Wiping The Dust From Some Carpet Cleaning Misconceptions

Dear Francine,

I am an avid follower of your blog, Francine, but I wish you could come over and talk some sense into my friend Juanita. She has been my best friend for over twenty years, but I can’t seem to talk sense to Juanita when it comes to her carpets. She says that the only time your carpets need to be cleaned professionally is either when five years have gone by or there’s not enough furniture in the house to cover the stains. Could you talk some sense into her?

-My Carpets Look Excellent And Neat

Thanks so much for your question, MCLEAN. Glad you are following our blog! If your friend is around, have her read today’s entry from this point on…

It is a common misconception that you should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet. In fact, there is an easy way to feel the difference. All you have to do is to walk barefoot on your carpet. A regularly cleaned and maintained carpet will feel as new. As such, your carpet will be as soft, supportive, and comfortable as you remember from when you first bought it.

If you have not been regularly cleaning your carpet, you will notice that the carpet can feel somewhat rough or even sharp to the touch. Your bare feet aren’t lying to you. This happens as a result of dust, dirt, and other detritus being rubbed into the fibers of your carpet each time it’s being stepped on. Vacuuming and spot-stain cleaning can help, but you will need a professional Dry Foam cleaning to keep your carpets feeling, looking, and smelling fresh.
