Frequently Asked Questions
I heard that my carpet will get dirty faster after a cleaning, is this true?
No, this is only true if your cleaner uses an improper method or improper chemical.
Can we walk on the carpet right away?
The less traffic the carpet receives while wet the better. We suggest that if you have to walk on the carpet, then do not wear socks or shoes.
What does carpet protector do?
Carpet Protection will not keep your carpets from getting dirty. What it does is keep spots from turning into stains. It keeps them from sinking deep into the fibers of the carpet and will allow you carpet to clean up easier in the future.
Will carpet cleaning make my allergies worse?
No, it will actually help your allergies. Carpet acts as a filter, trapping dust soil and pollen and keeping it out of the air.
Additional Useful information
A regular schedule of vacuuming will do much in extending not only the life of your carpet, but the beauty as well. Remember to give particular attention to the high traffic areas. Without proper carpet cleaning and maintenance on a regular basis, you’ll be replacing your carpet much sooner than necessary.
If you use area rugs over your carpet, be sure to remove and clean them regularly. Clean and restore the pile of the carpet underneath. Be certain to check area rugs for colorfastness before putting them back over your carpet, as the dyes in some rugs may bleed through to the carpet. After cleaning your carpet, remember to allow complete drying before replacing rugs.
Protect your carpet from prolonged periods of direct sunlight with blinds, shades, or awnings.
Walk-off mats are a good carpet cleaning and maintenance routine. They should be used at all entrances to absorb soil and moisture, and mats should be cleaned on a regular basis so they don’t become sources of soil themselves, especially during inclement weather. Sidewalks and entrances should be kept free of excessive dirt and substances which can be tracked into the home.
Occasionally move heavy furniture to avoid excessive pile crushing. Put coasters intended for use with carpet under the legs of tables, chairs, and other furniture to help distribute the weight and prevent crushing the pile. Do not use chairs or appliances with rollers or casters on carpet without a chair pad designed for carpet. Continued use without a chair pad can course damage to the carpet.
When moving heavy wheeled furniture ( Pianos, Buffets, etc. ) prevent damage by placing a protective barrier of heavy cardboard or plywood between the wheels and the carpet.
