Is It Good To Stretch The Carpet Before Cleaning?

If you don’t know whether you should clean your carpet first then stretch it, or the other way around, stretch it first before getting professionals for carpet cleaning, then this article is for you. We’ll be talking about why it’s a good idea to stretch your carpet. This is something that can easily be overlooked and neglected, but it does help prolong the life and beauty of your carpet.

Is It Good To Stretch The Carpet Before Cleaning?

Cleaning wrinkled carpets

One of the hardest carpets to clean is a loose one because when you try to vacuum or sweep the dirt, the carpet will start to bunch up. This will make it almost impossible for you to clean it properly, and you will only end up getting frustrated. When you hire professionals to clean, they will also get the same frustration and struggles even if they are already experts. They will try, but the ripples will keep them from giving a deep and thorough cleaning.

Why stretching your carpet is recommended

I’m sure you’ve noticed that when you leave the carpet unattended for a long time, it will begin to have some issues including wrinkles. A lot of people think that they should not be concerned about the wrinkles and that it will not bother them in the long run. Some people may also think that having the carpet repaired will cost them too much, or it will turn out to be very difficult. Regardless of their reasons, they will always end up having to repair or replace the carpet after some time. If you only decide to stretch the carpet after some time, you will start to see lines because the creases have been left there for too long that they already made a mark. These lines will only disappear if you have your carpet cleaned right after stretching restoring your carpet to great condition again.

Make sure to stretch it before cleaning

If you want your carpet to get thorough cleaning, make sure to stretch it first. All the dirt and bacteria hidden in the creases will easily be eliminated. You will not have to worry about wrinkles developing again because the stretching and cleaning process will aid in preventing bunching. The lifespan of your carpet will increase so you can use it longer.
