1How often should I clean my carpets?
Many carpet manufacturers now insist on proof of annual cleaning, by a professional contractor before discussing any warranty claims. More importantly, when properly maintained, your carpets lifespan will be extended. Consider that your carpet is a large dirt trapping filter, designed to collect and hide the variety of soils, bacteria, and allergens that are present in any home or office environment. Even a daily vacuuming program (highly recommended) cannot remove all of these contaminants. Your carpet is a filter and that filter needs to be cleaned periodically. My own recommendation is that carpeting should be cleaned at least once a year to insure a safer and healthier environment. If you have pets, the need can easily increase.
2Do carpet and upholstery protectors work?
Yes, when applied correctly. These products are an effective way to prolong and enhance your carpet and upholstery.
3My carpet is really old, should I replace it?
Because of the costs that come with replacing a carpet, it's always best to try having the carpet professionally cleaned first. It costs less and makes a significant difference.
4How long does it take to clean my carpet?
Typically 30 minutes per room, depending on how dirty the carpet is and if spot removal treatments are necessary.
5Can I clean my Carpets myself?
Some homeowners opt to clean their carpets themselves, but there are drawbacks to this. Professionals have training and experience that homeowners do not possess. Homeowners also lack the professional grade equipment to clean their carpets efficiently.
