Although the benefits of having your carpets professionally cleaned are many, you might have heard some of the negative stories about carpet cleaning. These “myths” can prevent you from enjoying clean carpets. Here are the most common ones you shouldn’t believe.

Your Carpets in Midland County Need to Be Professionally Cleaned

“Why hire a professional carpet cleaner? All you need is a good vacuum and a bunch of cleaning products. Besides, a professional carpet cleaning can end up damaging your carpets anyway.” Have you ever heard someone say something along those lines? Some people believe that professional carpet cleaning isn’t worth it or is not necessary. These ideas have led to a bunch of different myths regarding carpet cleaning. The fact is, you need to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year, and you need to hire a quality professional carpet cleaning company such as Midland Cleanpro to do it for you. These are some of the most common stories one hears about carpet cleaning that you simply shouldn't believe.

Debunking Common Carpet Cleaning Myths

Vacuuming Is Enough to Keep My Carpet Clean

Vacuuming is necessary to remove some of the contaminants trapped in your carpets, but it’s not enough to keep them clean.  Carpets work as air fresheners and filters for your home and office. They catch dirt, pollen, dust, pet hair, dead skin, dust mites, and many other pollutants. They also provide cleaner air for you to breathe in. Although vacuums will suck some of those contaminants put of your carpet, it won’t get rid of all of them. You need to have your carpets cleaned by a pro from time to time. Meanwhile, you should vacuum your carpets daily or at list thrice a week, according to carpet manufacturers and the Environmental Protection Agency. This will help prolong your carpet’s life and maintain your health. Here are some more tips to keep your carpets clean.

Professionally Cleaning My Carpets Will Make Them Shrink

A trustworthy carpet cleaning company would never let your carpets shrink. The only reason why carpets shrink is because they weren’t adequately dried after cleaning. You wouldn’t only be dealing with shrinkage in that situation, you would also potentially have to deal with mold and mildew. A certified carpet cleaner has the necessary tools and expertise to leave your carpets moisture-free, eliminating the risk of shrinkage and mold.

Anyone Can Do a Professional’s Job, All They Need Is the Equipment

Nowadays it's easy to rent a carpet cleaning machine, buy a bunch of cleaners at the grocery store, and give carpet cleaning a try. The results are usually disastrous, and they open the door to more significant problems such as bacterial growth, shrinkage, and mold.  Not just anybody can take a cleaning machine and do the job properly. Certified cleaners train their employees on things like choosing the right products for the carpet issue and how to use the equipment appropriately. For instance, at Midland Cleanpro, all the employees are trained to use their exclusive Ion Exchange Process. So if you want professional results, fresh indoor air, and to prolong your carpet’s life, you need to call a pro.

Grocery Store Cleaning Products Are Cheap Alternatives That Work Just the Same

You can’t expect to get the same results from a cheap grocery store cleaner as you would with a professional cleaning product. Stores offer many miracle solutions that promise to remove stains and bad smells from your carpets and upholstery. Unfortunately, mass-market products are formulated with harsh chemicals that can damage your carpet. When dealing with stains, you need a specific product for the particular stain type and the specific carpet fiber. Grocery store products offer a single formula to remove all stains. They might work, but they might also discolor your carpet and even hurt the carpet fibers.

The Longer You Wait to Get Your Carpet Cleaned, the Better

At some point in carpet history, this belief might’ve been correct. Older carpet cleaning methods often left carpets wet and sometimes even dirtier. Modern tools, on the other hand, do an excellent job at removing stains, dirt, and extracting excess water. You shouldn’t wait too long to have your carpets cleaned because you’re allowing all the pollutants that reside in your carpets to hurt the carpet fibers, making your carpet look old and worn.

If My Carpets Don’t Look Dirty, Cleaning Them Is not Necessary

A square foot of carpet can hold up to a pound of dirt and soil before it starts to become visible. By the time you can actually see that your carpets are dirty, they’ve already lost their spring and they’ve stopped reflecting light the same way. Those grains of sand, dirt, and other contaminants have settled in your carpet and are causing it to wear prematurely. Don’t wait until your carpets darken and stink to get them cleaned.
