Professional Carpet Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked Questions

Carpet Cleaning

How often should i have my carpets professionally cleaned?

As a general rule, professional carpet cleaning by a certified firm should take place about once per year. For heavy traffic areas, cleaning may be required more often. Many stain resist warranties actually require regular professional cleanings. Specific warranties on your carpet purchase should be available from your carpet retailer.

Why should i hire a professional carpet cleaner instead of doing it myself?

home carpet cleaning machines available to rent or purchase to consumers do not reach temperatures nearly as high enough to sanitize carpets. Heat is required to activate the cleaning agents in the detergent-that means piping hot water, and not water from a faucet. Our equipment heats water to temperatures or 212-230 degrees (the boiling point) in order to properly disinfect your carpets. Furthermore, the vacuums in home carpet cleaners are designed to avoid blowing a circuit.that means that they are not very powerful. these machines are not capable of removing all of the dirt and bacteria embedded in carpet fibers, nor even all of the soap and water they inject. Carpets will dry slower, and will end up with a sticky residue on the surface when you use these rental machines. Our truck-mounted system has a much stronger vacuum, which decreases dry times and leaves your carpets residue-free.

How does hot water extraction compare to dry carpet cleaning?

Most major carpet manufacturers like philadelphia shaw contest that hot water extraction is the most effective carpet cleaning method on the market, as well as the least harmful to you and your family's health.The other popular technique, known as, "dry cleaning" places harsh chemical compounds or solvents on top of carpets to break down soil. Even after they've been vacuumed up, these compounds leave behind a sticky residue which quickly attracts dirt back to the carpet's surface and makes it filthy again. in addition, many people with skin sensitivities or respiratory issues have negative reactions to these harsh chemical residuals.Our cleaning approach completely flushes soils and cleaning agents out of your carpets, leaving them smell and irritant free.

How often should i vacuum my carpet?

When it comes to maintaining your carpet, the most critical areas of focus are high-traffic areas. if vacuuming is neglected, then sand, dirt and other dry soils can attach to carpet fibers and settle on the base of the carpet. over time, these abrasive granules cut and wear excessively on the fibers as you walk back and forth across them, even if you cant see them. Vacuum your carpet often - at least once or twice per week - to avoid premature wear.

Small items such as children's toys, pet beds, clothes, shoes and rugs should be picked up before we arrive. we also recommend vacuuming to remove pet hair and other noticeable debris so you can get the most out of your carpet cleaning (our vacuums are designed for removing liquids and soils, and not for picking up hair or large refuse). furniture should be moved out of the areas that you are having serviced-we will clean around any furniture that is left in place. we also recommend temporarily moving any breakables like picture frames or glass decorations to a safe location.
