Frequently Asked Questions

Carpet Cleaning

How is your carpet cleaning services different?

Our Carpet cleaning process was set by the IICRC. The IICRC sets standards for cleaning and the procedures needed to perform carpet cleaning. By following these set standards, we can clean your carpet the way it was ment to be cleaned. With the proper products, training, and equipment. Our process removes soaps, soils, and residues from previous cleaning attempts. The cleaners we use are formulated for carpet and will not harm the fibers. Carpet that we clean stays cleaner longer because our process rinses out those sticky residues that attract and hold onto the soils.

Does having my carpet cleaned make it get dirtier quicker?

No. The latest cleaning methods and products that C & S Cleaning uses rinse the cleaning agents out of the carpet and some even leave a polymer (much like carpet protectant) to help reduce problematic wicking and residue that other cleaners leave behind. Lesser systems and uneducated cleaners are most commonly the issue with rapid resoilng in a clients home. But using the correct equipment and cleaners like C&S does eliminates that.

15-30 minutes per room on average, the dirtier it is the longer it may take.

Will water ruin my carpet?

Today's carpets are water resistant because they are mainly synthetic, and actually repel water, and do not absorb much if any moisture. Typically water does not penetrate past the fiber. We have special tools that limit water reaching the secondary backing of the carpet, normal cleaning does not penetrate past the carpet fibers, but does clean your carpet fiber top to bottom ensuring a clean, healthy carpet

How long will it take to dry?

Drying time depends on humidity, air flow, the type of carpet, and the type of service being performed. In general it takes between 1-3 hours to dry competely. Pet urine treatment areas, and area that were heavily soiled will take longer as more water was used in the process of getting the floor cleaned. Also airflow is slower deep down in the padding when it comes to per urine, and thus drying is slower.

You can walk on it immediately after cleaning with clean shoes or booties supplied by us.

Can I have both my area rug and the carpet that it on cleaned together?

Yes but non synthetic rugs are preferably cleaned off site in a controlled environment. Synthetic rug can be cleaned on site but should not be put back into position onto any surface until completely dry. The flooring underneath where the rug goes should also be completely dry so it does not trap moisture.
