Carpet cleaning, whether it is done by the person who owns the carpet or a professional carpet cleaning service certainly has pitfalls and traps to avoid in order to make sure that no damage will arise from performing what is expected to be a help for the carpeting.

The most important situation to avoid for all homes and businesses in the Boston area is using too much water or wet cleaning solutions. Excessive over watering not only takes a tremendous amount of time to dry, but in most cases will go directly into the carpets padding making it more difficult, if not almost impossible to tell if moisture is still underneath and resulting in mildew and mold starting to grow.

Carpet can start to shrink with over wetting causing repair or replacement to become necessary.

If the flooring underneath the carpets is made of wood or excessive water finds its way to other parts of the home or office in Boston that are made of wood a warping of your floors is likely.

Over wetting can also cause a bleaching effect on the color of your carpet and browning can appear as it attempts to dry.

If mold and mildew start to grow the odor will be a tell tale sign o this event taking shape. Any residue left behind from too much water can also present a problem of odors when it has been improperly cleaned.

When putting your furniture and belongings back in their place you will want to be sure that all areas are completely dry otherwise you can develop rust stains from any metal touching the carpeting and wood can contribute stains to damp or wet carpeting.

One of the major carpet cleaning mistakes to avoid is to let any chemical build up or residue remain. These chemicals can be harmful to most everyone but present a particular problem for those who suffer from allergies and asthma. Residue is easy to leave behind no matter if there is over wetting or not and you will want to be sure that this is as important a thing to watch for as preventing mildew and mold in you Boston residence or workplace.

You can care for your carpets on your own or simply call and consult with a local carpet cleaning company but you must always remain diligent about proper carpet cleaning being performed.

Be sure to check with the manufacturer of the carpet you have to find the best and correct cleaning techniques and be certain to leave any areas being cleaned well ventilated, as this well help to lessen the drying time.

Make certain that after carpet cleaning and care you provide ample time to either be away from the home or business or to keep the residents or employees out. If the carpets are still wet, even if they are close to being dry a small number of people walking on them can make them even dirtier than before the cleaning took place.

For any other information prior to cleaning be sure to consult with a skilled carpet cleaner if you have other questions or concerns.
