5 Common Carpet Cleaning Myths: The Series
Last week we discussed the mythologies between hard flooring and carpeting. This week, we will discuss deodorants.
Myth #2: “Carpet Deodorizers do a good enough job keeping my carpet fresh and clean.”
Honestly, they don’t. In fact, they often set the stage for future disaster. Nearly all scented powders on the market today are based on talcum powder. When you sprinkle it into your carpet, the powder accumulates and creates unnecessary dust in your home. Since talcum powder is not water soluble, any connection to spills or heavy moisture can cause tiny clumps that will damage the structure of your carpet, forcing early repair or replacement.
If you try to vacuum the powder, it simply will not be enough. Some of the powder will always stay behind and eventually become more dust. They often combine with other allergens and pollutants in the carpet, creating a mixture that could be even more damaging to your carpet and you.
Preferred Carpet Care has specialized equipment to meticulously remove those pollutants – including the powder remnants – without damaging your carpet. We also have special deodorizers that balance out the pH levels in your carpet fibers, eliminating odors instead of masking over them with powder.
Rather than disguising the odors in your carpet, contact the professional carpet cleaners at Preferred Carpet Care of Redding. We will remove the source of foul odors and keeping your home healthy and happy! Contact us today to schedule cleaning.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for our next myth about professional cleaning versus rented or purchased equipment.
