The fictional detective Sherlock Holmes maintained that he could pick up any type of soil and identify which section of London it came from. He said that all soil is unique to its origins in formation and color. That skill often led to the apprehension of a criminal in his stories. Now, London is a large city, but it’s much smaller than the area around Mankato and Waseca that your family may traverse in a day or a week. What would Sherlock Holmes find in your carpet? Our job isn’t to analyze dirt beyond what we need to know to get rid of it. ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca can handle any kind of residential or commercial carpet cleaning with the right skills and equipment to remove the grime and make your home or office clean, fresh, and ready for winter.
In Victorian times, a stroll down the street might have been treacherous as horse carriages were still the main conveyance and the motorized street cleaner had yet to be invented. It was not uncommon to see boot scrapers near doorways and an ample supply of doormats. When you think about it, times haven’t changed all that much. We still have mud, sand, gravel, and dust in every roadway, and even more in rural areas. We also have flyaway organics from fall harvesting and airborne pollen and insects that enter your home as it gets cold. The variable weather also creates a cycling pattern in what people are tracking onto your floors. One week it may be wet leaves, the next muddy smudges or even petroleum-based dirt from driveways or garage floors. That mixture, combined with the higher humidity that leaves your carpets slightly damp through the day, can produce unpleasant odors that don’t require a nose like Holmes’ to notice. And Dr. Watson would be the first to advise that carpets at the change of season can be a breeding ground for mold spores and bacteria.
Now is a great time to let us accomplish your carpet cleaning before you encounter the winds of winter when you have other environmental factors to occupy your time. ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca is your best choice for residential and commercial carpet cleaning and deodorizing. As in Holmes’ days, people still have a mixture of hardwood floors and area rugs. We can take care of those as well. With our professionally trained technicians and materials it’s, well, elementary.
