If you just had carpet installed in your home, it is normal to want to know everything about the maintenance process that will help you protect this big investment. You will likely have questions about what you should and should not do to ensure it will last as long as possible. There are some common misconceptions out there that should be addressed on this topic. Carpet Care 2000 is here to answer some of the most common misconceptions about professional carpet cleaning.
Should New Carpet Be Cleaned?
You would never avoid cleaning your new shower until it was so dirty that you didn’t want to step inside any longer. The same goes with your carpet. Just because you had new carpet installed in your home, doesn’t mean that you should avoid getting that new carpet cleaned until you can really see it is dirty. Regular carpet cleaning is going to help you extend the life of your carpet.
Will Professional Carpet Cleaning Remove Anti-Stain Coating?
If you chose carpet that came with an anti-stain coating on it to help you battle the normal wear and tear of everyday use, you don’t want to jeopardize that in any way. A common misconception is that professional cleaning will hurt that anti-stain coating on your new carpet. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, many manufacturers will require that you have your carpet cleaned professionally every 12-18 months to keep the warranty intact. Professional carpet cleaning done right, should be there to enhance any stain protection that may be on the fibers of your carpet, not hurt them.
Does Steam Cleaning Wear Out Carpet Pad
The carpet pad beneath your carpet is just as important as the carpet itself. Some homeowners find that they are worried that professional cleaning will cause the pad to wear out quicker when in all actuality, the fine dirt and dust that collects on your carpet pad is what will start to break down your carpet pad. Professional cleaning will actually keep that pad from breaking down prematurely.
Will Steam Cleaning Make Carpet Crunchy?
You can expect your carpet to start feeling coarser when you avoid professional cleaning rather than the other way around. Dirt builds up on the fibers of your carpet just like it does on your carpet pad. When you don’t remove that dirt, your carpet will start to feel coarse underfoot. When your carpet is professionally cleaned, those carpet fibers won’t be clumped together, and your carpet will actually feel softer underneath your feet.
DIY VS Professional Carpet Cleaning
DIY carpet cleaning with a plug in store bought machine or rental is likely to leave your carpet wet and sticky because these machines just aren’t capable of extracting all of the water, cleaning solution and contaminants. A professional like Carpet Care 2000 knows exactly what type and amount of cleaning solution to use. In addition, we utilize an advanced truck mounted system with powerful extraction.
