Is It A Good Idea To Vacuum Carpet After Professional Cleaning? | BCS Cleaning Specialists

This is a great question, and one not many people think of. We’re always for vacuuming! It restores the pile of your carpet, keeps it clean and smelling pleasant, and removes potential staining agents. And who doesn’t love those ‘just-vacuumed’ tracks the vacuum cleaner leaves behind? Ooo makes you feel so good inside…..

That being said, although vacuuming post-professional-clean is not strictly necessary since the cleaning treatment itself includes a deep vacuuming, there are a couple of big benefits if you do decide to.

Firstly, as carpet dries after being deep cleaned, it can sometimes wick up dirt that was too deep to reach from the base of the carpet to its surface. Vacuuming when the carpet is completely dry removes this last bit of dirt and ensures your carpet lasts even longer until its next deep clean. Don’t be tempted to even let the vacuum look at the carpet while it’s still even slightly damp, as you can do the opposite and actually push dirt into the carpet fibers, making it impossible to remove without another professional cleaning treatment. Always wait until the carpet is completely dry before vacuuming.

Secondly, professional cleaning involves getting the carpet thoroughly wet with cleaning agents and then sucking most of them back out again – the remainder being left to airdry. This can affect how the pile of the carpet lays; vacuuming soon after the carpet is dry restores the pile to its plump, fully-fluffed state, giving you better-looking, softer carpet to walk on.

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.
