A professional carpet cleaner has specialized equipment and cleaning agents that can remove stubborn stains. Cleaning your carpets professionally can also extend their lifespan, saving you long-term money.
A carpet's cleaning frequency is largely determined by foot traffic, pets or children, and indoor air pollution. However, it's recommended to have your carpet professionally cleaned every 6-12 months as a general rule.
Before the carpet cleaners arrive, it's recommended that you remove any furniture or items from the carpets to be cleaned. Moreover, you should vacuum the carpets thoroughly in order to remove any loose dirt and debris that may have been left behind.
Cleaning the carpets in your apartment will take about an hour or so, depending on the size of your apartment and the level of cleaning that is required to keep them clean. Most professional cleaners, however, can finish the job within a few hours if given the time to do so.
Most professional carpet cleaners use safe cleaning agents for both humans and pets. Nevertheless, you should be careful not to walk on the carpets immediately after they have been cleaned to give them time to dry completely.
