Your house reflects your personality, which is why we’re so keen on keeping it pristine. Whether it’s your living room or your bedroom, your carpet or your rug—it should be spotless!
Unfortunately, there have been ample myths associated with carpet cleaning that have prevailed to the point where we no longer discern between fact and fiction.
Here are some of the myths we have pointed out for you.
Carpet Cleaning: Dispelling Myths
Myth#1 – What looks Clean doesn’t need Cleaning
This is perhaps the biggest mistake. The carpet that “looks clean” is actually accumulating dust which slowly degrades the fabric of your carpet.
Myth#2 – Vacuuming is Your Carpet’s Savior
You vacuum your carpet every week diligently. Dust is just one of the elements that attack your carpet.
What happened to that curry stain from last Thanksgiving? You dabbed it out, but it’s there—ever so light—but it’s there nonetheless.
These stains, when not completely removed, stay and are ingrained deep within your carpet’s fibers affecting its fabric and aesthetic appeal.
A vacuum job won’t remove them. You need deep cleaning.
Myth#3 – The Right Equipment is all that Matters
While some companies may own excellent equipment and technologies, they do not have skilled technicians to get the job done. As a result, their services are never up to the mark and you end up wasting your money.
Myth#4 – Hiring Professional Cleaners is a Waste of Money
Removing dust is not just the goal. It’s important to understand that. If you have pets and kids at home, chances are you’re dealing with pet urine and soiled carpets.
Bacteria and mold is lurking in your carpet. They may trigger allergies or skin infections in the long run. Schedule your carpets for professional cleaning every 6 to 8 months.
Myth#5 – Using Baking Soda and Deodorant to remove Smell
Baking soda and deodorants only mask the odor, temporarily. They do nothing toeliminate the source of it—which is accumulating bacteria.
Myth#6 – Discount or Disaster?
Many companies offer surprisingly low, “budget cleaning”. They attract customers through discounts while using low-quality equipment that damage your carpet’s quality and do very little actual cleaning.
