4 Common Carpet Cleaning Mistakes (and How to Avoid Them!)

Are you making these common carpet cleaning mistakes? As experts in carpet cleaning in Sykesville, MD, we’ve seen it all. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you avoid these pitfalls and keep your carpets looking their best.


First, let’s talk about vacuuming. We all know it’s important, but do you know why? Vacuuming removes dirt and grime that can damage your carpet fibers and affect your indoor air quality. We recommend vacuuming weekly, or more often if you have pets or high foot traffic.

High-Traffic Areas

Speaking of high traffic areas, they need extra care. Consider adding a rug or rotating your existing one to distribute the wear evenly. Again, regular vacuuming and our carpet protectant can help these areas withstand stains and damage. You should also consider professional area rug cleaning for your rugs in high traffic areas.

Stain Removal

Next, let’s talk about stains. Instead of scrubbing aggressively, gently blot the stain with a white rag. And if the stain persists, don’t hesitate to call our professional carpet cleaners. We’ve seen DIY attempts gone wrong too many times, and we’re here to save your carpet with our specialty stain removal.

Finally, don’t forget about professional carpet cleaning from Bearinger Chem-Dry. Vacuuming alone can’t remove embedded dirt and dust. Our professional cleaning service can revive your carpet, even if it doesn’t look dirty. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes.
