FALSE! If you wash your clothes, do they get dirtier faster? Of course not. New technology in detergents, fiber construction and powerful truck-mounted steam extraction has virtually eliminated premature resoiling. Home-style, "do-it-yourself" machines or rental units just do not have the power to deep clean the fibers, which may cause a resoiling build-up.
High traffic areas such as family rooms, stairs and hallways need cleaning every six months. Upper level or basement carpets may only need cleaning once a year. Hard surface areas are the biggest dirt generators. Socks, bare feet and shoes transfer dirt from hard floor surfaces into your carpet. You don't realize how much dirt your carpet picks up and hides.
FALSE! Nothing could be further from the truth. The number one reason carpet wears out is foot traffic. However, not walking on the carpet is not a practical option. According to carpet manufacturers, regular vacuuming and truck mounted steam cleaning are recommended to extend the life of your carpet. Did you know that if you don't clean your new carpet professionally (truck mounted steam cleaned) within the first two years you may have voided your warranty? Remember, carpets soil like a trash can- it fills from the bottom up. When looking at your carpet, you cannot see all the build up which has occurred until it's too late. By the time you see a dark traffic pattern, you may have waited too long and may have ruined your carpet.
Vacuums may leave behind as much as 50% of dirt which vibrates downward - if you could only see the dust mites, animal oils, etc.
A person sheds enough skin flakes every night to feed nearly 1,000,000 dust mites. It's the dust mite excretion that has long veen recognized as a leading cause of allergies and asthma. Protect your family's health with a regular schedule of carpet cleaning. Ask about our "semi-annual" program. It may be less than you're currently spending for one cleaning.
