The short answer some can yes. Carpet cleaning chemicals certainly have the potential to damage your carpet—either because they are the wrong chemical for the type of carpet or stain, because residue is left behind or because optical brighteners are used damaging the carpet over time. That’s why making sure you use the right carpet cleaning chemicals is so important (more on this below).

Facts You Need to Know About Carpet Cleaning Chemicals

Connsider these things in mind when selecting a commercial or residential carpet cleaning solution or service provider in Parker Co: 

 Not all carpet cleaning chemicals are created the same.

The misconception is that all carpet-cleaning chemicals—which number in the thousands—perform similarly. They do not. Some chemicals will actually have higher PH and do more damage than good when they are not completely extracted.

Sometimes, there is some chemical left in the carpet. That’s why you must know what chemicals are being used on your carpet. 

 More chemicals doesn’t necessarily mean “cleaner”

It’s east to use more, not less. More is always better right? No more often than not.

Using too much of the wrong carpet-cleaning chemical with high ph can damage your carpet investment over time—especially if it contains optical brighteners or has a high alkaline or acidity pH. 

 Untested carpet cleaning chemicals can lead to undesirable results

A properly designed crystallizing chemicals can be used extremely well (DPM’s proprietary carpet cleaning chemistries fall into this category). The concerns is that too many crystallizing chemicals have been process thru the market without proper testing and labeling.
