Four Expensive Carpet Cleaning Misconceptions

1. You should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpets

This is not true. Dirt is an abrasive, just like sandpaper. Every time you step on the carpet you grind dirt into your fibres. This cuts your carpet, just as if you had used a knife causing it to wear out faster. A dirty carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. Regular vacuuming is important but it can’t remove any tacky or embedded dirt. The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned, the more damage you do to your carpet, and the faster it will wear out.

2. Removing dirt is the only reason to get your carpets cleaned.

Although improving and maintaining the appearance of your carpets and upholstery is the main reason why most people have them cleaned, there are other important factors to consider. Environmental pollutants can build up in fabrics at an alarming rate, especially in carpets. The range of contaminants can be vast including; lawn fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, cooking vapors, tobacco smoke, food crumbs, beverage spills, hair, dead skin cells, pollen and insect remains to name a few all of which provide a food source for harmfull micro-orgainisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, dust mites and mold. If you or your family suffer from allergies, asthmas, emphysema or other breathing problems another reason to clean your carpets is to remove these contaminants.

3. Having equipment is all a company needs to clean your carpets properly.

Equipment such as hot water cleaners are owned by many carpet cleaning companies but most of the employees don’t know how to use such machines correctly. It’s similar when someone purchases the latest technology in the market but doesn’t know how to use it. Carpet cleaning companies invest in buying the latest equipment but cannot guarantee that all of their employees will be able to use it correctly. That is why, it is important to pick your carpet cleaning provider carefully.

Carpet Cleaning technicians at Chem-Dry undergo an intensive training program called Chem-College. All our carpet technicians must earn a certificate after study, experience and successful completion of a formal written examination. The technicians who successfully complete Chem-College are all degree holders in carpet cleaning.

4. All carpet cleaning methods are equally as good as one another.
