Accidents happen.

No matter how hard you try to keep your Media, PA, home perfectly clean, life will inevitably cause something to leave a hard-to-remove mark.

How you react to these situations-such as what you do when there’s an accident on your carpet-can mean the difference between a corrected mistake and a permanent eye sore.

Today we’re going to talk about some typical carpet cleaning mistakes. The good news is that none of these mistakes are irreversible. Our multi-step carpet cleaning process will assess, treat, and eradicate even the deepest stains on your carpet.

Read the following list of carpet cleaning mistakes. If you’ve made any of them, consider giving us a call to see how we can help.

  • You rub in stains – A typical reaction to spilling something on your carpet is to aggressively try to remove the stain by rubbing back and forth on it. Depending on the substance spilled, this type of aggressive scrubbing motion can push the stain deeper into the fibers of your carpet. Often, blotting works much better. If the stain can’t be removed with blotting, it’s time to call a professional.
  • You used a mismatched cleaning solution – Not all carpet cleaning solutions are created equal. You might want to tackle carpet cleaning yourself if it’s in need of a revamp, but if you fail to spot test an area of your carpet beforehand, you could be in for a surprise. Our carpet cleaning technicians have the knowledge to provide the accurate solution your carpet needs.
  • You tried do-it-yourself options without thinking them through – Maybe you tried to use carpet deodorizer to make it feel fresh again. Did you know that most vacuums aren’t powerful enough to remove all the deodorizer from the carpet? Ironically, you may have added more debris to your carpet in the process. Other methods like renting a carpet cleaning machine can work, but they can also have a negative impact if used incorrectly.
  • You didn’t call a professional – Look, we understand that do-it-yourself options can work. We also understand that you’re a busy Media, PA, homeowner doing the best you can to keep your home clean and manage everything else that comes with home ownership.
