Carpet Cleaning Faqs & Tips

The following represent some common questions that we receive from our customers.

How often should you get your carpets cleaned?

We recommend that you get your carpets cleaned at least once a year. If you have a busy household, you may want to consider getting your carpets every three to six months.

How long should it take for carpets to dry after they have been cleaned?

We use a truck mounted system so your carpets should dry within 2 to 3 hours. The carpet drying time is highly affected by how much air movement there is in your home or office, so make sure to place your a/c, heating systems, or ceiling fans on.

How to keep your carpets cleaner longer.

We have a lot of customers who ask us how to keep their newly cleaned carpets looking cleaner longer. We also get a lot of general questions about how to spot clean at home. Here are some of those questions:

Can bleach spots come out?

Unfortunately bleach spots cannot be removed from carpets. However they can be patched with remnant carpet in your home.

Can store bought stain removers like Resolve or others damage your carpet?

Certain stain removers like Resolve could potentially bleach your carpet. Not only do they risk the possibility of placing a bleach stain in your carpet, but they also leave a residue in the carpet that can be difficult to remove.

What difference does it make if I use entrance mats?

If you use entrance mats both inside and outside your home or office, it will reduce the amount of dirt brought onto your carpet.

How important is vacuuming?

In order to maintain and keep your carpets looking great, we recommend that you vacuum twice a week. Dry soil can potentially damage carpet fibers by causing your carpet to wear out faster.
