All of us at Choicecare Carpet Cleaning are excited and grateful for the opportunity to provide you with info about carpet cleaning and help you choose a carpet cleaning company. After more than 20 years in the carpet cleaning business we've learned that carpet cleaning is a subject of much confusion. In fact, people have so many misconceptions about carpet cleaning that we decided to give this info to help you make the best choice when you select a carpet cleaning company. I'll share with u a few costly misconceptions about carpet cleaning. Now here's Misconception # (1) You should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet. No. Dirt is an abrasive- like sandpaper. Every time you step on the carpet, you grind dirt into your carpet fibers. This cuts your carpet, just like you had used a knife. Causing it to wear out faster. Vacuuming helps, but by itself, it's simply not enough. The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned, the more damage you do to it. That is why you see traffic patterns in hallways & common areas in your home. Because these area soil faster than others due to more foot traffic. Misconception # (2) One method of carpet cleaning is good as another. No. You can choose from many methods, most of which are not good. The two good ones are Hot Water Extraction or Bonnet Cleaning with a low moisture process. Be sure the company you choose is able to recommend the process that best fits your individual situation.
