The price I quoted on my Homepage covers the case where the dirt and stains are typical, not excessive. In the extreme case, where I might have to go over an area several times to completely lift the dirt out, I would have to charge you an additional amount. When I arrive at your place, I'll take a look and the carpet condition and let you know in advance if there will be an additional charge. Return to top.
I steam clean carpets and upholstery using the hot water extraction method (steam cleaning) with truck (van) mounted industrial equipment. Return to top.
I have special cleaning agents for people who are sensitive to odors or chemicals, let me know and I'll stop by and you can see if these hyposensitive cleaners are safe for you. Return to top.
Cleaning time is normally 1-2 hours. You can walk on carpet immediately after cleaning and not hurt it. Return to top.
Drying time normally is 4-5 hours - Turning on fans or allowing outside air to flow through your home on nice days will help the carpet dry. Return to top.
While the carpet is damp you can freely walk on it with no lasting effects, your footprints will disappear by vacuuming or grooming the carpet. Return to top.
Moving furniture - Let me know what furniture you need moved. You can move most of the small furniture or all furniture. I do not charge for moving a few items of furniture or if you help move the furniture, and I have EZ glides that make furniture moving a lot easier. If I need a helper to move any items I may charge extra. Return to top.
I can apply Scotch Guard on your carpets or a special protectant on your upholstery for a nominal fee at your request. Return to top.
Yes, I can remove most stains. Most food, drink and normal dirt and traffic stains are removed with my cleaning service. Gum, paint, rust, colored dye stains from kool-aid or fruit drinks or wine require special treatment and usually can be removed. I may charge extra for large stains or multiple stained areas. Note that traffic areas that have turned gray may not restore to full color. Mustard or furniture stains will rarely come out of carpet or rugs. Return to top.
