Why Vacuuming Isn't Enough to Clean Your Carpet

Posted on 4/4/2016 by BISSELL Rental
So you have a weekly or monthly cleaning routine that includes vacuuming your carpet. It’s enough to get your carpet clean, keep it fresh and adhere to any warranties, right? Unfortunately, vacuuming alone won’t do the job.
Vacuuming is great for removing superficial dirt and other items and should be included in any regular cleaning routine. But vacuuming alone, without any deeper cleaning measures, doesn’t reach the toughest stains and allergens in your carpet: those that reside deep within the fibers. To reach those stains, it’s important to deep clean your carpet on a regular basis.
Your carpet is one of the biggest dust and dirt collectors. Vacuuming alone can’t reach within those fibers, and even the best vacuums can leave dirt and stains behind. That’s why it’s important to stick to a regular deep cleaning schedule in addition to regular vacuuming.
Why Vacuuming Isn't Enough

Deep cleaning uses heated water to extract your carpet's dirt, debris, and odors. Even if you vacuum regularly, you’ll be amazed at how much dirt is pulled out of your carpet with a deep cleaning machine. By using a deep cleaner like the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine®, your carpet can easily tackle hidden, hard-to-remove dirt, stains and odors from your carpet. It can also:
  • Remove allergens that are trapped deep in the fibers of your carpet
  • Remove stains like tracks of dirt, animal accidents, and microscopic particles
  • Prevent future stains (if used with the right carpet cleaning formula)
  • Make your carpet look good longer and even revitalize your most heavily trafficked areas
  • Help you adhere to your carpet’s warranties
  • Help prolong the life of your carpet 

Deep cleaning your carpet should be an important part of a household cleaning routine. In fact, we recommend you deep clean your carpet at least once or twice a year, and more often if you have pets or young children.
