Beware the DIY Carpet Cleaner

Professionally cleaning your carpets once every year to 18 months is vital for protecting and extending the life of your flooring.  Professional carpet cleaning also contributes to better air quality, reducing allergies and illness.

Many people mistakenly believe they can undertake carpet cleaning themselves.  Hiring a carpet cleaning machine from the supermarket is one of the main traps for novices.

These machines are never as effective as professional cleaning even though they involve a considerable amount of time and hard work. Depending on the method used, it is also easy for the inexperienced user to damage the carpet.


The three most common ways novices damage the carpet

1. Over-shampooing occurs when too much detergent is used, or the carpet is not rinsed properly.  Both are pretty much inevitablewith DIY approaches.  The build-up of soapy residue can be impossible to clean out, and this makes the carpet a magnet for dirt!

2. Over-wetting happens when too much water soaks into the bottom of the carpet.  This can lead to some carpets shrinking.  If the carpet backing gets wet, it can be hard to dry, and you run the risk of mould and other hazards.

3. Failing to protect the wet carpet from coming into contact with furniture means that potential wood stains from furniture can discolour the carpet.  In addition, metals can rust and stain the carpet


At MasterClean Carpet Care, our highly trained carpet cleaning professionals know all there is to know about cleaning and protecting carpets!

On arrival, we walk through the premises to assess the job.  Using a special vacuum with turbo brush, we remove solids.  We pre-spray with chemicals appropriate for the carpet fibre type.  A powerful machine steam cleans with dual and triple stage vacuum motors to pull out as much water as possible.  Dirty water is not able to dry back into the carpet.  A rinse agent is used to neutralise any sticky residue left.  Heat and effective extraction minimises drying time and reduces risk of odour and carpet discolouration.
