When you choose a certified company with industry-certified technicians who understand the needs of your carpet, you will get better results. Here are a few tips to ensure you are happy with your carpet after it is cleaned. You will be thankful you did!
There Are No Easy Answers
Some of the most common questions that people ask about carpet cleaning include, “Will the spots come back?”, “Will the dents from the furniture come out?” “Will the traffic areas look better after it’s done?” and “Will these stains come out?” The answer to these and other questions requires knowledge and experience.
Carpet can be made with various fibers, each having its own cleaning characteristics. In addition, every fiber handles traffic and wear in its own unique way. Some soils that are easy to remove from one carpet fiber may permanently stain another. Then, there is the construction of the carpet. Loop pile, frieze, shag, Saxony, velvet plush –these styles will respond to traffic differently. The quality and density of the cushion is another factor. Even the unique way the pile yarns are twisted and how tightly packed they are in the carpet backing make a difference in wearability and cleanability.
Questions an Experienced Cleaner will Ask
An experienced carpet cleaner will assess the condition of your carpet, asking: What is the age of the carpet? How was it cleaned in the past, and how often? Was protector applied during the last cleaning? How old are the spots, spills, and stains, and have you tried anything to clean them?
With all these variables, how can you know what to expect from a carpet cleaning? Unfortunately, it’s not an exact science. However, experienced carpet cleaners know some things about carpet, fibers, soil, and stains that give them a clue as to what they can anticipate from the cleaning process. Perhaps the most crucial consideration is the type of fiber. Just because they are all soft and fluffy does not mean they are all the same.
An certified carpet cleaner is trained to identify types of fibers and use their knowledge of that fiber’s characteristics to anticipate potential challenges. Here are a few examples:
- If a carpet is wool, you know that it has excellent resilience, so those crushed traffic areas and furniture indentations have a good chance of coming out. But wool is more easily stained by proteins than other fibers, so some foods, pet urine, and other protein sources like blood will be difficult to remove.
- Olefin carpets do not have the resiliency of wool, so high-traffic areas tend to pack down and lose that fluffy texture over time. However, Olefin has excellent stain resistance and color-fastness.
- Stain-resistant nylon has excellent resilience and good stain and soil repellency, so carpets made with nylon tend to be the best overall performers. However, depending on how the fiber was dyed, Nylon may be bleached by some household chemicals or sunlight.
- Polyester fibers have an affinity for oily soils, so food or petroleum grease spots will be more challenging to remove. But Polyester, like Olefin, is very resistant to stains and bleaching. The bottom line is that how the carpet looks after cleaning will depend on some factors that are out of our control.
