Are your parents and grandparents constantly in your ear about how you should clean your home? Have you been subjected your whole life to the cleaning myths that have been passed down from generation to generation? Well, it’s time to put these myths to rest and clear them up once and for all. As the carpet cleaning experts, you can consider Zerorez the “myth busters”!

Myth Buster #1: “Cleaning my carpets will make them shrink.”

Your carpets will not shrink if you clean them. We repeat, your carpets will not shrink – that is unless you or your carpet cleaner leaves the carpet extremely wet! Most professionals will not let this happen, but always make sure to check the carpet for extreme dampness before the cleaning company leaves your home. With our carpet cleaning process, our Empowered Water has a very fast dry time so you don’t have to fear this myth!

Myth Buster #2: “You only need to clean your carpets every few years.”

Plain and simple, your carpets should be professionally cleaned at least once a year. The reason for this is that carpets hide dirt, debris, germs, and other toxins.

Not only can this cause major health hazards such as severe allergies, skin irritation, and respiratory issues, it can also cause major wear and tear on your carpet by losing fiber protection and color.

Myth Buster #3: “If I have my own carpet cleaner, I do not need to hire a professional.”

For routine cleaning, this is definitely the case. However, most home carpet cleaners do not have the suction power to remove stubborn stains and residue that commercial carpet cleaners have.

Myth Buster #4: “I only need to clean the carpets if they look bad.”

Dirt, debris, and residue that are embedded in your carpets are not always visible. But trust us, they are there. So even if the carpets look okay, it’s still a good idea to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. You’d be amazed at how dirty that water from seemingly clean carpets can be!

Myth Buster #5: “All professional carpet cleaners are the same.”
