Having carpet in your home can enhance your living space by adding beauty and style. Carpet gives you a comfortable place to sit, play or work and also gives a room an overall warmer feeling. People have a lot of opinions about carpet care. It’s time to clear up some myths associated with carpet cleaning!
My Carpet Doesn’t Look Dirty so I Don’t Need Professional Carpet Cleaning?
Many people think if their carpet doesn’t look dirty it doesn’t need to be cleaned. This is not true. Some carpets are good at hiding dirt but this doesn’t mean that there isn’t any to be removed. All dirt acts like an abrasive which can cause the loss of fiber protection and color and cause early wear. You may end up replacing it too soon and wasting your money. You may also hear people say that your carpet will get dirty faster after you clean it. While this may have been true in the past, it is not today. Professional carpet cleaners use products that don’t leave dirt attracting residue behind. It is the dirt residue that attracts the soil.
Over-Vacuuming Carpets is Bad?
You may also hear the claim that steam cleaning your carpet will ruin it. This isn’t true. The best way to clean your carpet is through steam cleaning which is with the use of hot water and extraction. Leading carpet cleaners and carpet manufacturers worldwide recommend steam cleaning. You may think using carpet deodorizers will keep your carpet fresh. This also is a myth. These scented powders can harm your carpet and add unnecessary dust to your home. Trying to vacuum all that up is almost impossible. It is also untrue that over vacuuming your carpet can harm it, so vacuum away! The best ways to keep your carpets clean is to vacuum entrances and high traffic areas more often, removing your shoes when indoors, and treating spots immediately so they don’t set and become permanent. Try to avoid chemicals and start with cold water and baking soda first to remove stains.
I Can Save Money on DIY Carpet Cleaning VS Hiring a Professional Carpet Cleaner
People say that carpet cleaning is expensive so they choose to do it less often. Waiting too long between cleanings can cause your home or office to be unhealthy. Clean carpets mean healthy indoor air quality. Indoor air quality can be eight to ten times worse than outside. Having your own machine means that you can do it yourself. You can definitely do it yourself but you will end up putting more water into your carpet that won’t get removed. DIY carpet cleaning results in a longer drying time and creates a perfect breeding ground for mildew, mold, and bacteria to grow. Bringing in a professional for mold is much more expensive than a carpet cleaning! Professional carpet cleaners like Carpet Care 2000 have powerful truck mounted extraction.
