            Carpet Cleaning

Benefits:  Dirt is like an abrasive – like sandpaper.  Every time you step on your carpet, you grind dirt into the fibers.  This cuts your carpet, just as if you had used a knife.  This cutting causes your carpet to wear out faster.  A dirty carpet will not last as long as a clean carpet.  And while vacuuming helps –by itself, it is not simply enough.  The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned, the more irreversible damage you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out.  Remember:  A clean carpet is a healthy carpet, adding warmth and comfort to your family.

    Carpet Repair – Re-stretching. 

Carpet ripples and buckles can cause irreversible damage to your carpet.  As soon as you notice these features developing, have your carpets  re-stretched by Victoria Carpet Care to protect your investment. 

    Upholstery Cleaning:

Benefits:  Most people don’t realize just how soiled their upholstered furniture is…and how much contaminated dirt, pollen, dust mite feces, pollution, and grunge sits in the cushions. Even if you keep your house Spartan clean, your couch may be a Trojan horse harboring an army of dust, mold and grime. Allergists, upholsterers and cleaners all agree that the key to keeping upholstered furniture in good shape is frequent vacuuming.Think of how much dust would accumulate on a table if it were never dusted. That same amount is on your sofa, too. You just can’t see it.   Dust is the #1 enemy of upholstered furniture. Gritty matter blows in through open doors and windows and impregnates itself on your furniture cushions and backs. Then, when you sit on the cushion, the oils from your skin compress the dirt into the fabric until it’s almost impossible to remove by vacuuming. The abrasive action of the grit compressing into the fiber cuts the fibers like a knife--that’s why your furniture wears out. Then, combine this with pollen, food crumbs, dust mites and their nasty fecal pellets…your furniture is literally awash with soil in the short span of just a year (with the average family). If you have pets and kids your furniture needs to be cleaned thoroughly at least once a year.

    Oriental and Area Rug Cleaning:

Benefits:  Because of the dense pile construction of area rugs, dirt particles work their way down through the fibers - to the backing foundation of the rug where they cannot be removed by ordinary vacuuming. This loose grit wreaks havoc on your rug’s delicate fibers, causing a cutting abrasive action as you walk on the rug. Abrasion accounts for fiber loss (wear) and embedded soil stains.

Other types of soil including food particles and pet oils “hide” in the dense pile, making your rugs an ideal haven for germs, bacteria, and other nasty creatures such as dust mites! Dust mites are too small to be seen but are the most common cause of year-round allergy and asthma. They live in mattresses, pillows, carpets, rugs, furniture, bedcovers, and clothes – anywhere they can feed on dead flakes of human skin. All foreign pollutants in your rugs should be removed by professional cleaning on a regular basis to keep your rugs “healthy”.
