Mid-summer is a great time of year to assess the state of your carpets. In Mankato, that can mean noticing the residue of family picnics, softball games, beach or lake outings, and parties, or simply the collection of meals that have left evidence beyond the table. If you have any type of pet that lives indoors, you’ve probably experienced some accidents as well. Now is the time to schedule a professional and thorough carpet cleaning for your Mankato home with ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca.
Carpet cleaning not only makes your room fresh again, but it also preserves the life of your carpet. Some people think a professional carpet cleaning service isn’t for them. They vacuum daily, there are careful about spills, and always remove their shoes. Even so, it’s sometimes helpful to take the sniff test: lay face down on the carpet in three different locations with your nose just touching the fiber. Breathe in deeply. You may be surprised at what you smell or at how different the smell of each spot can be.
Some people are hesitant to get that close to their carpet. That’s a strong clue that something isn’t as clean as it should be. Carpeting is made of fibers that absorb odors as well as liquid spills and stains. Much of the air in your living room reflects what’s in your carpet. If something smells off in your house, odds are your carpet smells the same way.
On the other hand, it may be obvious that you need carpet cleaning services, but you just haven’t contacted anyone yet. If you’re reading this, you’ve come to the right place. We’re experts at getting dirt out of any carpet, ranging from those dark discolorations known as traffic patterns to the bright and difficult stains caused by wine or food spills. We also mentioned pet stains earlier: we will remove them completely, both the stain and the odor, to make your carpet smell clean and fresh once again.
Now is a great time to schedule an appointment with ServiceMaster in Mankato to get your carpet cleaning out of the way and prepare your home for the next round of guests.
How often should you clean your carpets? There is no simple answer, just as no two households are the same. A recent article on CNN says you need to have a thorough carpet cleaning performed at least once a year. That takes into account normal wear and traffic. If you have children or more than two adults in the family, and especially if you have pets, regular cleanings of your carpets in your St. Peter home are probably warranted. Vacuuming frequently is certainly a good practice, but it doesn’t reach all the dirt, dust, insect droppings, pollen, or the soaked–in food spills. And no vacuum removes chemicals, pet urine, or any kind of odor. If you can’t recall the last time you had your carpets professionally cleaned, now is a great time. In St. Peter, your best choice is ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca.
You may have a particular spot in mind that, despite your best efforts, you haven’t been able to really clean. Perhaps there is a heavy traffic area that is noticeably darker than the rest of the floor. Have you moved a large piece of furniture and discovered the carpet beneath has a rather high contrast in brightness compared to the rest of the carpet? Maybe you finally found a pet stain in an out-of-the-way area that is now well saturated and much more noticeable due to the warmer weather. Do you live in a neighborhood that is particularly windy or dusty? Perhaps you were waiting until after the last summer time visitors have left or the final patio party before you opt for a professional cleaning service to do your carpet cleaning.
Professional carpet cleaning restores the luster of the fiber, resiliency to the pile, and makes your carpet easier to maintain. You’ll see the difference right away, and you’ll also note how our trained technicians manage to reach all the areas that you missed the last time you tried to clean them on your own.
We can arrange an estimate and schedule a time that works best for you. You want to spend more time in your air conditioned home now that the warm weather is here. Don’t let dingy carpets drive you outside. ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca will meet your residential carpet cleaning needs in St. Peter, MN and surrounding communities.
Time and energy are two critical elements that seem harder and harder to come by in today’s busy society. People in Mankato are not immune to these pressures. Everyone in your house may be working full time outside the home. Or, perhaps during the workweek, your house is a “bedroom district” – someplace you get to at the end of the day merely to sleep and then go again. Maybe you travel extensively and when you’re home you want to relax and not spend your precious free time cleaning. Residential cleaning is a popular and high-value service we offer at ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca. Once you try it, you’ll see why the extra hours it adds to your personal life make it so worthwhile.
When you finally get home, you want to relax – whatever that means to you and your family. In general, people can’t relax in a cluttered, messy, or dirty environment. Research conducted at Princeton University Neuroscience Institute and published in 2011 showed that people can’t focus on things they want to do and experience increased stress in a cluttered environment. Translate that into your home: If you can observe tasks that need to be performed or can easily see items out of place as you sit on your living room couch, you can’t relax. Conclusion: Your environment is stealing some of your “down time” whether you realize it or not.
