Tips From The Best Carpet Cleaners: Watch Out For Wet Carpeting

When you hire the best carpet cleaners, Zerorez, you can be sure that you're getting the best possible care for your carpeting. And though we know how great our equipment, technicians and patented cleaning technology are, we know that it's tempting for some people to bypass our professional services and rent a DIY carpet cleaner from their local grocery store. The problem with do-it-yourself carpet cleaners is that there is often a steep learning curve which can make it hard to operate them correctly; and a rental carpet cleaner that isn't used correctly can lead to either carpeting that isn't really clean afterwards or carpeting that ends up soggy - or both.

Excess Water Can Lead To Health Problems

You know that your carpeting can get wet for a few reasons, the most likely being that you have a water leak somewhere in your home that is slowly (or quickly) saturating your carpeting with water. But did you also know that you can leave an excessive amount of water in your carpeting when you use a home steam cleaner? Part of the process of cleaning carpeting is extracting water and excess cleaning product residue after you've steam-cleaned, which can be tricky especially when you're working with a bulky machine and you have to get into corners or on stairs with it. If this water is allowed to sit in your wall-to-wall carpeting, especially when it's allowed to sit for more than 48 hours, you're going to have big problems.

Water in your carpeting can lead to mold growth that can cause damage to the foundation of your home and significant respiratory and other health problems, especially for people who are immunocompromised, small children or the elderly. Though small pieces of carpeting can be removed if they are found to be moldy, extensive mold throughout your carpeting means you'll have to remove all of it; and if mold reaches floor boards or the foundation, you may need to have major, costly repairs done to your home.

Excess Water Can Damage Carpeting

At Zerorez, because we are the best carpet cleaners in Las Vegas, NV, we know that mold isn't the only bad thing that can happen when carpeting is allowed to remain wet for 48 hours or longer. We know that delamination can occur. Delamination is the process of carpet fibers separating from the carpet backing and pad due to the moisture-induced deterioration of the glue that keeps them all together. When it happens, you may notice unattractive sections of your carpeting that are wrinkled or appear to be "bubbled up." If the delamination is bad enough, you'll actually be able to pull the carpet fibers directly off the pad, which means you'll have to replace sections or all of your carpeting.
