The carpet in your home should bring people together. Friday movie night? Saturday morning cartoons? Doing homework during the week? You do them lounging on the carpet in the living room or in your bedroom. The carpet throughout your home should be comfortable, clean, and always looking its best. Day to day, you can vacuum and clean up spills as quickly as possible, but sometimes you need a professional carpet cleaning service to really brighten up your carpet. The bad news is that there’s a lot of misinformation out there about carpet cleaning. The good news is that Steam Master Cleaning in San Antonio is here for you. So what myths should you look out for before scheduling a cleaning?
Steam cleaning will ruin my carpet
The heat associated with steam cleaning can cause some homeowners to worry about that damaging the carpet. However, this actually is extremely beneficial to clean deep into the fibers of the carpet. The steam cleaning method is recommended most by carpet cleaning professionals.
The carpet doesn’t need to be cleaned if it doesn’t look dirty
Depending on the color and style of your carpet, it can hide dirt so the surface won’t look dirty. But when you think about how much use your carpet gets each day, it definitely needs to be cleaned regularly. In fact, when you don’t regularly clean your carpet, whether it’s vacuuming or steam cleaning, it can affect the quality of your carpet, leading it to wear down before it should.
Carpet deodorizers will do enough
Even though using products to keep your carpet smelling fresh will mask any smell, they can actually do more harm than good. Adding powders to your carpet should be vacuumed up after, but it’s nearly impossible to vacuum up all of the powder that was put down. The remaining deodorizer will eventually become dust that will sit in your carpet until a cleaning service comes in.
I own a carpet cleaning machine, I don’t need a professional
This one is easy to believe, but the fact is that professionals are much more capable and have better equipment to clean your carpet. By purchasing, or renting your own machine, you could leave additional water in the carpet which is hard to pull up without powerful equipment. Any remaining water in the carpet could lead to mold and mildew growing.
Professional carpet cleaning can be costly, but when the job is done correctly and thoroughly, it’s well worth the cost. Not only that, but your carpet needs regular cleanings to ensure that it lasts as long as possible. And on top of that, you will keep your home healthier with regular cleanings.
