Do I need to vacuum the carpets before my appointment?
We'd prefer if you perform a light vacuuming of the carpets before we arrive to pick up all of the loose dirt particles, pet hair, and soils from the carpet but it's not necessary. Our equipment will be vacuuming the entire time while we're cleaning the carpets. How long does it take for the carpets to dry? This depends on different factors but it generally takes between 4-6 hours. Dry time is affected by the humidity outside, temperature, and air flow. Putting a fan on the carpets or opening windows can expedite drying. We get most of the moisture out of the carpets during cleaning but the carpets will be damp after we're done. They're safe to walk on afterwards but we recommend not wearing any shoes as you can track dirt/soil back on them.
How long will it take to clean my carpets?
There are a lot of factors involved in how long it will take to clean the carpets. These include the size of the area, how soiled the carpets are, and how easy a location it is to access. Most carpet cleaning companies send out one technician per van to complete the jobs. We send two technicians out to ensure a speedy completion of the job so you don't have to be bothered by the inconvenience of the cleaning process. Usually a normal three bedroom house with a living room can be completed in under an hour. An apartment, depending on how many bedrooms, can be cleaned within 20-40 minutes.
How much does carpet cleaning cost?
We have a price sheet given below and we stick to our prices. Unlike some carpet cleaning companies that try to upsell when they arrive or have coupons that restrict the size of the rooms, we do not sway from our prices. Unless you decide to add something like an extra bedroom or stairs to the job, what you're quoted is what you'll pay. We charge our residential jobs by the room and not by square foot, so our quotes are very accurate. Feel free to call us at 1-866-630-7500 and Steve will be glad to help you with a free quote.
How often should I get my carpets cleaned?
A good rule of thumb is to have your carpets cleaned at least once a year, if not twice. It all depends on how dirty your carpets get due to traffic, kids, pets, and how well the carpets are maintained. Cleaning the carpets more frequently will do no harm to the carpets and will make them look more fresh and clean, so it's a personal preference of the homeowner.
Why should I have my carpets cleaned?
Here are a few reasons why carpets should be cleaned. The first is for sanitation. Clean carpets make for a healthier home and work environment. Our process removes dirt, soils, and allergens from carpets, creating a fresh and safe home. Second, maintained carpets will last longer than dirty carpets. Dry dirt and soil can wear down carpet fiber and cause darker "traffic areas". Maintaining your carpets on a regular basis can prolong the life of your carpet.
