Four Common Carpet Cleaning Misconceptions
Some people misunderstand the purpose of professional carpet cleaning services. Geelong’s Cleanest Carpets want to straighten out a few of the common misconceptions people may have about getting their carpets cleaned by a professional. We want to give everyone a greater understanding about why professional carpet cleaning is important so here are our carpet cleaning misconceptions – BUSTED.
1. You should wait until you’ve got visible stains before calling in the professionals:
The number one concern of many homeowners is removing stains from their carpet and many people actually delay carpet cleaning until the point where there are lots of stains that are driving them crazy! It’s common to have clients walk around with their carpet cleaning technician and point out all of the stains, and while spot cleaning stains can certainly be performed by carpet cleaners, it is not our main function. First and foremost, carpet cleaning is for the removal of dirt and deep-set grime in your carpet which will not only make your carpet look cleaner but also extend its life. One thing homeowners should note is that without regular professional cleaning, you carpet may wear out much faster. Don’t let those stains build up and drive you bonkers, call Geelong’s Cleanest Carpets today for the thorough deep clean and stain removal service (03) 5292 1482.
2. Carpet cleaning machines can ruin your carpet
You might be worrying about the equipment, heat and cleaning products used in professional carpet cleaning and reaction your carpet might have. Fear not, even under the most extreme conditions, professional steam cleaning will not ruin your carpet by taking the twist out of the carpet fibres. Nylon is one of the most popular yarns used in carpet manufacturing on the market today, and yarns used in carpet production are set under constant high heat to help increase their resiliency and maintain their twist and structure. At Geelong’s Cleanest Carpets we have the most up to date procedures, techniques and cleaning detergents to ensure your carpets clean correctly and thoroughly.
3. Carpets will collect more dirt after being cleaned than if they simply were not cleaned at all.
This may have been true years ago when carpets were literally shampooed, but still only when a carpet cleaning company did not employ the right cleaning agents and techniques. With modern methods, this is no longer a risk as long as you hire a professional, trusted company (like us!). With that said, it is still recommended to buy carpet protector when you get your carpets cleaned as this will reapply the protecting agents that most carpets come with today, helping your carpets fight staining and wear and tear for a few more years to come. When proper and periodic cleaning is combined with the correct application of carpet protector, you can expect an extended life and cleaner look for your carpet.
4. You should hold off cleaning your carpet as long as possible
We’re not sure why this is a misconception but it’s out there so let’s BUST it. By holding off cleaning your carpet for as long as possible you’re not only allowing your carpet to collect more dirt and grime in the deep fibres, you’re also increasing allergy causing bugs in the air in your home. Dust mites love making carpet their home and their faeces is highly allergenic. By getting your carpets professionally cleaned you’re not only making them look fresher and cleaner but you’re also improving the air quality in your home by removing allergy causing bacteria that live in your carpet.
