How Often Should I Get My Carpets Cleaned
Most manufacturers recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned by an NCCA member every 12-18 months. Carpets should be cleaned on a regular basis and before they become heavily soiled. Allowing soil to build up will significantly reduce the life of a carpet.
Can I Clean My Carpets & Upholstery Myself
It is highly recommended that a professional cleaner is used. There are many items available to the public that are advertised for carpet and upholstery cleaning. However, along with these come many risks and the potential of causing irreversible damage. As NCCA members, we have the correct training and knowledge, along with access to professional products, to ensure that a correct and safe job is carried out and the best possible results are achieved.
What Are The Different Methods Of Carpet Cleaning
All cleaning methods are designed to produce good results and each has its place within the industry. Some methods use more water and others more mechanical action. More important however, is the fact that we have the required training and experience to carry out the carpet & upholstery cleaning correctly and safely. As NCCA members, we have a recognised qualification in carpet and upholstery cleaning and have been trained on the use of all cleaning methods.We can advise on the most appropriate method, or combination of methods, for your situation.
Will My Carpets Get Dirty Quicker After Cleaning
Today’s solutions and detergents are manufactured to the highest specifications for quality and effectiveness. Here at Spring Clean Carpets we will only use solutions/detergents designed for the removal of soil from carpets and upholstery and, when used correctly, these will not lead to any rapid re-soiling. Detergents that are not designed for use on carpets and upholstery may cause re-soiling problems.
I have children/pets, will they be affected by cleaning processes/chemicals
Health and safety is of paramount importance in the cleaning industry. Professional cleaning solutions are tested for their effects on the environment and occupants of areas in which they will be used. As NCCA members we will also ensure that the relevant safety procedures are followed during the cleaning process. It is highly recommended that children and pets stay off of a damp carpet until it is completely dry, this will help prevent slip and fall hazards as well as tracking in fresh soil.
How Long Will My Carpet Take To Dry
Drying time depends on many conditions, including how soiled the item was, how much water was used, weather conditions, indoor atmosphere, etc. However, in most normal cases, carpets and soft furnishings should be dry within 6-8 hours. That being said, we leave shoe covers and furniture protectors to ensure the carpet is protected during this time. If drying is a concern mention it to us as we will be able to advise on drying times and, if required, use some specialist techniques to speed up the process.
Please note that there is never an extra charge for this service.
Will All Stains Be Removed From My Carpets
No guarantee can be made that any particular stain will be removed. Some stains permanently damage the carpet fibres and no amount of specialist cleaning will reverse this. We have received advanced training for spot and stain removal and can deal with most problems. If you have a stain you are concerned about, discuss it with us beforehand and we will be happy to advise.
Do I Have To Move Furniture
We are happy to move most furniture on the day. We are not permitted to move televisions, or anything too heavy. We do ask that as many small items as possible are removed from the room, however that being said, it is also not an issue for us to help here.
It is important that any valuable items or furniture containing valuables are moved by the customer, or clearly brought to the attention of the member.
