Most people with carpeted floors know that they must be vacuumed, at least once a week, if not more often. Vacuuming is vital because it removes the layer of dirt and grime that collects on top of your carpet, over the course of that week. Nonetheless, even if you vacuum every day, there is still dirt and grime deep within your carpet that you cannot reach, with your vacuum cleaner. Because of this deep-rooted and troublesome grime, it is highly recommended that you also hire a professional carpet cleaner, once a year. Doing this makes your carpet, as well as your home overall, far more clean and sanitary. Be careful, though, because many carpet cleaners still utilize shampoo, instead of carbonation. In Redondo Beach, Curtice Chem-Dry is a carpet cleaning company that specializes in carbonated extraction.
Carbonated extraction is a fairly new and advanced procedure that makes the old carpet cleaning techniques seem downright silly. While the older means of carpet cleaning necessitated washing the carped with lots of water and soap, carbonated extraction is a much more precise and effective means of removing dirt, mold, and bacteria. After all, when cleaning your carpet, the removal of germs is a top priority, and shampooing does not do a very good job of doing that. This is because it uses a lot of water, and water is the main ingredient that is necessary for mold and bacteria. While it seems counter-intuitive that water could make your carpet dirtier, it is true. Because shampooing leaves your carpet wet for at least one day, mold and germs have an excellent opportunity to develop. Instead of getting your carpet cleaned, it can often have the opposite effect, leaving your carpet less sanitary than it was before. Carbonated extraction, in addition to being the more effective carpet cleaning method in every other way, uses far less water than shampooing does. This means that your carpet is not as wet for as long. In fact, it should be dry enough to walk on the same day the cleaning is performed. This saves you from having to book a hotel room, and it leaves your carpet sanitary.
Aside from carpet cleaning, Curtice Chem-Dry does provide some other cleaning services, for the various other items in your home that require professional cleaning. Specifically, if you have rugs or upholstery that need to be cleaned, they are probably your best choice. Different types of rugs and upholstery need to be handled differently. While some rug cleaning can be done using carbonation, in many cases, other methods are necessary. Though carbonated extraction uses little water, it is still too wet for some surfaces. There are some types of upholstery that are not meant to get wet, at all. In the case of both rugs and upholstery cleaning, they may need to take your item to the shop to be cleaned. In the case of your furniture, the upholstery will be taken off the furniture and reattached, when the cleaning process is done.
