For many DIY’ers the idea of rolling up their sleeves and tackling a weekend project around the house seems appealing. Many projects done incorrectly might not cause too many problems, like painting those cute animal pottery pots with the wrong paint or planting some flowers in the wrong soil but cleaning your own carpets isn’t a project that you can recover from if done incorrectly. Here are just a few reasons you want to avoid cleaning your carpets yourself.
Yup, that’s right, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing! In this case we are talking about the shampoo (the soap) applied to your carpet. Almost every carpet cleaning DIY’er makes this mistake. Not only is too much soap routinely applied but then it’s not rinsed our properly. All the chemicals left behind can damage your carpet and will leave residue behind which is a dirt magnet for your carpet.
Soaking your carpet in water isn’t the solution to getting a clean surface. If you apply too much water you run the risk of inviting mold and mildew problems into your home (excess moisture will lie beneath the surface for a long time before it dries out). Other problems involve the carpet shrinking and begin to tear from the edges or at the seams.
Many carpet manufacturers warranties require that the carpet is professional cleaned to keep it validated. Check your specific manufacturer warranties before you go an DIY and when in doubt always contact a professional carpet cleaning company. I could save you A LOT of money in the long run!
OVERUSE OF DEODORIZERS
In addition to clean you want your carpet to smell great too! We know you don’t want pet orders around when guests arrive. Deodorizing your carpet may mask the smell for a short time but it’s not a solution or a substitute for cleaning. Deodorizing powder will get stuck in your carpet fibers resulting in a messy, dull looking carpet and buildups if your vacuum isn’t sufficient enough.
