Why would you want to clean your carpets just before school starts? The real questions is: why wouldn’t you? You’ve just experienced one of the most active twelve week periods of the year. Both people and pets spend much of their time outdoors in the dust, dirt and mud, and then bring a portion of that grime into your home. And you’ll be having people over for activities during the school year. Your home should look its best. A professional residential carpet cleaning service is what you need and that means ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca.
Summer takes its toll on carpets. You’ve been looking at the rooms in question and, short of a very obvious spill or stain, you may think things aren’t that bad. Consider your family and pets. No matter where they’ve been, they end up back in the house every night and what they bring in isn’t always obvious. A percentage of the dirt enters on their body, not just their feet. It’s the dirt you can’t immediately see, but it builds up, settling as grit and dust at the base of the carpet fibers. Then, as people walk across the carpet, they grind the dirt against the threads, damaging your investment.
All that enters the house is not simply soil. Minnesota summers are known for their insects, and the bugs that don’t enter on their own may hitch rides on pets or on clothing if people have been in the woods or on the farm. That organic matter also falls into the carpet unnoticed and deteriorates. Pollen enters a home as well and provides food for insects that manage to survive. Add to that any residual pet or food stains that you’ve done your best to clean up. There’s always something left behind.
You don’t want that combination to stay in your carpet through the fall and winter months. Make sure your home is completely clean and ready for fall activities and hospitality. Call ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca for the most thorough home carpet cleaning. Then look at your carpet after the job is done. You’ll see the difference.
