Frequently Asked Questions

How much should carpet cleaning cost?

You can expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $100 per room for professional carpet cleaning. Carpet cleaning is typically charged at $0.25 per square foot of carpet.

Why hire a professional carpet cleaner?

Even if you’re diligent in vacuuming your carpeting and rugs, there are still particles and stains that regular vacuum cleaners just can’t remove. Professional carpeting not only removes them, it also extends the life of your carpet, improves its appearance and helps keep your home allergen-free.

What’s trapped in my carpet?

Did you know that your carpet could contain up to four times its weight in dirt and dust? Dirt isn’t the only thing lurking deep in your carpeting, either. Dust mites, pollen grains, pet dander, dead skin cells, bacteria and VOCs can all lurk in carpeting for long periods of time, staying there until removed.

How long do you have to stay off carpet after cleaning?

Because we utilize the effective Bonnet low moisture cleaning method, our work typically requires two hours at most to dry.

For common steam cleaning (that most cleaners use), avoid heavy traffic and keep children and pets off the carpet for at least 6 hours after cleaning. If you must walk across the carpet to get to another part of the house, do it 30 minutes after cleaning it by removing your shoes and wearing a pair of clean white socks to protect the carpet.

Why is professional carpet cleaning so effective?

Professional carpet and rug cleaning is effective because it utilizes high-strength vacuum equipment, as well as powerful sanitization techniques. For example, Eco Fresh Carpet Cleaning uses orbital scrubbers to release deeply-embedded contaminants, while a cleaning solution neutralizes them. No household vacuum can match!

How often should you hire carpet cleaners?

We recommend having your carpets and rugs cleaned every few months if you have kids and/or pets. For homes without kids or pets, once or twice a year is usually good. At a minimum, we recommend an annual cleaning. We also urge homeowners to get their carpets cleaned seasonally (Spring/Fall), when stains or debris are more prone to becoming trapped in the carpet.

What do you use to deep clean carpets?

We use an Eco Fresh carpet cleaning system and orbital scrubbing pads to clean your carpet. This combination allows us to adjust for different carpet styles, without compromising cleaning power. Orbital pad cleaning is highly rated by the Carpet and Rug Institute as an effective deep cleaning system.

Is carpet cleaning safe?

Absolutely! Eco Fresh Carpet Cleaning takes pride in using only environmentally-safe, pet-safe, child-safe cleaning products and techniques. Moreover, our non-residual cleaners are quick-drying (<2 hours), leaving your carpets and rugs ready for traffic again in a short time.

In short: Yes, we always vacuum first! The carpet should be vacuumed thoroughly before starting to clean…it will also fluff the carpet fibers, loosening deep down dirt from within.
