Can You Clean Your Carpets Too Much: Highlands Ranch CO
Sometimes customers tell me that their carpet salesman (or a friend) told them not to clean their carpeting until you absolutely have to. "Once you clean your carpeting, it will get dirty faster," they say. This is absolute non-sense. First of all a carpet salesman doesnt know a thing about carpet cleaning, and if he had any knowledge about carpet warantees he or she would tell you that you need to have your carpets annually cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner to keep up with your manufactures warrentee. The fact is once youve allowed to let the dirt build up to a point that its visably showing your ta risk for the carpet to have suffered wear and pernament oxidation.
The truth is - Prior to the invention of steam cleaning carpets were generally shampooed only and since there was no rinsing of the carpet during this process; dirt would cling to the residue left behind in the carpet. So there was some merit to the myth up until they perfected dry foam shampoo which then significantly reduced the residue problem. Their are also different cleaning procedues that can cause this problem Steam Cleaning is the most effecient way of rinsing your carpets properly.
Even though rinsing is part of the cleaning process there are some inexpensive cleaning agents on the market that (when improperly used) can leave a sticky residue in the carpet after cleaning. However most of these cleaning agents are associated with rental machines. When you hire a professional carpet cleaning company like TLC Carpet Care they will know how to properly rinse to assure all cleaning agents have been removed. A product such as Interlinks Supllys Fab Set will not only do just that but will also leave the carpet nice and soft.
Provided that a carpet is being cleaned with professional (non-residual) cleaning agents and being completely rinsed, rapid re-soiling (caused by cleaning) will never be a problem. However you may want to check that your local cleaner is IICRC certified so you can be reassured of their cleaning credentials.
With respect to carpet salesmen; there are also two other facts to bear in mind: Carpeting that is not cleaned will have to be replaced sooner. Maintaining carpet properly can double its life. Actually Leading Carpet manufacturers require you to clean your carpet every 12-18 months to maintain the warranty on your carpet. The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends cleaning your carpet at least once a year. Dirt is the most abrasive thing to your carpet. Don't wait, get your carpet cleaned now. Protect your investment.
Bottom line you can never clean to much. However neglet can only do harm to your carpets. TLC Carpet Care can help with all your cleaning needs.
