1.  How often should I have my carpet cleaned?

 

It depends greatly on your particular situation. Those with

 

children, pets, or large families will need more frequent

hit
counter for myspace

cleanings. Some carpet manufacturers in fact require

 

carpet cleaning every 12-18 months to keep the warranty

 

in effect. Commercial cleaning often needs to be set up on

 

a regular maintenance program in order to properly maintain it.

 

2.  How long will it take for my carpet to dry?

 

2-12 hours depending on the type of fiber and the degree of soiling. The average time

 

is 6 hours.

 

 

3.  How long does it take to clean my carpet?

 

The amount of time it will take depends on many factors such as the amount of

 

furniture to be moved and the amount of stains and soil in the carpet. On average, it

 

takes 30-45 minutes to clean a room.

 

 

4.  Can I walk on the carpet while it is damp?

 

It would be best to stay off damp carpet to avoid tracking soil and allow the carpet to

 

dry in it’s up position.. Be careful when stepping off the damp carpet onto tile or

 

hardwood floors, you could slip.

 

 

5.  After you clean my carpets, will they re-soil quicker?

 

With our state-of-the-art truck mounted cleaning units, we completely rinse out all

 

residue left behind by companies using outdated methods or do it yourself cleaning

 

units.

 

 

6.  Can you guarantee that you will remove all of my stains?

 

In a word, no. We can guarantee that you will receive the most thorough and

 

professional cleaning available, anywhere. Our equipment and extensive training allows

 

us to remove almost any stain. However, there are instances when a spot may indeed

 

be permanent. But we will usually be able to identify these problems prior to cleaning.


 Which method cleans best? 


Dry Foam: The carpet cleaner applies shampoo to your carpet, allows it to dry, and

then, without rinsing, sucks the dried shampoo into a vacuum. Can you imagine

applying shampoo to your hair, allowing it to dry and then removing the shampoo

from your head with a vacuum? This method leaves dirty residue in your carpet, which

is one reason dry foam is not too effective.
 

 

Bonnet cleaning (so-called dry cleaning): This method is similar to dry foam except that

the company sets a large cotton bonnet on your carpet and with a floor polishing buffer

machine on top 'buffs' the carpet. The rotating motion causes the bonnet to absorb dirt

from your carpet. This method is also called bonnet cleaning. Bonnet cleaning is like

trying to use a large wet towel or mop to rub the dirt out of your carpet. It's not very

effective.

 

Dry, absorbent powder: The dry-compound method spreads a moist, absorbent

powder through the carpet. The powder is allowed to dry and then sucked in to a

vacuum. This method leaves dry sponge particles at the base of the carpet yarn. And

because the carpet is not rinsed, this method is not very effective.  

 

                  

 Truck-Mounted Hot Water Extraction:

 

                            This is the best of the best. This is a fancy way of saying that hot

         

                             water cleaning solution under high pressure is forced into your

 

                             carpet and then sucked out of your carpet.


 

                              In a recent Technical Bulletin, Shaw Industries, the world's largest

 

carpet manufacturer, "recommends the hot water extraction

 

system, which research indicates provides the best capability for cleaning".



Shaw's Technical Bulletin states: "Cleaning can be done from a truck mounted unit

 

outside the facility with only the hose and wand brought inside, or where a truck

 

mounted unit cannot reach (such as a high rise), by a portable, self-contained system

 

brought into the facility."
