How to Sanitize Carpet

We don’t mean to alarm you, but your carpet is probably, well, gross. If your carpet is cared for like that of the average American’s, it’s home to dander, dust mites, bacteria, pollen and other allergens. Even if you vacuum your carpeting regularly, it’s likely still harboring things you don’t want your family, tenants or employees touching or breathing in.

The good news is that without the filtering properties that your carpets provide, these pollutants would likely be airborne, potentially triggering allergic reactions. The bad news? You still need to remove them from your carpeting.

DIY Carpet Cleaning May Not Be Enough

Household vacuums and so-called steam cleaners may make your carpets look and smell cleaner, but the best way to thoroughly clean our carpets is to have them professionally cleaned. Steam cleaners and at-home carpet cleaners are not powerful enough to remove stains, dander, dust mites and debris that sit deep within the carpet or carpet padding. Professional carpet cleaning not only removes this collective debris, it helps sanitize one of the most prevalent surfaces in your home.

Read on to learn about deep carpet cleaning services from the professionals at Rainbow Restoration, and how to best sanitize your carpet.

Why At-Home Carpet Cleaning Machines Can Make It Worse

Many carpet steam cleaning machines you can purchase or rent at the store claim to give you professional-quality results. Frankly, this is impossible. At home cleaners are not powerful enough to adequately agitate carpet fibers or extract enough water. Not only will at-home carpet cleaners leave dirt behind, they also leave a layer of moisture that the suction component is just not powerful enough to remove.  

This leftover moisture can greatly extend drying times.  Moisture that is not properly extracted can leave carpeting wet for days and in some cases, mold and mildew may begin to grow. In contrast, Rainbow Restoration’s professional carpet cleaning is fast and efficient. Most carpets will take only 2 to 6 hours to dry.

Store-bought vacuums and cleaning equipment tend to leave behind cleaning residues which will attract more soil quicker than truly clean carpeting. Rainbow’s state-of-the-art commercial cleaning equipment can agitate all the layers of the carpeting to remove dirt your vacuum has been missing.
