Myths about your carpets (part I)
Some old tricks in the bag and so-called facts are myths. You might have been misinformed and misguided about taking care of your carpet investment. It’s time to put those myths to rest and understand the facts about carpet cleaning.
Here are some of them:
– If I have my own cleaning crew, I don´t need professionals to clean my carpets
Having your own machine is convenient if you want to remove small stains or do routine house cleaning. Most machines don’t have the suction power like most machines professionals use. Home machines can then loosen the stains, but the residue will still be there.
– I’ll clean the carpet only if it has been stained
It’s very smart to have your carpet cleaned at least once in a year by a professional (Steam Green Carpet Cleaning). Especially if you have children and pets in the house.
– Wait a few years before having a new carpet cleaned.
Some carpets can hide more dirt and subtle stains than others but this doesn’t mean, that there are no stains to remove and that your carpet is 100% clean. All dirt, hidden or not, will act as an abrasive. This means your carpet may wear out early, lose fiber protection, and even lose some color. Waiting for years before having your carpet cleaned will also only do nothing but create possible health hazards, such as respiratory issues, allergies, and skin irritation and infection.
