Carpet Cleaning Myths
Most people do not think about much more than vacuuming and the occasional shampooing when it comes to caring for their carpeting. This practice can lead to some problems that can be expensive and/or harmful, though. To keep your carpets protected and lasting longer, we will discuss three of the common myths circulating about carpet cleaning.
Myth one: My carpet is only a year old so it doesn’t need to be cleaned.
This is a huge misconception when it comes to caring for your carpets. Many people think you only need to clean carpets when they start to look dirty. Once you start seeing the dirt and debris in your carpet, though, it is often too late. Microscopic particles of dust and dirt are tracked onto your carpet daily. When they are walked on, the constant movement will grind the particles into your carpets protective fibers and cause them to break down. Over time, this all adds up and your carpet will be worn down little by little.
Myth two: I can simply clean my carpets myself instead of hiring it done.
Yes, we all like to do things ourselves to save money at times. And you can see these carpet cleaning machine rentals at most grocery and home improvement stores. This may seem like a quick and easy way to clean your carpets, but they can cause your carpet a lot of serious damage. These machines use a lot of water on your carpet, but they are unable to suck the water back out effectively. This means your carpets will take longer to dry and be susceptible to damaging the backing on the carpet as well as the growth of mold and mildew. Also, the chemicals used in these machines can damage your carpets. It is estimated that around thirty-three percent of carpets lose some of their coloring from these rental machines.
Myth 3: I can sprinkle on a carpet deodorizer to keep my carpets fresh.
This is another household product that can potentially hurt your carpeting. These deodorizers contain talcum powder. This powder will not dissolve in water and will embed in your carpet fibers. No matter how much you vacuum, some of the powder will stay in the carpet. When you next get them cleaned, the water will mix with the leftover talcum powder and leave a white stain in your carpet.
