My Carpets Stinks! How Can I Make My New Home Pleasant Smelling Again?

Carpets are often the most overlooked and under maintained element in the home. Not much thought is paid to carpets because for one, they reside under our feet, and the second reason is because many people believe that simply vacuuming is enough to keep a carpet clean. Old style steam cleaning carpet methods, while they do remove soil and dirt, more dangerous problems with dirty carpets are usually not addressed through steam cleaning alone.

One of the biggest culprits of childhood respiratory ailments is the prevalence of mold, mildew, and dust mites, which reside deep within the carpet and padding. Odors and foul smells, even in those homes without pets, are the result of mold and bacterial activity in the carpet. Traditional steam carpet cleaning is usually powerless to thoroughly remove these contaminants. The reason for this, is because of the large amount of water that is necessary for steam carpet cleaning.

Mold and mildew thrive in damp environments, and while the pressure, heat, and harsh cleaning agents of steam systems may remove the odors for a few days, they have only succeeded in causing the mold to lie dormant until such time as the carpet starts to dry. Because of the humidity and moisture in the air, particularly in the South, black mold is a particularly difficult problem to effectively remedy.

Alternative dry method carpet cleaning systems are available, and are far more effective at combating these deep pile based toxins. Dry organic carpet cleaning employs a method of natural materials, safe cleaning agents, thorough agitation, and powerful vacuum extraction. Only these methods combined, can remove the very small contaminants that lie deep within the carpet pile, and padding.

The safe organic compounds used in dry extraction carpet cleaning are the most effective at drying out, loosening up, and removing mold particles and bacteria. This method leaves no moisture behind in which mold and mildew can thrive. The best dry organic carpet cleaning materials will have the “Green Seal" of approval, and be 100% safe for children, animals and the environment. When searching for a fast, and effective carpet cleaning service, be sure they use a 100% safe and dry organic system. Bring new life and vitality to those carpets, your family will thank you for it!
