There are a lot of myths out there about carpet cleaning, and we've heard quite a few. Here are three misconceptions about commercial carpet cleaning that you may have heard, too.
1. Your carpet is too new to clean.
It's a long-standing misconception that cleaning your new carpet will cause it to wear out sooner. Today's carpets, which are designed to conceal dirt and stains, can be much dirtier than they appear to be. In fact, some carpet weave designs are so good at hiding dirt that a full pound can be extracted from just one square foot. The truth is, letting dirt linger in your carpet will wear it out sooner. Soil, sand, and other foreign substances act as abrasives, causing damage to the fibers of your carpet. Commercial carpet cleaning services can advise you when it's time to clean your new carpet.
