Carpet cleaning can be a long process if you choose the DIY route. From moving furniture to scrubbing spots and constantly emptying soiled water, you waste the better part of a day only to get a carpet that is half as clean as the pros can achieve. Professional carpet cleaners in Buffalo, NY speed up this process and provide quality results that you can see and feel when you walk on the revived surface and breathe in cleaner air. Read further to learn about the different methods used by Buffalo, NY carpet cleaning services and why hiring one is the way to go.

Why do I need to hire a professional carpet cleaning service in Buffalo, NY?


Hiring a professional Buffalo, NY carpet cleaner will save you time and the hassle of having to do it yourself (and money in the long run!) But why are the pros so much more effective? Not only do they have the proper knowledge of specific carpet fibers, they have the right equipment for the job. The machines you can rent or buy for household use do not come close to the high-powered equipment that quality carpet cleaning companies use, which means your results will be far from what they can achieve. The pros can also clean the spots that you didn’t even know needed cleaning, as well as tackle almost every stain (bleach being the exception). While you may be able to achieve a visually clean carpet on your own, the things lingering beneath the surface are what can cause health issues and resurface shortly after you think you’re done with the job. This includes dirt, dander, bacteria and allergens that all live deep in the fibers of your carpet.

What is the best method to clean carpets?


The best method for cleaning carpet depends on the type of fiber and weave you have. A professional carpet cleaner in Buffalo, NY will be able to identify the most effective method for your home, but it doesn’t hurt to educate yourself about the various processes in the meantime.

  • Steam Carpet Cleaning - Steam cleaning is the most common method to clean carpets. It’s actually not steam, but rather hot-water extraction. The water never reaches the temperature it needs to create steam, as that’s much too hot for most household carpets and can cause damage. Instead the hot water is brought up to about 140 degrees, hot enough to kill odor-causing bacteria and allergens and loosen stubborn dirt that can then be vacuumed up by high-powered machines that most carpet cleaners use. It can take anywhere from 2 to 24 hours for a freshly steam cleaned carpet to fully dry, but typically they are ready to walk on in 6 to 12 hours.

  • Dry Carpet Cleaning- Contrary to what it sounds like, the dry method actually uses water, just a lot less of it. Dry, or very low moisture, cleaning is called this because the carpets themselves dry much, much faster than the steam cleaning method and are safe to use shortly after — think 2 to 6 hours instead of 6 to 24 hours. This process typically involves a pre-treatment that is brushed into the fibers to attract and bind the dirt, making it easier to vacuum up with less water. More and more carpet cleaning services are adopting this method due to popular demand.

  • Green Carpet Cleaning- The green in this case means that soaps and solutions that can be potentially harmful to the environment and your family are not being used. This method often uses an encapsulation crystallizing polymer which helps bind with dirt to form pieces that can be easily vacuumed up. Some green methods involve vinegar as well, a known natural cleaner that lots of homeowners use across their house to safely tackle dirt and grime. Make sure the Buffalo, NY carpet cleaner you are hiring is green certified if you are interested in using an all-natural, safe solution.

It’s best to have your carpets cleaned every 12 to 18 months by local carpet cleaners (more often if you have kids or pets), but there are a few things you can and should do between cleanings to keep them looking their best. First, vacuum often to lessen the dirt and dander that get ground deep into your carpets. Second, spot clean as needed to so stains don’t have the chance to permanently set in. Lastly, minimize tracked in dirt by removing your shoes when you enter your home, and by investing in a quality doormat to catch the big stuff before it makes it to your carpets.
