3 Carpet Cleaning Myths

Originally posted on 10/10/2017

Someone's feet stand in front of sidewalk chalk that points in two different directions, one for myth and the other fact. There are many myths about carpet cleaning that we can clear up.New carpets can infuse life and style into any home. Once you have them installed though, you might wonder if any of the carpet cleaning stories you have heard are true. After all, you want to protect your investment by giving your carpets the maintenance they need to last a long time while still looking great. Below, three common carpet cleaning myths are debunked. 

1. Vacuuming too much can damage carpet

Like many carpet cleaning myths, there is a kernel of truth to this thought process but it doesn't tell the entire story. Carpet that is installed correctly is designed to withstand normal vacuuming using modern vacuum cleaners. However, there could be some machines on the market that can be too powerful to be used every day. For most households, vacuuming once a week is sufficient though high-traffic areas could require more frequent cleaning. 

2. Carpet cleaning makes carpets get dirty more quickly

This myth originated because there are some carpet cleaning methods that can leave dirt and a sticky residue behind. If this is the result after a carpet has been cleaned though, it is because the methods used were incorrect. The right carpet cleaning company ensures that all the cleaning agents they used are rinsed thoroughly out of your carpet. This means there is no residue or dirt left behind. 

3. Steam cleaning causes mold

This is another carpet cleaning myth whose origins can be traced back to improper methods. Many cleaning methods result in your carpets being wet for a short amount of time. When done the right way, though, your carpets won't be soaking wet. Instead, a reputable carpet cleaning company will ensure that the excess moisture is removed from your carpet before they leave your home. 

Trust a Carpet Cleaning Company with Experience

The main takeaway from these myths is to do business only with a reputable company such as Greener Method. If you're looking for reliable carpet cleaners, then look no further. Contact the team at Greener Method today, we are the go-to carpet and upholstery cleaning company!
