Frequently asked questions

Do I need to get my carpets cleaned?

Yes, most manufacturers will recommend that you get your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months. If you let the dirt build up too much, it reduces the life of your carpet.

Why don’t I just clean them myself?

If you don’t have any experience in cleaning carpets isn’t as easy as it looks. Firstly, a trained professional will be able to do it more thoroughly and faster than a DIY attempt. 

Secondly, though off the shelf carpet cleaning products make large claims, often they will not have the same effect meaning you have to clean them much more regularly. 

Ultimately a professional can achieve much better results.

Do I have to move all my furniture?

Most carpet cleaners will be happy to do this for you, with the exception of high-value items. There may be a charge involved for moving furniture so just be sure to check with them beforehand.

Does it take a long time for carpets to dry?

No, with the use of modern technology and machines most of the moisture can be removed from the carpets very quickly meaning that the drying process is relatively fast. It does, however, vary depending on the thickness of the carpet and method used by each professional. 

The average is between 12 and 24 hours.

Is there a risk of shrinkage?

Most modern carpets are not prone to shrinkage. However, there are types which will shrink. Most good carpet cleaners will be able to detect if your carpet falls into this bracket and will advise you accordingly.

I’ve heard that carpets get dirtier faster after they’ve been cleaned, is this true?

This only happens if too much residue is left on the carpet, modern machinery means this is very rarely an issue anymore. However, if this is something you are particularly concerned about you can always raise it with the professional beforehand so they can explain their methods in more detail.

If you have pets or small children that will be in very close contact with the carpet make sure to discuss the types of products that your professional intends to use.

Some deep stains may not be able to be removed as the actual carpet fibres could have been damaged. Most carpet cleaners will be able to advise you when this is the case of what to do next.
