Carpet Cleaning Damage

If you’ve ever thought about cleaning the carpet in your home by yourself, you may want to take a few minutes and read this article.

Ideally, in almost all instances, your carpet should be professionally cleaned. However, to save money, sometimes people alternate between cleaning the carpet themselves and using a professional carpet cleaning service. While the do-it-yourself approaches can appear to be less expensive, they are almost never as effective as professional cleaning. Additionally, when you clean your carpet by yourself, it can involve a considerable amount of time and hard work, plus, there’s always the chance of carpet cleaning damage. As we all know, replacing damaged carpet can run you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Why You Should Leave the Carpet Cleaning to the Pros

Three of the most common ways do-it-yourselfers damage carpets are:

Over Wetting – Some homeowners feel they need to really soak their carpets to get them really clean. However, when you over wet carpet, it causes too much water to soak into the bottom of the carpet and the pad. If the backing and pad get wet, it is very difficult to dry them. This situation poses the risk of developing mold and mildew problems.

Over Shampooing – With over shampooing, a homeowner uses either way too much carpet shampoo or they fail to adequately rinse the shampoo and resulting residue from the carpet. This soapy residue can be next to impossible to remove once it dries. Additionally, it acts as a virtual dirt magnet.

Furniture Stains – When furniture comes into contact with wet carpeting it can release the dye from the stain leaving a permanent, unsightly carpet stain. Also, if the feet on your chairs or other furniture are metal, these can rust and damage the carpet as well. Taking shortcuts, many homeowners fail to remove all the furniture from the room that is having the carpet cleaned and/or don’t put the furniture up on protective foam or foil backed cardboard squares to keep the furniture off the carpet until it dries completely.

Still not convinced that you should hire a professional carpet cleaner? Well, then, read on!

A professional carpet cleaner such as A Mug You Can Trust, will clean your carpets for a very reasonable fee and give you a guarantee on the work they do. This East Valley carpet cleaning company will vacuum your carpet paying special attention to the edges and corners of all rooms to be cleaned. Any heavily soiled areas will be spot treated and then the carpets will be pre-conditioned to release dirt from the fibers. Using a truck mounted steam extraction, the carpets will be cleaned, rinsed and dried leaving them residue free. Following the deep steam cleaning, we then spray on a carpet neutralizer deodorizer followed by a rake fluff of the fibers to allow fast drying.
