Debunking Common Carpet Cleaning Myths

Contact with +Caroline Harold


Maintaining our carpets clean and looking good is not an easy task. Their job as floor coverings makes them one of the most unhealthy and dirty places around your home. Some of the most common stuff found in carpets are bits of soil, dead skin cells, food crumbs, pet dander, and many more coming from thousands of different sources. Knowing what lies beneath your feet, you want it cleaned immediately, right? But there still linger some common myths about carpet cleaning which are not helping at all.

Let’s start with a statement that can make you laugh. Some people think that after a carpet gets cleaned, it will get dirty again much faster. This misconception is stems from past carpet cleaning methods. In the past foam based cleaning solutions were used. They left excess residue which in fact attracted much more dirt and soil after the cleaning process was over. Today, professional carpet cleaning companies in London use low residue cleaning solutions instead.

Next widely shared misconception is the efficacy of DIY adventures. Many people think that simply hiring carpet cleaning equipment from their local hardware store will to the job. Could not be further from the truth. First, most people will lack the experience and training a carpet cleaning professional in Mayfair will do. Second, most hired tools are far inferior to the professional equipment used by cleaning companies. You might be left with soaking carpet that will start growing mold and mildew if not dried properly.

Then it comes the ludicrous statement that carpets have to be cleaned only hen they look dirty. Well, what one can say in this situation? Simply, you have to cleaned regularly, if you want to have it for longer. Besides, you do not want to live with all that bacteria and germs crawling under your feet?
