The harms of diy carpet cleaning

Your carpets need to be cleaned on a regular basis in order for them to last and look their best. Professional carpet cleaning will make you feel more confident about allowing your children or pets to play in the house.

Your carpet needs attention beyond considering home maintenance tasks like vacuuming every week; but did you know that your carpet merits increased professional attention when our dear old fuzzy friends are involved? Dogs are great at tracking dirt into places where we don’t want it – whether its paws scuffing up those expensive oriental rugs under furniture near entryways, fur gathering pine needles from outside lurking around back door hinges during winter months, or potentially leaving behind allergens in the carpet.

The right professionals can get your carpets clean in no time. However, many homeowners are unsure about how to properly clean their own carpeting and instead opt for DIY projects that often disappoint due to the difficulty involved with proper cleaning equipment needed as well as an understanding of what type of detergent is best suited for each fabric surface type.

The solution: hiring qualified cleaners like Van’s Chem-Dry who know exactly which tools will work on any type or size stain! Most of the time, DIY solutions can end up causing more harm than good to your carpets, especially because most people don’t fully understand what they are undertaking. Consider a professional carpet cleaning the next time your carpet is due for a refresh.


The Negative Impacts of DIY Carpet Cleaning

Most things can be cleaned with soap and water, but carpets are a major exception. Because carpet fibers are tightly packed together to form many layers that have delicate threads attached at every turn for visibility purposes, it can be difficult to remove the soap entirely from the carpet with DIY cleaning methods.

Even if you use a detergent that is specially formulated for carpets, it isn’t very effective at getting rid of soaps. You might think your carpet looks clean because all the soap has been removed from its fibers when in fact there’s still residue left behind by water used during the cleaning process which leaves them soggy and unkempt looking instead!

The carpet can take days to dry afterward; in the meantime, it’s an inviting breeding ground for mold and mildew. Additionally, soap left behind will act as a dirt magnet making your room feel dirty all over again sooner than later.

Rather than simply using soap and water on the most soiled areas of your carpet, you might opt instead to rent a steam cleaning machine. In fact, this could be seen as an upgrade from basic DIY carpet cleaning methods! However, these machines can be unwieldy if one isn’t familiar with them.

It’s true that steam cleaning comes with many of the same negatives as using soap and water. For starters, your carpets may still take days to dry – not even mentioning all the detergent-based residues that can get left behind! In addition, once again if someone gets impatient waiting to move their furniture back in place before they do so then there is a chance they could leave some stains behind from wood dyes or rust marks due simply because metal feet were touched during this process not too long ago without letting any air circulate around it first (which would cause oxidation).


A Better Way To Clean Carpets

You may be wondering what your options are for ridding the carpet of dust, dirt, and stains. Fortunately, there is a solution that does not rely upon gallons of water or harsh soap-based detergents to lift soil from dense fibers in carpets at home with Chem-Dry’s innovative process called Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE). After one visit by our professional technicians, you should expect drying times measured in hours!

Chem-dry specializes in hot carbonating extraction, which relies on the power of carbonation to lift dirt particles from deep within your carpet. Then these bound-up substances are easily extracted with powerful machinery and water usage is cut nearly 80% compared to traditional steam cleaning methods!

We believe that providing you with peace of mind while caring for each individual fiber like they were our own responsibility; Van’s Chem-Dry will leave no detail untouched so we can give back what matters most: comfort at home.
