Carpet Cleaning Myths: Just Stop Believing This!

Carpet Cleaning Myths: Just Stop Believing This!

Carpets have been around since time immemorial and so have carpet cleaning procedures. New methods of professional carpet cleaning have given rise to a lot of myths surrounding carpet cleaning that dissuade people from getting and keeping their carpets clean.

A dirty carpet isn’t only full of dust and grime; it’s a breeding spot for diseases and germs. Actually, filthy carpets pollute the air inside your house leading to a number of ailments your family members might suffer with.

Accordingly, in order to keep your family healthy and your house clean, it is necessary to clean your carpet regularly. In the event the myths listed below have been keeping you out of cleaning your carpets, then we post them here so that you may give yourself and your family a cleaner and healthier home.

You Should Not Vacuum Carpets Too Much…Wrong

As soon as we see small balls of fluff getting sucked into the vacuum cleaner each time we vacuum, we believe that we are losing parts of our carpeting. However, research has demonstrated that vacuuming does not really destroy your carpeting. You can easily vacuum a carpet three to four times per week without quality loss for decades. Considering an ordinary carpet is vacuumed only three to four times a month, it’s very important that you increase the frequency of your vacuuming.

Professional Carpet Cleaning Shrinks Carpets…Nope

Gone are the days when rugs used to be made out of shrinkable natural materials like pure wool and silk. Nearly all rugs today are made out of nylon tied to a synthetic base. Since almost all people understand that synthetics do not shrink even in hot water, there are absolutely no chance of your carpeting shrinking or losing color because of steaming or warm water extraction. On the flip side, in the event that you actually have a wool or silk carpet, then hiring professionals for cleaning is a far better choice since they will know what to utilize while cleaning it so it loses neither color nor size.

Cleaning A Carpet Makes It Get Dirtier Faster??

We notice a carpet’s propensity for getting dirty increases exponentially the minute it has been cleaned. Regrettably this isn’t due to cleaning but due to “dirty” cleaning. If your carpet doesn’t get cleaned properly and residue of cleaning compounds are left inside, then it’s likely to bring in more dust and dirt than before.

It is important that the carpet is cleaned correctly and remains of compounds are completely eliminated. If cleaning is done correctly, your carpet will not pick up any more dirt than it was doing earlier. In fact, obtaining a Scotchgard coating can ensure that it remains clean and neat for a long time to come. The trick here would be to hire a fantastic professional rug cleaning business that knows its job rather than trying to do it yourself or hiring cheap but incompetent people.

  • I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you need a little more cleaning power, they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth-friendly. Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller, service-minded businesses over a huge corporation.

    I have been using Gary and the guys at Advanced Carpet Cleaning for over 20 years now and just wanted to say Thanks so much for a fantastic job once again! I had a couple of spills this time that I never thought would come out. Of course, Gary got them out and the carpets look great! Gary and his team are friendly, efficient and always do a wonderful job! I would highly recommend them!

    We recently moved into a new home that needed some work. We called Gary at Advanced, who met us at the home immediately following closing to clean the carpet and in our first week here we also hired Gary and team to clean our tile/grout and to do an ozone treatment to get rid of a cigarette smoke smell in our lower level. They not only did an amazing job and had our floors looking brand new, but completely rid our home of any smells and they were all so friendly and efficient. Thanks to Advanced we felt comfortable moving our family into our new home and making it our own. We would highly recommend Advanced and will definitely hire them again!
