Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How often should I have my carpet professionally cleaned?

Get your carpet cleaned every 3 to 12 months on average. This can vary depending on how many Adults, Children and Pets live in your home. We recommend you have your high traffic areas cleaned every 6 months.

Q: Can we walk on the carpet right after it’s been cleaned?

Yes, but we recommend that after your carpet is cleaned you do allow for some dry time. If you choose to walk on your freshly cleaned carpet, make sure you wear footwear (slippers, socks, shoe covers, shoes are O.K. if bottoms are clean) when walking on it so that you do not transfer oils from feet to clean carpets. It is also very important that you are careful not to slip when walking from damp carpet to hard surfaces, Please Be Careful.

You should vacuum your carpet at least once or twice a week. Vacuuming frequently can actually give your carpet long life from not allowing dirt and grime from getting deep into the fibers and between the carpet and pad that can actually wear carpet faster in high traffic areas. In this instance more is better.

Q: How long does it take the carpet to dry after cleaning?

It should take 4 to 8 hours to dry your freshly cleaned carpet, but can dry faster with ample air circulation and moisture ventilation. Carpet dries on the same principle as your clothing, the more air the faster. So if weather permitting open windows, turn on vents to air, ceiling fans and portable fans are a great idea also.
