WHAT IS CARPET BROWNING?
We often hear people complain after hiring other Bloomington carpet cleaners that their carpet turned brown or yellow after the company left. This is called carpet browning or carpet yellowing and it is a common occurrence when carpet gets too wet.
Local carpet cleaning services that use traditional methods for cleaning often use too much water in their process. This is common for steam cleaning and rental machines.
Bloomington steam cleaners use soap and detergents in their carpet cleaning. The soap then needs to be rinsed from the carpet and that requires gallons and gallons of water. The water permeates deep into the carpet fibers and pad. The pad absorbs the water and then pushes it up to the surface through evaporation. This then causes the carpet browning soon after an appointment is over.
The occurrence of carpet browning is even more common with natural fibers, including jute and wool. Be sure to hire a carpet cleaning company in Bloomington that is WoolSafe® certified if you have a wool carpet. Do not attempt to clean natural carpet fibers on your own.
You can avoid carpet browning if you hire a low-moisture carpet cleaning service in Bloomington. Low moisture means less chance for saturation of the carpet or soaking of the carpet pad.
Chem-Dry of Bloomington offers carpet cleaning that uses one-fifth of the water that steam cleaning services use. We don’t need to use as much water because we don’t use soap for our process. This produces superior results that are drier and healthier.
