Perhaps you’ve been told in the past that you should wait as long as possible to clean your carpets, or that hot water cleaning damages your carpet.
These are just two of the common myths surrounding carpet care. The carpet in your home may be one of the biggest investments you have! Knowing that, shouldn’t you want to take care of it the best way possible? That’s why you should NOT wait too long to have it cleaned! Dirt is abrasive, every time you step on your carpet, you grind dirt into the fibers. This cutting action will cause your carpet to wear out faster. The longer you wait between cleanings, the faster the carpet wears out. As far as hot water damaging your carpet, a properly cleaned carpet will not be damaged at all by hot water extraction cleaning. Obviously, carpet cleaners will all be biased toward their own method of cleaning. However, major carpet manufacturers recommend ONLY hot water extraction cleaning using truck-mounted equipment
