Can I get an exact price over the phone?
One of the biggest misconceptions with carpet cleaning is that you
should be able to get an exact quote over the phone. I wish this
was true, but it isn't. First, honest, reputable carpet cleaning
companies usually price cleaning by the square foot, this way a
company can include all the steps necessary in their price to thoroughly
clean your carpet without extra charges being added on after the
If you would like me to tell you an exact cost of cleaning your
carpet, I need to know the exact number of square feet that you
want cleaned. You'll be glad to know that the carpet area to be
cleaned is not nearly as great as most people think. For example,
if you want your entire home cleaned and your home is 2000 sq. ft.,
the amount of carpeting might be only 800 sq. ft. to 1200 sq. ft. This is because
most home measurements are outdoor measurements. Plus I make deductions
for furniture you don't want moved such as wall units, beds and
other unmovable pieces of furniture.
Other factors we take into account include the type of carpeting.
Certain types are just harder to clean. The amount of soiling is
important. Carpeting that hasn't been cleaned for five years will
take longer than carpeting that was cleaned just six months ago.
Finally, how much furniture do want moved? If we move the furniture,
the price will include that labor.
Why do you recommend cleaning our carpet every 6 months?
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE read the info found under FOR
YOU HEALTH. Most people will call us when they notice that their
carpet is beginning to look soiled. That's a very good reason. After
all, you've made a tremendous investment in your home and you want
it to look its very best.
Unfortunately the dirt in your carpet has lot's company. Bacteria,
dust mites and germs also call your carpet "home". Regular

How soon can I walk on the carpet?
Your carpets will be slightly damp to the touch when we leave and
will be completely dry in about 2 to 3 hours, depending on humidity
and air circulation in your home. Using a fan can decrease drying
time below 3 hours; and leaving your house closed up will extend
Try to keep pets, children, and heavy traffic off the carpet during
the drying process. However, if you must walk on the damp carpet,
please use the protective booties that we can provide. Wait 24 hours
before removing Styrofoam blocks or protective tabs that our technicians
have placed under the furniture to protect the carpet.
I've heard that carpeting re-soils more quickly after it has
This is true if hire the "cheap guys". They're cheap because
they have to save time and money. So they have to use the cheapest
cleaning solutions and the cheapest equipment. Most won't provide
the proper training for their technicians. And most do not even
realize that soft water aids in the removal detergent residues.
If detergent is left in the carpet, accelerated re-soiling will
occur. We use the most thorough method of cleaning that rinses after
the pre-spray process. This method removes deep down soil and leaves
no detergent to accelerate the re-soiling process.
Why is a your system better than a rental or home-unit?
Personal extractors are good for emergency large-scale spot removal.
However, none of them can replace the deep cleaning of our
Do you move furniture?
For liability reasons, items we cannot move: China cabinets, full
bookcases, entertainment and electronic systems of any size, pianos,
sofa beds, or other extremely heavy belongings.
The Perfect Care Package includes moving most furniture.
Beds, dressers, and night stands can also moved under this pricing
structure. We ask that all fragile or breakable items be removed
from any furnishings you want us to move prior to our arrival.
The Ultimate Protection Package includes moving up to 8
pieces of furniture. Again, we ask that all fragile or breakable
items be removed from any furnishings you want us to move prior
to our arrival.
What about reoccurring spots?
If a spot returns, it usually happens within a few days after the
cleaning. It may have been oily or sticky and was not completely
removed, or "wicked back" due to the nature of the spot,
or possibly it's not a spot, but a permanent stain. If you experience
this, simply call us within 30 days of your cleaning and we will
return as soon as possible to re-clean any spots.

If you have spots or small areas that have been discolored from
urine or vomit, we carry a special solution that may remove it,
depending on the type of carpet fiber.
