5 Carpet Cleaning Myths


5 Carpet Cleaning Myths You Should Know About

Over the years, many years, we have heard many comments and beliefs about carpet cleaning.

In this article we are going to go over some of the more
common carpet cleaning myths.

Why Are There So Many Carpet Cleaning Myths?

Well, for a couple of reasons.

The main reason is that the carpet cleaning industry, as whole, has  not done a good job of informing people of what good carpet cleaning is all about and how it can actually save your carpet and save YOU money.

The second reason is that the average consumer of carpet cleaning doesn't understand that MOST of what they hear from carpet cleaning companies is not true - or at least not true in many cases.

So Let's Get Started With Some Of The Most Common Carpet Cleaning Myths.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #1

Carpet Cleaning Causes Your Carpets To Get Dirty Faster

This carpet cleaning myth is absolutely NOT TRUE - as long as your carpets were cleaning properly in the first place.

The only reason carpet cleaning would cause carpets to re-soil faster is if there was too much sticky residue left in your carpet after cleaning.

Good carpet cleaning companies rinse your carpet properly and do NOT leave soil-attracting residue in your carpet. You can check out our amazing cleaning results using the Rotovac360.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #2

Carpet Cleaning Causes Problems With Allergies

Again, this carpet cleaning myth is absolutely not true. In fact, cleaning your carpets can reduce suffering from allergies. Again, the key is that the carpets were cleaned PROPERLY.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #2

Carpet Cleaning Causes Problems With Allergies

Again, this carpet cleaning myth is absolutely not true. In fact, cleaning your carpets can reduce suffering from allergies. Again, the key is that the carpets were cleaned PROPERLY.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #3

Good Carpet Cleaning Is Expensive

First of all it depends on what someone thinks is expensive. But with carpets being one of the most expensive furnishings in your home it just makes sense to take care of them properly.

Taking carpet of your carpets properly includes having them cleaned and, in the end run, carpet cleaning actually saves you money if you care at all about how your carpets look and how long they last at a high appearance level.

Replacing carpet with carpet, or another flooring surface, can be a lot more expensive than having your carpets cleaned on a regular basis.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #4

Cleaning Your Carpets With Water Is A Bad Thing

This carpet cleaning myth is, honestly, absurd. All carpet cleaners use water to clean carpets. Some use more water than others.

But water is needed to flush the carpet of its soil, and sometimes a good amount of water is needed to flush the carpet properly.

What matters is how much water is LEFT In Your Carpet After Cleaning.

A good carpet cleaner should be able to flush your carpet really well, and remove enough soil and water to have your carpets dry in six hours or less.

Carpet Cleaning Myth #5

Your Carpets Do Not Look Dirty So They Do Not Need To Be Cleaned.

This is a carpet cleaning myth we often hear. Most carpets are designed to trap and hold soil - waiting for you to vacuum that soil away.

What most people do not know is that their carpets can hold a lot of soil before any soil actually is seen. This is a good and bad thing.

Good because you don't want soil to show up easily on any flooring surface.

Bad because once the carpets get a large soil load in them - a soil load that can be seen - getting that soil out of the carpet can be quite a chore.

It is much better to not let the soil load become large, so that means having your carpets cleaned BEFORE they look really soiled is very important.

So Those Are The Top Five Carpet Cleaning Myths We Have Heard About

There are many more carpet cleaning myths, and maybe in another article we will go over them. But these five stand out to us because they are the carpet cleaning myths we hear most often.
