SHOULD YOU CLEAN NEW CARPET?

Professional carpet cleaning is most often associated with cleaning old and dirty carpet. You probably don’t think there is a need to clean new carpet after it is installed but it is actually a very good idea.

Your new carpet contains several toxins from various repellants and chemicals from manufacturers. Some of these toxins are called volatile organic compounds or VOCs for short. VOCs emit toxic fumes you don’t want to subject yourself too for too long.

We recommend hiring a professional carpet cleaning Bloomington service shortly after the new carpet is installed. Before the carpet cleaner arrives be sure to keep your home well ventilated too. Run ceiling fans, floor vans and open windows in your home so that the fumes don’t settle for too long.

The VOC fumes are the very worst for the first 72 hours after the installation of the carpet but they will continue to emit for years after installation if the VOCs are not removed from the carpet.

Unfortunately you cannot just vacuum to remove the VOCs. You need deep carpet cleaning to 100% remove them.

Chem-Dry of Bloomington in Bloomington, Indiana uses a powerful green cleaning agent called The Natural®. The Natural permeates into new carpet fibers and lifts the toxins and VOCs from the fibers to the surface. We then use our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process to extract the toxins into disposal tanks.

To best enjoy your brand new carpet, don’t wait until it is dirty to schedule carpet cleaning. Call right away and remove the VOCs and shedding from new carpet.

We recommend you hire a carpet cleaner in Bloomington one time every year too even if the carpet does not appear dirty. Just like the VOCs in new carpet, germs, bacteria and dirt are microscopic and invisible to the human eye.

Your new carpet will last much longer if you are diligent about hiring professional carpet cleaning.
