Carpets bring a lot of personality into a home and a room. Moreover, they are a great way to protect your flooring and add color, warmth, and texture to any space. Apart from being a wonderful accent to a room, there are various benefits to carpeting your area. Carpets can serve as an insulator, helps dampen sound, and reduce slips and falls as it offers more traction than hard flooring.

However, many myths and misconceptions that linger about carpet cleaning, in general, are not true. But believing in them could cost you money and shave years off of your carpet’s usable lifespan. To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, Scotties Green Tech Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Ltd has debunked two of the most widely believed myths about carpet cleaning.

Myth 1: Steam cleaning carpets lead to mildew and mold growth
Carpet steam cleaning requires special training and proper methods. This myth exists because many clients who have hired various companies left their carpets soaked for several days by lingering the machine too long in one spot. This is not normal and must never leave your carpets soaking wet as it will penetrate and damage the underlay and cause mold or mildew to grow.

We don’t use much water, so the carpet’s underlay is safe. We have a high-pressure cleaning machine that cleanses your carpets while wasting minimal water.

Myth 2: Vacuuming too often wears out the carpet faster
Modern carpeting is specifically made to withstand frequent vacuuming. However, some vacuums on the market may be too aggressive for everyday use. To care for your carpet as you vacuum, make sure to use a vacuum cleaner that is functioning properly.

At Scotties Green Tech Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Ltd, we use Dy Foam encapsulation and a powerful vacuum to deeply cleanses your carpets.
