Carptet Cleaning Myth: Cleaning too often "wears out" your carpet.

Carpet Cleaning Myth: Cleaning too often “wears out” your carpet.

Fact: The opposite is actually true! Walking on a dirty carpet grinds the dirt deep into the carpet fiber, which is damaging to it because dirt itself is abrasive and cuts into the carpet. This causes premature wear so it actually shortens the lifespan of the carpet. Regularly vacuuming your carpet is important but it doesn’t take away the need for regular professional cleanings. The longer you delay in having your carpets cleaned, the more damage is done, and the faster it wears out (which means the sooner you have to pay to replace it)!

What You Should Know If You Use Home Cleaning Products On Your Carpet

Have you ever used a home carpet cleaning product and notice your carpet seemed to get re-soiled quickly? Soaps can be responsible for this as they cause rapid re-soiling if not rinsed well from the carpet. If you’ve ever spilled a lot of soap in your sink, you know how long it takes to rinse all the soap out and how much water you had to use in order to do that. Soap in your carpet isn’t easy to remove and you can’t just dump loads of water on it without creating another problem. Do-it-yourself and other home carpet cleaning machines don’t have a strong enough suction to remove it either. In these cases you’ll likely be in need of a professional carpet cleaning utilizing hot water extraction to thoroughly rinse the carpet and remove all the soap and whatever else was applied to it. If you’re in need of a cleaning, let us know. We can help!
