We’re not sure how many of the myths about professional carpet cleaning got started, but our Casper team has heard them all. Whether people have called our office to get clarification or stopped us on the street to ask a question, we’ve heard some interesting myths about the carpet cleaning process over the years and we’re always glad to set the record straight. Here are three of the most common myths we hear about professional carpet cleaning and the truth behind them.

Do You Believe These Myths?

Myth #1: Professional carpet cleaning wears out your carpets faster.

Not even a little bit true. In fact, the opposite is true! Professionally cleaned carpets tend to last longer than their counterparts. That’s because the machines that we use in the carpet cleaning process get rid of dirt, dust, and debris that is trapped deep in the fibers of your carpet. If left there, they will weaken your carpet fibers and make the carpeting look older, faster. Removing the dirt keeps your carpets looking and feeling newer for longer. Having your carpets cleaning regularly can reduce how often you have to replace carpeting in your home, saving you money over time.

Myth #2: Carpet cleaners create mold and mildew in your carpets.

This myth goes along with another common one that we hear a lot, which is that professionally cleaned carpets take days to dry. If your carpeting takes days to dry, you need a new carpet cleaning team. Our machines extract almost all of the water from your carpets along with the dirt and stains. All that’s left behind is beautifully cleaned carpeting. The carpets that we clean may be slightly damp to the touch and should dry in a couple hours at the most. You should be able to walk on them and resume normal activities as soon as we leave. And because we don’t leave the carpets soaking wet, there is no way that mold and mildew are going to start growing in the fibers.

Myth #3: Professionally cleaned carpets attract dirt faster.

Again, this is a myth that’s the opposite of the truth. In reality, professionally cleaned carpets can actually stay cleaner for longer. That’s because they are deep-down cleaned by our powerful machines, so you don’t have any buried dirt to make your carpets look older than they actually are. Secondly, we can treat your carpets with spray-on stain-resistant barriers. This can help prevent dirt and liquids from making their way into the fibers of your carpets. That makes spills and stains easier to clean up and helps your carpets look their best long after our team is done cleaning them.
