Timber and Carpet Cleaning
House Cleaning Lane Cove
What is a healthier option for you home? Carpeted floors or bare timber floors?
Hardwood Timber Flooring – Home Cleaning Lane Cove.
Hardwood is one of the oldest flooring options. It remains reasonably popular because it is so long-lasting, and it is easy to clean. It can also be re-sanded several times to restore its original finish, or stained a different color.
There are two aspects to the ease of cleaning timber floors. One is that they are easy to sweep clean, or vacuum with a brush attachment. The other is that there is no place for dirt, germs, pollen or other contaminants to hide. So timber floors have an advantage for those who suffer allergies or asthma because they retain virtually no harmful materials.
If you have timber floors but like the feel of carpets under your feet then is a simple matter to add a rug or two. Many people add rugs in winter and leave the floor bare in summer months.
It is easy to clean a rug by taking it outside. And, unlike carpets, there is no under felt to retain moisture, mold, or other contaminants.
Carpet – Home Cleaning Lane Cove
Carpets can look great and feel good on bare feet. But they will tend to retain dirt and grime in their fibers. This can be a problem for several reasons. For one thing any pollen and mold retained in the carpet will aggravate allergies or asthma. For another thing any grim in the carpet will steadily wear away at the lower levels of the carpet fibers.
Any issues with keeping carpet clean can be significantly reduced by regular steam cleaning. If we steam clean every 6 months we remove the deep down dirt in the carpet fibers. This cleaning helps maintain the condition of the carpet.
Carpet has some advantages in that it provides a fair amount of soundproofing and thermal insulation.
Unless you are presently in the process of building a home you probably have to stay with the flooring you have. But if you employ professional cleaners we can get great results with any flooring materials.
