How often should I clean the carpets?
The more you clean the carpets, the better for you. Carpets get dirty every day – with food, drink spills, dirty shoes, bad odors, cooking odors, dust, or mud. If you have a large family and pets, you should vacuum them as often as possible and also clean the beater brush and change the filters of the vacuum cleaner. Carpet cleaning in the sense of shampooing them is also important. The frequency depends on how dirty carpets get. Do it frequently.
How clean will my carpet get after a professional cleaning?
The best method used by professional carpet cleaners is steam cleaning. This is a deep cleaning process that uses jets of water and carpet shampoo that penetrate down to its backing. What this does is remove dirt, debris and stain that's lodged on to or stuck to the carpet fibers. Couple this with spot treatment on stubborn stains and you'll get a carpet that's going to be cleaner than it has been in a long time.
