Best Carpet Cleaning Tips

Carpet cleaning is not such a big job as long as you make sure that machinery and suppliers are safe for carpet and the people who do the cleaning are qualified. Also, check on the deep cleaning as well as the frequency of the surface cleaning.

In general, it is recommended that surface cleaning with a vacuum cleaner be done once a week and then do a deep cleaning once per year. However, if the carpet gets lots of foot traffic, the household has pets, or the carpet is located close to a source of continuous dust, it is a very good idea to both deep clean and surface clean on a more frequent basis.

A majority of manufacturers state that it is good to clean more frequently as opposed to less frequently, in order to protect the carpet fibers. Also, most professional carpet cleaners recommend frequent cleaning to help prevent those using the carpet to be not be exposed to allergens or dust. If moisture has a tendency to accumulate in the carpet, it might turn into a breeding ground for numerous germs.

While selecting the cleaning method, it is very important that the fibre is identified. For example, a carpet that is made out of coarse synthetic fibers is a really low maintenance product, and usually, you can shampoo them without the carpet getting damaged. However, a carpet that is made out of soft natural fibers, like wool, tend to be a high maintenance product and may be damaged if a strong cleaning agent is used or if there is a hard brush on the machine being used to clean it, which rotates at high speeds. So a powerful machine isn’t always the best choice.

So carpet cleaning machines, in addition to accessories, must be carefully selected. You should also carefully select the cleaning method and cleaning supplies that you use. You should also use mild cleaning supplies so that they don’t harm the carpet or the people who are using them. Carpet fibers can be damaged by a strong cleaning agent. Ideally, the cleaning method that is used should match with the recommendation from the manufacturer.

Manufacturers usually recommend extraction or steam cleaning as their preferred deep cleaning method. For carpets like silk that are made out of tender fibers, the ‘dry powder method’ is recommended. The powder-based cleaning supply also should be mild in order to prevent harming the carpet ad the person cleaning the carpet. Nobody else should be in the area, if possible so the powder doesn’t inconvenience anyone.
