Here are some of the benefits of carpet cleaning for retirement villages.
Good quality carpet cleaning will thoroughly remove impurities and odours. This alone can make improve the air quality which naturally leads to a healthier environment inside the retirement village. Regular vacuuming the carpets does not completely remove all the dust which can get embedded in the carpet fibres. Professional cleaning carpets can help remove dust which can make a huge difference for people who have allergies.
Vacuuming alone does not remove stubborn stains on the carpet. Over time these can look unsightly. A professional carpet cleaning service can remove stains, such as coffee and food spills or urine stains. This makes the retirement village look like new again with a fresh look.
Dirty carpets will still smell, even if you vacuum them several times during the day. The smell usually comes from material trapped in the fibres of the carpet. Deep cleaning is the only way of removing nasty smell from the carpets. Unfortunately, no vacuum cleaner can deep clean a carpet. If you do not have the necessary equipment to deep clean the carpets, hire a professional carpet cleaning company to deep clean the carpets.
Dust mites are invisible to the human eye, but they exist, often in dirty carpets. Besides causing unwanted odours, they are the biggest cause of asthma and allergies. Therefore, eliminating dust mites from the carpets can help prevent allergies. To remove the dust mites, use a steam cleaner to clean the carpets as the high temperatures kill the mites.
Mould growth is frequently found in retirement villages with high humidity levels. Moisture in the carpets encourages mould growth. If mould grows in the carpet, it leads to health risks to people with respiratory problems. Auckland is humid so mould is a common issue for retirement villages in the region. Hiring a professional to clean the carpets can help prevent mould growth. Professional carpet cleaners have more effective drying elements than a hire-shop cleaner. This more powerful machine will completely remove the moisture in the carpets therefore inhibiting the growth of mould in the carpets.
Dirty carpets can trap different pollutants such as dust and dirt, insect allergens, and even traces of various toxins. Daily vacuuming may not be the answer since it can release toxic airborne gases, which can affect the health of people living in the retirement village. Professional cleaners can help remove trapped pollutants using specialist shampooing agents. An environmentally-friendly carpet cleaner like ourselves, uses non-toxic cleaning agents.
