Basement Carpet Cleaning Service
No matter how diligent you are, a carpet can never be kept spotless, especially in a room that you intend to use frequently. Many people use converted basements as spaces for entertaining and relaxing, so they are utilized extensively. You will inevitably get basement carpeting dirty.
Here are some of the reasons why you should clean the basement carpet with our professional carpet cleaning service.
Increased Moisture Levels
Even a modern built basement has less airflow than other parts of the house. Some basements don’t have any doors leading outside, or vents to help with the airflow. These are the worst culprits. Due to this, the humidity levels can increase. This is mainly due to restricted airflow. Increased humidity levels can cause all kinds of issues.
Basement carpets will attract all kinds of grime, germs and allergens as all carpets do. But, due to the restricted airflow, you will see issues present themselves much faster such as strange odours from stale air that isn’t all that bad. But this can lead to worse issues like the growth of mold on your basement carpet. Which can lead to health problems such as allergies. For this reason, you must regularly clean the carpet in your basement.
TIP – If you have doors, vents or windows in your basement. Make sure that you get fresh air flowing in your basement. It will help these issues. You can also place a dehumidifier in the basement if you don’t have any of the above.
As with most carpets, basement carpets are susceptible to dirt being tracked in on the bottom of people’s shoes, especially if there is a direct entrance from outside in the basement. Mud and oils are the most common things to be tracked into carpets and can be some of the hardest to remove.
Spills and Stains
Basements are commonly used as recreation rooms, meaning they are a place for watching TV, playing games, or general mingling. The likelihood of spilled drinks or food stains is much higher. Spills and stains can sink deep into the carpet’s fibres. Especially if they are not dealt with ASAP.
Pets love carpets. It provides them with a warm area to relax vs the tiles or other places. Part of owning pets is accepting the fact they will dirty up a carpet. Several times per year even! If you have a dog or a cat, then you will almost certainly need to have your carpet cleaned more frequently than those who don’t. If you do have a pet, then a plain, light-coloured carpet may be more difficult to maintain. A better option is a carpet housed in your basement that is a darker colour.
Our Basement Carpet Cleaning Process
No one wants a dirty basement, especially the carpets. Therefore, you should have your carpet deep cleaned regularly. We recommend a basement carpet cleaning every six months. But, if that’s not possible don’t let it go longer than a year due to the humidity issues that were discussed above. At Dynamik, for the most part, we use a steam cleaning process for basement carpets.
Step #1 – Pre-Inspection & Fibre Test
We inspect the carpet of your basement to make sure we know what we’re dealing with. Then we do a quick test on the carpet fibres to determine the fibre we are dealing with.
Step #2 – Power Vacuuming
We use a powerful industrial vacuum to vacuum the basement. This is an important step before steam cleaning takes place.
Step #3 – Steam Cleaning
We then get to work. We get to work with our carpet cleaner. The machine converts hot water into steam. The cleaning takes place on your carpets and gets rid of all the dirt, grime, stains, allergens and any other foreign matter that shouldn’t be in your carpet. Your carpets in your basement will look amazing once we are done.
Step #4 – Air Movers (Optional)
