Carpet cleaning is a necessary part of home maintenance. A clean carpet keeps your family healthier, extends the carpet’s life, and makes your home look more inviting. Stains ruin the appearance of your carpet and unfortunately, many stains happen in the most visible, highest-traffic areas. Improper carpet cleaning is the #1 cause of premature carpet wear and replacement, and the cost of one visit from a professional carpet cleaner could save you potentially thousands in carpet replacement costs.
Aren’t All Stains the Same?
Many people are lured into renting or buying their own steam-cleaning equipment to maintain their carpets. Corporate marketing campaigns, along with a huge number of carpet cleaning detergents and stain removers targeted towards homeowners, reinforce this behavior. Homeowners run into problems, though, when they try to treat a variety of carpet stains with one cleaner or the wrong type of cleaner. Have you ever had a carpet stain that would not come out with one cleaner, so you try three others and scrub the carpet until the carpet’s texture actually changes? This still does not always remove the stain, but it does do permanent damage to your carpet, separating and fraying the individual carpet fibers and possibly making the stain become permanent.
Training Makes the Difference
Professional carpet cleaners undergo extensive training and receive certification in different stain removal methods, depending on the stain’s makeup. Some stains, such as blood, have a protein base while others are mostly oil, for example. These two substances require completely different removal approaches, something in which the average homeowner has not been trained. Carpet cleaner manufacturers market their stain removers based on removing different stain types, but say nothing about the techniques of using heat, cold water, avoiding over-saturation and using multi-step processes to remove difficult spots from your carpet. Professional carpet cleaners are well versed in the nuances of proper stain removal and one visit can restore your carpet to a like-new appearance, adding years to your carpet’s overall life.
Magical Reappearing Stains
Some carpet cleaning products seem to work right away on a stain, but for some reason, the stain resurfaces in a few days. Even worse, some lesser quality carpet cleaning companies will clean your carpets, only to have both stains and dirt in the traffic lanes reappear after a few days or weeks. This phenomenon is caused by improper and inadequate removal of the dirt and stains. The top fibers of the carpet are cleaned, and over time the residual stains and dirt creep up and start showing. High quality professional carpet cleaners use equipment and extraction methods that thoroughly process and remove all of the stains and dirt, leaving no residual behind.
