“Are We A ‘Throw Away’ Society?”

A lot of people are realizing that the ways of yesteryear make a lot of sense. In fact, a growing trend has been to look to our grandparents and great grandparents for inspiration. More and more people are buying used cars, growing their own organic food, composting, eating in, making their own cleaning supplies, and opting for bicycles and public transportation. It’s hip to live mindfully!

Good old-fashioned value will never go out of style, and that is something you can always count on from Ideal Carpet Cleaning. With all this talk about returning to the conservative habits of days gone by, how about applying some of these principals to carpet cleaning?

The Three R’s of Carpet Cleaning

We are all familiar with the “Three Rs”: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. These rules factor well into living mindfully. Here is my carpet cleaning version of the 3 Rs:

Reduce: We can reduce indoor air pollution and the wear and tear on our carpets by removing our shoes in the home, vacuuming often, and getting the carpets cleaned every 6-12 months. These preventative measures work to extend the life of carpet and reduce the frequency of replacing carpet.

Reuse: Recently there has been a real trend with many of my clients cleaning more frequently. Whereas 10 years ago people were replacing their carpets more often, today they are reusing what they have by maintaining a good cleaning schedule.

Recycle: When your carpet finally does wear out – how about recycling it? Find out all about how you can at Westboro Flooring & Decor is the only carpet store in Ottawa to offer carpet recycling services to turn old carpet and under pad into new carpet or plastic goods.

At Ideal Carpet Cleaning you will find value and quality cleaning that will extend the life of your carpet and restore its beauty so you don’t have to think about replacing/recycling your carpet for a long, long time.
