoes, and vacuum regularly. Even when guests think they’ve effectively wiped their feet, they often don’t. After several weeks your carpets reflect not only the muddy spring, but also what remains after a long winter’s accumulation that includes splatters and spills from parties or family gatherings. Add to that any pet stains and it’s probably time for a professional carpet cleaning service.

Frequency of cleaning is important when it comes to carpets as winter’s dirt can cause permanent damage to you carpet’s fibers. Over the course of the winter, salt, sand, and small bits of gravel and dirt get tracked in from the yard, driveway or roadways. This debris sinks to the base of the carpeting and becomes deeply embedded. Once there, this filth becomes harder to remove with regular vacuuming. It works like tiny grindstones, scraping and chewing against the fibers with every step taken across the carpet.

As these particles rip and tear at the fibers, traffic across the carpeting helps release clouds of dust and irritants into the indoor environment. And if that doesn’t sound bad enough, you have to consider the nasty mix of bio-debris that lives in your carpeting which includes bacteria, mold spores, dust mites, and even viruses. Top this off with spills, stains, pet accidents and other stuff that can be stuck to the bottom of a shoe…well, it’s just not a pretty picture! The result may be allergies, frequent colds, or aggravated pre-existing illnesses. It’s especially bad on babies and small children who spend their time closer to the floor and anyone with pulmonary or breathing problems. Think back on the illnesses in your business or home. Could they have been made worse by these factors?
