7Is there anything I need to do prior to the cleaning service?

We ask you to vacuum your carpets before we arrive to do your cleaning. We also ask that you take all small breakables off the tops of your furniture and place them in a safe place. If you have china cabinets or very heavy furniture, we ask that you empty them so they can be safely moved. We will clean up to or under them if you choose to not empty them.

Please be aware that while we are fully insured, we cannot replace memories. Please remove any important treasures to a safe place.

8Will you remove all my stains?
Let me start by defining the difference between a spot and a stain: a spot is any foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) that is removable by standard cleaning methods. (The foreign material is on or around the carpet fiber) A stain is foreign material (soil, liquid, etc.) on carpet that is not usually removable by standard cleaning methods. (The foreign material has penetrated ‘soaked into’ fiber and has changed or damaged the fiber itself) Some stains may be very difficult or impossible to remove or have cleaned.
9Do I need to provide any cleaning supplies?
The only thing we will need from you is a cold water hook-up. Other than that we have everything covered! Our trucks are fully stocked with the latest environmentally friendly cleaning solutions. We also ensure that every truck is equipped with state-of-the-art tools to speed up the cleaning process while servicing your property at the upmost quality.
10What kinds of cleaning products do you use? Are they environmentally friendly?

Our goal is to provide the most environmentally friendly solution on each and every project. We do this to ensure that anyone that comes in contact with the cleaning solutions- regardless if it is your pet, family member, employee or yourself, will be protected and safe.

We use green cleaning solutions because of their benefits. They keep our technicians and clients safe, while protecting the environment.

The benefits of green cleaning outweigh any of the perks that harsh chemical cleaners may seem to offer. In fact, with many of the new cleaning products out on the market, many green cleaning products outperform their unsafe counterparts when used side-by-side.

11What do I do after the cleaning is done?
Your carpet should be dry to the touch in approximately 6 to 8 hours. Please leave all tabs and blocks in place for at least 24 hours. The weight of the furniture slows the drying process under the tabs and blocks. After the carpet is completely dry, please run your vacuum over your carpet. There is no cleaning company that can say they remove 100% of the soil in your carpet. As the carpet dries, some of the soil is wicked up and is lying loosely on top of the carpet. Vacuuming your carpet will remove this soil and is really the final step in carpet cleaning.
