How long do you have to stay off carpet after cleaning?
It can take anywhere between 8-24 hours for the carpet to completely dry, depending on humidity, type of carpet and temperatures. Using fans and turning on your air conditioning or heating system can help accelerate drying time.
Can we walk on the carpet after cleaning?
You may walk on damp carpets with booties or socks immediately. However, we do not recommend wearing street shoes, bare feet or letting pets in until carpets are completely dry.
How do you prepare for carpet cleaning?
We ask you to please vacuum your traffic areas before we arrive.
Remove breakable items such as tabletop lamps before we arrive or while we set up our carpet cleaning equipment.
For the best carpet cleaning results, dining chairs, ottomans and small tables should be removed from the areas you plan to have us clean.
Large furniture can be shifted around the room as it is cleaned by the homeowner. If you require Nanaimo Carpet Cleaning to move furniture for you, please ask us ahead of time if we are able to help.
How many times should carpets be cleaned?
For an average household, vacuuming should be done at least twice a week. If you want to extend the life of your carpet, it is important to have it professionally cleaned at least once a year. Most carpet manufacturers recommend the steam cleaning carpet cleaning method. Our steam clean extraction system is the most efficient way to prolong the life of your carpets.
How long will the carpet last?
Carpet is not intended to last forever and will eventually need replacing. Most manufacturers suggest carpet should last up to 10 years after which signs of wear will begin to appear. Major walkways and high traffic areas are the first areas where carpet fibres start losing their texture and tuft. Regular professional carpet cleaning will extend the life of your carpet beyond manufactures suggestions.
Can you put the furniture back on the wet carpet?
Furniture can only be put back on the wet carpet if it has something underneath it. Wet carpet could blemish from wood stains or rust if furniture is set directly on it. Items with legs can be put on small pieces of plastic. Items without legs should be kept off the carpet with small wood or Styrofoam blocks.
I have had my carpet cleaned, but the spots have reappeared. What should I do?
Although most spots we have removed from carpet do not reappear, some substances in carpet backing may wick to the surface after cleaning and may require further treatment.
Do you guarantee removal of all spots or stains on the carpet?
No carpet cleaning company in Nanaimo will guarantee to remove all spots or stains. There are substances that can permanently discolour the carpet fibres. The age of the carpet and the type of carpet fibres also plays a factor in this. We chose the truck mounted steam cleaning extraction system based on the superior result this method achieves. NO other method is as effective at removing stubborn stains. Portable cleaning units available to rent are the least effective at remove stains, companies who use these portable systems struggle to remove small surface spots.
What types of chemicals do you use?
