Carpet Cleaning MisconceptionsLet’s face it a good carpet doesn’t come cheap. Therefore if you really want it to last it needs to be regularly and professionally cleaned. That said many people fail to do this because they fall prey to the influx of carpet cleaning misconceptions. With this in mind, we bring you some of the truths behind these misconceptions

My carpet doesn’t need professional cleaning

No matter how careful you are with your carpet, dirt and grime will settle. As time goes by it will get pushed deeper and deeper into your carpet fibres. When this happens no amount of normal vacuuming is going to eradicate it. What’s more, as you walk on the carpet the tiny dirt particles compress together and act like sandpaper as they start to rub against the carpet fibres. This causes them to break down. Professional carpet cleaners have the right equipment and the expertise to lift all the dirt you can see and the bacteria you can’t, leaving you with a carpet that really is deep down clean.

My carpet never looked the same after it was last cleaned

Generally speaking carpets differ greatly depending upon the fabric and the weave. This means that what works for one carpet might not be perfect for another. If you’re carpet hasn’t looked the same since it was last cleaned then there’s a good chance that it wasn’t cleaned properly. At Carpet Cleaning Kings all our technicians are experts in their own right. As such they’ll assess your carpet and apply the right method bringing out the very best in your carpet every time.

Regular vacuuming is just as good

As already stated, regular vacuuming is a great way to keep the surface of your carpet clean, but it’s worse than useless at getting your carpet deep down clean. Over time you will notice a deterioration in your carpet as the dirt and dust particles get compacted deeper into your carpet fibres. Better still and depending upon use is a regular professional clean. This in conjunction with regular vacuuming is known to work best.

Home cleaning works just as well

It’s just as easy and definitely cheaper to go and rent a steam cleaner and do it yourself. The problem is that many people attempt to clean their carpet with little or no knowledge of the pitfalls of doing so. For example if you apply too much water to your carpet it’s likely not to dry. As a result it becomes the perfect breeding ground for spores and mould which if left can ruin not only your carpet but eventually your home. On the contrary, most professional carpet cleaning companies use tried and tested equipment which releases the right amount of water needed and powerful vacuums then suck up the vast majority of the water along with the debris leaving it virtually dry within 2-4 hours.

Dry cleaning eliminates the need for water and is therefore better

There are various methods of carpet cleaning out there and one of those is dry cleaning. While dry cleaning does indeed negate the need for water and therefore eradicates the problem of mould it doesn’t give you that deep down clean like hot water extraction does. In fact more often than not when your carpet has been dry cleaned it may appear clean, but dirt usually appears quicker often in a short space of time.
