“Carpets shouldn’t be cleaned, it will wash the strength out of them”
This is FALSE! Most manufacturers recommend that carpets are cleaned every 12-18 months by a qualified technician. Allowing soil to build up will significantly reduce the life of the carpet. And its not only dust which accumulates in your carpets; there is also bacteria, pollen, human skin cells, pet dander, food crumbs and insect remains. Regular thorough vacuuming once or twice per week a and professional cleaning every 12-18 months is essential.
