Carpet Cleaning Questions
Do you have any carpet cleaning questions? Let us provide professional answers at our handy FAQ below! Remember, send us a message or give us a call to answer any further questions you have or set up an appointment.
Do I Need To Vacuum Before A Professional Carpet Cleaning?
Yes, you should vacuum your carpets before a professional carpet cleaning. Vacuuming removes dry soil, surface dust, and dander, so you get a more in-depth, longer-lasting cleaning.
Do I Need To Move My Furniture?
We clean around items which are more than 50 pounds such as beds, dresser, hutches, etc., and can move lighter items where it makes sense. Many times, the homeowner will have everything moved to where they want it before having their carpet cleaned professionally.
Common Carpet Cleaning Misconceptions
Will All The Spots In My Carpet Come Out?
We treat all spotted areas with the most professional techniques available today and are successful more than 97% of the time. Be assured; we entirely exhaust our vast arsenal of carpet cleaners to lift the spots out of your carpet.
How Often Should I Have My Carpet Professionally Cleaned?
If you want to extend the life of your carpet, it's essential to have it professionally cleaned at least once a year. Some people will deep clean their carpets whenever they change the furnace filters because your carpet acts as your home’s filter as well.
What Method Of Cleaning Do Carpet Manufacturers Recommend?
Most carpet manufacturers recommend the steam cleaning method, which My Trusted Carpet Cleaners uses.
Does Carpet Get Dirty More Quickly After A Cleaning?
No, not with our Two-Step Cleaning system. The residue that gets left in the carpet from inferior cleaning processes is what causes rapid re-soiling. Our two-step cleaning process uses pressurized hot water and advanced cleaning agents to loosen the soil as the first step. The second step is to remove the dirt, and the cleaning solution with a clear water rinse and a powerful vacuuming from our truck mounted system, leaving your carpets soft and clean.
Do Carpet Protectors Work Effectively?
Yes, most new carpet has a protector on it which has been applied by the carpet manufacturer. However, protector wears off because of traffic on the carpet, frequent vacuuming, and eventually will need reapplication.
Will A Carpet Cleaning Machine From A Retail Store Clean My Carpet As Effectively As A Professional?
No. Those machines work well to clean-up spills and to keep the high-traffic areas looking clean between professional cleanings. However, they're not powerful enough to clean down to the base of the carpet where grit is wearing away at your fibers, or where the dust mites, bacteria, and other organisms live in your carpets. Plus there’s no rinsing process to remove the residues left by the cleaning agents so your carpets will re-soil more quickly.
