Busting Carpet Cleaning Myths: Part 1

Believe it or not, not everything you read or see on the internet is true. For example, there are countless misconceptions online about the possible negative effects of carpet cleaning and the necessity to hire professional carpet cleaners on a regular basis.

Waukesha Carpet Cleaning Blog intends to dispel some of those untruths with further examination of the more popular carpet cleaning myths you will find online today. Doing so should instill confidence in the industry and encourage routine professional cleaning to preserve the quality of the carpet in your home.

Myth: Only Clean Your Carpet When it Looks Dirty

False. While it’s natural to assume that if something doesn’t appear dirty, it isn’t dirty, in the case of carpet that is rarely true. Carpet acts as a filter in your home, trapping a variety of allergens, toxins, oils and soils that aren’t always easy to see from the surface. The longer the unseen dirt and contaminants remain in carpet the more it wears down the durability and color of the fibers.

Leaving unseen dirt in your carpet not only harms it but it can also jeopardize the air quality in your home and lead to unwanted consequences related to respiratory conditions for both pets and humans in your home.

We recommend calling a cleaner like Champion Chem-Dry in Brookfield at least once every 12-18 months regardless of how dirty your carpet might appear on the surface.

Myth: Cleaning Carpet Too Much Hurts It

False again. There is no such thing as having your carpet cleaned too often. The more a carpet is cleaned and cared for the longer it will retain its value, color and durability. We recommend routine cleaning on a schedule that fits your family’s budget.

Myth: Why Pay a Professional When I Can Do it Myself?

There is no replacing the equipment and expertise professional carpet cleaners provide. There are carpet cleaner machines available for rent or purchase that do a sufficient job in surface level cleaning and some stain removal, but are not powerful enough to deep clean carpet. Similar to the first myth, your carpet might appear clean on the surface after using a machine, but it is unlikely that the toxins, dirt and contaminants near the pad were completely removed.

These are just a few of the myths you will find about carpet cleaning online. Truthfully, if you have carpet in your home you will want to ignore the myths and hire a professional on a fairly regular basis to ensure your carpet lasts as long as it is supposed.
