Questions About Carpet Cleaning...

Question: Does carpet get dirtier more quickly after the carpet has been cleaned?
Answer: This is a common misconception. What happens is that carpet will get dirtier if there is a soap residue that is left behind in the cleaning process. That soap residue attracts the soil. To prevent this from happening, we thoroughly rinse the carpet after cleaning to get the soap residue out.

Question: How does dirt in my carpet wear down the carpet?
Answer: Dirt on your carpet is like rubbing sandpaper on a carpet- wearing down the fibers. When you don’t have your carpet cleaned, the dirt wears down the fibers of your carpet more quickly.
