While you can clean your carpet using various products, if you want it to remain fluffy and free from stains, it is best to call a professional cleaner to do the cleaning for you. They know how to remove tough stains and keep your carpet smelling fresh. In this article we will discuss some of the myths in terms of carpet cleaning.

Steam cleaning is better than dry cleaning

Steam cleaning is a process that uses actual steam to clean carpets. But to achieve the full benefits of this process, the water must be heated to a sufficiently high temperature. Using straight steam on a carpet is not very effective because it does not rinse out the fibres. It is best to use a hot water extraction method, which uses water that is hot enough to clean effectively and convert into steam.

Baking soda masks odours

If you are looking for a natural and inexpensive way to eliminate odours from your carpet, consider using baking soda. It is an effective deodorizer and is completely harmless to humans. However, one of the drawbacks is that baking soda tends to clump together, so it is important to transfer it to a large shaker first. This will ensure that the baking soda is evenly distributed across the carpet. It is also helpful to use fresh baking soda as it will absorb odours better. Be mindful that baking soda may not be as effective on harsher odours therefore you should reach out to a professional carpet cleaning company to avoid wasting time, money and causing damage to your carpet.

Baking soda is safe for humans

You may be tempted to use baking soda to clean your carpet, but the fact is that it’s not a good idea. The small particles of baking soda will find their way under the carpet’s fibres and are difficult to remove. It is also likely that you will inhale these particles and it can be harmful to your health. Moreover, the residue left behind by baking soda can damage your carpet and vacuum cleaner.

Vacuuming is enough

Vacuuming is important for carpet cleaning because it removes loose dirt particles from the surface. It also removes the loose, dry debris from between the carpet fibres. However, vacuuming does not remove ground-in dirt. Because dirt contains silicon, which is like small grains of sand, it is abrasive and causes scratches on the fibres therefore, even with vacuuming , an occasional professional carpet cleaning can really help to deep clean your carpet.
