Cleaning a carpet is a complex task, and only a professional can handle it effectively. Nevertheless, many people hesitate to call a professional carpet cleaner since there is a lot of misinformation and myths about commercial carpet cleaning.

Let’s take a look some of these myths and misinformation to see a clear picture.

1. Anyone Can Clean the Carpet

In the age of DIY videos; it is quite common to apply the DIY tips as they seem much easier and cheaper.

But, not all DIY tips are effective. Some of these tips often cause more harm than good. In the long run, trying these tips can prove to be expensive. It can make your carpet wear out sooner and lose its shine. Also, it doesn’t remove the pollutants and allergens from the carpet.

Furthermore, even if you use equipment and cleaning agents that the commercial carpet cleaners use, you can still end up damaging the carpet since you don’t possess the required skills and training.

2. Steam Cleaning Causes Mould Formation

This is not entirely false! But, it is important to note that mould only form when the carpet is steam cleaned by an amateur cleaner, or the cleaning process is not handled correctly, leaving the carpet soaked for days.

Many professional cleaners use steam cleaning to extract the dirt from the deepest part of the carpet. They use techniques to ensure the carpet is dried correctly and no moisture is left to prevent the bacteria and mould from growing.

3. Wait Till the Carpets Get Dirty

Many people wait for months to get their carpets clean. And that’s where things go wrong! It is recommended not to wait for the carpet to look dirty. Even a pristine-looking carpet has lot of dirt particles, bacteria, allergens, mites and more. These particles are so minute that they are invisible to the naked eye.
