Wet Carpet Cleaning Myths

Carpet cleaning is a tricky task. Some come with pads, some come without them. Even the ones that come with pad have different sizes of pad. So what should you keep in mind while cleaning them. Well, most of the techniques of carpet cleaning involve water and although your carpet may feel very solid under your feet, it offers very little resistance to water passing through it. This is where we find several wrong notions or myths about carpet cleaning which often bothers carpet users when they giving it a wash. Here are some of them.

The first myth that is there is that the carpet will dry by itself. Yes, but eventually. The carpet will dry by itself very slowly and by the time it completely dries, it’ll more than likely have mold and smells by the time. So, never wait for it to dry itself as it often brings problems.

Another myth that people have is that you can’t dry a wet pad under a carpet. The truth to this myth is that you can dry a wet pad, even without floating that carpet, but that doesn’t mean you always should. Another myth that is attached to the previous one is that you have to lift the carpet and ‘float’ it using blowers which is absolutely wrong. You don’t have to float carpet if you have a deep extraction tool with you.

Most people tend to think that professional Carpet Cleaning will dry their carpet and pad which is not true. Unless a deep extraction tool is used, water will still be there inside the carpet, no matter how professional the cleaner maybe. Regular carpet cleaning wand never removes water completely from the carpet pad.

In all these myths, the common issue is with water and wet carpets so if you do it by yourself and the carpet is not drying quickly, you could face a mold situation. Now, this could prove to be much more expensive to fix than drying the carpets with the help of a professional or a deep extraction tool.
