Chances are you vacuum your carpets on a regular basis, but do you actually clean them? If not, you might be surprised what is happening deep in the fibers where you can’t see and even where you can.
First off, have you ever noticed dark lines around the walls of your rooms or maybe under a door or even under your furniture? If so, these are not due to the quality of your carpeting. Instead, they are pollutants and dust that accumulate in your carpets and on the fibers of your carpets.
They tend to show up in areas of your home that have a stronger flow of air or even through little cracks under your carpet. Over time, the dust and pollutants build up. Unfortunately, vacuuming alone won’t take care of the problem.
A second issue that arises when you don’t clean your carpets is wear patterns caused by high traffic. Most often you find these in areas of your home where the carpet then transitions to a hard surface. This is due to the fact that most people often drag their feet instead of picking them up when they walk.
Once the fibers of your carpet are worn they will absorb spills and dirt to a higher degree than carpet that isn’t worn.
Finally, if you have a stain that keeps coming back even after you have cleaned it, chances are it is also in the carpet padding. Cleaning the surface of your carpets will not remove this underlying stain, so it will continue to come back.
