Common places to experience this are entrances, hallways, and even stairs. These areas can be restored through our professional carpet cleaning methods and technologies. Without proper and regular carpet cleaning, the dirt settles and alters the appearance of your carpet (affecting the texture and composition of the carpet), as well as increasing the risk of bacteria accumulating and which may cause it to spread easier.
This factor is essential to consider in Fall and Winter months when we spend so much more time indoors with shoes on.

After the soils are removed from the carpet, it will be groomed to eliminate the matting of the carpet and clean it with the help of cleaning agent solutions. Lastly, the drying process of the carpet should take no longer than 23 hours to dry under normal temperature and humidity conditions. The ideal dry time for a carpet is around four to eight hours on average. A professional carpet cleaning company will follow these steps on all cleaning jobs.

The importance of carpet cleaning services
Many business owners believe in the common misconception that vacuuming alone is enough to remove dirt and debris from their carpets. They are constantly wondering: is it worth getting carpets professionally cleaned? Unfortunately, vacuuming alone will never be sufficient. Indeed, carpets are prone to the accumulation of dust, pollutants, and allergens that can trigger allergies and asthma.
Regular professional carpet cleaning is essential for the health of your employees, your guests, and your corporate image.
Why use commercial carpet cleaning services
Time and money saving
If your household or workplace is prone to spills or accidents that might be difficult to clean, a small machine that cleans may be a worthwhile investment. However, for more general and deep cleaning purposes of your entire carpet surface, it is HIGHLY recommended to have a professional do it. They will always do it quicker and cheaper than doing it yourself. By hiring a professional cleaning company, you are reducing your risk of damaging the carpeting by incorrectly cleaning or using the wrong product.
Clean workplace appearance
There are many compelling reasons as to why you must maintain office carpet clean. Among them is the cleanliness of your workplace, as it is essential since it directly plays a role in how your business appears to your clients and employees. It is in your best interest to send the right message about your business. A clean work environment can uplight the spirits and enhance the mood of everyone, employees and clients alike. Carpets are a vital part of the environment and aid in keeping the workplace attractive and pleasant to be in. Cleaning the carpets regularly also keeps bacteria, bugs, and germs away, resulting in fewer sick days.

Types of carpet
There are plenty of different types of carpet and carpet styles, and yours may have different characteristics to another carpet. Certain types of carpet fibers are more resilient and are capable of rebounding from matting.
Thus, depending on the type of carpet installed, a carpet cleaning company may be able to restore or improve the appearance of your carpet. For example, polyester carpet is a type of carpet that will not rebound after matting. If matting occurs on this type of carpet, it is time to consider replacing the carpet.
The four most common carpet types are:
- The most common carpet type is Nylon. It has earned its popularity due to its durability and resistance to wear from heavy foot traffic. The drawback is that it is more difficult to remove stains, so some carpets include a stain-resistant treatment.
- The next most common carpet type is Olefin, which is mostly resistant to moisture and mold. It is the best choice for basement or outdoor carpeting.
- Wool is the premium choice in carpeting and is the only natural fiber that is made into carpets. It’s durable and stain-resistant, and it’s considered an eco-friendly floor covering option.
- Acrylic carpeting is used mostly as an inexpensive alternative to wool. It is not as widely accessible as Olefin or Nylon.

Carpet cleaning methods
Dry carpet cleaning
One of the methods used for our cleaning process is our low-moisture cleaning carpet cleaning technology. It is commonly known as dry carpet cleaning, which is designed to maintain consistent appearance levels and extend your carpet’s lifespan. Using low-residue chemistry allows us to eliminate common issues like sticky carpets, unpleasant odors, and difficult to remove carpet stains. Oftentimes, dry-cleaning and “very low moisture” cleaning systems can be faster, more environmentally friendly, and less labor-intensive than wet-extraction systems.
Moreover, with smart and routine cleaning of your carpets, we can guarantee carpet beautification results, as clean carpets are visually pleasing and healthier than poorly maintained commercial carpets.
Encapsulation carpet cleaning
Steam carpet cleaning
Our hot water extraction cleaning, which is also known as steam cleaning, involves a combination of hot water and cleaning agents that are then injected into the fibers of your carpet at high pressure. As the cleaning solution comes in contact with the carpet, it begins to break down the soil and bacteria in your carpet fibers, so we can then safely extract them.
This technique can also “fluff” some matted carpet fibers, resulting in fresher and softer carpeting. This method is usually the best method to clean carpets, which can remove as much as 90% of dirt and bacteria from carpeting.
Unlike the other cleaning methods used by our competitors, such as carpet shampooing, hot water extraction will not damage your carpet fibers or leave behind any unwanted residue from harsh detergents.
Carpet bonnet cleaning, also called spin pad carpet cleaning or absorbent pad carpet cleaning or carbonated carpet shampoo cleaning, is simply an adaptation of hard floor spray buffing to carpets. Even though it is not true “dry cleaning”, many people using this system call it “dry cleaning”, which is highly deceptive, because it definitely is not “dry”.
Professional carpet cleaning equipment
A cleaning professional will know just the right equipment for your type of carpet. Selecting the right equipment, cleaning agents, and techniques because some cleaning products can leave an undesired residue that attracts soil.
Picture your hairdresser; they have an array of different tools and cleaning solutions meant for different hair types. Their cosmetology license grants them access to products that can only be sold in specialty hair stores with the help of a license. The same situation applies to carpet cleaning companies and their equipment.
An expert will be able to handle tough to remove stains caused by water damage and how to treat sensitive fabrics. They will also have access to tools that you will not be able to rent at your local hardware store, such as UV lights for spotting pet stains. Another example of advanced equipment is the machine used for steam cleaning, also known as hot water extraction cleaning.
How often should I have my carpets professionally cleaned?
On average, to keep your carpet looking its best, we recommend having your carpet professionally deep cleaned every 9 to 12 months. The frequency is a general guideline and can vary based on the traffic and circumstances of your carpet. Some factors that may impact how often you may require to clean your carpet are: which color is your carpet, if you vacuum regularly, if you allow pets on the carpet, among others.
Carpet cleaning examples
Office carpet cleaning
The carpeting of office space will benefit from a preventive cleaning program where you will maintain routine and preventive carpet cleaning. This will allow your carpet to be professionally cleaned at regular intervals. The cleaning of each area will differ based on the state of the carpet, usage, and the daily foot traffic.
The idea behind a preventive cleaning program is just like a regular yearly doctor visit by investing a little in ensuring that you are in good shape so you can avoid big and costly treatments down the road. Preventative cleanings will also maintain your carpets appearing cleaner for longer periods of time and avoid matting.
For lighter traffic areas such as boardrooms and conference rooms, twice a year might be enough. On the other hand, heavy traffic areas like entrances and ground floor halls may require multiple cleaning a year. The more, the better, but at least once a season.
How much is carpet cleaning?
For an office it will largely depend on the size but the average cost will vary from 300$ to 650$ for a small office and prices going up to 7000$ and more for a very large office or commercial space.
The primary advantage of a regular carpet cleaning is keeping away from possible issues like mold, high levels of dirt etc. In the event that you disregard it for a really long time, the expense to replace your rug or carpet will run somewhere in the range of $750 and $2,500 per room.

The best and most basic way to remove a stain is to act quickly. The faster you act is, the more you are likely that you will be successful in eliminating the carpet stain. If there is any physical debris, such as food bits, remove it with a fork or spoon. Avoid using too much force as it will go deeper into the carpet fibers and may cause additional damage. Next, dab gently with a damp cloth or paper absorbent paper towel. This process may take several minutes. The next step is to use any stain-removal solution. Lastly, rinse the affected area with cool water and dab again to dry. A stubborn spill may require multiple attempts.
Each carpet stain tells its own story. The coffee stain under your office desk is your Monday’s spilled coffee and that other one over there? Your lunch soup met the floor in an unfortunate way. Even a home without children or pets is vulnerable to at least one spill or unpleasant smudge.
When this happens, you may find yourself panicking and trying to rub and dab the excess liquid out of your carpet to no avail. No matter the spill, the process of how to remove carpet stains remains pretty much the same. To remove carpet stains at home, it is best that you blot the stain with a clean and slightly damp cloth. Ensure to blot rather than rub as it can permanently damage the carpet fibers. Repeat this until the cloth no longer picks up any more color from the stain. In the instance that plain water does not work, move on to a carpet stain remover or create your own DIY cleaning solution.
Spray the remaining stain with the carpet stain remover, store-bought, or homemade. No matter what the carpet cleaning solution that you are using, make sure to over-wet the stain. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

The short answer is YES. You should always hire a professional carpet cleaning company to clean your carpets.
If you are considering cleaning your carpets, you might be wondering if you should take a day to clean your carpets by yourself to save a buck or if you should invest in a professional service.
Since vacuuming is not enough to get stains and bacteria, you might be thinking about renting your own carpet cleaning machine, such as Rug Doctor, at your nearest hardware store. But, a professional will always do a much better job than you can manage with a rented machine that still requires you to purchase the correct cleaning solution, which drives up your cost.
The ugly truth is that you are also not going to be able to get a quality cleaning. Self carpet cleaning machines have terribly low water pressure and weak vacuuming power. This may leave you with a poorly dried and smelly carpet. These rented machines are meant to do surface carpet cleaning rather than the deep cleaning which professional carpet cleaners will do. To clean your carpet well, a truck mount carpet cleaning system is the only right option.
