Do you have you carpets and rugs professionally cleaned every so often? I have mine done about every 6 to 8 months and recently I started to become more conscious about the services I was using around my home because of my sons allergies. As a result, my carpet cleaning company of choice was also scrutinized. Unfortunately I found some reasons why I should make a switch when I did my research. But before I go into what made me made the change, im now using Chemdry of Duval in Jacksonville FL because their process is a lot cleaner. They use an organic cleaning solution combined with carbonated hot water.
At first I had always liked my old cleaners, they tried hard, made a noticeable difference in the appearance of my carpets but the techniques they used was outdated in my opinion. First, after reading into the company more I discovered they used some chemicals during the cleaning process I was surprised about. These were things I didn’t wants my children to be exposed to on a daily basis when they run around on the carpets barefoot or lay on them. Ive actually heard of kids who got sick just from unseen chemicals in carpets.
The next thing I noticed (just from observation) was that with the old carpet cleaners my carpets stayed damp sometimes for 3-5 days. During this time I always had to make sure to keep my kids off of them so they wouldn’t track dirt on the damp carpets that had just been cleaned. Looking into this more too, the excess damp time can be the perfect place for bacteria to grow. That’s another reason why Chemdry’s promise of rugs that dry in a matter of hours appealed to me so much. No offense to my old cleaning service but the health of my family is a priority.
