Cleaning after a crime

After we had our home burgled I had to clean it from top to bottom. It felt kind of dirty at home, as though all of our possession had been contaminated by the crime. I know that everyone whose home is broken into or the victim of a crime at home goes through similar feelings of creepiness and a need to clean. I thought it might be useful to start a blog to discuss how to clean the house or the best cleaning services to use to help your house feel like a home again. It should be useful to anyone who has gone through a bad experience and needs a fresh start in their own beloved home.

Two Reasons Why Carpet Steam Cleaning Services Are So Popular

Here are some reasons why carpet steam cleaning services are so popular.

This service allows people to sanitise their carpets regularly without damaging them

People with pets, young children or lifestyles that result in their carpets getting dirty quickly need to sanitise their carpets a lot. One of the reasons for this service's popularity is that it can allow people to do this without damaging their carpets. This is because when a professional uses steam to clean a client's carpets, they don't need to vigorously scrub the entire carpet to mechanically lift away pathogens; instead, their equipment injects steam into the fibres of the carpet and this hot vapour kills the pathogens, without the need for the scrubbing that people have to do when they use carpet-cleaning detergents.  

Because steam-cleaning doesn't involve scrubbing the carpet fibres vigorously with strong detergents and scrubbing tools, these fibres don't fray, fade or fall out anywhere near as fast as they would if they were scrubbed. This means that those who need to sanitise their carpets every few weeks can do so, without having to be concerned that such frequent sanitisation could result in them having to buy new carpets in the near future. It also means that they can safely sanitise carpets that are already old, worn and a bit frayed, as the steam-cleaning equipment won't exacerbate this damage.

Carpet steam cleaning doesn't involve the use of any chemical-based products

The other reason for the popularity of carpet steam-cleaning services is that they don't involve the use of chemical-based products but instead utilise pure, clean vaporised water. This is useful for people who are highly sensitive to conventional carpet cleaning products. When used on carpets, these products can often leave behind residues that those with skin sensitivities can find irritating if they walk on their carpets with their bare feet or if they lie down on them whilst doing home workouts. As such, by opting for this cleaning method, those with skin issues don't have to remember to put on shoes before walking on their carpets or lay mats down on their carpets before working out on them.

The lack of conventional cleaning chemicals in the steam-cleaning process also appeals to those with pets, who may have concerns about their animals breathing in or ingesting the chemical residues that carpet-cleaning products can leave behind when they play or sleep on the carpeted floors that have been cleaned.
