Sofa’s and carpets harbour a multitude of bacteria and germs. In fact, it is thought that a carpet can hold four times its weight in dirt so not surprisingly it becomes a breeding ground for all sorts of unpleasantries! If you are the owner of a pet such as a cat or dog, the build up of fur, slobber and dirt from their paws will eventually imbed itself into your carpet/upholstery. Even the smallest droplets of spilt food or drink can cause the formation or germs.
Today in the UK, 1 in 4 people are thought to be suffering from hay fever. You may not see the pollen particles but they are in the air and find their way into your home, settling into the fibres of your carpet or sofa sparking off the common effects such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and throat.
Regular hoovering will keep dirt, dust and allergens at bay but for a really good deep clean, a carpet extraction cleaner is recommended. A spray cleaning solution is sprayed into the carpet/upholstery and then extracted using a powerful vacuum. Most carpet extraction cleaners come with an upholstery tool which is ideal for sofa’s rugs and car interiors. Using the spray/extraction method leaves very minimal moisture residue meaning carpets and upholstery are left smelling fresh and almost dry reducing the risk of re soiling and enabling the cleaned areas to be used again not long after the clean.
There are a wide range of carpet extraction cleaners to choose from, whether it be a larger machine for more commercial areas with more ground to cover or smaller lightweight machines for domestic and light commercial use.
