Regardless of the type of carpeting you have in your home, eventually, it is going to start having some unsatisfactory odors emanating from it. So, how do you deal with those horrid smells? You may be tempted to grab one of those carpet powders that promise to remove even pet odors, but there are some things you should know before you use these.
First, these powders are designed to be sprinkled on and then vacuumed back out of the carpet. If this worked perfectly, it wouldn’t be a problem. However, it is impossible to get all of it regardless of how good a vacuum you have. What is left behind becomes a residue that can actually damage your carpeting. In fact, some manufacturer’s warranties are voided if you use them.
It isn’t just the danger to the carpeting that should concern you. These powders are made with chemicals that are not good for you and your family. They should specifically be avoided if you have children or pets that play on the carpeting. A professional carpet cleaning using natural products is your best bet for retaining your carpeting warranty and keeping your home’s indoor air quality safe for your family.
