Bernal's Carpet Care: 5 COSTLY MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT CARPETT CLEANING  

MISCONCEPTIONS #1
Having the right equipment is all company needs to clean your carpets properly.

Not true.
Many companies own hot water cleaners but very few companies teach their employees how to use them properly. This is why it's important that you choose your carpet cleaner carefully. The best cleaning Companies are those that have been certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification known as the IICRC.

MISCONCEPTIONS #2
The only reason to clean carpets is to remove dirt.

Not true.
As you probably know, outdoor air contains pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust and hundreds of other chemicals. When you come into your home, you carry those pollens, bacteria and chemicals in your hair and on your skin, clothing, and shoes. Not surprisingly, all those chemicals and toxins wind up in your carpet.

If you have allergies, asthma, emphysema, or other breathing problems, one major source of your problem could be the pollens, fungus, smoke and chemicals in your carpet.

MISCONCEPTIONS # 3
The Company that offers the lowest price is the company you should hire.

Not true.
I've seen so many problems arise from lowest-bid companies that I suggest you NEVER hire a company that quotes the cheapest price. The two most common problems are:

   1. The price may not be for the services you want performed. The company may be equipped to remove only the dirt from your carpet. But you may want bacteria, fungus, pollens, and tobacco residues removed as well.

   2. The price you see advertised may not be the price you pay. Many homeowners have learned that the low price they saw advertised lasted only until the carpet cleaner got to their home. Some carpet cleaners even bread the law by swinging illegal bait and swish tactics.

MISCONCEPTIONS # 4
You should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet.

Not true.
Dirt is an abrasive…like sandpaper. Every time you step on your carpet, you grind dirt into the carpet fibers. This cuts your carpet, just as if you had used a knife, this cutting causes your carpet to wear out faster. A dirty carpet will not last as long as a clean carpet cleaned, the more damage you do to your carpet the faster it wears out.

MISCONCEPTIONS # 5
One method of carpet cleaning is as good as another.

Not true.
The dry cleaning methods -which are dry chemical and dry compound, don't rinse your carpet in any way. Instead, they leave a dirty residue. You might say they clean your carpet only half way. The most effective cleaning method is hot water extraction.

Hot water extraction means a hot water cleaning solution, under high pressure, is forced into your carpet and then drawn back out of your carpet. This allows the dirt, bacteria, and pollens to be broken up and extracted from your carpet. Shaw industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, require hot water extraction as the primary method of cleaning carpets.
