Call Best Thousand Oaks Carpet Cleaners today for all of your stair carpet cleaning needs! We know how to best clean the carpets on your stairs in order to make your home look as great and clean as ever!
All of the carpets in your home at dirty at one point, but the carpets that get the most dirty are undoubtedly the carpets that cover your stairs. Day and night, barefoot or with shoes, you and your family are walking up and down the stairs. Not to mention pets, who don’t even wear shoes! Dirt is constantly being brought into your home, and when you walk up and down the stairs, you are depositing and spreading that dirt into your carpet.
With each step, you are also pushing the dirt further into the carpet with the sheer weight of your body. If the bottom of your shoe has dirt, mud, grass, or gravel on it, you are merely pushing it down further and further into the carpet fibers with each step. This makes your carpet dirty, but can also make it unsafe to walk on.
If you walk on a gravel or dirt road and get tiny, sharp rocks stuck to the bottom of your shoe, you might push them into the carpet when you step on it. If you push these sharp rocks into the carpet and then someone steps on the carpet with their bare feet, they will impale themselves on that sharp rock and could hurt their foot. Or, your cat or dog could eat in and choke on it. Routinely vacuuming your stairs is a really good idea- it helps pick up all of the debris that has fallen into your carpet so that you and your family do not step on it.
Animals track in dirt with their paws. When they go and play outside in the dirt, they track in the dirt and mud with them. They don’t know any better! They don’t know to wipe their paws on the mat outside the door. When dogs and cats play outside, they often end up getting wet! Having a dirty dog or cat track in not only dirt and mud, but water, is a nightmare for your home. When a dog drips water onto the carpet, the water can seep into the fibers and mold and mildew can begin to grow. When the water is dirty, the mold and mildew problem will become worse. Muddy water also spreads and can be pushed far down into the carpet, which means that surface cleaning will not be enough to get rid of all of the muck. It is inevitable that the dog or cat will dirty your carpets, so making sure you clean them often and thoroughly is a smart investment.
You might think that shoes are the only things that can cause your carpets to get dirty, but barefeet can cause your carpets to get dirty, as well. Your bare feet can shed dead skin that can get caught in your carpet, and sweat from your barefeet can dampen your carpet. Bacteria can grow in the presence of liquid, even sweat, which means that your carpet would be at risk for mildew and bacteria growth from just the moisture of your feet.
If you put your shoes on in your room and then walk downstairs, you will be tracking dirt with you down the stairs. Especially women and men who have a lot of shoes, as they cannot fit all of their shoes downstairs in the mudroom or front hall space.
No matter what you do, even if you try to not wear shoes in the house, your stair carpeting will get dirty. So call us today to do the carpet cleaning for you. We will make sure your stairs are safe to walk on and look clean and welcoming for you and your guests! Call Best Thousand Oaks Carpet Cleaning today.
