Q. How long
will it take to do the job?
Frequently Asked Questions
1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours depending on the size of the house.
Q. How long
does it take to dry?
A. It usually
takes from 1 to 4 hours to dry depending upon the condition and
thickness of the carpet, and ventilation. But you can walk on it
as soon as we're done. I wouldn't throw a party or anything but
normal traffic won't hurt it. Just be careful not to slip when going
from damp carpet onto a hard surface.
Q. What kind
of chemicals do you use?
A. We use top-of-the-line
cleaning products consistent with industry standards and manufacturers
recommendations. Our products are environmentally friendly, and
OSHA and EPA compliant.
Q. What furniture
do you move?
A. We move things
like sofas, tables and chairs. We don't move dressers, beds, china
cabinets, electronics, pianos and such. All we ask is that you remove
breakables and knickknacks from the furniture you want moved.
Q. Will the
A. When you
call for an estimate we ask a series of questions which will help
detect any conditions which may involve an extra charge. These charges
are standard in the industry. The difference is we let you know
up front what to expect. The choice is still yours.
Q. Do fabric
protectors really work?
A. Fabric protectors
won't prevent your carpet from getting dirty. Their purpose is to
protect your carpet from permanent stains and prolong the life of
the fabric, which they do very well if properly applied.
Q. How do you
treat pet stains and odor?
A. Because dogs
and cats don't sweat, their urine contains alkaline salts which
absorb moisture out of the air. Thus, pet urine never really dries.
It becomes a feeding ground for bacteria which causes odor, staining
and discoloration. Minor conditions can be handled with a combination
of germicidal and enzyme surface treatments, and enzyme injections
into the padding. Major conditions usually require pad replacement
and floor treatment in addition to treating the carpet.
