Carpet Cleaning Tulsa | Episode 334
Speaker 1: (00:01)
Carpet cleaning Tulsa. We are complete carpet. This is episode 334. Uh, just we’re going to talk this time about maintenance of your carpet. The carbon fiber we get asked often, how often should I clean my carpet. And I think the base of that question is more, why should you clean your carpet? If you understand why you’re needing to get your carpet cleaned, then you’ll understand when it should be cleaned. If you give it just an arbitrary number, whether it be two months or six months or 12 months or 18 months, then you’re trying to generically give across the board advice to something that’s more specific of why you’re needing your carpets cleaned in the first place. We’ve got some customers that have had as clean the carpet, then we turn around and cleaned them again in a month because they’ve had a why something has gotten into the carpet that need to do.
Speaker 1: (00:44)
And then they turned around and were able to go another six months or a year without needing another carpet cleaning because that why never happened again for them. And, uh, the why’s that happened for carpets are very differently for each house in each person. Depending on what your situation is, you might have a messy teenager that may be your why, who’s, you know, just brings in different sources of dirty the football player or maybe as a soccer player, uh, I’ve got all of your sports or just somebody who likes chips, a Gamer who just eats their food, doesn’t pay attention while they’re playing their games. Uh, maybe a young teenage girl who does a lot of makeup arts and crafts things in their room and so there they’ve got their own source or a placement of dirt coming into the house. Carpet cleaning Tulsa is in our fiber.
Speaker 1: (01:30)
One of the things that we’ve, um, tried to help people to identify is where is the source of dirt coming from? If you’d never walk on the carpet again, it never needs to be cleaned again because it’s not got any new dirt attracted to it. Also, it’s never had anybody walk on it to rub that dirt in. And that’s really why you’re needing to get the carpets cleaned as something is holding the dirt in place. If you can vacuum that heard off the carpet, then you’re doing just fine. Uh, it’s when you need us, when the carpet now is sticky and the dirt will no longer vacuum off or something has gotten into the carpet that you can’t get out of the carpet. Um, we get in there and use a thorough hot water extraction rinse to rinse it out so it’s no longer sticking, getting you back to a nice fluffy soft carpet.
Speaker 1: (02:09)
Again, the carpet fibers themselves can rub against each other for a long extended period of time. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998 I’ve given this example many times. The customer is about how you can take your hands and rub them back and forth and kind of generate a little bit of heat as you stay warm next to a fire and you can kind of just keep rubbing your hands back and forth and warming next to the fire and it’ll, you know, just keep that a little bit of friction between your skin, but you can do it for probably 30 minutes, an hour, quite a long time before you start to rubber blister into your hands because your hands are used to rubbing against themselves. Now, if you took and covered your hands with salt or sand and then tried to run back and forth while standing in for that fire, you probably all going to make about maybe 15 2030 seconds at the most before your hands are gonna be rubbed raw because now you’ve added in something that is stronger or tougher than the, than the strength of your skin.
Speaker 1: (02:57)
Carpets are just the same way. We dust the universal sandpaper and it can rub and really break down the fiber a lot faster than if it was just the fiber rubbing against itself. The fiber rubbing as itself can last a long time. I’ve cleaned carpets that were up to 25, 30, even 40 years old. Uh, but I’ve also cleaned other carpets that were only three to five years old and they were completely worn out. They just had as much work done to them as they could possibly take carpet cleaning, Tulsa’s and our fiber. And one of the things we notice is that if you allow the dirt to stay in the carpet and then continue to walk on it, then you start compounding the effect that it has on the carpet. Now the dirt is creating a lot of friction on the fibers of the carpet, like little a razor blade kind of dicing up the inside of the fibers.
Speaker 1: (03:44)
Now they will Matt, and then we’ll fluff and they’ll bloom quicker than they were supposed to and the carpet starts to flatten out and then the carpet starts mixing together and then it kind of grinds the dirt into the fiber instead of just on the fiber. And that’s where you really want to have somebody coming in to clean the carpets on a more regular basis. I’ve got some customers that have used us every day or every week or every month, every year, coming on a regular basis. Whenever the carpets needed that next level of cleaning to remove the sandpaper, remove the dust, remove the debris that had stuck to the carpet that no longer could be vacuumed off. Um, I’ve got one customer uses every month for, um, almost eight to 10 years in a row, and the carpet’s has looked great the entire time. Carpet cleaning Tulsa
Speaker 1: (04:24)
So it’s not over. Watering can be a problem if you’re not using a proper chemical using a proper machine. Uh, but as long as you have a reputable company, the number of carpet cleaning times you have will not affect the carpet because not using any type of abrasive hard chemicals and it’s not using any type of hard, um, uh, friction brushes as it does the cleaning process. Vacuuming is also safe to do in your carbon, but you don’t want to vacuum too terribly often so you don’t end up, uh, over fluffing or over raking the fibers of carpet, carpet cleaning. On the other hand, does it use any type of aggression, agitation, so it just is purely rinsing through with water, the fiber so it won’t hurt the fiber in that way actually helps the buyer by keeping it fresh and healthy all the time.

Speaker 1: (05:09)
I will talk in the next episode about, um, making sure that you keep your vacuum in good health, but as long as you keep the contaminant and debris and particles out of the carpet, the carpet itself can last a long time and look like new for quite a long time. Most carpet warranties are based around having a regular cleaning schedule and they typically will require at least a 12 month cleaning to keep the main manufacturer’s warranty on the regular carpet. So you know that at least once every 12 months, maybe once every six months or once every three months, just depending on how much dirt is in your carpet.
