Carpet and upholstery cleaning myths

Maintaining the sterility of your rug and upholstery is vital to keeping the health of yourself and your family. Yet, there are certain suggestions regarding their sanitation that can damage and ruin. Listed below are some of the myths about carpet and upholstery cleaning.

Carpet cleaning should not be done on a “not dirty” carpet

“If the carpet doesn’t look dirty I don’t need to schedule a service”. On the contrary, you should. Although your rug seems neat and pristine on the surface, in reality, it needs to be sanitized because of the dirt and filth embedded deep in the fibers. This will help prevent unwanted allergies or diseases.

Upholstery cleaning should be done with the hottest water

This is not very accurate. While there are times when you should sanitize using hot water, certain fabrics such as non-colorfast ones require using water that is warm in order to avoid color bleeding. Also, synthetic velvets require a consistent temperature of the liquid with the limit being “very warm”.

Knowing how to perform correct upholstery or carpet cleaning helps to prevent unwanted damage to the materials. If you would like to learn more about how to sanitize these parts of your furniture contact a professional cleaning company such as Express Steamway Carpet Cleaning in Pensacola, FL.
