How to Clean Berber Carpets

Updated on January 5, 2008

The importance of keeping your carpets clean. Whether you should clean your carpets yourself or hire a professional.

If you want to get the best use out of your carpets, it is important to keep them in good condition by cleaning them frequently. As you use your carpets, you do not realize that they are constantly being filled with stains and small particles of dirt and dust. You can keep your carpets looking new and lasting longer if you get them cleaned routinely. When you compare the cost of replacing your carpet, you will realize that cleaning your carpets is a small expense to get extra long wear out of them.

Choosing the right carpet cleaning service is important. You don't want to choose a company that is only going to do half a job. If you get proper references, you should be able to find a carpet cleaning service that will promise what they deliver and do a good job. Berber carpet cleaning service is one such service that delivers on their promise of good service. If you have allergies to dust and dirt, you should make sure you get your carpet cleaned frequently to keep your symptoms down. If you want, you can clean your carpet yourself.

There are arguments for and against cleaning your own carpet. It cost more to have your carpet cleaned by a professional, and there is no guarantee that you will get a good carpet cleaner. If you have someone who is not conscientious about it, you may end up with your padding and floors damaged, and your carpet will still not be clean. Try getting your money back from a company like that. Of course, if you hire a reputable professional, your carpet will be undamaged and look like new when they are done. A reputable company will guarantee their work.

If you want to take on this job yourself you will definitely save money. However, if you rent a carpet cleaning machine and you end up making a mistake, you will end up losing money when your carpet, underlayment and floor are all ruined. (And you still won't have a clean carpet!)

If you have carpets made of natural fibers such as silk or wool, you have to make sure you use the best carpet cleaning method. If you are going to do it yourself, first make sure to thoroughly vacuum up AL loose particles and dirt. Follow the instructions on the machine very carefully, and make sure you measure the cleaner and water properly. A very common mistake with do it yourself carpet cleaning is that the solution is not completely extracted. Leaving this residue will make the carpet get dirty again quickly, and it will also break down the fibers of the carpet.
