3 Common Carpet Cleaning Mistakes
Carpets are an interesting thing. They are welcoming and beautiful, yet hard to keep clean. They are soft and warm but can be difficult to take care of. The very common carpet flooring that is used in many houses around Las Vegas can be easily ruined if they are not cleaned properly. As you will see with these three examples of common carpet cleaning mistakes, much of the issue lies within the fact that whatever you put into the carpet is going to be hard to remove. Because of this, it is important to know what you are cleaning with, along with if and how you can be guaranteed everything will be removed from the carpet that is put in.
Cleaning Carpet with Soap
This carpet cleaning mistake may come across as a shocker because we clean our hands, dishes, and countertops with soap - why would it be bad to clean our carpets with soap? The problem with cleaning carpets with soap is that the sticky soapy residue is always left behind. It is often unnoticeable to the eye right after cleaning because the soap particles are small and attached to the carpet's fibers. After a few weeks or few months, you will start to see the physical evidence of soap left behind as those soapy particles start acting like a dirt magnet and brown spots start appearing. So, when you hire someone to come clean your carpets, be sure that they will not be using soap! Doing this will make your carpets stay cleaner longer, and keep you out of a sticky mess.

Carpet Cleaning Harsh Chemicals
Cleaning with harsh chemicals always comes with risks. The difference between cleaning a kitchen and cleaning carpet with harsh chemicals is that carpet is porous and more likely to hold onto particles that are left behind. Whereas when you clean your kitchen with harsh chemicals, the hard surfaces are much easier to remove chemicals from. When harsh chemicals are left behind in the carpet fibers, it also leaves behind the potential issue of causing skin irritation. When the skin of your babies, children, grandchildren, or pets comes into contact with your carpet, you want your carpet to be soft to the touch and not full of cleaning chemicals that could potentially be unsafe.
Dry Cleaning to Eliminate Odors
The next mistake that is commonly made when cleaning carpets is not properly eliminating odors. Most of the time when people need odors eliminated from their carpet, it is due to pet accidents. As your furry little friends add unpleasant aromas to your home, it is important to be knowledgeable of cleaning solutions that will fix your problem and those that will just hide it for a time. Dry cleaning, such as using a powder to "eliminate" odors can help with covering up smells, but those processes are either not cleaning your carpet, or they cause excessive wear on your carpet's fabrics by scrubbing off the dirt rather than extracting it. The traditional carpet cleaner relies on perfumes and oils to cover up pet smells after cleaning, but these agents only work temporarily to mask odors, plus they leave behind an unwanted residue in your carpets.
