Here at Carpet Cleaning Kings we still get a kick on hearing the cries of shock and amazement when we empty the dirty water collected from the recovery bucket after we’ve cleaned a client’s carpet. It seems to drive home the point that their carpet probably wasn’t as clean as they initially imagined. So why does a carpet attract all this dirt, dust and debris? Quite simply because it’s without doubt the largest filter in your home.
Every time an exterior door or windows are opened it acts just as a vacuum would and sucks tiny particles of dust, dirt and pollen which float around in the atmosphere. You know it exists, because it collects on ledges, surfaces and appliances in the form of dust. The particles that don’t fall on surfaces get sucked into your carpet and locked into the carpet fibres. More often than not, when we dust we think we’re removing it from the surface in question and indeed we are, but where does it end up…that’s right…in your carpet. In addition to this, your ever increasing collection of dust is topped up by debris brought in under foot by adults, children and pets.
As your carpet acts as a collection point for all manner of ‘stuff’ it gets compacted down as it’s walked upon. When this happens the dirt and dust acts as an abrasive and rubs away at the carpet fibres. Over time the carpet will appear matted and flat in appearance and when this happens it can be hard to resolve.
The bottom line is that you can’t stop dust coming into your home, nor can you stop your carpet acting as a filter for it. However what you can do is to make sure that it doesn’t build up. Regular daily vacuuming keeps surface dust at bay, but what’s more important is to tackle that deep down dust that’s lodged within the recesses of your carpet fibres. To do this you’ll need to deep clean your rug or carpet.
