Carpet Cleaning FAQ
Here are a few of the most common questions (and answers) about our carpet cleaning services:
Q. How often should I have a professional come in and clean my carpets?
A. Realistically, you could just vacuum your carpet often and it's fine for the year, right? If that’s your style, we won’t cramp it.
But if your carpet has a lot of high-traffic areas or you have kids and pets running around on it 24/7, you should have your carpets cleaned every 6 months to once per year to get all the dirt and dander that accumulates. Low-milage carpeting or summer homes can have carpets cleaned less frequently.
Q. I have a Rug Doctor or Bissell carpet cleaner, isn’t that enough?
A. These home units are great for in between professional carpet cleanings or if you just have a random spot on your carpet. Cleaning carpets in your own home with these carpet cleaning machines is very time consuming, there’s chemicals you may not be familiar with and the machines are certainly not professional-grade. If you do choose to DIY, be sure to use the carpet cleaner as recommended and rinse the carpet afterwards.
Q. If I install new carpet, then I don’t need to have it cleaned for years, right?
A. Here’s the deal. Every new carpet comes with a warranty. Read over this warranty very closely and follow the provided guidelines. Some new carpet warranties will say the carpet needs cleaned every 12 or 18 months. Follow this protocol to be sure you keep your warranty valid.
Q. How long does carpet cleaning take?
A. The answer to this question of course depends on the size of your house, business, condo or apartment. But for the sake of estimation, you can expect even a small apartment (less than 1000 sq. ft.) to take about an hour to have the carpets cleaned. If furniture needs to be moved, this will take an additional few minutes. Your time along with ours is valuable, that’s why our carpet cleaning technicians set up and break down the carpet cleaning equipment as quickly as possible.
Q. How long does it take for the carpet to dry?
A. Our exclusive Kwik Dry cleaning system will have your carpets clean and dry in about an hour.
Q. What cities do you serve?
A. While our home base is here in Gulf Shores, we provide carpet cleaning services to residents and businesses in South Baldwin County including Foley and Orange Beach. For our Floridian neighbors of Escambia County, we will gladly travel to Perdido Key and Pensacola.
