Carpet Cleaning Tips:
Can I clean carpets during cold weather, or do they take longer to dry?
Is it safe to walk on the carpet while it may still be damp?
- No, we are trained to clean, sanitize, and rinse the carpets to extract 90 percent of the moisture leaving only a slightly damp carpet. Even during the winter months, the carpets only take 4-6 hours to completely dry. Turning up the heat can help speed up this dry time but is not necessary.
Going about your business at home will not damage or hurt the carpet; walk carefully and use caution going from damp carpet to hard surfaces; your feet or shoes can become slippery and cause you to slip and fall. Also, going from outside to inside can carry dirt or debris on the bottom of your feet and still to the carpet, so use our supplied foot coverings or remove your shoes to prevent this from happening.
Will waiting to make a difference in how the carpets clean up?
Short answer, Yes! Waiting can and will allow the soil to embed deep into the carpet fibers allowing them to become stained, worn, and dingy making the carpets difficult to clean and look beautiful again. It is highly recommended, even on lightly used areas, to have them cleaned every 12 months. Just because you can't see the soil, oils from fur and feet, and dander in and on the carpet, it is an important step to ensure long-lasting clean carpets and healthy indoor air quality.
How often should the carpets be cleaned?
- The recommendation is to hot water extract All carpets every 6-12 months for performance and health. This helps reduce indoor allergens, odors, dirt, grime, and soil and really helps increase the lifespan of your carpets and upholstery.
