Carpets and rugs not only add an aesthetic appeal to your home but also add comfort to the house.
This, however, comes at a cost. Carpets and rugs are stains, dust, and even mite magnets if not taken care of properly. Although vacuuming may help take care of dirt and grime, experts recommend having the carpets and rugs cleaned by a professional at least twice in a year. Professional carpet cleaners are not only well trained to handle stains and dirt, but also invest in industrial grade cleaning equipment that facilitates an efficient cleanup job.
Your HVAC system too, and especially the air ducts need to be kept clean at all times. Air ducts collect dust, allergens, and other materials that affect indoor air quality. Dust blown through the ducts also contributes significantly to a dirty rug and other equipment and furniture in the house. Although you could try dusting/cleaning the ducts yourself, chances are you won’t be able to get to hard to reach areas �” you also risk damaging the ductwork as well. Hiring a professional to clean the ducts is the only best bet you might have. For the best results (and savings), consider hiring a professional company that offers both rug and air duct cleaning services.
Benefits of Hiring a Professional for Rug and Air Duct Cleaning
1. Saves Time and Money
Carpet cleaning is one of the toughest and most tiring chores in the house. It becomes even harder when there are oil and wine stains to work on. It can take you more than 30 minutes to get rid of a carpet stain entirely, or even a day to have the carpets clean and dry. The same applies to air duct cleaning. Hiring a professional carpet cleaning company, however, save you the time and resources you would have spent on these carpets and air ducts. This enables you to use the precious time to work on more demanding tasks.
2. Improved Indoor Air Quality
A dusty air duct has a significant impact on indoor air quality. The same applies to a dirty and damp carpet. Having these worked on professionally, however, helps get rid of any allergens, bad odor, and tiny dust particles from the air. Some of the best carpet cleaners use environmentally friendly cleaning detergents and perfumes that leave your house smelling fresh. In addition to this, these experts have the right equipment for the job. This equipment is strong enough to blow out all the dust, pollen, and other foreign material from the ductwork without causing any damage. They also use industrial grade cleaning methods and hot water extraction to ensure the carpets are clean and free of moisture.
3. Improved HVAC Efficiency
A dusty and clogged ductwork puts a lot of strain to your HVAC system. This also means your home will not be cooled or even kept warm as it should. The HVAC systems also use up more energy to drive warm or fresh air through the ductwork resulting in higher heating and cooling energy bills. Nonetheless, having the equipment serviced regularly and the ducts cleaned to remove any blockage as well as pollen, dust, and other foreign materials helps improve its efficiency. This means you get to enjoy cleaner air and lower energy bills as well.
4. Pest, Odor, and Dust Removal
A dirty rug is the perfect breeding ground for vermin and other pests. Some of these bugs will start encroaching or even using the ductwork as hiding spots. A damp rug will not only produce foul smell but also begin to rot if it is not cleaned and left to dry properly. A professional cleaning company can, however, help take care of all these problems within minutes. Thanks to their expertise and heavy-duty equipment, you get to have the carpets, rugs, and ductwork cleaned thoroughly leaving your home free of pests, dust, and foul odor. The hot water extraction cleaning method used on carpets not only cleans out dirt and stains but also kills any pests hiding in the fibers.
These are just but a few of the many reasons, and benefits of hiring a professional carpet cleaning company. Keeping your carpets clean all the time may be a tough task. Having the rugs cleaned handled by a professional, the air ducts included, can, however, save you the frustration of dirty carpets, poor indoor air quality, and other health risks involved. All you need to do is identify the most qualified company for the job, look into certifications, licensing, and insurance before awarding the job.
