A. No doubt this question has surfaced at one time or
another during the years you've owned carpeting. The frequency of cleaning will vary from
one household to another depending upon the number of occupants and level of usage. At a
minimum, you should clean once a year.
We have had some home owners express their fear that once the carpet is cleaned, it will
re-soil quicker. This fear is the result of improper cleaning by other cleaning companies.
Many of these companies, in an effort to cut costs and save time, buy the cheapest cleaning
solutions, don't provide the proper training for their technicians, and do not offer a
separate rinse step in order to remove detergent residues. If detergent is left in the
carpet, accelerated re-soiling will occur.
Carpet Cleaning Gloucester uses a more thorough method of cleaning that uses a rinse step
after the pre-spray process. This method removes deep down soil and leaves no detergent
to accelerate the re-soiling process. The fact is, the best thing you can do for your
carpets is have them regularly cleaned by a qualified professional carpet cleaning company.
It is the buildup of soil that promotes wear to your carpet, far more than the foot traffic
that travels on the surface of the carpet. Foot traffic grinds the soil against the carpet
fibres and causes a sand-paper effect. This causes the fibres to dull and become worn looking.
