Mistake #1.Only using a deodorising powder

Sometimes, you are too eager make your home smell nice. Only using a deodorizing powder without cleaning your carpet is a mistake. Yes a deodorising powder can eliminate foul odours but it won’t remove the dirt dust or what is causing the smell in the first place.

Mistake #2.Over wetting your carpet

Before you use any cleaning product, be sure to read the label carefully. Make sure to do a test patch on a hidden part of your carpet. This will prevent you from making an irreversible mistake. Don’t over wet your carpet especially in winter as it will be difficult to dry and could cause the backing of your carpet to rot. Be very careful with indoor plants that they are not over watered and leave your carpet wet.

Mistake #3.Waiting too long to have your carpets cleaned

Don’t leave it too late to call in the professionals; it is false economy to hold out. Call for help as soon as possible when spills occur. If your carpet is showing sign of becoming dirty, get it cleaned. Professional cleaning will protect your carpet.
