DIY Rental Carpet Cleaner Machines Leave Carpet Wet in Fullerton, CA; Carpet Shrinkage, Browning, Odors & More

Rental machines just aren’t as powerful as commercial grade truck mounted extraction machines used by professionals. Carpets left too wet are a problem for anyone who buys or rents a plug in machine. When this happens, you may have mold and mildew problems and end up spending more in the long run needing to call the professionals in. Using a rental machine from the grocery store isn’t a good idea. It’s also not a good idea to hire just anyone to clean your carpets. Inexperienced or untrained individuals will sometimes use sub-standard equipment and do it incorrectly. Carpet that is left too wet after cleaning causes more problems than just longer drying times and inconvenience.

Problems Caused When Carpets Are Too Wet After Cleaning

Carpet Shrinkage. Your carpet can shrink when it’s left too wet. This happens when there’s too much water used in the machine or it’s just not powerful enough to remove the water during the cleaning and extraction process. The machine could also be used incorrectly or not set up right and different carpets sometimes need different methods of cleaning. Minor shrinkage can be re-stretched back into place but if there’s a lot of shrinkage the carpet will need to be replaced. Professionals take all the steps they can to avoid any shrinkage, but it’s a good idea to make sure the company you use is insured in the event there is a problem.
Carpet Odors. When carpets stay wet for too long they can develop an offensive musty smell. The smell is caused by bacteria that is developing. This can be rectified but should be avoided from the beginning by hiring experienced carpet cleaners. If you really want to do it yourself, you need to make sure the home has good air flow and ventilation before and after cleaning. Use fans and open windows and doors to help the drying process. If you think your carpet is still too wet after several hours, then you need to get experts in to get it dry or you run the risk of bacteria and mold setting in.
Carpet Browning. Wool carpets are more susceptible to browning but can appear on any carpet and will appear after the cleaning process is done. It happens when soil or prior spills wick back up because of over-wetting. Rest assured these spots aren’t permanent. Professional carpet cleaning technicians have the experience and knowledge to remove the spots and prevent future problems.
