From time to time we are bound to spill something on our carpet or upholstery. Accidents do happen after all. However, it may be your first instinct to run to the cabinet or closet and grab something to remove the stain as quickly as possible. We would suggest you look more closely at that carpet cleaner or stain remover before you apply it though. Those cleaning products that swear they will take care of your stains may be doing more harm than good after all. Let’s find out how.

  1. They Can Cause Color Loss
    These cleaning products are extremely harsh and contain chemicals that are not designed to protect the color of your carpet or upholstery. You stand a very good chance of doing permanent damage.  
  2. They Will Attract Dirt In The Long Run
    Most of the cleaners you can purchase in the grocery or convenience store are detergent based. Because you simply place the cleaner on the carpet and are unable to wash it away, the detergent remains in the carpet or upholstery which will undoubtedly cause that spot to attract dust over time. This is the equivalent of washing your hair in the shower but never rinsing out the shampoo. In short, if the desired result is cleanliness, you are not accomplishing it.

The bottom line? If you want stains on your carpet or upholstery taken care of the right way, call a professional cleaning company. FreshStart Cleaning Service can make your carpet and upholstery look like new every time!
