Carpet cleaning is far more complex than we give it credit for. It seems such a simple process sometimes doesn’t it? Vacuum it, spot clean when there’s a spill, and have it “shampooed” every now and again right?

Wrong.

Your carpet is the basis of your temple. See it’s important to remember that much like your body, what you put into your carpets matters and can affect it for the rest of its life. Oh yeah, we’re serious about carpet guys!

Carpets in Arizona can be easily ruined if they are not cleaned properly. Therefore, it is critical to choose what you clean your carpets with wisely, as it could mean it’s life or death… dun dun dunnn (it is spooky season after all).

As one of the local AZ Carpet Cleaners, we can provide a bit of professional insight into this issue for you. You can save your carpets a gruesome fate by knowing the 4 Common Types of Carpet Cleaning:

1. Dry Cleaning to Eliminate Odors

Most of the time when people need odors eliminated from their carpet, it is due to pet accidents.

As your furry little friends leave behind unpleasant aromas in your home, it is important to be knowledgeable of cleaning solutions that will fix your problem and those that will just hide it for a time.

Dry cleaning is done by using a powder and rotating brush to temporarily help cover up those smells. Unfortunately, this cleaning is just as it sounds– dry.

The dry cleaning process removes some dirt, but not as much as you think because it doesn’t have a very effective removal process (aka rinsing). But the bigger issue with not rinsing is that the chemicals used to clean with don’t get rinsed away either! Therefore, your carpet is left with a powdery residue…

What’s the point, right?

Powders, air fresheners, household cleaning products, or scented candles are all great ways to temporarily mask pet odors. However, all of these masking methods will eventually wear off, and therefore continue to entice your beloved pet back to the accident site over and over again!

The dry AZ Carpet Cleaners method relies on perfumes and powders to temporarily mask pet odors. However, these masking methods will eventually wear off, and therefore continue to entice your beloved pet back to the accident site over and over again– not to mention leave behind a pesky residue!

2. “Shampooing” The Carpets

Yikes, even the sound of that makes us cringe! Needless to say, shampooing the carpet implies that some AZ Carpet Cleaners use some kind of soap to clean your carpets.

Now, this carpet cleaning mistake may come as a surprise, given that we clean everything in this world with soap, don’t we? Our hands, dishes, laundry, and countertops– the list goes on!

So why would it be so bad to clean our carpets with soap?

The problem with cleaning carpets with soap is that the sticky soapy residue is always left behind. I bet you just shot a glance over to your carpets didn’t you?

Sorry my friend, but this residue is practically invisible to the naked eye!

When you use the carpet shampooing method to clean and remove stains, this soapy dirt water mixture cannot be fully removed from the carpet fibers. In turn, it actually creates a sticky texture on your carpets that will end up attracting more dirt at the end of the day.

With time, those carpet spots that seemed gone forever will simply return dirtier and darker than ever…

3. Carpet Cleaning With Harsh Chemicals

We bet you’re wondering, “Why can I clean my kitchen with over the counter chemical cleaners but not my carpets?”

Carpet cleaning with chemicals has much the same result as cleaning with soaps. Just like soaps, harsh chemicals also leave behind a sticky residue that becomes a magnet for dirt and grime. This means the carpet simply won’t stay clean for long, as it begins collecting dirt again immediately!

Not to mention, hard surfaces like your toilet bowl or kitchen counter are much easier to clean chemicals from. When the harsh chemical residue is left behind in your carpets, it also leaves behind the potential issue of causing skin irritation.

These chemicals are still in the same carpets that your dogs and cats roll around on, walk on, eat off of. Surfaces that your kids sit on, walk on, and play on!
