Carpet Cleaning as Maintenance

Many homeowners tend to wait until their carpets are quite dirty to call for professional carpet cleaning services. Unfortunately, this is never a good idea. The longer dirt and grime stays in the carpet, the more it gets ground down into the padding and the harder it becomes to remove it. A good rule of thumb involves contacting a professional to clean your carpets once every one or two years, depending on the amount of traffic they receive. For example, if you use your carpeted living room and hallway quite often, but the guest bedroom is hardly ever used, you may only need to clean a few rooms in your home annually.

 carpet cleaning types

Types of Carpet Cleaning

Depending on the type of carpet you have and the extent of the dirt and grime build-up, certain methods of carpet cleaning may be better suited to your needs.

Dry compound

This almost entirely biodegradable cleaning product is spread evenly over the carpet and scrubbed into the fibres. Dirt attaches to the product and is then vacuum cleaned, leaving carpets dry and spotless.

Encapsulation

This method of carpet cleaning uses polymers to encapsulate dirt particles. This is a deep cleaning method that leaves carpets looking brighter without leaving any residue. This method is recommended for high-traffic areas.

Bonnet

A mist product is deposited onto the surface of the carpet. A bonnet device then scrubs in a circular motion to remove dirt and grime. This is not a dry cleaning method and may require time to dry before the carpets can be used.

Shampoo

This is a wet method using traditional shampoo cleaners and rotary machines. A drying period is mandatory. There are environmentally friendly shampoos and detergents available for carpet cleaning.

Dry Foam Carpet Cleaning

This method is done using a dry foam machine. Despite the name, this product uses 10% liquid and may require a drying period.

Stain Removal

Stains, spills and ingrained dirt from children and pets can make the best of carpets look tired and worn. Professional carpet cleaners use a hot water deep-clean extraction system to lift dirt out of the fibres, removing stains and odours.

Allergy Reduction

Deep clean extraction methods may assist in the eradication of allergy and asthma causing mites, generally present in older carpets, especially prevalent in homes with pets.

Cost Effective Cleaning

DIY carpet cleaning can take hours and may result in a soggy carpet that isn't any cleaner. The cost of hiring carpet cleaning professionals saves you time and back breaking labour, while guaranteeing you spotless, odour free carpets. The DIY use of strong detergents can also be risky and result in health problems in you and your family. Rather trust the professionals to use the required chemicals to get the job done quickly and painlessly.

Renting Carpet Cleaning Machines

While it’s possible to rent commercial-grade carpet cleaning machines from many retailers, there are a few important points to keep in mind.

  • These machines are quite cumbersome, so it can be difficult to load them into your car, unload them, use them, and then reload and return them.
  • The rental costs are often quite high, and you’ll need to pay for the carpet cleaning solutions designed for use in those machines according to the manufacturer. By the time you’ve paid for the rental and purchased the cleaner, you could have hired a professional for just a little more.
  • If something happens to those machines while they are in your possession, you may be responsible for paying for damages or even a replacement. While some companies do provide some protection for these types of events, the user is often liable.

Your carpet cleaning questions answered

When should carpet cleaning be performed?

Any time your rugs are stained or soiled, you should consider having them cleaned. In most cases, carpet cleaning will need to be performed two or three times a year.

Can pet stains be removed from carpet?

Most of the time, pet stains can be removed unless they have been allowed to set for some time. Extremely stubborn stains may need to be pre-treated ahead of time in order to ensure they are completely removed.

How much does professional carpet cleaning cost?

On average, professional carpet cleaners will charge between £2.50 and £3.00 per square metre. Stairs are more expensive, and can cost as much as an additional £2.00 per stair.

Can I clean my carpet myself?

Yes. You can rent a carpet steamer for approximately £100 and clean your carpet yourself, but even steaming your carpet regularly cannot approach the level of clean that a professional can achieve.

What are the most difficult carpet stains to remove?

Coffee, red wine, ink, and blood stains are all difficult but not impossible to remove. Even if they cannot be completely removed, they may often be significantly reduced in size.

Can you clean carpets too much?

Modern carpets are designed to withstand a lot of cleaning without showing signs of wear or needing repair. You will however need to be cautious when cleaning traditional or older carpet types. For that reason it's important to have a professional perform the best cleaning technique for your needs.

How long will it take to clean my carpets?

This depends on the amount of work to be done and the overall condition of your carpets. If they are especially dirty, or if there are stains that need pretreatment, carpet cleaning could take the better part of a day. Conversely, if you’re only cleaning one room as part of routine maintenance, this may be done in a couple hours.

Will I need to stay out of my home until the carpets have dried?

It’s always best to avoid walking on freshly-cleaned carpets until they have dried thoroughly. Be sure to open windows and turn on fans, where possible. It should take one to two hours to dry in most conditions, but if your carpets are thoroughly saturated, it may take as long as 12 hours. Your chosen professional can provide more precise information.
