Why You Should Not Rub Carpets with Carpet Cleaning

Wool CarpetMost carpet fibres have a woven pattern which are extremely delicate weave especially when it comes to natural fibred carpets. That means that all threads of these carpets are intertwined (similar to a hair plait style perhaps). When an aggressive rubbing technique is applied to these carpet fibres during carpet cleaning these threads can easily distort and unweave themselves due to the heavy pressure. This is why after a heavy rubbing process some people will notice the carpets may have a wirey look to the patch they have just been rubbing.

Don’t rub your carpet with carpet cleaning and always use a blotting technique. This way your carpet fibres are safe from an over aggressive technique.
