Most frequent questions and answers

To lengthen the pristine look of your carpet, it’s advisable to keep pets and children off it and to avoid heavy traffic on the area where its located for at least 6 hours.

On average, a carpet made from regular materials (e.g. polyester, nylon, acrylic, wool, etc.) usually dries after 6 to 12 hours. Of course, if special equipment is used to dry the carpet, it could be shorter. The location where the drying happens also affects the duration. Leaving a wet carpet in a closed room with poor air circulation will definitely increase the time it dries.

The location of the carpet determines how often it has to be cleaned. Areas that have high traffic where a lot of people or pets come and go will result to dirtier carpets quicker than carpets placed in rarely visited rooms. Meaning they have to be cleaned as often as once a month or after every 3 months. Otherwise, you may have your carpet professionally cleaned after every 6 months to maintain its good state.

If the carpet was cleaned by vacuum, it’s advisable to leave it be for 6 hours before placing any furniture on top of it. If water was used or deep cleaning was done, it’s best to keep your furniture away for at least a day to ensure that no moisture will be left on the carpet.

A “crunchy” carpet happens when it’s not cleaned properly. The sticky residue stiffens the fibers making it rigid to the touch that also attracts more dirt and grime. This is one of the reasons why having a carpet professionally cleaned is recommended because carpets washed using traditional methods lead to this situation and get resoiled faster.

The short answer is yes, but it’s more effective and noticeable when an expert does it. Companies that professionally clean carpets have access to the right methods, equipment, and materials to properly deep clean the fibers and make it look brighter and fluffier.

A clean carpet is important to maintain a healthy indoor environment. Carpets can be a home for several allergens and pests if not cleaned properly. Regular vacuuming can take care of loose dirt, but professional deep cleaning is important to stop the growth of bacteria, mold, and fungi.

Definitely! There’s a lot of tangible benefits to having your carpet professionally cleaned: (1) deep cleaning – will ensure that no hidden bacteria, fungie, mold, allergen, or dirt of any kind will be left behind; (2) healthier indoor environment; (3) lengthen your carpet’s lifespan – professional cleaning companies know what materials and methods to use to clean the carpet without damaging the fibers making it last longer; and, (4) save money and resources on carpet replacement.
