Most people who have carpet generally do not think about it until something is poured, dumped or dropped on it. If you live alone without any kids or pets, you probably never think about your carpet. That said, you still might want to take a moment to think about carpet cleaning services. When was the last time, if ever, that your carpeting was cleaned? Here is how to tell if your carpet needs a major cleaning.
You Are Not Sure What Color the Carpet Is Supposed to Be
When you move into a house and/or inherit a home with carpeting, you generally think that the carpet is one color. You assume that your beige carpet is beige, and not something else. If the carpet were professionally cleaned and you discovered that the carpet was actually, champagne-colored, you would be shocked, right? That is the typical response of most customers. If you are not sure of the color(s) of your carpeting, it may be time to have it cleaned so that you can see its true color(s).
Your Carpet Smells
People generally do not get all the way down to the floor and lay on the carpet unless they have dogs and/or kids who are on the floor. Seeing as you may not have either in your home, you have probably never smelled your carpet. Go ahead--go do it now. Does it have an unpleasant funk? Are there areas that smell like moldy earth? What about areas that stink like urine or feces? You do not know what happened in your house before you bought the place, so there is no telling what is in your carpet. If it really smells, that may be the faint stink you experience every time you walk in the door. The carpet needs to be deep cleaned.
There Are Several Unidentifiable and/or Forgotten Stains
Move some furniture, and you might find a stain that has been covered up for years. There are also the stains that happened so long age, you can't remember what caused them. When you cannot identify these stains or you have forgotten how they got there, now would be a good time to remove them. That special bottle of carpet cleaning solution you thought you were going to use on carpet stains is not going to work now. These stains may be so old that only a professional can remove them.
