Frequently Asked Questions
What type of chemicals do you use when you clean carpet? Are they safe?
We are very proud of the fact that we use cleaning products that are soap free, odor free, hypo-allergenic, non-toxic with no VOCs and no off-gassing. Our cleaning products are absolutely the safest used in our industry today. We wouldn’t use anything we wouldn’t apply in our own homes.
How soon can I walk on my carpet after cleaning?
Keep pets, children and regular traffic off of the carpet for a period of 6 hours. The home owner may use the carpet lightly immediately after cleaning by wearing the plastic booties we provide. Wait 24 hours before removing foam blocks and plastic tabs that are put in place to protect the furniture and carpet. Some carpets may still feel slightly damp for up to 24 hours depending on carpet, soiling condition and weather. This is normal and will not cause any problems.
Do you move the furniture?
Yes our regular pricing includes moving sofas, chairs, tables, end tables, etc. However awkward and extremly heavy pieces are left in place due to liability issues.
Can you clean rugs or carpets over hardwood floors?
Yes, we have our system set up where the backing of the carpet or rug is not ever saturated, therefore no problem with wood floors underneath. Oriental rugs and all woven rugs should be cleaned in-plant by hand for the best results.
Do you clean Berber carpet?
Absolutely, Berber is a weave, not a particular type of fabric. Berber is simply a type of loop construction that may come in olefin, nylon, wool, or a blend. Berber requires a more thorough cleaning than other carpets because the “flushing” action needs to take place to get under, around, and through the loops. Other companies that are not as thorough as we are do have problems with Berber because of leaving soil behind that “wicks” back to the surface.
Do you clean Wool rugs?
Yes, we have special products that we use for wool. We clean wool often. We use a little lower temperature, lower pressure and there is a special low PH rinsing surfactant we use as well. We give special concern to drying time when cleaning wool as well. Most importantly there is no substitute for experience. And our 24 years of cleaning experience makes us the true experts in cleaning wool.
What is the best carpet cleaning method?
There are several methods but two of the basic methods are the wet and dry methods. The term dry cleaning is bit misleading since all methods use some amount of water. And there is absolutely no similarity to the dry cleaning method that is used to clean clothing.
- The Dry Method. Dry methods are referred to as dry-chem or encapsulation. The processes goes something like this: There is a cleaning product that is sprayed onto the carpet and is then wiped up with an absorbent pad or cotton bonnet using a rotary type floor machine. (I liken this to a person soaping up then just wiping off with a towel, no rinsing with water! They will get some of the dirt off but will be left with a residue). This method is actually surface or maintenance method. The down side is it does leave a residue. The benefit is that it does dry in 1- 3 hours.
- The Steam Cleaning or Hot water extraction Method. This method is most successful with a powerful hot water extraction unit mounted in a truck or van. The process goes something like this: Here again a cleaner is applied to the carpet but it is then rinsed out with very hot soft water (you see once water is heated up to 120 degrees every 15-17 degree temperature rise doubles the waters power to clean, the water itself can become a very aggressive cleaner). The rinsing temperature can be adjusted to between 120 to 240 degrees depending on the type of carpet and soiling conditions that are found.
Hot Water Extraction is is the method we use and is the method that is recommended by Shaw Carpet Ind., the largest carpet manufacturer in the world. DuPont as well as all the other large manufactures also recommend this, in fact they require it, to honor their warranties. Not to mention the IICRC (Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) and the WFCA (World Floor Covering Association).
