Carpet Cleaning FAQ – Sycamore Cleaning Service
How often should i clean my carpets?
Many factors can determine how often you should clean your carpets. As with the clothes we wear, carpets also require special attention and the right cleaning process to be carried out, therefore affecting cleaning intervals. Please check with your carpet supplier or manufacturer if possible for any “special requirements”. We always complete a inconspicuous spot test before your carpet clean to ensure the best product is applied to your carpet and suited to it.
It is wrong to believe that by not having your carpet cleaned, it will pro-long its life. Carpets are not covered with a “mystical barrier” from new. The truth is after 2, 5 or 10 years your carpet will contain a unbelievable amount of grit or dirt. Not forgetting millions of bacteria, fungi spores and mites! Grit causes an abrasive action within the carpet fibre. This has the opposite effect over the years, therefore shortening the life of the carpet.
I`m going on holiday, can you clean while i am away?
This is a another very popular Carpet Cleaning FAQ request. We can clean while you are away and you can return to a clean fresh home and carpets. We can arrange to collect the key from you before you leave or we can collect/return the key to a designated family member or trusted friend. Whatever you decide we will make it a hassle free carpet clean.
Can you clean my carpets while im am at work?
78% of customers prefer this option so they can return to a clean home and carpets and relax without the hustle and bustle of the main carpet clean itself. This also avoids you needing to lose a valuable day off or holiday. We can collect and return the key at a time to suit you, unless instructed to a alternative arrangement.
How long does it take for the carpet to dry?
We use industrial carpet dryers when necessary to increase drying times to an average of 2/3 hours. Most carpets are dry to the touch after this time. However different fabrics, thickness and mix differ in drying times, however carpets are bone dry the following day. Also, weather can also have an adverse affect on the drying times as well as room location. We recommend keeping windows etc open (if possible) during your carpet cleaning to help with the drying process. By keeping the air moving this will increase the carpet drying time. We will provide you with plastic shoe covers if needed. Please view our service page for information about Carpet Cleaning.
