Carpet Cleaning Myths

Carpets have been around for quite some time now and it seems that everyone has different carpet cleaning methods and beliefs. New methods of professional carpet cleaning have given rise to a lot of myths related to carpet cleaning which dissuade people from getting and keeping their carpets clean. A dirty carpet is not just full of dust and grime; it is a breeding ground for germs and diseases. In order to keep your family healthy and your home clean, it is necessary to clean your carpet regularly. Here are some myths that you may have heard about cleaning your carpet:

You Should Not Vacuum Carpets Too Much

When we see small balls of fluff getting sucked into the vacuum cleaner every time we vacuum, we think that we are losing portions of our carpet. However, research has proved that vacuuming does not really destroy your carpet or make it thin and you can easily vacuum a carpet three to four times a week without losing it for a large number of years. Considering that an average carpet is vacuumed only three to four times a month, it is a great idea to increase the frequency of your vacuuming.

Professional Carpet Cleaning Shrinks Carpets

Gone are the days when carpets were made out of shrinkable natural materials like pure wool and silk on a jute base. The majority of carpets today are made out of nylon tied on a synthetic base. Since almost all of us know that synthetics do not shrink even in hot water, there is no chance of your carpet shrinking or losing color due to steam cleaning.

Cleaning A Carpet Makes It Get Dirtier Fast

This actually happens to a lot of us. We notice that a carpet’s propensity for becoming dirty increases exponentially the moment it gets cleaned. Unfortunately this is not due to cleaning but because of ‘dirty’ cleaning. If your carpet does not get cleaned properly and remains of cleaning chemicals are left in it, then it is bound to attract more dust and grime than it was doing earlier.

Hiring a professional cleaning team such as Steam Vac Carpet Cleaner ensures that this does not happen. We have years of experience cleaning carpets and removing stains quickly and efficiently so you don’t have to worry about the hassle.
