You trusted the things your mother, grandmother, great grandmother (and so on) have handed down for generations. After all, wasn’t your grandmother the greatest carpet cleaner? Didn’t your mom always seem to have everything in order? Unfortunately, some of those old tricks in the bag and so-called facts are myths. You might have been misinformed and misguided about taking care of your carpet investment. It’s time to put those myths to rest and understand the facts about carpet cleaning.
Here are some of them:
Myth #1: “Cleaning Will Only Shrink My Carpet.”
Your carpet will not shrink—unless you or your cleaner leaves the carpet extremely wet. Professional cleaners will not allow this to happen, but you also need to play safe and check the carpet for wetness before the cleaners leave your home.
Myth #2: “I Should Wait a Few Years Before Having My New Carpet Cleaned.”
Some carpets can hide more dirt and subtle stains than others. This doesn’t mean, however, that there are no stains to remove and that your carpet is 100% clean. Also, all dirt, hidden or not, will act as an abrasive. This means your carpet may wear out early, lose fiber protection, and even lose some color. Waiting for years before having your carpet cleaned will also only do nothing but create possible health hazards, such as respiratory issues, allergies, and skin irritation and infection.
Myth #3: “I Only Need to Clean the Carpet If It Has Been Stained.”
As we have mentioned, dirt and residue that builds up in your carpet are not always noticeable. It’s smart to have your carpet cleaned at least once in a year by a professional—especially if you have small children and pets in the house.
Myth #4: “I Have My Own Machine. I Don’t Need to Hire a Professional.”
Having your own machine is convenient if you want to remove small stains or do routine house cleaning. Most machines, however, don’t have the suction power like most machines professionals use. Home machines can then loosen the stains, but the residue will still be there.
Myth #5: “All Carpet Cleaners are the Same; I Should Choose the Cheapest One”
Do not hire a carpet cleaner simply because their services are the cheapest. Bad carpet cleaning can only leave your carpet worse than it already is, so don’t settle for anything just because their price is the lowest.
