  1. Steam cleaning will cause mold and mildew. It is not normal to have your carpets soaked for days. If you hire a company that makes your carpet wet for days, this could cause mold and mildew to grow and it is not normal. Be sure to give the company a call and let them know so that they can come remedy the problem before mold can grow. A reputable company will leave your carpets wet but they should dry within 12 hours. You will be able to use your carpets like normal and they will be clean and dry in very little time at all.
  2. A typical stain remover from the grocery store will remove a stain. This can actually cause your stain to set and be around forever. In fact, some stain removers actually attract more dirt and grime to them like a magnet which will make your carpet appear even dirtier. If you have a stain, it is best to use home remedies such as baking soda, dawn soap, or a mixture of vinegar and water. They will help remove stains without being harsh on your carpet.
  3. It is possible to get your carpets clean throughout your entire house for less than $100! This is simply not true. Be sure to read the fine print as there are typically stipulations that make the price more than $100. Be sure check the dimension of the rooms that are included for $100. Typically the smallest rooms in the house are included and additional rooms are more. Another thing to look out for is the optional add-on services that will cause your costs to skyrocket. Examples of these add-ons include deodorizers and stain guards. These additions will cost extra and are typically commissioned upsells for the technician.
  4. Having my carpets cleaned professionally will shrink my carpet. Most carpets are made of synthetic fibers that will not shrink when steam cleaned. The professional carpet cleaning company will test areas of your carpet to make sure that their service will work well and will not cause any damage to your carpet.

As with anything, there are myths that are typically dispelled. Carpet cleaning is no different. There are many great advantages to getting your carpet steam cleaned by a professional and there are very little negatives. The best course of action to ensure that you are getting the best deal is to read the fine print and ask questions before booking. When the technician arrives, again ask questions and before the service has started, make sure you are fully aware of the price you have committed to paying.
