Are you unknowingly making carpet cleaning mistakes? As expert carpet cleaners in San Antonio, TX, we’ve seen it all. Let us help you avoid these common errors so you can keep your carpets looking their best.
Mistake #1: Not vacuuming often enough.
Regular vacuuming is essential for maintaining clean and healthy carpets. It removes dirt, grime, and allergens, preventing damage to your carpet fibers. Plus, it improves indoor air quality by trapping dirt and dust. We recommend vacuuming at least once a week, but if you have pets, children, or heavy foot traffic, more frequent vacuuming is necessary.
Mistake #2: Neglecting high-traffic areas.
Areas like hallways and entryways receive the most foot traffic, leading to wear and tear. To protect these areas, consider using rugs and regularly rotating them to distribute the wear evenly. Our carpet protectant service adds an extra layer of defense against stains in high-traffic areas.
Mistake #3: Scrubbing at stains.
When spills happen, avoid the temptation to scrub aggressively. This can actually make the stain worse. Instead, gently dab at the stain with a white rag to remove the liquid. If the stain persists, it’s best to leave it to professional carpet cleaners like us to ensure specialty stain removal without damaging your carpet further.
Mistake #4: Skipping professional cleanings.
Even with regular vacuuming and spot cleaning, dirt and dust can accumulate deep within your carpets, furniture, and area rugs, affecting their appearance and longevity. Our professional cleaning service reaches deep into the fibers to remove embedded grime, leaving your carpets looking and feeling renewed.
