Safety of Carpet Cleaning Chemicals for Pets and Humans.
Consider People and Pets When Choosing a Carpet Cleaning Company
If you live in a home with children or pets, you’re probably very familiar with the struggle of dealing with carpet stains. Youngsters and their four-legged friends simply don’t know any better, and unfortunately accidents do happen. Whether it’s a spilled drink or a house training issue, the end result is a blemish on your floor. You can definitely make a valiant effort to control things with home cleaning remedies, but sooner or later you’re going to need the seasoned hand of a pro.
With children and pets in the house, it’s very important to consider them when choosing the company to clean your floors. In this circumstance, a carpet is much more than a simple floor covering. Depending on the age of your children, they may spend a significant amount of time on the floor every day. Even if your young ones are old enough to spend most of the day on their feet, but you have animals in the house, you should still be concerned with how a business plans to clean your carpet.
One of the most common carpet cleaning methods today is steam cleaning. Steamers use a highly pressurized solution of hot water to loosen dirt from carpet fibers before vacuuming everything up. While many companies use this technique to clean floors, it requires a mixture of soaps and detergents to achieve the desired result. If performed by an untrained company, this process is can be extremely inefficient, resulting in long drying times, and you end up with a sticky residue on your carpet after everything dries. Wet carpets that take a long time to dry are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. If you have very young children or pets in the home, this fact is very important to consider, because there’s definitely a higher potential for them to get sick.
An alternative to traditional steam cleaning is called hot carbonating extraction which is performed exclusively by professionally trained ChemDry companies using non toxic, enivornmentally friendly products. For this method, technicians use a low pressure solution of hot carbonated water on your floors. Millions of microscopic bubbles act as tiny brushes, and they work quite efficiently to remove dirt particulates from your carpets. Because this procedure is so much more efficient, it doesn’t require the use of harsh chemical detergents to get the job done. As a result, when your carpet finishes drying (usually within 1-2 hours), you’ll have a completely spotless floor with no sticky chemical residue that could potentially end up in the mouth of a loved one.
You love having a clean home, but you love your family more. If your family includes small children, pets or allergy sufferers, you should definitely take them into account when choosing a company to clean your carpets. Young ones and animals spend quite a lot of time on the floor, and the last thing you want is for the ground to be completely coated with harsh detergents, chemicals and phosphates. Make the cleaner, greener choice and your family will thank you.
