Which method of carpet cleaning is the best?
There are four basic methods of carpet cleaning: shampooing, dry powder method, bonnet cleaning, and the extraction method. “Hot water extraction” or “steam cleaning” is the cleaning method most carpet manufacturers recommend. This is the only method classified as “deep cleaning”. The truck-mounted extraction machines have more power than portable units and the potential for deeper cleaning. Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer recommends this method because its own research indicates that it provides the best capabilities for cleaning.
How often should I get my carpet cleaned?
The general rule of thumb is every year to year and a half. However, if your carpet came with a stain guarantee you must check with your carpet manufacturer to see how often they require a professional cleaning in order to maintain the warranty. Light colored carpet, high traffic areas, and carpet areas subject to abuse from children and pets may require more frequent cleaning.
What can I do to help keep my carpet clean longer?
