           MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT CARPET CLEANING

MISCONCEPTION #1: You should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet.

No. Dirt is abrasive-like sandpaper. Every time you step on your carpet, you grind dirt into the carpet fibers. This cuts your carpet, just as if you had used a knife. This cutting causes your carpet to wear out faster. A dirty carpet will not last as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps-by itself, it's simply not enough. The longer you wait to have your carpet cleaned, the more damage you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out.

MISCONCEPTION #2: The only reason to clean carpets is to remove the dirt.

No. As you probably know, outdoor air contains pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust and hundreds of other chemicals. When you come into your home, you carry those pollens, bacteria and chemicals in your hair and on your skin, clothing and shoes. Not surprisingly, all those chemicals and toxins wind up in your carpet.

If you have allergies, asthma, emphysema, or other breathing problems-one major source of your problem could be the pollens, fungus, smoke and chemicals in your carpet.

MISCONCEPTION #3: One method of carpet cleaning is as good as another.

No. The dry-cleaning methods-which are dry foam, dry chemicals, and dry compound-do not rinse your carpet in any way. Instead, they leave a dirty residue. You might say they clean your carpet only halfway. The most effective cleaning method is hot water extraction.

Hot water extraction means a hot water cleaning solution, under high pressure, is forced into your carpet and then sucked out of your carpet. Shaw Industries, the world's largest carpet manufacturer, recommends hot water extraction as the primary method of cleaning carpets, along with an IICRC approved firm.

Carpet cleaners use on of two types of hot water extraction. If they use a large unit that operates from a van or truck outside your facility, it's called truck-mounted extraction. If they use a small unit that can be brought inside, it's called portable extraction. Shaw's first choice is the truck-mounted unit-and it recommends the small, portable unit only in areas where the truck-mounted unit won't reach.

The truck-mounted extraction cleans much better because it heats the water to a higher temperature-which breaks up the dirt, bacteria, chemicals and pollens in the carpet. Then the
machine uses high suction to draw the dirt and chemicals out of your carpet..

MISCONCEPTION #4: Having the right equipment is all a company needs to clean your carpets properly.

Not true. Many companies own hot-water cleaners but very few companies teach their employees how to use them properly. This is why it's important
 that you choose your carpet cleaner carefully.
 
Stains # 5
Why my stains came back after a while?
 In some cases does happen that some stains return, some
times the satin ready reached the pad and as we clean
the pad still have the satin,allways let the carpet dry good before
start walking on it and it helps the stain not to reach the surface again
or so soon,we clean the carpets but the pad still not clean,and that's a think
that we can't help,there is help on the stains that return we can treat the spot
and some times it wont come back and some times comes again.
That is an old saying we clean the carpets but can't restore just clean.
