Is it worth getting my carpets professionally cleaned?
You might think that using your vacuum cleaner to clean your carpets every week is good enough but it’s not. Most of the time, dust, crumbs, and insects get stuck in the carpet and a regular vacuum cleaner isn’t strong enough to suck them out and clean the carpet thoroughly.
Especially if you have babies or elderly at home, or people who are sensitive to dust and get allergies easily, getting your carpets thoroughly cleaned will ensure that they don’t cause illnesses or allergies.
Why do I need to clean my carpets?
Everyday, we constantly step on the carpets with our dirty feet. Even though we can’t see the dirt accumulating, it’s definitely there. Sometimes, even if we’re careful, food crumbs can drop and get lodged between the carpet fibres and you won’t even know it happened.
Once dirt, dust, and crumbs are left in your carpet for long periods of time, they become a breeding ground for insects, germs, and bacteria. Because the carpet is always being stepped on, the germs and bacteria can spread in the air easily and can cause allergies or illnesses.
How often do I need to clean my carpets?
It is advisable to do a thorough cleaning of your carpets once every 6 months. For weekly maintenance, using a vacuum cleaner to go through the carpet fibres would be sufficient. We can also coat your carpets with a protective layer at the end of the cleaning process so that it stays fresher for longer.
How much does carpet cleaning services typically cost?
Carpet cleaning companies typically charge by square foot for commercial locations, but for residential locations they go by per piece. Depending on how big your carpet is, prices can range anywhere from $50 to $300 for both commercial carpet cleaning and residential carpet cleaning.
How long does it take to clean carpets?
Depending on the size and type of your carpet and how dirty it is, the on-site carpet cleaning service typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour.
For factory carpet cleaning services, it typically takes between 3 days to 1 week depending on the condition of the carpet. If you require an express service, we are able to provide that at a surcharge. Just let us know and we’ll arrange it for you.
