Common Misconceptions about Hiring a Professional Carpet Cleaning Company
How many of you have always been cleaning (simply vacuuming) your carpets on your own ever since you bought them? This is what many homeowners do, vacuuming their carpets once a week thinking that they are cleaning them. But the fact is that, vacuuming your carpet doesn’t do any good. This improper care will lead to expensive consequences over time. However, the reason behind this is probably the common misconceptions most homeowners have when it comes to hiring professionals to clean their carpets.
So, we have decided to break those misconceptions and help you understand what is right.
My carpet is relatively new and therefore it doesn’t have to be cleaned
This is perhaps the most common misconception among homeowners. Most people think that their carpet doesn’t have to be cleaned or need professional care unless and until it starts to look dirty. If this thought sounds familiar to you, then you have been doing a big mistake. When you head back home from the outdoors, you will be carrying a lot of minute dirt on your shoes, which will easily be transferred to your carpet. The regular foot traffic on the carpet will embed this dirt deep inside the carpet fibers, causing it to lose its original beauty. Therefore, it is vital that you seek professional help right from when you start using a carpet.
All my carpet needs is a sprinkle of carpet deodorizer to become fresh again
Sprinkling carpet deodorizer is a popular practice in households. However, most homeowners are not aware of the fact that the powder can actually get embedded deep inside the carpet as they do not get disintegrated with water. As a result, no matter how many times you vacuum or steam clean your carpet, the powder will remain and eventually form stains all over your carpet, making it look completely unappealing.
I can hire commercial machines and do the cleaning myself
Yes, this is a relatively affordable solution when compared to hiring a professional carpet cleaning company, mainly because carpet cleaning machines are available for hire in many home improvement and hardware stores in every neighborhood. However, remember that your carpet could get damaged easily when you choose to perform the cleaning on your own. This is because most carpet cleaning machines that are available for hire are not powerful enough to remove all the dirt from your carpet and also to perform thorough water extraction.
As a result, there will be at least some amount of water left behind in your carpet, which will take a lot of time to dry, preventing you from using it immediately after the cleaning process. Not being able to use the carpet will be a definite burden especially when you have kids and pets at home. Also, extra moisture on carpets will lead to the growth of mould or mildew, thus damaging your carpet once and for all.
When you make a huge investment in your carpet, why waste it with your misconceptions? Hire a professional carpet cleaner and remain free of worries.
