Carpet Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions
By Amy Renken
How long does it take for my carpet to dry?
This is a common question when it comes to steam cleaning because most of you are concerned about using water to clean your carpets. One of the best features of steam cleaning is that by the end of the job, most of the water is vacuumed out anyways-so your carpets aren’t really “wet” but they may be a little damp. However, depending on what type of carpet you have, the extra drying time could be anywhere from 2 hours to 48 hours (usually 24 hours, but to be safe we’ll say 48).
Are the chemicals you use safe for my children and pets?
Yes! Absolutely. Fortunately steam cleaning does not require any extra chemicals, using only water. Another one of the primary benefits to steam cleaning, because you don’t have to worry about any extra chemicals around your house (besides the usual ones you probably already worry about).
I’ve heard that if I clean my carpet often, it will soil quicker – is this true?
No. In fact, we just did a blog last week that busted all of the common carpet cleaning myths you typically hear. This being one of the top ones! This is not true. There’s only one thing you should worry about when you clean your carpet often: all of the compliments you will get on your “brand new” carpet! Especially if you are steam cleaning your carpets often, because steam cleaning digs so deep to pull all of those stains up and away.
What happens if the stains reappear?
It’s extremely rare that your stains should reappear after a thorough and proper steam cleaning. However, if this does happen, just call us immediately and we will take a look at the problem.
