The Most Common Carpet Cleaning Questions

When it comes to maintaining the cleanliness and longevity of your carpets, a multitude of questions can arise. Here are answers to some of the most common carpet cleaning questions.

How often should I vacuum my carpets?

Vacuuming frequency depends on foot traffic and household dynamics. Generally, vacuum high-traffic areas 2-3 times a week and less-used spaces once a week.

Can I use homemade solutions to clean carpet stains?

A mixture of mild dish soap and warm water can be effective on many stains. However, always test any solution on a hidden area first to prevent damage. If you’re dealing with a delicate or valuable carpet, using home-remedies can be undesirable (or even disastrous!) so you’re always better off seeking professional help.

What’s the best way to deal with pet stains and odours?

Blot the stain, apply an enzymatic cleaner like the Drytron Stain Buster, and blot again. If odours persist, consult a professional carpet cleaner.

Can I use bleach or chemicals on my carpet?

Bleach and chemicals can damage carpet fibres and remove colour. Avoid using it to prevent irreparable damage.

Is professional carpet cleaning necessary?

Yes, professional deep carpet cleaning is recommended every 6 to 12 months. They extract embedded dirt and allergens, prolonging your carpet’s life.

Remember, each carpet is unique, so it’s essential to tailor your cleaning approach to its specific needs. Whether you’re dealing with stains, odours, or routine maintenance, arming yourself with the right knowledge will help you maintain a clean and inviting home environment.
