Carpet cleaning, just like carpets, come in all shapes and sizes. You can clean your carpets using detergents, steam, hot water, foam and chemicals. I am quite sure, there is work done to discover even a more innovative method for carpet cleaning, so keep it together. There are no reasons to not clean you carpets!
If you decide you will get someone to clean your carpets, you should ask what kind of technique they use. Usually, after steam carpet cleaning, the carpets are almost dry, and you will have them back at your house in 24 hours or less. Usually, there is no waiting period before stepping onto it again, once they brought it back, it is ready for use.
Also, some companies may recommend you to clean your carpets very often, so that they don’t lose clients, but do not let them fool you. A yearly wash-up is more than enough, while some sensitive fabric carpets may need washing even more rarely. Also, heavy transited carpets need to be washed twice or even three time per year, but the usual time frame for washing the carpets is once a year.
Also, if you are not comfortable with people getting your carpets out, simply because they are too big to place back, once dry, you can also find companies that clean carpets inside your home. Most of them use steam techniques or strong vacuuming. But, remember, for this to be possible, you need to vacuum the carpets, yourself, first, in order to remove any pet hair and dust or dirt. Also this options will keep you posted since the carpet cannot be moved away, so you will have to wait 24 hours before stepping on it.
Simply put, carpet cleaning companies that come, take your carpet, clean it and deliver it to your house, are far more viable, and require less effort from you. Try it now!
