Carpet Cleaning FAQ

Whether you’ve just installed fresh new carpets or whether you’re moving into an existing home with some carpeted floors, understanding a few key facts can help prepare you for caring for your carpets correctly. Learn the answers to a few most common carpet cleaning FAQ.

How Often Should Carpet be Cleaned?

This is a particularly common carpet cleaning FAQ. A standard recommendation for how often carpet should be cleaned is 6 to 12 months. In households with only adults where regular vacuuming and maintenance is performed regularly, a recommendation of 12 months is often accurate. However, households with pets and children or particularly high-traffic areas will likely need professional carpet cleaning more frequently than this. Once you’ve had your carpets for a while, you’ll likely be able to tell when simply vacuuming is no longer sufficient.

What are the Signs That My Carpet Needs Cleaning?

If it’s been a while since your last cleaning and you’re not sure whether or not it’s time to bring the professionals back in, pay extra attention the next time you vacuum. Does your carpet look clean afterwards? If you’ve just vacuumed and your carpet still looks or smells dirty, the chances are high that there’s quite a bit of dirt build-up within the fibers. You may also notice that the carpet doesn’t stand up when you walk on it, or that it’s developing an odor. If you notice any of these signs, schedule a professional cleaning as soon as you can.

How Long Does Carpet Cleaning Take?

Carpet cleaning is not as time consuming as some may assume. In general, it will take about twenty minutes per room, but the overall time required can vary depending on furniture that needs to be moved, the size of the room, the amount of soil within the carpets, and any stains that need special treatment.

How Long Does it Take Carpets to Dry After Cleaning?

The time it takes for your carpets to dry after a cleaning will depend on your local climate, but in most areas will range from three to 24 hours. You can speed up this timeline by increasing the airflow to the room with the help of fans or your heating and cooling system.

With clean rubber-soled shoes, you can walk on your carpets before they’ve finished drying, but it’s best to let them dry as completely as possible before diving back into normal use. Leave furniture blocks and protective barriers where the carpet cleaning professionals placed them until your carpet is completely dry.

The service tech, Lloyd explained each step of the cleaning process and made certain that I understood the procedures. I will always call on Zerorez for my carpet cleaning needs.

    I was able to get an estimate and book my appointment online. Fabio was here the next day and called me to let me know he would arrive within 15 minutes which was very appreciated. He was friendly, courteous, professional and did an excellent job of cleaning my white carpet even getting out an old stain from 2 years ago. I love that there is no residue on my carpet. Great job Fabio and ZeroRez!!!!

How Should You Prepare for a Carpet Cleaning?

Vacuuming right before having your carpets cleaned is highly recommended in order to get the best results. However, if you can’t make this step work for your schedule, you can skip it. At the very least, remove physical debris from the carpets.

Most carpet cleaning services will move furniture as necessary in order to access your carpets. Remove trinkets, lamps, electronics, or any other small items that sit on tabletops or standing shelves to make this furniture removal quicker and protect your belongings from accidental falls.

If you have pets and are able to secure them in a separate area of the house, this can make it easier for professionals to access your carpet and clean it thoroughly without the interruption of furry friends and paw prints.

Should you Vacuum Right After Carpet Cleaning?

Depending on the carpet cleaning service you choose, having your carpets professionally cleaned can still result in left-behind soil on the surface of the carpet after drying. Once your carpet is completely dry, vacuum your carpets in order to remove any residue that may have been loosened and left behind.

With Zerorez, your carpet cleaning team will utilize a non-toxic and highly effective carpet cleaner and technology that won’t leave any dirt or residue behind on your carpets after cleaning.
