How soon can I walk on my carpets after they have been cleaned?

Depending on the process used, most carpeting will be dry within 2-4 hours. There are many factors that play a role in the drying time such as temperature, air flow, humidity, fiber type and the degree of treatment involved in the cleaning. We recommend you stay off damp carpets if possible.

How often should I have my carpets professionally cleaned?

Carpet cleaning frequency will depend on the usage of the particular room. Carpets are a lot like automobile tires—some wear out faster than others, depending on how they are used and cared for. Today, while soil removal and appearance are still a primary concern, cleaning for health is also a major factor. Carpets are like sinks—the soil and bacteria levels continue to rise until drained (cleaned). We recommend either quarterly or semiannual cleaning for more heavily used rooms and or areas. Yearly cleaning is normally satisfactory for lesser used rooms.

Household Frequency
2 adults Every 6-12 months
w/smokers Every 6 months
w/children or pets Every 3-6 months
w/children and pets Every 2-4 months
