Do you use a truck mounted, or portable cleaning machine

Do you use a truck mounted, or portable cleaning machine?

There are certainly differences when it comes to using the different machines, and it will affect the process of cleaning your carpets.

We use a truck mounted cleaning machine which is the best pampering you can give to your precious carpets. The steam cleaning will extract the contaminants from your carpet effectively, and instead of having them return to their original positions or into the indoor air of your house, the machine will ensure they are disposed of properly.

Utilizing truck-mounted cleaning machinery will ensure your entire home is cleared of the harmful agents that come with cleaning. Coupled with the use of effective disinfectants and deodorizers, you can rest easy knowing your carpets are well cleaned, safe, and will last for a longer time.

On the other hand, using a portable cleaning machine is certainly less effective as a whole. The process may keep your carpet looking great for a couple of days, but there are risks involved. Soil can often remain due to a process called wicking, and the relatively less cleaning power of portable cleaners are unable to remedy that. In our opinion, companies that serve you with portable cleaning machines aren’t really giving you the best service.

Compared to the heavy duty machinery, it is not as thorough. Thus, your carpets are not exactly back to its original and wonderfully clean condition. In fact, your carpet may only be clean on the surface. Grime may persist, and you may be staring at a dirty carpet in just a few days. That is not something anyone would want in their home.

Our truck-mounted cleaning machinery will allow for a proper extraction process throughout your home, ensuring that contaminants are permanently removed.

put off having my carpet cleaned

I’ve heard it’s best to put off having my carpet cleaned as long as possible. Is this true?

That is never the case, and it may require some understanding of the processes behind cleaning your carpets. This misconception is likely to have come as a result of homeowners doing the cleaning themselves, as opposed to getting professional help. As a DIY solution, some homeowners may have used shampoo in order to clean their carpets.

Unfortunately, rather than doing that, it achieves the opposite effect instead. Each shampoo session will leave behind residue that stays stuck in between the fibers of the carpet. As it builds up, it will begin to mat the carpet. 

This in essence makes it easier for dirt and other contaminants to be stuck in your carpet. The cycle of shampooing, leaving behind residue, and dirt build up will only worsen the conditions of the carpet.

The oblivious homeowner may be unaware of the damage they are causing. Calling in the experts and professionals will alleviate these issues and more in the most efficient of ways. They rely on proper equipment, cleaners, disinfectants, and proper cleaning and drying methods that will prevent such problems. 

In order to prolong the longevity of your carpets, look to vacuum them two to three times weekly, and get a professional clean annually. This will make sure that the soil, germs, and bacteria built up over time will get taken care of. For families with younger children or pets, you might want to consider a professional clean up to three times a year.

Rather than replacing your carpets every once in a while, give them a good cleaning so you get the most out of them instead.

carpet wet after steam cleaning

How long does my carpet stay wet after steam cleaning?

There are plenty of factors to consider. However, most importantly, it all comes down to the professionals that are in charge of your cleaning. Different companies have varying equipment and processes, and the employees may possess contrasting levels of proficiency when it comes to steam cleaning carpets

The truth is that nobody likes to walk around on soggy carpets, there is also the potential for curious smells that can emanate from wet fibers. That is certainly a nightmare situation for any homeowner with substantial carpeting.

Consider experts like us who utilize high-powered and industry-leading machinery that can carry out the steam cleaning in a continuous cycle. This way, not only is your carpet getting the entirety of its fiber cleaned rigorously, but all the contaminants, soils, bacteria, and the excess water are all removed completely. 

With such a process, you are getting a clean carpet that is not soaking wet. In order to achieve the maximum dryness, this will usually be followed up by an intense drying using carpet dryers. This is a fast and efficient process that can make even the toughest of carpets dry in a short time.

For any homeowner looking to clean their carpets, not having these floor coverings around can feel really foreign. The aim is to get them cleaned, dried, and back onto your floors as soon as possible. That can only be possible with the best of equipment and procedures that experts and professionals can bring to the table, and one you should only consider.

Should I have my carpets shampooed, dry cleaned, or steam cleaned

Should I have my carpets shampooed, dry cleaned, or steam cleaned?

If we are talking about the carpets that are in your home, steam cleaning is the only way to go about it. Experts call this method of carpet cleaning the “hot water extraction method.”

This is the most comprehensive cleaning you can do for your carpet. Rather than risk damaging the fibers, this is the best way to help restore the lustre of your carpet back to its initial pristine and clean state. Through the use of the intense heat combined with specialized cleaning agents, you can ensure that the carpet gets sanitized and deodorized at the same time.

With proper maintenance, you can be sure your carpet retains its original look as much as possible. At the same time, you can prevent additional contaminants from affecting the air in your home.

Of course, all the dirt and pollutants have to be removed. This is all taken care of in the process outside of your property, which saves you all the trouble of cleaning up after. Compared to dry cleaning or shampooing, it is less of a hassle in all aspects. For those worried about voiding your warranty, rest easy. The professionals who clean your carpet will stick within the conditions of warranties for most carpets.

Overall, if you are looking for a deep and thorough clean, your best option is to choose professional steam cleaning.
