Carpet & Rug Cleaning FAQs

What is really living in my carpet?

If not regularly cleaned, your carpet can hold whatever you, your children and your pets have been tracking into your home. Vacuuming can get some of what is living inside your carpet, but your carpet absorbs dust and bacteria that can only be removed through professional cleaning.

How often should I get my carpets cleaned?

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration recommends residents use a professional carpet cleaning every year, though that timeline can change depending on how much traffic your carpet receives, if you have pets, if you smoke or if you have allergies to dust and pollen. You might also want to consider getting your carpets cleaned more often if you live in a rural area where dust and dirt have a higher probability of getting into your home. All Clear has custom made maintenance programs.

Why can’t I clean my own carpets?

Hot water extraction is proven to be the best way to get carpet and rugs thoroughly clean. Rental carpet cleaners don’t get the water hot enough to be effective and, oftentimes, lack the power to suck the dirt out of the carpet, instead spread it around with water. Carpets stay damp longer and when dry, they can be crusty and sticky. And what about your back? I think you have better things to do. With All Clear’s advanced cleaning equipment, we are able to pull all of the dirt and dust out of your carpets and rugs effectively and your carpets will dry faster without leaving behind any residue.
