Carpet cleaning- Important information to knowPosted by Sheri Davis on Mar 19, 2012 in Tips, Uncategorized | 0 comments
Most people like knowing they have clean carpets. It makes us breathe a little easier knowing we’ve taken steps to keep our home sanitary and therefore our family’s safe against germs. The problem is that having someone cleaning our Carpets on a regular basis (normally every 6 months) is not only expensive, but they may be creating more damage than good.
The rule of thumb is, if it takes more than 2 hours for your carpets to dry, it’s not good. Between your concrete and padding it’s cool and dark. Add standing water and now you have wet, damp and now mold starting to form. Mold spreads quickly and you’ll never see it.
In addition, some companies use powerful water force to “clean”. This may be good if the majority of that water comes out, but in my inexperience, this is not usually the case. This goes back to the two hour rule. But also brings into play, that dirt and water mixed is MUD. The force of the water pushes the mud, which consists of dirt, grim, dust mites, pollen, bacteria and everything else that is in everyone’s home deeper down into the carpet, past the pad and again back to the concrete. It spreads and now you have a whole community living there. Ever wonder why after two weeks of having your carpets professionally cleaned that spots come back? It’s because the spot never went away, it was just pushed deeper into your carpets. After time, being walked on, the dirt resurfaces.
The best cure for keeping carpets cleaner, Vacuum. Vacuum often. Keeping the dirt off your carpets in the first place helps. When spills happen, spend a few dollars more for a product/s that actually works and it will save you money in the long run. Have on hand the product/s that you’ll need to get the stains before they set.
