When it comes to carpet cleaning in Perth, there are literally hundreds of myths circulating.  There are myths for best practices, what’s good/bad for your carpets and best cleaning methods.  Although turning your back to everything on the internet is not recommended, it’s important to take it all with a grain of salt.

At Wizard Cleaning W.A, we’ve decided to list are top 3 Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to carpet cleaning. We know how hard it can be to find reputable information on the Internet, so hopefully this makes it easier for you.

Do’s with Carpet Cleaning in Perth

DO read the care and maintenance literature that comes with your carpet.  When purchasing new carpets or rugs it’s important to hold on to the bit of information that comes with it.  This literature will generally have some great care instructions for looking after your carpets.  Be sure to follow along, and don’t think that every carpet is the same.

DO vacuum regularly.  If you are noticing that your carpets are becoming quickly filled with dirt, dust and food particles, be sure to vacuum regularly.  Even if you’re not noticing it happening, vacuum before it becomes noticeable.  By regularly vacuuming your carpet you can minimise the amount of visits you’ll need from professional carpet cleaners.

DO hire a professional carpet cleaning company.  When taking a serious approach in looking after your carpets we always recommend hiring a professional carpet cleaning company.  If you look around, you should be able to find one for a great price.  You wouldn’t even have to do it too often.  Generally once or twice per year could leave your carpets looking and feeling great. It’s a very small investment when you consider the benefits that your carpets are receiving.

Don’ts with Carpet Cleaning in Perth

DON’T use harsh chemicals to clean stains.  If you are really desperate to use carpet cleaning foams or deodorisers from the supermarket be sure to test them out first. Apply the solution to a small, inconspicuous part of your carpet.  See how it reacts before applying it to larger, more open spaces.

DON’T ignore stains for too long.  For any pet, food or drink stain on your carpet, we generally recommend to try and clean them straight away.  Be careful when doing this though as you don’t want the stain to become too engrained into the fibres.  Generally having your carpets steam cleaned after a stain occurs will be the best option here.

DON’T leave your furniture in the one place.  So many homes are left with giant marks in their carpets from their furniture.  If you have a heavy lounge or T.V cabinet be sure to move them around every month or so. By leaving these items in the one spot you will potentially risk leaving irreversible indents in your carpets.  If moving the furniture around isn’t an option you can always try to laydown a small piece of material or carpet cut-out under the furniture’s feet.

So there you have it! Hopefully this information makes it a little easier for you when it comes to carpet cleaning.  If done regularly, carpeting cleaning isn’t too big of a job.  The benefits from doing so go far beyond aesthetics.  Your carpets will be cleaner and healthier which is great for any home. For more information on carpet cleaning, feel free to see our Carpet Steam Cleaning Perth page HERE..
