There are few better feelings than walking into your home on a freshly cleaned carpet. However, it’s very discouraging and depressing to walk into your home when the carpet is full of dirt and stains. Several studies have actually proven that the condition of your carpet actually affects your mood positively or negatively if it is clean or not. Since this can be such an important factor in your home, it’s important to understand all the ins and outs of keeping carpet clean. Below are three of the most common myths people believe about carpet cleaning so you can avoid making those mistakes. If you ever have questions or issues, don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at Chet’s Cleaning in the Grosse Pointe area.
Wait as long as you can to have your carpet cleaned for the first time because it will never look the same again.
In the past, this may have been the case. Years ago, before carpet cleaning technology had improved more, many cleaning methods would use too much water that would be left on the carpet. The water and residue from the cleaning materials would rise to the top of the carpet which would actually attract more dirt and leave the carpet even dirtier than it was before. Fortunately, it’s not that way anymore! The modern hot water extraction methods used by our contractors at Chet’s Cleaning are able to remove the mess in a way that doesn’t leave excess water or residue. So don’t put off getting your carpet cleaned the first time!
I don’t need a professional carpet cleaner. That’s why I bought my own carpet cleaner.
It’s certainly wise to have your own carpet cleaner to deal with minor spills and dirt buildup that will naturally occur over time. However, it won’t be able to replace the quality of a professional cleaning job. The types of carpet cleaners made affordable to consumers don’t have the same cleaning ability that the professional-grade equipment used at Chet’s Cleaning does. Therefore, have your own carpet cleaner to deal with minor issues, but you should still have the professionals come periodically to have the highest level of cleanliness for your carpet.
My carpet looks fine. I don’t need to clean it right now.
A lack of visible dirt or unwanted buildup on your carpet does not necessarily mean that your carpet is clean. In fact, just one square foot of carpet can hold up to one pound of dirt before you’ll even be able to notice it. Since this dirt often gets down so deep in your carpet, it’s recommended that you have your carpet professionally cleaned annually to ensure the best results for your carpet.
