Everyone knows those old wives tales that have been passed through the grapevine for as long as we can remember. Well sometimes there is truth to them and sometimes it’s just a big, fat lie. Well, some of those old wives tales revolve around cleaning and there are few misconceptions aka myths about carpet cleaning circulating the internet these days that we would like to clear up.
Myth #1: Cleaning Will Only Shrink My Carpet
If you’re using a professional carpet cleaner, which we hope you are; they should know that unless they leave your carpet extremely wet, your carpet should not shrink. If you find your carpet is wet when the cleaner leaves, call them back immediately to have them come back out and correct their error.
Myth #2: If Your Carpet is New, You Don’t Have to Clean it For Years to Come
Inside Homes Cleaning and More recommends cleaning your carpet every 12 months even if it’s new. Most dirt stays hidden in your carpet and eventually, will act as an abrasive which will wear your carpet out early.
If you have a warranty on your brand new carpet you will want to pay close attention to the warranty details. Leading manufacturers, like Shaw Industries, will most likely include that your carpets will need to be professionally cleaned anywhere between 6-24 months in order for your specific warranty to be honored. For specifics on Shaw warranties visit their website
Myth #3: I Only Need to Clean the Carpet If It Has Been Stained
As we have mentioned above, dirt build up in your carpet is not always noticeable so It’s smart to have your carpet cleaned at least once a year by a professional—especially if you have small children and pets in the house.
Myth #4: I Have My Own Machine At Home
Home machines don’t have the suction power like professional machines so you may loosen the stain, but it may still be there with your home machine. Its best to have the professionals at Inside Homes Cleaning and More take a look at your carpet for an estimate.
Myth #5: I’ll just Use the Cheapest Cleaner Out There
“Good services don’t come cheap; cheap services don’t come good” is the age-old saying, and it still rings true to this day. Bad carpet cleaning could actually leave your carpet worse off than before.
Myth #6: Cleaning Carpeting Too Often Can Ruin It
A dirty carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps — by itself, it’s not enough.
Myth # 7: The Only Reason to Clean Carpets is to Get Out the Dirt
Outside air contains pollen’s, fungus, bacteria, among many other pollutants. You carry these things home with you in your hair and on your clothing. It shouldn’t surprise you that most of these things will end up on your carpet.
Myth #8: Steam Cleaning Your Carpeting Will Cause Mold
Once again, if you’re dealing with a professional cleaner and he or she is steam cleaning your carpet, there is no reason for water to go behind the backing of the carpet or the pad. If the cleaner leaves your carpet extremely wet, mold can grow but a professional cleaner would know better than to leave your carpet wet.
Myth #9: Carpets Will Be Left Wet for Days
The carpet may be damp for a couple hours after the cleaning but in no way will it be wet for days.
Myth #10: Dry Cleaning Does a Better Job Than Steam Cleaning
Steam cleaning is usually the recommended cleaning method used by most carpet manufacturers because it is the most proven and effective way to clean carpet. The dry cleaning method still uses water, but it only penetrates and cleans the top surface of the carpet. Check with your carpet manufacturer for the cleaning method or ask your local carpet cleaning professional.

Very Well Crafted! You have made this blog very interesting to read the myths of carpet cleaning and would like to see more interesting blogs from you next time
Thanks for taking the time to clear up some of these myths! I can’t tell you the amount of times that people have repeated myth #8 to me, and I’ll admit it worried me for a while. But when I actually hired a carpet cleaner, I realized that I really had nothing to worry about. I’m assuming that’s the case with all of these other myths as well – thanks again for sharing!
Set the record straight! Thanks so much for sharing this. I know many people hesitate to clean their carpets professionally and should read this. This information should solve a lot of problems and set the record straight
Great tips, especially tip #4! A lot of our carpet cleaning customers wonder why they can’t get their carpets as clean as we do and their home machines just don’t have the power that our commercial cleaning machines do.
This is a great website. I actually own a carpet cleaning business in the Detroit Michigan area. Not sure how I found your site but I will definitely send customers to your site if they have any questions. Kind of a third party testimonial if they do not believe the answers that I give them. Thanks again for the great info!
Thanks for sharing. If your carpet cleaner is leaving your carpets super wet, they are not using the latest in carpet cleaning technology. We do not even bring our industrial strength dryers to our jobs anymore and most carpets are dry within an hour of us cleaning. Most of the newer carpet cleaning equipment use very little water. Nonetheless….great article!
I’ve been told that it is not actually steam cleaning but instead it should be called Hot Water Extraction. Would that be an accurate assessment. I do know of only one guy in my city that still does lite chemical shampooing. I guess that would be considered old school. He swears by it. You can find his site below .
He also does a lot of carpet tinting. Do you know of many carpet cleaning companies that still do this.?
I have been checking out a few of your article stories and I must say pretty clever stuff. I will deifintely bookmark your blog. Thank you very much.
Spot cleaning from time to time isn’t too bad, but it definitely helps to have a professional service you can call for emergencies or serious stains. There’s just something really nice about being able to leave your home and come back to see that a miracle has been worked on your carpet. Thanks for sharing!
Wow, awesome article! A lot of money could be saved by using a professional carpet cleaner. #3 is an excuse I hear a lot. People sometimes just don’t think to get there carpets cleaned unless there is something there to remind them that it needs to be cleaned. Thanks for sharing
Thank you for putting some of these myths to bed ! I think one of the most commonly asked questions i get is Myth #2 where people think they don’t have to have a new carpet cleaned. Its crazy what some people believe.
Robert, It’s not crazy for people to believe any of these or they wouldn’t be myths. Would you clean out a brand new car the day you bought it?
You have some well researched material here. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard myth #2 & #5. People are so concerned about their pocket books they don’t realize how maintaining your carpet is really dependent on the amount of traffic it sees. So even once or twice a year my not be enough. And if your only concern is to find the “cheapest” service out there, that is exactly what you’ll get, cheap not quality.
Thanks for your hard work!
Agree with you Robert about Myth #2. It drives me crazy people spend thousands of dollars on new carpet and neglect it for several years by trying to save a few bucks. Comprehensive article guys and thanks for sharing!
I enjoyed reading your article! It was a great, comprehensive list. I especially believe that people need to hear #7 – most people do not realize all of the nastiness that comes with having a carpet in your home! It is SO important to have it professionally cleaned at least once a year, like you mentioned! Thanks for sharing!
This is a great article, I wish every one of our customers could read this article. Myth #4 & #5 are super common for us. We repeatedly get customers who rent those “carpet cleaning machines” from the grocery store that end up never working out. Either their carpets get super soapy or extremely wet. Its like that old saying, you get what you pay for…
It still amazes me some of the ridiculous tips, secrets and home remedies people believe for stain removal and carpet cleaning – If it’s out of your depth, call a professional
Myth 2 & 4 are my biggest pet peeves. I can’t believe people don’t keep good care of their stuff!
That was a great article, I run a carpet cleaning company in UK, precisely in Chelsea, in West London and I totally agree with what was said. I couldn’t be said in a better way.
Keep it up!
Thanks for sharing! I hear about Myth #3 the most, which is completely false. Most of my customers don’t realize how much dirt and debris has been accumulated until they see the waste that gets tossed. A professional carpet cleaning will also remove impurities, bacteria and other harsh chemicals found in the air you breathe every day. Many times people are so used to their own scents that they don’t even realize that their home has a slight odor to it. Just like anything else, whether its your carpet, or your car, continual maintenance helps with the longevity of the product. Thanks!
John, I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s unbelievable how much dirt and debris is sitting in people’s carpets. Professional carpet cleaning shouldn’t be a luxury… It should be a necessity.
This is a great article. After having just hardwood for a while you do realize just how much dirt and debris accumulates daily and how important having your carpet cleaned regularly is! I will definitely check back for more tips. Thanks
Concerning the wet carpet issues, whenever i purchase my carpets to be cleaned they have been wet for up to a day at most. What is the best way to dry them out quicker? By the way great article
This article is spot on. When it comes to carpet cleaning, there is no better way than to have a professional carpet cleaner do it. Steam cleaning is by far the best method and should dry quickly if properly done. Keep up the good work spreading the word.
Love the information provided in this article. I especially like Myth #5. So often it feels like hitting your head against a brick wall when trying to educate clients on the proper process of carpet cleaning. They often call price shopping – which I encourage, however, they are never comparing apples to apples. The key again is educating them between a professional carpet cleaning service as opposed to a fly by night operation.

Excellent info! You guys are like Myth Busters for the carpet world. I own a carpet cleaning business so I really appreciated these points. I think my favorite was myth #3 – If you wait to get your carpet cleaned until it’s stained, your carpet isn’t going to last very long!
Great souse of information, thanks for sharing
Thanks for sharing! Myth #3 come up the most here in Wisconsin; which is completely false. Most of my customers don’t realize how much dirt and debris has been accumulated until they see our buckets of filth. I make a point sometimes to show my customers what we remove from their carpets….They are usually flabbergasted!
Thanks for taking the time to clear up some of these myths! I can’t tell you a number of times that people have repeated myths to me, and I’ll admit it worried me for a while. But when I actually hired a carpet cleaner, I realized that I really had nothing to worry about. Thank you so much! carpetcleaningreview.com
Thanks so much for writing this article! One of the biggest myths that I always hear from my customers is that cleaning shrinks the carpet. You touched on this perfectly by saying that the carpet only shrinks if the carpet is left wet after cleaning. I try to explain this to all my customers on the phone, as this is one of the reasons why they are hesitant to get there carpets cleaned. Now, I can send them to this article to help ease their mind. We are a new carpet cleaning company and you can check out what we do at:
Keep up the great work and content!
Thanks for sharing
Thank you so much for sharing This post. It’s great full blog I have really enjoyed keeping up with you on this blog. http://bit.ly/2nBSD2P
Great article on carpet cleaning myths. Everyone thinks you don’t have to clean unless their is a stain. The simple fact of mites and dust build up when you don’t clean your carpet is something people tend to not think about. Thanks again for the great article.
Very nice subject and wonderful idea
View this topic
I like your point that carpet cleaning will help you preserve your carpet warranty and that steam cleaning is usually recommended. I just bought a new home. The carpet is nice and new, so I want to make sure the warranty lasts by keeping it clean.
Overall I was impressed with the job they did cleaning my carpets and removing urine stains from my pets. The carpets looked and smelled brand new and I was really impressed by their professional, speedy and amazing service. I will definitely use this company again. Thank You
Thank you for making everything so clear for us! I think moisture was the main concern for most people people aside from thinking it was going to leave a bad smell. I do prefer the hot water extraction method since it provides a deeper clean. What are your thoughts?
I came across this article as I was doing research to further educate myself in this industry as we have just recently started our own carpet cleaning company.
I liked how this article goes over all the myths that we all stand by so faithfully. The myth I am glad you talked about is #2 . It is great for everyone to know that just because they have new carpets doesn’t mean they don’t need to get them cleaned often. I believe that is one of the biggest misunderstood things about carpet cleaning so I am glad you cleared that up.
You did a great job at carefully explaining the ins and outs of carpet cleaning and clearing up the myths.
Thank you so much!
Myth #9: Carpets will be left wet for days is one I deal with every day. With the technology used today our carpets are dry within 12 hours!
Wow, awesome article! A lot of money could be saved by using a professional carpet cleaner. #3 is an excuse that we hear a lot. People sometimes just don’t think to get there carpets cleaned unless there is something there to remind them that it needs to be cleaned. Thanks for sharing…and if you don’t mind, here is a shameless plug for our carpet cleaning business in Wisconisn. Check us out: http://www.appletoncarpetclean.com/
This is so great! I often hear a combination of 4 & 5 where customers rent a steam cleaning machine from the grocery store and are upset when the results don’t end up well. I spend a lot of time correcting incorrect carpet cleaning rumors. It’s so frustrating!
Thanks! We appreciate you commenting and agree sometimes it’s frustrating with how easy for a customer to be misinformed with all of the products out there that claim to do the same job.
Thanks for the great blog! Its easy to overlook the value of having our carpets professionally cleaned.
Been a Professional Carpet Cleaner in this industry, I would say this article is a real eye opener regarding the myth everyone has about the carpet.
Really appreciate you for taking the time to educate on this. Thanks a ton.
I want to make sure that I get my carpet cleaned. I didn’t realize that there were so many things I could do incorrectly! Maybe it would be a good idea for me to get a professional to handle it for me instead.
Very well written article with complete description on best tips of Carpet Cleaning Myths. This well written article is very helpful . Thanks for sharing this information.We also offering carpet cleaning serviceshttp://dustqueen.com/edmonton-carpet-cleaning/
I want to clean my sofa and carpet from some one, that know more knowledge about cleaning service and also make a trust-able person. When I read your blog that is all about carpet cleaning service, it is the best blog because here I get many contacts that is service provider of carpet cleaning. Please publish some more post on it. Well thanks for your blog.
Thanks for all the amazing advice about the myths of carpet cleaning. My husband agrees that our carpets need to be cleaned, but wants to go with the cheapest option. I love that you mentioned that bad carpet cleaning can actually damage the carpet and some of the cheaper companies don’t have the higher end equipment. Hopefully, that will get him on board and we can find a company to help us out.
These are very helpful tips that will absolutely make a difference for anyone preparing for professional carpet cleaning. It is good to see a carpet cleaning company caring about their customers beyond the sale, much respect. One thing I would add is preventative carpet care. Making wise choices such as keeping dirty shoes off the carpet will prevent much of the wear and discoloration that too often leaves customers feeling frustrated with their carpet. Simple house rules to extend the life of your carpet will only further the great work that a professional carpet cleaner does. Thanks for sharing such valuable tips!
I love these tips. I have my carpets cleaned every other month. I love the idea that you treat my carpets like it’s your mother’s house. My mom would definitely appreciate that!. I really don’t know how many things can go wrong with carpet cleaning until I read this article.
I can’t believe that people think that carpet cleaning would shrink there carpets. But then you mentioned that if they were very wet they could, I never knew that , but at least when ever I get a carpet cleaning service in the carpets aren’t that wet after.
Wonderful article, thanks for swing this together! this can be clearly one nice post. Thanks for the dear info and insights you have got therefore provided here..I have ne’er even detected of those tools before! It looks like i would like to urge myself a carpet rake. Your carpet appearance therefore amazing! With 3 youngsters, and 2 dogs, you’ll be able tosolely imagine however stained my carpets ar. i’d like to pay a day doing this, in order that my carpets may look that amazing!
Nice Information! I personally really appreciate your article. This is a great website. I will make sure that I stop back again!
I’ve just bought a new house and i want to use carpet in my home so it’s really good to read this. Appreaciate it
I like your point that cover cleaning will enable you to save your cover guarantee and that steam cleaning is generally prescribed. I just purchased another home. The cover is decent and new, so I need to ensure the guarantee endures by keeping it clean.
Much obliged to you for making everything so clear for us!
First of all Thanks for this nice article.we always suggest our clients for steam cleaning.because this is the best cleaning method.Sometimes,carpet can add some extra look to your house or office.So,We must concern about it.
Great article on Carpet Cleaning
I’m glad I found this post. I just started a local cleaning service and have been running into a wall with a few potential customers who believe several of these myths. Now I have a proper answer to give them when they feel they don’t need to get their carpets cleaned. Great info!!
We just started a new carpet cleaning business in Escondido, CA and I’m definitely thinking about sending a carpet cleaning myths email to some of our customers because they all have similar concerns regarding many of these myths… especially 3, 5, and 7!
Anyway, really appreciate your time writing this article. Best of luck.
Nice Post!! I came across your blog, and I found information about carpet cleaning. It’s fascinating and beneficial information for us. Thanks for sharing this information.
A great list of myths you have there. I do appreciate your post. Thanks
Thanks for clarifying these cleaning myths! Because of fear brought by these beliefs, sometimes it is convenient to rely on professional carpet cleaners to ensure that no carpet damage will happen.
I totally agree that carpet cleaning is not just for the purpose of removing visible dirt. Its maintenance is a critical health maintenance routine.
This myth about cleaning the carpet just for dirt is really a thing. Many allergies will start to affect your feet if you never clean it properly. Boils can worsen your conditions. A house owner with pets must consider these things.
I always thought it would be wet for days! Thanks for debunking that for me. Now, I won’t feel bad getting my carpet cleaned before the party this weekend.
I didn’t know that if you leave your carpet wet after cleaning, mold can grow. My mom wants to have our house spotlessly clean because home inspection will be coming over this weekend. My dad suggested hiring cleaning services for our carpet and shared this article with her.
Well, I tried your way of cleaning spots out of carpets and it worked like a charm, so I guess I’ll have to try this, too!!
Wow. I own and sell area rugs and the amount of comments I have seen on the post is refreshing. Most people don’t think enough about the care and cleaning of their carpets. I wish more of them did.
Nice article it is always best to hire a qualified carpet cleaning professional.
My mom wants our home to be spotlessly clean because our relatives will be coming over this weekend. It was discussed here that carpet cleaning should be done regularly and not only when it’s been stained because dirt build up in the carpet is not always visible. Moreover, it’s advisable to hire professionals for carpet cleaning services.
Magnificent website. Steam cleaning is also known as deep cleaning. That’s because it is the only carpet cleaning method known to remove at least 97 percent of dirt and bacteria from carpeting. It is also the only method that reaches all the way down to the lowest layer, or “pile”, of your carpeting to clean it thoroughly.
I think my carpets are due for a cleaning, but I have some concerns about carpet cleaning. I’ve always heard that having your carpets cleaned could shrink them, and I don’t want to have to deal with that. I’m glad this article debunked that myth for me, as long as the carpet is not left extremely wet.
Great information shared. Keep it up. Looking forward to more great information.
Previously I felt that my carpets shrunk after each carpet cleaning session. Although, after reading this article, it is quite obvious that wet carpets will surely result in such dilemma.
You’ve touched on a lot of good stuff in this article. Most people think carpet cleaning is just about getting rid of dirt. Most don’t realize there are many nasty pollutants that can hide in their carpets and actually decrease the quality of air in a home.
Carpet cleaning is not done once a year but it should be regularly to avoid dirt from accumulating the surface of the carpet. Thanks for this one. I learned a lot of great stuff from this one.
Great blog really very helpful Thanks for sharing information about carpet cleaning
I didn’t know that there can be fungus and bacteria and things like that in outside air that can get into your carpet. That would make sense to get your carpet cleaned if you can’t get those things out of the carpet by yourself. I wouldn’t want to have things growing in my carpet that could be harmful.
Excellent article, totally agree with you! The use of professional cleaning services has only positive sides. First, it saves your time, which you do not have to spend on cleaning the whole house. Carpet cleaning is only a small part of a complete house cleaning. Professionals also recommend cleaning clothes, mattresses, air conditioning systems, and more from time to time. Secondly, professional cleaning companies always use high-quality cleaning products and expensive equipment that will in no way impair your carpet or furniture. Thirdly, if you assume that you are allergic and cannot use ordinary cleaning products, professional companies will take care of you and find an individual approach to each client. I am a housewife from North Miami, Florida, and for the past few years, I have been using a proven professional cleaning company – North Miami Beach Carpet Cleaning. I can confidently recommend it to the rest of the city of Miami and its environs.
Spot on!… pun intended! lol! Professional cleaning does have so many benefits. We are happy to hear you found a local company that you trust. Thanks for commenting on our blog!
Hey! Myth 2 is so relatable. I got a beige carpet installed in my bedroom and didn’t get it professionally cleaned it for 2 years thinking that it’s new and doesn’t need thorough cleaning. And it literally turned brown over the time.
Very informative post! #3 is the one we hear all the time from our customers… if it’s not stained then why cleaning it?
We then usually perform a deep clean of a small area of the carpet and show them the amount of dirt that comes out of it..
after that the usually get all the carpets cleaned!
Same here, David! We have so many before and after images that show the results from cleaning a small section. Customers are always surprised at how dirty their floors were.
I didn’t realize that dirt can wear out your carpets faster. I bought a white shag rug for my living room a little over six months ago. It still looks nice, but I think I will have it cleaned soon to extend its longevity.
Yes, absolutely. Routinely cleaning your carpets will absolutely extend their time of use.
Wonderful information, thanks a lot for sharing the kind of information. Your website gives the best and the most interesting information!
Regular interior cleaning is better for health whenever driving the car. A lot of dust and germ build up is not good for you.
Valuable information that every homeowner and renter should know! I definitely resonated with #7 – carpet can also act as a “filter” for your home to trap pollen, fungus, bacteria, and other pollutants. When carpet fills up with these pollutants, the carpet loses it’s ability to filter impurities out of the air. Neglecting the cleaning of your carpet can have negative health effects from too many pollutants being trapped in carpet, in turn keeping them in the air as well. Excellent info, thanks a bunch!
Thanks for sharing. And if you are in need of any Car Locksmith Service. Call us.
This is great! Thank you for taking the time to create such a helpful resource. And if are in need of any Roofing Repairs. Call us.
Thanks, these were really needed tips. I didn’t know few of these facts and I am sure there are many people who are unaware of this too. It will help them understanding the perfect way of cleaning carpet.
Thanks for this article! We always make sure no water is left is left inside the carpet because it will create mold eventually and you do not want that.These are great tips too.
We’ve seen customers over time save thousands of dollars on new carpets, rugs or floors by just keeping their floors regularly maintained and cleaned every now and then. This is a helpful article! Thanks so much for the read.
This is really awesome work. Thank you for unveiling the truth covered by these myths. This is a helpful piece of information for house cleaners, as well as, carpet cleaners.
Over time, everything from sunlight to wine can distract from a rug’s original appeal, but it’s almost never impossible to return it to its former glory. Regular maintenance and firm house rules, such as never walking on a rug with shoes or drinking near it, can go a long way in extending the life of an area rug or carpet.
I do believe this is an excellent blog. You can also visit my blog in related to this post https://carpetcleaningorleans.com/
Great information about “Carpet Cleaning Myths”. Nice content about the carpet cleaning process and how it will work.
Great blog and information here. As some in the business I always appreciate those trying to educate and inform.
Wow this is informational. thanks alot for the help
Superbly written article, if only all bloggers offered the same content as you, the internet would be a far better place. You can also visit my blog in related to this post https://carpetcleaningorleans.com/
Thanks for telling me that vacuuming my carpet flooring might not be enough. I try to vacuum at least once a week because of my pets who shed their fur a lot, but I guess it’s not sufficient enough to keep my floor clean. It might be better to hire cleaning professionals who can do a better job of maintaining my floor.
If you vacuum too often, you’ll wear out the carpet faster. In the past, carpets were not manufactured to be as durable as they are now. Steam cleaning carpets leads to mildew growth. Baking soda is an effective carpet cleaner. Store brand carpet cleaners are fine to use on carpet stains.
Thanks for the read! I like how you went from old wives tales to modern day myths! You can never get your carpet clean too often! thanks again!
It’s good to know that carpets, even new ones, should be cleaned every year since dirt can be abrasive and damaging. There is a bit of a dirty path on my living room carpet in front of the couch. I will have it cleaned as soon as I can and keep in mind to continue to do so in the future,
Hi Rick. This is a really good article about Carpet Cleaning, I will remember it all!
By keeping your carpet consistently maintained and having it professionally cleaned annually, you can increase the appearance and longevity of your carpet while contributing to a healthier environment.
Well written articles like yours renew my faith in today’s writers. You’ve written information I can finally agree on and use. Thank you for sharing.
Great set of carpet cleaning myths! I especially like how this article highlights the shortfall of “home” machines. Homeowners should work in periodic routine professional carpet care into their budget and schedules.
I had no idea that scrubbing my carpet would make the stain worse. I’ll be sure now to only dab up the stains now. I also appreciated your tips with using dish soap to help with oil based stains. I feel that my carpets will look so much nicer with me knowing these tips. Thank you!
Great article! A lot of good information shared. Thank you!
I’m glad you explained that carpets aren’t going to be wet for days after they are cleaned. My wife and I would like to have the carpets in our home professionally cleaned. It might be a good idea for us to find an outdoor activity to do while we wait for the carpets to dry out.
Thank you so much for this! This has helped me a lot.
It’s fantastic that you point out that If you’re using a professional carpet cleaner, which we hope you are, they should know that unless they leave your carpet extremely wet, your carpet should not shrink. We have the same problem with the carpet in our bedroom it is full of stain and dust. I will find the best carpet cleaning service in town to fix my carpet problems.
Thank you for sharing such an informative article. Most people think carpet cleaning is just about getting rid of dirt. Most don’t realize there are many nasty pollutants that can hide in their carpets and actually decrease the quality of air in a home.
If your household is prone to spills or accidents that are difficult to clean, a small cleaner may be a worthwhile purchase to have on hand. However, for more general cleaning of your entire carpet surface, it’s highly recommended to have a professional come to do it.
This has helped me a lot.
I love the creativity and uniqueness of your article. Is there any chance I can get some more information on how to clean my carpets?
I am interested in knowing if these cleaning agents are safe for pets or children, as well what kind would be best (natural products?) at least one day before we need them due date is Sunday.
Phew! It was such a relief to find out that no mold will grow after we get our carpet steam cleaned since it’ll be properly handled by professionals. The rug in my living room has got to be refurbished before my in-laws pay a visit next weekend. Calling the right company is certainly something I should do at an instant to get the job done.
Thank you for explaining that you should get your carpet cleaned at least once a year. I always thought it was only needed if it was stained. I’ll be sure to remember this advice so we can keep our new carpet looking great.
Thanks for mentioning that dirt buildup in your carpet isn’t always noticeable. I’d like to hire a professional to clean my carpets this week. I have two dogs, so I know there’s a lot of fur and dirt in there.
Great job! These myths really exists. Cleaning new carpets after a long time is also one of the great myth. But cleaning carpets and rugs from the professionals is the best solution for your home.
It is important to have your carpets cleaned regularly in order to prevent buildup of dirt and debris. This article offers great tips on carpet cleaning and maintenance. Thanks for sharing!
