Carpet cleaning is the subject of much confusion with consumers. Mountain Country Carpet Care has probably heard it all from customers since we've been in business for so long serving Bozeman and all of Gallatin County, but here are the top 5 carpet cleaning misconceptions we hear on a regular basis.

Cleaning carpeting too often can ruin it.

Really? Did you just ask that? This is a misconception we hear frequently. Dirt left in carpeting breaks down carpet fibers and accelerates wear. Every time you walk on your carpet, dirt cuts into the carpet fibers, causing it to wear out faster. A dirty carpet will not last nearly as long as a clean carpet. And while vacuuming helps by itself, it’s simply not enough. The longer you wait to have your carpet cleaned, the more damage you do to your carpet and the faster it wears out.

The only reason to clean carpets is to get out the dirt.

How are your allegeries doing? Did you ever open up your windors or doors? There are so many other containiments entering your home besides dirt. Pollens, fungus, bacteria, air pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and hundreds of other chemicals. When you and your family members come into your home, you carry those pollens, bacteria and chemicals in your hair and on your skin, clothing and shoes. Not surprisingly, all those chemicals, pollens and bacteria wind up in your carpet.

If you have allergies, asthma, emphysema, or other breathing problems one major source of your problem could be the pollens, fungus, and chemicals in your carpet.

Of course getting your carpets cleaned will get rid of dirt, but another important reason to clean your carpet is to get rid of all the other containments to help you and your family stay healthy.

Steam cleaning your carpeting will cause mold.

Mold is only going to grow where there is no air movement to help dry out the moisture. With steam cleaning, water does not go beyond the backing of the carpeting or into the pad, which means that there are no conditions for mold to grow. Only in extreme cases where a cleaner leaves the carpet extremely wet can this happen. A professional carpet cleaning company like Mountain Country Carpet Care utilizes the proper cleaning equipment and techniques will remove all excess moisture.

Carpets will be left wet for days.

When carpet is cleaned it is in most cases dry within a few hours. The time of year and weather conditions might slow the drying process, but you are not going to have wet carpet for days.
