Having a clean carpet is important


As many as 2,000 dust mites can live in a single ounce of carpet dust, and several pounds of soil accumulate underneath the average household carpet every year. Carpets can hold several indoor air pollutants at once and also foster mould growth in areas of high humidity.


Because of this, it’s important to clean your carpets regularly. But there are several mistakes home owners and untrained carpet cleaners can often make.

Putting off Cleaning


When you don’t act immediately to contain a spill, it can soak into carpet fibres and underlay forming a stain. If a liquid is acidic, it may even start to eat away at your fibres. If some stains are given time to dry and set they can be almost impossible to remove. Act quickly to soak up a spill and you can usually prevent them from forming lasting stains.

Using the Wrong Cleaning Products


When you go to the shop, you’ll be barraged by cleaning product options, but not all of them will be good for your carpet. Read all labels carefully, and try to buy products that are actually made for carpet cleaning. Before using any product, test it out on a small area of carpet somewhere that’s out of view. Sometimes it’s safer to call in a recommended local carpet cleaner to avoid damaging your carpet with the wrong cleaning products.

Not Cleaning Your Carpet Often Enough


Too many people avoid hiring carpet cleaners because they believe the expense is too high, but many local carpet cleaners are much cheaper than you’d expect. Their services are especially useful if you have a lot of kids or pets that dirty up your carpet. You’ll be amazed at the difference that the best carpet cleaners can make.
