Frequently Asked Questions
- How often should I have my fine wool (Oriental) rugs cleaned?
Rugs with very light traffic, every 2-3 years. Rugs with moderate traffic, children or pets should be cleaned annually. Wool rugs have a great ability to hide large amounts of dirt and dust, even with regular vacuuming. Having your rugs cleaned regularly is healthier for you and will prolong the life of your rugs.
- What about dry-cleaning my rugs?
Rugs have been wet cleaned forever. Oriental Rug cleaning associations all recommend wet cleaning. When using a dry cleaning process, the chemical used will not be able to be thoroughly rinsed out of the rug. Just people walking on the rug can lift the remaining chemical residue into the air.
- Is it true that a rug can have up to one pound of dry particles per square foot?
Yes, some rugs not all can have a pound of dry particles per square foot. It all depends on how much traffic is on the rug. These dry particles lesson the appearance of the rugs and also can be the reasons you are having allergies. Rugs should be cleaned regally to prevent this from happening.
- Why should I have my carpet and upholstery cleaned?
The first reason is health. Clean carpet and fabrics make a healthier home. The second reason, cleaned carpets and fabric last longer. Abrasives in the soiling, often not picked up by vacuuming, scratch and weaken yarns and thread. Thirdly, for appearance. Pride Carpet Cleaning will remove unsightly stains, thereby restoring carpets and fabrics to like new condition.
- How often should I clean my carpets and upholstery?
We recommend once a year for moderate traffic areas, and twice a year for high traffic areas. Allowing textiles to get overly soiled could result in irreversible damage.
- Is it true that having carpets cleaned will lead to quicker re-soiling?
No, not if carpets are cleaned properly. Unfortunately, the industry is blighted with fraud, where short cuts are common. Pride Carpet Cleaning uses the finest mild cleaning conditioners and then uses a special rinsing agent that removes all residues from the carpet and upholstery. Re-soiling is not an issue when all these steps are properly applied.
- Do you recommend carpet and fabric protector be applied?
Yes. These protectors can keep stains from lodging in the fiber because the protector is already there. Protectors can help your furnishings repel both wet and dry soil making them easier to spot clean. Your vacuuming is more effective too.
- Can I walk on my carpets right away?
Yes, just slip-on the booties we leave behind for you. Just be careful when walking on hard surfaces, they may seem slippery.
- How long will it take my carpets to be completely dry?
It usually takes about 4 hours. However, you can shorten this drying time by lowering your air conditioner temperature and turning ceiling fans on high.
