Why Carpet Cleaning Isn’t a DIY Project

Don’t try this at home! How many times have you heard that warning from everyone, including carpet stores?

Good carpet stores, like Bockrath Flooring & Rugs of Dayton, Ohio, don’t just offer a large product inventory, but also provides services, like cleaning, binding or repairing.

Here are three things the professional carpet cleaner will not do:

Use the wrong soap. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing, and using the wrong detergent can damage fibers, or even be ineffective for removing a particular type of stain.

Since we’re one of the carpet stores that carry a big inventory of all brands, types and styles, we really know our stuff, and that includes knowing what to use where and when. The wrong detergent can cause a lot of harm, and our carpet cleaner is always certified and experienced.

While Bockrath Flooring & Rugs of Dayton, Ohio is always happy to see you, we think probably the last thing you need is to go out shopping at carpet stores again to spend money to replace or repair damage, caused by something as simple as using the wrong detergent.

Using too much detergent and not rinsing well. This one is almost a given when it comes to some of the DIY wet approaches. One thing that can happen, is that chemicals stick around, affecting your home’s air quality, and irritating those with allergies or asthma. In fact, even if you don’t have those problems, you can still get runny eyes and coughs. I was taking care of someone’s dog and he was coughing and gagging; come to find out, his “doggie mother” tried to clean it herself the day before.

The worst-case-scenario? An expert carpet cleaner knows that using too much detergent and not rinsing, will make it become a dirt magnet, so it will have the exact opposite effect of what you’re trying to achieve:

Saving the Best for Last: Reason #3 Why You Need a Professional Carpet Cleaner
Dayton, Ohio is often listed as one of the best places to live, and carpet stores like Bockrath Flooring & Rug love to encourage people to live here. It’s considered one of the best-kept-secrets of great places to live.

One thing that’s always mentioned is our Oregon District, which is filled with live music and great food and drink. When someone thinks of a state in Pacific Northwest, like Oregon, the mind automatically goes to images like environmentally-friendly, clean, fresh air, foliage, and the sights and smells of beautiful flower gardens.

Your home won’t smell so pretty, or be as pollution-free, if you don’t dry your floor fast. Mold and mildew start growing in as little as 12 hours, and the carpet is usually soaked right down to the padding.

Our carpet cleaners use powerful drying machines and fans that get the water out fast.
