How often should I have my carpet professionally cleaned?
It depends on your lifestyle. Do you have children and/or pets? Do you entertain frequently? Major carpet manufacturers recommend that residential carpets be professionally cleaned every 12-18 months, depending on your lifestyle. Certainly, carpets with a lot of “traffic’ need to be cleaned more often than those with less traffic. Also, certain areas of your home need more frequent cleaning. The family room requires more cleaning than the guest bedroom, for example. Some families have their heavy traffic areas cleaned three or more times per year.
My carpet is 3 years old and I've never had it cleaned. It doesn't look dirty. Should I have it cleaned anyway?
There are two main reasons to have your carpet cleaned even if it doesn’t look dirty: (1) health concerns and (2) life expectancy of your carpet. Indoor air experts say. “Once carpet looks dirty, it is really filthy. Filthy carpet can be a health risk, especially since most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Dirty carpet contributes to poor indoor air quality and poor indoor air quality can make you sick. Those with allergies especially need a clean environment. Dirt is an abrasive and actually cuts your carpet fibers. By the time your carpet looks dirty, serious and expensive damage has begun to occur.
Is steam cleaning safe for my carpets?
Most major carpet manufacturers recommend steam cleaning. The proper term is hot water extraction. Be careful, though. Steam cleaning got its bad reputation because poorly trained carpet cleaners using inferior, portable equipment often left the carpet too wet, taking days to dry! This should not be the case. Properly trained, IICRC certified technicians with truck-mounted equipment should get the best results.
How long do I need to stay off my carpets after they have been cleaned?
It is recommended that you keep children and pets off freshly cleaned carpets until carpets are dry. We provide shoe covers (to be worn over your shoes) at no extra charge if you need to immediately walk on your carpet.
How long does the service take?
If you are looking for an average, consider about 20 minutes per room. Of course the time can vary greatly depending upon the size of the room, the amount of furniture that needs to be moved, if the carpet has been cleaned recently, how dirty the carpet is and if there is any spot treatments necessary.
Once we know the scope of the work, we will give you an estimate based upon our experience.
Can steam cleaning help with allergies?
Regularly steam cleaning your rugs and carpets can be extremely beneficial to allergy sufferers. If you suffer from an allergy to dust mites, mold or a ton of other organisms, steam carpet cleaning will greatly reduce your allergic reactions in your home. You can use steam cleaning in bathrooms, kitchens and nearly any other surface in your home as well. So it is great for more than carpet.
