How often should you have carpet cleaned?

Probably one of the most asked questions that we get is about how often a carpet should be cleaned. There is no easy answer of this though because it depends on your particular situation. Let’s try to answer this question. You could go off of this chart, but my answer will vary a bit.

For starters, lets go with once every year. This is the average time that most consumers should have their carpet cleaned. This would be based on an average three person household. You can either extend that time or reduce it based on your circumstances.

You can add time to that interval if you have no carpet in your living areas, just bedrooms. Carpet in bedrooms requires cleaning less often, unless you have small children or bad pets.

You should subtract time from that interval if you have more than three people in the house, if you have pets or if you smoke. In those cases, you should try to have it cleaned every six months on average.

Of course, all of these times are fluid and your unique situation might dictate a different cleaning interval. When you notice that your carpet is looking a little soiled, it is time. Carpet is designed to hide soil, so when you see it, it is pretty dirty.

Best Dry Cleaning In Dallas

Not all dry carpet cleaning services are the same. You might not know this but there are several different variations of dry carpet cleaning in addition to the one that we use. Be careful, because the results are not great with every method. Here is the breakdown on the different dry carpet cleaning methods used by Dallas dry carpet cleaners.

Method #1

Bonnet Dry Carpet Cleaning: This is the method that we use. It uses the perfect amount of moisture to get your carpet compleetely clean and dry in just a few hours. We first apply an all natural cleaning solution to your carpet. The solution uses natural oxygen to begin breaking down the most complex of stains. We then extract this solution with 100% cotton bonnets on our rotary floor machines. The bonnets reach into the fiber to clean it from all angles. The result is a clean carpet that dries in under one hour. In most cases, we will have your carpet dry before we leave because we also use drying fans to take it to the next level.

Method #2

Encapsulation: There are several companies in Dallas using this method of dry carpet cleaning. In this method, the cleaner will apply a solution to your carpet and then they will use a brush machine to agitate the solution. The solution will absorb the soil and then crystallize. Sounds great right? Problem is, this is where the process ends, they do not extract this solution from your carpet. Ideally it will start to come out of the carpet as you vacuum it over the next several weeks, but this is not a certainty.

Method #3

Dry Powder Cleaning: With this method, the carpet cleaner will apply a powder moistened with detergent to your carpet. They will then agitate the solution with cylindrical nylon brushes and then vacuum the powder out of your carpet. It is a decent process but has a few negatives. For starters, the cleaner can never get all of the powder out of your carpet. You will see it on your feet and socks for weeks if not months. Another drawback is that this tends to be a pricey method because the powder used is expensive.

Do you see why our method is the best? It cleans more thoroughly, leave no residue behind and still gets your carpet dry in just a matter of minutes.  Give us a call or schedule a cleaning online to see for yourself.

Why Dry Carpet Cleaning?

Dry carpet cleaning has many benefits for carpet. Mainly, these benefits are that they prevent the negative effects of steam cleaning but there are additional benefits. Here are the top 6 reasons to have your Dallas carpet dry cleaned.

  1. No mold or mildew.
    Because we use minimal moisture, your carpet will dry quickly and can not grow mold or mildew. With steam cleaning, the carpet gets very wet and can take 24 to 48 hours to dry. Even if it feels dry in a day, moisture can longer at the base of the carpet. This provides the perfect opportunity for mold to grow. Dry cleaning prevents this.
  2. No returning spots.
    The same conditions that promote mold growth also promote spots returning. Steam cleaning can force moisture and soil to the base of the carpet. As the carpet dries, these stains pop back up to the surface. With dry cleaning, your spots are wiped away, not forced down so when they are gone, they stay gone.
  3. No dangerous chemicals.
    Our cleaning machine provides gentle agitation that, combined with our natural oxygen cleaner, removes the toughest of soils. We use no dangerous chemicals or solvents. There is not even an odor.
  4. Your carpet gets dry in a hurry.
    This is especially important for busy families that can not afford down time. With steam cleaning, you may have to go one to two days without using your carpet. With our dry cleaning process, you can put your carpet back to use almost immediately because it will dry in under an hour.
  5. We keep your door closed.
    When you have your carpe steam cleaned, the carpet cleaner has to keep your door open to bring hoses in from their truck. This can let in bugs, hot summer air, cold winter air and can be a security risk. Our portable dry cleaning machines allow us to keep your doors closed and your home safe and secure.
  6. Our process reaches the entire fiber.
    Our machine allows us to physically but gently scrub the carpet fiber, wiping it completely clean. Other processes only tend to clean the upper portion of the fiber.
