Have you ever stepped on a carpet with bare feet expecting to feel a warm and soft surface but instead step on a crunchy surface? That is not what carpet should feel like! It should feel soft, warm, clean, and inviting. Carpet should be a surface that you look forward to walking on barefoot, not avoiding! So, what is it that causes once welcoming carpet to become an unpleasant surface to step on?
Why is My Carpet Crunchy After Cleaning?
The biggest cause of carpet becoming crunchy and gross is simply that they were not cleaned properly. If your carpet is crunchy after getting cleaned, it may mean that particles of the shampoo, detergent, or chemicals that were used during the cleaning process were left behind in the carpet fibers. Traditional carpet cleaning companies commonly use shampoo, detergent, and/or chemicals that tend to cause a bigger problem than they fix. Initially, after a cleaning by a traditional carpet cleaning company, your carpet will look great and smell great. But, many times that is due to perfumes or oils that were used to mask unpleasant smells and eventually the smell fades away. However, the soapy residue remains in your carpet and cause it to feel stiff or crunchy.
What Can I Do About Crunchy Carpet?
We recommend that you stay clear of shampooing your carpet again - that will just make the problem worse! As for attempting to rinse your carpet, care will need to be taken as too much water will cause the carpet and carpet padding to become saturated. Putting water on carpets without extracting it straight away will create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
