Winter Carpet Cleaning Tips Portland Oregon

Carpet Cleaning Tips:

Can I clean carpets during cold weather, or do they take longer to dry?

  • No, we are trained to clean, sanitize and rinse the carpets to extract out 90 percent of the moister leaving only lightly damp carpet. Even during the winter months the carpets only take 4-6 hours to completely dry. Turning up the heat can help speed up this dry time but is not necessary.

Is it save to walk on the carpet while it may still be damp?

  • Going about your business at home will not damage or hurt the carpet, just walk carefully and use caution going from damp carpet to hard surfaces, your feet or shoes can become slippery and cause you to slip and fall. Also, going from outside to inside can carry dirt or debris on the bottom of you feet and still to the carpet so use our supplied foot coverings or remove your shoes to prevent this from happening.

Will waiting make a difference in how the carpets clean up?

  • Short answer, Yes! Waiting can and will allow soil to embed deep into the carpet fibers allowing them to become stained, worn and dingy making the carpets difficult to clean and look beautify again. It is highly recommended even on lightly used areas to have them cleaned every 12 months. Just because you cant see the soil, oils from fur and feet and dander in and on the carpet it is an important step to ensure long lasting clean carpets and a healthy indoor air quality.
