Do you have carpet in your basement? If you do, chances are at some point you will need a professional basement carpet cleaner. There are many things that can happen to basement carpet. Below are 3 of the most common reasons to have your basement carpet professionally cleaned in Birmingham, AL.
- Lets face it, almost everyone who has a basement has some type of flooding over the years. There are many ways that water can seep up into your basement. Some basements have built in sump pumps to control any surprise flooding, but many basements don’t have this option. Whether it’s a busted pipe or a hard rain that causes water pressure to come up through cracks in the slab, most basements will get some type of flood damage. When floods happen, the first thing you should do is call a professional to extract the water from your carpet. A professional carpet cleaner who has a truck mount unit will be able to do this. Sometimes, the carpet cleaner will also be able to perform all of the water damage services as well.
- Regular maintenance of basement carpet includes vacuuming and deep cleaning via hot water extraction every 12 months. Most people neglect both these maintenance options. If vacuuming is neglected, the need for deep cleaning via hot water extraction becomes extremely important to sustain the projected life of the carpet. With little or no vacuuming, the frequency of professional carpet cleaning should increase to at least every 6 months.
- Mold or Mildew
- Basements by nature have a high moisture content. This is especially true for basements that are underground. The good thing about basement carpet is that the fibers tend to stay true to their original color because it usually doesn’t see natural sunlight. The bad thing about basement carpet is that it is the place you’re most likely to find mold. When the odor of mold and mildew starts to travel in the air, it is an extremely good idea to call a professional. A professional carpet cleaner can not only kill the mold, but they can give your carpet the deep cleaning it needs.
