You’ve invested the time, money and energy into a carpet cleaning. However, after all that your carpets look — dirtier? It can be incredibly frustrating to get the opposite outcome to what you were after. There are a variety of reasons of why this could happen.

The base of your carpet is stained or worn out

There are a number of reasons this can include. A common one is called carpet wicking. This is when you’ve cleaned and treated the surface of a stain and it disappears. However, when the same area gets wet with a detergent, the stain at the base of the carpet is brought back up to the surface. You can also just have a carpet that is worn out. Carpet fibres can get stomped down and even frayed or broken over time. Carpet cleaning can move these fibres into a different light so that you see the destruction more.

Results of a DIY attempt

There are a lot of steps involved in cleaning your carpets. These steps can differ depending on the type of carpet, the level of soiling, specific stains amongst other reasons. So when our customers try to follow a one-size-fits-all approach for the entirety of their home carpets, the results may not be desirable. It’s important that you thoroughly vacuum the area beforehand. Problems can arise from rinsing too much or too little. You can also add too much or too little detergent to the carpet. Both of these issues mean that the carpets will either not be clean enough or merely be too wet/sticky and attract dirt after the cleaning.

The carpet cleaning technician wasn’t trained properly

An untrained technician can wreak havoc on your carpets. From not treating the type of carpet in the correct way to not having the correct ratios of water and detergent, there are a number of errors that can happen when paying a company. That’s why it’s important to hire professionals that have a good reputation and reviews to back them.
