There is a lot of stipulation concerning professional carpet cleaning. Many hear a few opinions of others and take it as bible truth.
Well, today D&M Carpet Cleaning would like to let you in on facts regarding professional carpet cleaning and dispel some of the myths floating around.
Myth: Steam cleaning ruins carpets.
Fact: It is true many professionals use steam cleaning, which is hot water extraction. A trained technician knows how to work the equipment properly, and using the correct detergents, push out the underlying dirt and stains; leaving a clean and sanitized carpet in its wake without any damage to carpets. The amateur, however, can misuse the equipment and use wrong detergents or too much water that will ruin carpets.
Myth: Carpets that appear clean don’t need a professional cleaning.
Fact: Not true. Some carpets can mask the dirt better than others, but after time; dirt, bacteria, and filth build up. Dirt can be very abrasive to carpets and will wear the carpet out much sooner if left untreated.
Myth: Carpets under a year old don’t need professional cleaning.
Fact: A common misconception. Dirt and soil that has not reached the surface area is still present. By the time you can see the dirt, the damage it causes has already started. If you attend to the dirt below the surface beforehand, you can extend the life and vibrancy of your fresh new carpet.
Myth: Carpet deodorizer powder is enough to keep carpet fresh and clean.
Fact: Over-used scented carpet powders cause unnecessary damage. It is impossible for the vacuum to collect all the powder and the residue left behind only creates additional dust.
Myth: Once a professional cleaning has been done, the carpet gets filthier faster.
