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)!

Carpet Care Myth: You should wait until your carpets “look dirty” to get them cleaned

Carpet Care Myth: You should wait until your carpets “look dirty” to get them cleaned. Carpets are like sponges trapping toxins, pollutants, pathogens, bacteria (including E coli and salmonella), viruses, dead skin cells, dust, and all kinds of harmful compounds that you don’t want in your home. One study conducted by Dr. Philip Tierno, a microbiologist and immunologist, found indoor carpeting to be 4,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat, with about 200,000 bacteria per square inch. Regular carpet cleaning is crucial for maintaining a healthy home. We are here to help when you’re ready! See our contact information in our bio.
