There is nothing better than having a clean, fluffy and perfectly well maintained carpet. Your carpet is one of the decorating investments that you make in your home. You took considerable care in choosing the color, material and pattern of your home’s carpet. When you take good care of your carpet, it can last for many years. Your carpet should be professionally cleaned, even if you vacuum regularly. Professional carpet cleaning extends the life of the carpeting and reduce allergies and illness. However, to save money, many of us alternate between the do-it-yourself cleaning and professional cleaning. The do-it-yourself is less expensive, but never as effective as professional cleaning.

Keeping your carpets in the best condition, mistakes can happen that can cause your carpet to wear prematurely. In order to help you keep your carpet lasting as long as it should, beware of the three most common ways do-it-yourselfers damage carpets.

  1. Over shampooing

Cleaning too frequently can actually wear down your carpet by loosening the fibers, making the carpet loose and more susceptible to dirt. Sometimes we apply too much shampoo during the cleaning process and we don’t properly rinse out what we applied. The chemicals left behind can damage your carpet, and will leave residue behind which will make your carpet into a dirt magnet.

  1. Over-Wetting

Happens when too much water soaks into the bottom of the carpet. If too much water is applied, you run the risk of not only inviting mold and mildew problems into your home. Some materials cause the carpet to discolor if they get too wet.

  1. Overuse of Deodorizers

Deodorizing powders can be effective for removing bad smells from your carpet but they are not used as a substitute for cleaning. Overuse of these powders can also cause buildups in your carpet, especially if your vacuum does not adequately remove them.

  1. Avoiding Professional Cleaning

Many carpet manufacturers warranties require that the carpet is professional cleaned. It is recommended by carpet manufacturers to have carpets professionally cleaned once every 12 months for maintenance. Dirt, dust, and other debris gather deep in the carpet fibers. Professional carpet cleaning services can remove this deeply embedded debris.

If you do not feel comfortable cleaning the carpet yourself, contact a carpet cleaning professional to do the job right. Keeping your carpet clean and maintained will not only improve the look and the life of your carpet, but also improve the look of the interior of your home.
