For days it seemed I was walking on damp carpet and my dog started coughing and gagging, which probably meant I didn’t remove all the soap. Worst of all, there was a strange mildew smell I just couldn’t get rid of.
It cost me a pretty penny.
So if you’re thinking, “What’s the big deal, let me assure you that it is.” Get them cleaned professionally and, for carpet cleaning in Tracy, CA, that would be with Gary’s Floors.
If you don’t do it, your carpet:
● Won’t last as long
There’s a funny, but true, cartoon of a cat shredding upholstery. The cat says, “Why should I wreck my stuff?” We know that if you take care of something, it’ll last longer. Period.
● Will be harder to clean when you do clean it
The more dirt builds up and the longer stains set, will just make it that much harder to clean. You rush an article of clothing to the dry cleaners when there’s a stain, right?
● Will trap harmful substances
Gross! Food remnants, germs, dust, bacteria, hair, dirt, dead skin, and pet dander, among other (horrible) things, will just hang out in your carpet. Indoor air quality will suffer and family can get sick, especially if they love to sit or lie on the floor.
● Will make your home smell
We covered that with my story. Those odors will not disappear, so keep the carpet clean. Did I mention that someone actually walked into my home and said, “What smells?”
● May not maintain warranty
Your carpet warranty possibly states that, to be valid, the carpet must be professionally steam cleaned at least once every 12-18 months. If you neglect the carpet, not only will it affect the look and smell of your house, but you may not be legally entitled to the warranty if there’s any damage.
The best thing? Take care of the carpet, and call the carpet cleaners at Gary’s Floors in Tracy, CA.
