“Since it’s May of 2011 and we don’t seem to get a spring this year, do I still have to get the carpets cleaned?” I know the weather here in the Twin Cities has been mimicking Seattle lately, but yes even their businesses need to have their carpets cleaned. In fact, the extra moisture this year poses an extra risk of mold and mildew in carpets. This happens because of the humid air as well as moisture being tracked in on people’s shoes. A thorough carpet cleaning and an enzyme deodorizer treatment is very important after the winter is over. The enzyme in the deodorizer feeds on the bacteria kills the source of smells and allergens.
Salt and sand are also tracked in from the Minnesota roads, parking lots, and sidewalks. They don’t affect houses as much since people usually take their shoes off at home. However, employees and customers rarely take their shoes off in a commercial setting. The more sand and salt gets trampled on the more damage it will do to the carpet. A powerful commercial carpet cleaning will clear this out of the carpet fibers allowing the carpet a fresh start. New debris will always get tracked onto the carpet, but keeping the overall amount of sand and salt at a minimum is crucial.
