Don't make these carpet cleaning mistakes
Category: Carpet Cleaning
You can't guarantee that accidents won't happen, but there's a few things you can make sure to do that will make it much more likely that your carpet will survive. There are also some common mistakes that you should steer clear of if you want to minimise the risk of ruining your carpet.
Failing to clean up spills immediately
A spilled drink can set into a carpet rapidly and create permanent stains if action is not taken soon enough.
If you do not act fast enough, the spillage can soak into the fibres of the carpet, leading to erosion or damage.
Neglecting your carpet
If you don't clean your carpet on a regular basis, it will wear down much quicker and will not last as long.
For optimum results, you should ideally be aiming to clean your carpets at least once a month - and more often if they become dirty or stained.
Cleaning too frequently
While this may seem a direct contradiction to the previous point, what is needed here is a careful balance.
Of course it is important to ensure that your carpet gets cleaned regularly, but be careful not to overdo it, as this can lead to the carpet fibres becoming damaged or frayed.
Failing to hire a carpet cleaning company
If you have a lot of stains on your carpet, or you have children or pets, it would be a mistake not to get your carpets professionally cleaned.
You would be surprised at the difference a professional carpet cleaning company can make, and they will have the knowledge and skills to clean up even the most stubborn of stains.
