Carpet Cleaning Services
While we connect the need of carpet cleaning services mostly due stains,wear and tear from humans and pets, pest infestations is also something we should keep in mind. Pest infestations typically occur in residential settings, but commercial buildings and facilities are not immune to being infested.
Our friends at Pest Control Elk Grove CA told us that dust mites, ants, ticks and fleas are very common in infesting a structure from floor to ceiling and carpet fibers are not forgiven by these pests.
Carpet fibers hold a lot of dust, debris and food crumbs. Carpet is the catch of all things we don’t see. The things we don’t see or generally don’t pay attention to is typically the number one food source for ants and cockroaches. By getting rid of their food source, home owners and building keepers can greatly reduce their chance of survival, which is why professional carpet cleaning services is very important when it comes to pest control and prevention.

Green Carpet Cleaning
Weather you choose a traditional Carpet Cleaning Service or an Eco-Friendly Carpet Cleaner, together with a good thorough vacuuming program, many have success controlling pest populations through hot water extraction or steam carpet cleaning. While there are many types of carpet extractors available, from portable units to truck-mounted systems carpet cleaning helps keep pests away and that is the goal.
The combination of high steam and vacuuming is effective because when you use dry steam on the carpet, the carpet fibers spread apart. When you vacuum after that, not only have you applied steam that kills living things in the carpet, but you’ve opened the fibers to extract more soil.
