5 reasons why only vacuuming your carpets isn’t enough to keep them properly clean

Carpets are the unsung heroes of our homes

You might think they're simply there to make your feet cosier when walking around barefoot, but that's not their only purpose.

They are also silently working to improve your indoor air quality by trapping dirt, dust, and allergens that float around. Essentially, they serve as a filter for your living space - but just like any filter, they require regular attention to stay effective at their job.

Vacuuming is of course a very helpful part of this ongoing maintenance, but when it comes to ensuring they're genuinely clean and hygienic, regular professional deep cleaning is necessary. If you're wondering just how regular that needs to be, our recent blog has got you covered.

Now let's delve into the 5 reasons why only vacuuming your carpets isn't enough to keep them in tip-top condition.

1) Vacuuming alone can't get rid of all the dirt

Whilst vacuums are fairly good at removing surface debris such as dust, crumbs, and pet hair, they always fall short when it comes to addressing the dirt and grime that are deeply embedded within the carpet fibres.

Just vacuuming also doesn't disinfect or eliminate the bacteria, viruses, or other germs that may be lurking within the carpet, potentially posing hidden health risks.

2) It doesn't remove allergens effectively

If you regularly find yourself sneezing or feeling unwell at home, your carpet might well be to blame. Carpets can house a multitude of allergens, including pollen, which are dragged in from outside on your footwear and clothing. This can trigger allergies or illness.

To maintain a healthy living environment, especially for those with allergies, we strongly recommend regular professional carpet cleaning every 6-12 months at least.

3) Professional deep cleaning can reduce your stress levels

It's true - research has shown that a clean home can have significant positive effects on your mind and body.

A clean living environment with fresh carpets can reduce stress, boost your immunity, and even improve your quality of sleep. Who knew? We did!

4) Vacuuming does not extend your carpet's lifespan

Running the hoover around the house once a week is commendable and encouraged, but it's not going to extend your carpet's lifespan like a deep clean does.

The longevity of your carpet depends on how often it receives professional cleaning. Over time, embedded dirt and grime can cause microabrasions that weaken both the carpet's fibres and weave.

Professional carpet cleaning using tools such as our amazing Zr Water revitalises these fibres, enhancing their durability, plushness, and ultimately extends their lifespan.

5) Vacuuming cannot remove stubborn stains

For those pesky and persistent stains - whether it's spills from food and drink, or pet mess - vacuuming alone will not suffice.

Specialised stain removal methods, like the ones only made possible by our amazing Zr Wand, are needed to effectively treat these unwanted blemishes and make your carpets look as good as new.
