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 leaves behind a feeling of residue on your foot? 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? Let's talk about it.
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, that means 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 substances such as shampoo, detergent, and 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, those luxuries only last for so long. The perfumes or oils that were used to mask unpleasant smells eventually fade away, the residues that were left behind in the carpet will start to attract dirt like a magnet and wala! Then appears distasteful crunchy carpet.
What Can I Do About Crunchy Carpet?
Unfortunately, DIY solutions will not do much to fix this problem. We definitely recommend that you stay clear of shampooing your carpet again - that will just make the problem worse! As for attempting to rinse your carpet, you have to be really careful. The use of too much water will cause saturation in the carpet and carpet padding. Putting water on carpets without extracting it straight away will create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and other nasties to form and spread.
The best recommendation we have for fixing a case of crunchy carpet is to hire a non-traditional carpet cleaning professional that doesn't clean with soaps, detergents, or chemicals.
