What’s The Difference Between Interim & Deep Down Carpet Steam Cleaning
The longevity and deep beauty of your carpet and rugs depend on your carpet cleaning habits and methods. There are typically two phases of carpet cleaning. We call the phases interim carpet cleaning and deep down carpet steam cleaning.
Interim carpet cleaning consists of thoroughly vacuuming the carpet at least once a week-especially in high traffic areas and spot cleaning the carpet as soon as possible after a spill occurs. It is best to use a clean white cloth along with a residential carpet spot removal product such as Guardian Professional Spot Remover.
Deep down carpet steam cleaning means using a professional carpet cleaning company like Guardian Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning to remove the embedded dirt and grime that accumulates with daily traffic. Most carpet manufacturers recommend the hot water extraction (steam Cleaning) method of carpet cleaning be used at least once every 12 to 24 months. Hot water extraction or steam carpet cleaning may also be required by the carpet manufacturers to maintain the carpet warranty.
Have you heard someone say “I don’t have my carpets cleaned because once you do, they get dirtier quicker”? We have. In fact, it’s a question we get asked quite a bit. To be honest, most “Do-it-Yourself” carpet cleaning methods just clean the top area of a carpet and leave a soapy residue behind. This residue will actually attract more dirt and your carpet gets dirtier quicker requiring another carpet cleaning.
It’s not just the “Do-it-Yourself” carpet cleaning methods, there are some carpet cleaning companies that rush through the cleaning process and fail to rinse the carpet properly. Again, this will leave a soapy residue and attract dirt more quickly.
You work too hard for your money. A properly trained and experienced company like Guardian Carpet Cleaning know how to properly clean your carpet and ensure they do not have soapy residue. We utilize a PH neutralizing rinse to ensure there is zero residue. This keeps your carpet cleaner longer and speeds the drying process. Your carpets deserve the best and so do you.
