Get to Know the Truth Behind These Common Carpet Cleaning Myths 

If you’re a new carpet owner, you may have heard a few things about professional carpet cleaning. Instead of believing everything you hear, get to know the truth behind some of the most common carpet cleaning myths. 

Carpet Cleaning Will Change My Carpet 

Professional carpet cleaning methods have come a long way when compared to those of the past. While old methods, especially those that use water extraction, may have left carpets looking a bit different, that’s not the case today. Professional carpet cleaning is regularly needed in order to keep a carpet at its best. The only change they will cause is making your carpets look cleaner. Instead of waiting until your carpet is clearly dirty, invest in a professional carpet cleaning service at least once a year. 

Vacuuming Isn’t Necessary Between Cleanings 

If you regularly have your carpets cleaned, vacuuming will still be necessary. A professional cleaning and your regular vacuuming take care of different cleaning tasks. Vacuuming helps remove debris on the surface of your carpet. This includes dirt, hair, crumbs, and dust among other types of debris. Taking care of vacuuming will help reduce damage to your carpet between cleanings because it will remove potentially abrasive materials from your carpet fibers. 

I Only Have to Vacuum Once a Week 

Vacuuming once a week will leave your carpet exposed to abrasive materials that will have an impact on your carpet fibers. Although you may not be able to see it, dirt and other debris can build up on your carpet over a week. These substances then get pushed into your carpet fibers and can cause premature wear. Your carpet fibers will end up looking crushed and dirty. To prevent this, simply vacuum the carpeted areas of your home daily. This is especially important if you have pets in your home or small children. Pets can leave behind dander that, along with other allergens, can affect the air quality in your home. Since small children spend a lot of time moving around on the surface of your carpet, keeping the area clean is essential for their wellbeing.

I Can Remove Stains Myself 

Spills and accidents are bound to happen. Before you try to treat stains yourself, keep in mind that retail cleaners may not be the answer. Although there are cleaners for just about every type of spill, these may be too abrasive for your carpet. Most of these cleaners include harsh chemicals that can affect the dye and fibers that make up your carpet. This means that you may notice color fading and fibers looking worn in areas where retail cleaners were used. It’s best to skip these harsh chemicals for the wellbeing of your pets and family members that like to lounge on the carpet. Instead of treating a stain yourself, trust your local professional carpet cleaners to take care of it safely for you. 

Professional Carpet Cleanings Are Not Necessary 

Some carpet owners think that keeping up with regular carpet maintenance and avoiding stains is enough to keep their carpets clean. The truth is, however, that no matter how much you keep up with maintenance, your carpet will still need to be professionally cleaned. Chances are you don’t have the tools needed to clean beyond your carpet’s surface safely. A professional carpet cleaning service has the tools and techniques needed to keep your carpet at its best. Most of the tools and solutions they use are not available for retail sale, so it’s best to trust their experience and allow them to take care of the job. 

All Carpet Cleaning Methods Are the Same 

There are many types of carpet cleaning services available, each with their own set of tools and methods. Before choosing a carpet cleaning service, be sure to do plenty of research on their techniques and how these can affect your carpet and your home. Don’t let the price of a cleaning make the decision for you; really pay attention to what their cleaning service offers.
