As a homeowner, it’s natural to want to take care of spills and stains on your carpets as soon as they occur. If you try to clean stains from carpets yourself can often do more harm than good. Here are a few reasons why it’s a good idea to leave carpet cleaning to the professionals:
Using the wrong cleaning products: Different types of stains require different cleaning solutions. Using the wrong product on a stain can actually set it in and make it harder to remove. Sometimes these store bought cleaners will bleach your carpet and once that happens your carpet is damaged permanently. Professionals have the knowledge and experience to identify the type of stain and use the appropriate cleaning solution to remove it.
Over-wetting the carpet: Using too much water or cleaning solution on a carpet can cause the fibers to become saturated, leading to shrinkage or even mold growth. Professionals have specialized equipment that allows them to carefully control the amount of water used, ensuring that your carpets are properly cleaned without becoming damaged.
Damaging the carpet fibers: Rubbing or scrubbing a stain too hard can cause the fibers to become frayed or even pull out completely. This can lead to permanent damage to your carpet and make it look unsightly. Professionals have the right tools and techniques to gently remove stains without damaging the carpet.
Making the stain worse: Trying to clean a stain yourself can actually spread it further into the carpet, making it even harder to remove. Professionals have the training and experience to properly treat stains, ensuring that they are completely removed.
