Cleaning your carpet frequently is very important to keep it stain-free and hygienic. Regular vacuuming does a great job in blowing out the dust and dirt that accumulates on it every day. Also, spot removal of stains will keep it stain-free for years. However, even if you take all possible precautions, your carpet will start looking dull and dirty soon. The best thing that you can do to retain its new and spotless look is to hire professional carpet cleaning Sydney agencies like us.

Many people however, prefer cleaning their carpet themselves. Although this is a great way to minimize your expenses, doing it the wrong way may cost you dearly. We at Spot On Carpet Cleaning, one of the most experienced carpet cleaning Sydney agencies are listing down some common mistakes that self-cleaners frequently make.
Using more carpet shampoo than required
Using an excessive amount of shampoo is one of biggest mistakes that most home owners make. They feel that large quantities of shampoo will help them remove the stains and dust easily. If you are someone who uses more than the required quantity of cleaner, be aware. It will be very difficult to rinse off the excessive shampoo. If left, the shampoo deposits will look like whitish patches, thereby making your carpet look odd. Further, the deposits will be sticky and will hold up dust and dirt. This way, your carpet will start looking dull and lifeless.
Using untested carpet cleaning solution
Ask any carpet cleaning Sydney expert and he will be able to narrate you stories of home owners who uses the wrong product for cleaning their upholstery, thereby landing up in trouble. There are tons of carpet cleaning solutions available in the market but not all of them are worth using. Further, each type of carpet has a specific requirement and only a specific product should be used for it. Don’t just buy any carpet cleaning product. Refer carpet manufacturers’ instruction or help or ask a genuine carpet cleaning Sydney agency like us. We also strongly suggest you to do a patch test before applying the solution on the entire carpet. This way, you will be able to detect if the solution is suitable for your carpet or not.
Over-wetting the carpet
Using the right quantity of water is very important for preventing any water related damage to your carpet. Most homeowners cannot determine the amount of water they should use and therefore, we suggest you to hire experts like us. Using excessive quantity of water may cause discoloration. Further, it will be difficult to dry out a very wet carpet. The more your carpet stays wet, the more will be chances of damage. Further, excessive moisture may lead to development of mold and create health hazards for you.
If you want to keep your carpet looking like new for years, make sure you do not commit the above mentioned mistakes. We suggest you to get your carpet professionally cleaned twice a year.
