Frequently Asked Questions

How Long do my Carpets take to dry

Depending on the weather, normally it takes 2 to 3 hours for the carpet to dry 

Will I get charged for Stain Work

If there are stains that do not come out with the normal carpet cleaning process then there will be an extra charge of $55.00

Do you move Furniture

Our technicians will move the heavy furniture. If you could please remove all the breakables like lamps and smaller items, this insures that there are no breakables. Once our technicians have finished we then place plastic sleeves under items that might have a tendency to bleed.

When can I walk on the Carpets

Keep pets, children and regular traffic off the carpet for a period of 4 to 6 hours. The homeowner may use the carpet very lightly by wearing white socks. Wait 24 hours before removing plastic sleeves that are put in place to protect the furniture and the carpet. Some carpets may still feel slightly damp for up to 18 hours depending on carpet and soiling conditions. This is normal and won’t cause any problems.

Can I get my rugs cleaned at the same time

Yes, we have our system set up where the backing of the carpet or rug is not saturated, therefore no problem with wood floors underneath. No problem with edges either, our rinse does not affect hardwood floors. Oriental rugs and all woven rugs should be cleaned in-plant.
