Moving house has been hailed as one of the most stressful things to do, along with planning a wedding, getting divorced and having a baby. Therefore, it is a good idea to do whatever you can to make the transition go as smoothly as possible, from the moment you start packing your belongings to after you have got the keys to your new home.
One of the first things you should consider before unpacking is getting your carpets cleaned, and here are a few reasons why.
– Removal pet hair
If you are allergic to animal fur, it is wise to have the carpets professionally cleaned. Whether the previous owners had pets or not, you do not know if or how often they allowed other people’s furry friends into their home.
For those with strong allergies, it won’t take a lot before you are sneezing or feeling itchy if there are traces of animal fur – or even urine – on the floor.
– Get rid of stains
Unless the carpet was brand new when you moved in, no-one has a blemish-free floor. There are sure to be stains from red wine or coffee spillages, muddy marks, melted chocolate or footprints that have accumulated over the years.
When all the furniture has been removed, these stains become even more obvious, and if your sofa or cabinets do not fit in the exact same position as the previous owner’s, you’ll notice the contrast between the clean carpet and the dirty areas immediately.
– Get rid of germs
Hiring a Gerrards Cross carpet cleaning professional won’t just improve the look of your home, but it will also ensure your new property is germ-free. There is an endless list of nasty things that can live and thrive in carpet fibres, including dust mites, dead skin cells, insect faeces and husks, bacteria and mould.
Therefore, by getting the carpets expertly cleaned, you can eradicate a considerable number of germs straight away.
