New Carpet Fibers: Here’s an illustration of what your carpet fibers look like when they’re new-all squeaky clean. new_carpet_fibers
worn_carpet_fibers worn.carpet.fibers Worn Carpet Fibers: Let’s face it. We live in New England where dirt and mud (especially in mud season) and other allergens get ground into your carpet fibers. These home-intruders leave your carpet fibers worn, making their surfaces more porous. They can even act as sand paper, wearing down the carpet fibers.
Dirty Carpet Fibers: As your carpet fiber surfaces become worn and walked upon, their now porous surfaces attract more dirt, pollen, allergens along with everything else your family and visitors have brought home from the outside world. In a way, this is your carpet working hard to do its job, to be the largest air filter in your home. dirty_carpet_fibers
Forget all the ’70’s hype about tearing out all carpeting and putting in hard flooring, that ‘health’ frenzy was based upon unfounded speculation.Numerous truly scientific studies performed the world over in the past decades have proven that carpeting, when cleaned regularly, will capture airborne allergens and keep them trapped, so you won’t breathe them in, making your home a healthier environment.The best way to have all these foreign particles effectively removed from your carpets is by the truck-mounted hot water extraction method, as used by Catamount Carpet Cleaning, Inc, an IICRC certified firm. However, this will only bring your carpet fibers back to the second illustration, porous surfaces, wide open for foreign invaders to get lodged into your home.
protected_fibers Carpet Protectant: When carpet protectant is applied after a professional cleaning, the porous openings in your carpet fibers are filled in, leaving a smooth, like-new surface. With carpet protection spills do not penetrate the surface of your carpet and come up with ease.  Regular vacuuming is more effective too.
This adds years to your carpet’s beauty and makes your home more healthy!  Don’t just clean your carpets, protect them! Your family deserves all the health benefits that professional cleaning, protectant, and regular vacuuming can provide. Call Catamount now for a FREE estimate.
