Carpet Cleaning Myths and Untruths

Home Improvement
Carpeting has been around for a long time and so have ways to keep them clean. Back when they were known as rugs the best way to clean them was to hang the rug over a line and beat it with a stick. Fortunately that has changed and there are now a number of different options when it comes to keeping carpets clean. Unfortunately these modern carpet cleaning machines and techniques have given rise to a few myths.

Before we tackle those myths let’s first look at why keeping carpets clean is so important. First off a carpet full of dirt, dust and grime is a fertile ground for mold, germs, and viruses. Having a dirty carpet can also contribute to indoor air pollution, causing allergic reactions and asthma attacks. Keeping your carpets clean can go a long way to keeping the rest of your house clean and your family healthy.

If any of the following myths are giving you reservations about cleaning your carpet on a regular basis then pay close attention as we debunk them one at a time.

Myth #1 – Vacuuming too much is Bad for Carpets?

This is a common myth. The reasoning behind it is simply that too much vacuuming will wear the carpet out and it will have to be replaced. Modern carpeting is made from synthetic materials which are extremely durable and tough to wear out. Carpeting is also tested and research has proven that running the vacuum 3 or 4 times a week will have little impact on its longevity. The truth is the vast majority of people only vacuum 3 to 4 times a month. If you are one of them it’s probably a good idea to up the frequency you get the vacuum out of the closet.

Myth #2 – Carpeting Shrinks when it is Professionally Cleaned?

Unless you have a really old carpet made out of natural materials such as wool, silk, or cotton this is not really an issue. Most modern carpeting is made out of nylon tied to a synthetic base material, both of which are un-shrinkable. Steam and hot water extraction cleaning will have little effect on synthetic carpeting; whether it be shrinking or color fade. In fact if you do have older carpets made of natural materials professional cleaners will know the proper techniques to endure they are well taken care of.

Myth #3 – Carpets get Dirtier Faster Each Cleaning?

This is normally caused by improper cleaning, particularly by those who use rental cleaning machines. No sooner does the machine get returned to the store then spots and stains begin to appear as if by magic; This more of a result of improper cleaning techniques then the cleaning itself. Chemicals that get left in the carpet or excess water that wasn’t properly extracted attract dirt and grime quickly, leaving those tell-tale spots and stains. For the do-it-yourself carpet cleaner following the directions on the machine and shampoo bottles is vitally important.

Taking care of your carpets will help increase their life and your enjoyment of them. So don’t be afraid of these myths and clean those carpets.
