Berber carpet is very expensive but gives a beautiful look to your home. What the manufacturers fail to tell you, it’s one of the hardest fibers to maintain and clean! Berber is constructed with twists, loops, and lumps in the weave. Vacuuming can be a challenge because it’s difficult to extract the dirt that finds its way to the bottom of the fibers. McCreary’s Healthy Homes make it look easy to clean with our special equipment, but it requires more time than other carpet. When cleaning you should hire the best carpet cleaning Grand Ledge MI.
Make sure that you are vacuuming daily. Using a vacuum with a beater bar will destroy your carpet. Using just a powerful suction is the most efficient and effective way to maintain. Vacuums with a beater bar can snag the fiber and start pulling it out.
Most carpet, we would recommend 6-18 months hiring a professional carpet cleaning company. Berber carpet, should be cleaned every 6 months. The “hot water extraction” method is powerful and water based reaching temperatures up to 220 degrees.
Berber carpet doesn’t like to let go of stains easy. It holds dirt, wicks water, and if not properly dried, you will not get the results you desire. When cleaning all carpet one of the key factors is extracting as much water as you can after the clean. Berber and moisture do not mesh well together, it can cause mildew growth at the base.
If you’re thinking about renting a carpet shampooer, please erase that option out of your brain. Soap/Detergent leaves a residue and a Rug Doctor does not rinse and extract to get it out. It will appear that your carpet is clean until a few weeks go by and everything is sticking like glue.
