Having your carpets professionally cleaned by XL Cleaners Liverpool will help keep them looking their best for many years to come.

However, homeowners are reluctant to get their carpets cleaned due to some myths and misconceptions that carpet cleaning can cause.

So today we are going answer the most common ones and put your mind at ease.

Does it take a long time for my carpets to dry after they’ve been professionally cleaned?

The short answer is no. An experienced carpet cleaning company will use machinery that won’t over-wet your carpets and they should be pretty much dry within just a couple of hours.

This is the most common myth in carpet cleaning. Unfortunately, this is due to there being carpet cleaning companies out there who sadly use underpowered equipment and shoddy cleaning processes

Will my carpet get dirty quicker after they’re cleaned?

This is another misconception.

If a carpet is cleaned using the correct equipment, chemicals, and process, then this most definitely is not the case.

The final result will be down to the carpet cleaning professional using the correct machinery and cleaning solutions.

Having my carpets cleaned too often, will it damage or “wear” them out

Your carpets should be professionally cleaned on a regular basis.

This common misconception that having your carpets regularly cleaned will “wear” them out is just not true.

Remember professional carpet cleaning removes the ingrained soils and grit that cause damage to fibres and ultimately prolongs the life of your carpets and rugs.

Aren’t all carpet cleaning processes the same?

When researching carpet cleaning it may appear that all carpet cleaners and their processes are the same.

However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Dry carpet cleaning methods can be effective for light maintenance cleans and some commercial carpets, however, to get the best results, make sure you look for a carpet cleaning company that uses the Hot Water Extraction method, and preferably one that uses a truck mount carpet cleaning machine, like us.

This will ensure the best possible outcome and drying times possible.


So, there you have it, some common myths and mistakes have been busted. Hopefully, you will have enjoyed this little read and next time you are looking to have your carpets cleaned professionally or you are attempting a small stain on your own, you will feel  more confident in doing so,
