Why Should I Get My Carpets Cleaned? 

Improved Health– Carpet easily can become a home for allergens, dust particles and bacteria. These particles in your carpet can lead to breathing problems, such as asthma and allergies. Vacuuming alone doesn’t help to completely remove these particles and over time they accumulate, increasing the risk of health problems. Professional carpet cleaning, on the other hand, uses state of the art equipment to remove things like dust mites, bacteria, and other allergens. 

Fresh Smell and Better Airflow– When dirt is clogged in your carpet, it can penetrate your entire home and make it smell unpleasant. Dirty carpeting can also hinder the airflow in your home, especially in areas along the walls where the air in your home needs to be able to move the most. With carpets cleaned by a professional, your home will have improved airflow, air quality, and smell fresher. 

Improved Look and Feel– When dirt and dust build up in the fibers of your carpet, it causes the fibers to become matted, which leads to the carpet looking old, worn, flat, and feeling rough, regardless of how much padding is underneath. A professional cleaning helps to keep the dirt and dust from wearing away the fibers in the carpet, which ultimately makes them look better and feel softer for a longer.

What Does Professional Carpet Cleaning Involve?

Professional carpet cleaners have several advantages over homeowners who may try doing their own carpet cleaning. First, they have more expertise when it comes to different fabrics, stains and other specialty situations. Second, they have far more advanced equipment. This includes anything you may be able to rent or buy for household use. Professional carpet cleaners use state-of-the-art truck mounted equipment.

Complete Detail uses the most common and most effective method for carpet cleaning. Each carpet is pre-sprayed to help break down oils and dirt. Then, we use 240-degree steam cleaning in which hot water and detergent are sprayed onto the carpet in the first pass, loosening dirt and other debris. On the second pass, the dirty water is sucked up, or extracted, at high pressure. A third pass is usually required to rinse the carpets and remove any lingering detergent. In a home with pets or heavy foot traffic, a deodorizer and stain guard are recommended to help with strong odors and prevent future staining. Carpets cleaned in this manner usually take about 4-6 hours to dry, if it is well ventilated.

How to Keep Carpets Clean Between Cleanings

Installing carpet in your home is an investment, so it is important to protect your hard work by properly caring for it. Daily maintenance and routine professional cleanings will help to ensure that your carpet, as well as your home, is fresh, clean and healthy.

  • Vacuum regularly
  • Sprinkle baking soda on the floor prior to vacuuming
  • Treat stains as soon as they occur
  • Have the carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year

About Our Carpet Cleaning Services

Our carpet cleaning crews understand that every home is unique. For example, someone in your home may suffer from allergies or asthma. Still, others may have pets or children. Each situation calls for different styles of care. Therefore, it is extremely important that you hire someone who can assess your personal carpet care needs.

Our team uses a thermal extraction system. Basically, we first use extremely hot water and cleaning chemicals to clean the carpet. After that, we use powerful suction to get the dirt and soap out of your carpet. Additionally, the steam used will kill over 95% germs and bacteria. Further, our cleaning solutions work to ensure bacteria is eliminated. The end result will be clean, fresh carpets.

What Mistakes Can I Avoid?

Avoid carpet powders– Many people buy powders because they want to eliminate unwanted odors in their carpet. However, powders often leave residue in the carpet which can damage it over time. Stick to baking soda if you want to remove an unwanted smell.

Do not rub stains– When removing a stain, stick to blotting or dabbing motions. Never rub a stain. This will not remove the stain, it will only rub the stain into the carpet fibers, making it worse.

Test cleaners on a small portion of your carpet– If you decide to use cleaners to remove stains, find a small portion of your carpet that’s out of sight. Apply a small amount of cleaner to make sure the cleaner does not damage or bleach your carpet.

Keep stain sources away from carpet– This may sound obvious, but think ahead and keep common sources of stains away from your carpet. You do not want to bring items like wine, food, or other beverages near your carpet. Eat and drink over hard flooring like tile or wood in your home. The easiest way to deal with a stain is to prevent it in the first place.

Do you need to vacuum before carpet cleaning?

Yes! We always encourage customers to vacuum before the professionals arrive. A regular household vacuum can be used, but done so thoroughly. If this is done, the steam cleaning will be much more effective. Without the layer of pet hair, dust and debris, the steam can easily penetrate and clean your carpet.

How Much Does Carpet Cleaning Cost?

Most companies charge between $25 to $70 per room. Although, most homeowners end up paying around $50 for each room.

Is it Worth Getting Carpets Professionally Cleaned?

Since carpet cleaning is usually around $200-$260 (depending on the number of rooms you are getting cleaned) you won’t be giving up too much. In fact, regular carpet cleaning is a good idea, it will help your carpet last longer. It is the best way to maintain the look and feel of your carpeting.

Is it Better to Shampoo or Steam Clean Carpets?

When a heavy detergent is used to clean carpets, residue can be easily left over. On the other hand, steam cleaning will not only get rid of dirt, but it sanitizes as well. Additionally, carpet dries more quickly when steam is used (4-6 hours depending on air circulation) while shampooing may take longer than 48 hours.

Signs You Need Your Carpet Cleaned

  • It Has Been A Year or More- Even if you consider yourself a “clean person” (careful about spills, don’t wear shoes in the house) carpets still latch onto and collect dirt. Most homeowners make it a rule of thumb to get carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year, more if they have kids and pets. If you have let a year go by since your last cleaning, it’s time to give the professional carpet cleaners in your area a call.
  • Allergy Problems- Have you noticed your allergies becoming worse? If so, you may want to consider your carpets as the culprit. Since carpets collect dust, pet dander and other allergens, this build up can make your allergies worsen. The slightest movement can cause these allergens trapped in the carpet to become airborne. Getting a professional steam cleaning will eliminate these allergens.
  • It Looks Dirty- Sounds simple, right? However, you may get used to looking at your carpet each day and not notice how dirty it has become. A good test can be to move furniture and compare it to high traffic areas. If you notice a big difference, it is probably time to schedule a cleaning. Professional cleaning will help to get all dirt out of your carpet leaving it like new.
  • Stains– Some stains cannot be removed without the help of a professional. Remember, it is best to treat fresh stains, so don’t wait long before calling for help. If you do, there might not be a lot even a professional can do.

Signs You Need New Carpet

Most carpet issues can be resolved with a professional cleaning. However, sometimes its best just to let it go and buy new carpet. Here are some tips to help you decide.

  • Permanent Stains- Things like bleach, wine, tea, paint, and mustard make it near impossible to remove. Most times, these stains are made even worse when they are inevitably rubbed in and made worse. If your carpet is covered in these impossible to remove stains, it may be time to install new carpet
  • Excessive Wear and Tear- If your carpet is full of rips, tears or severe damage, it may be time to remove it. Large rips being covered by rugs are another sign it’s time to get new carpet. If you purchase nylon carpet, it is more resilient and responds better to carpet cleanings.
  • It Has A Lingering Smell- If the odors in your carpet do not go away- ever, even after a professional cleaning, this is a good sign it is time for new carpet. The odors may have just penetrated too deep into the fibers, pad or subflooring. In the end it may be more cost effective to buy new carpet rather than trying to clean each spot that may be causing odor.
  • Worn Out Padding- Is your carpet uneven, wrinkly, or makes a crinkling sound? If so, you may have worn out carpet padding. Old padding can absorb spills and is hard to clean. If your padding is old, it’s probably adding to lingering odors in your home.
  • It’s Old- Carpet tends to lose its texture after about 8-10 years. It also starts to become hard to clean and stay clean. If your carpet is around this age, it may be time to investigate getting new carpet
