How often should I get my carpet cleaned?
Every home is different. Most carpet manufactures recommend your carpet to be professionally cleaned every 12-18 months with a hot water extraction process. This will vary however depending on the usage that your carpet gets. High use areas such as family rooms, stairs and hallways could require cleaning more often. Factors include the number of people, pets, outdoor environment and how well carpet is maintained between professional cleanings. Sometimes these things can contribute to a more frequent cleaning schedule of 6-8 months.
We also advise you check the warranty information on your carpet. Many carpet manufactures require you have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12-18 months in order to keep the warranty valid on your carpet.
How do you charge?
We charge by the square foot and only charge for the areas of carpet that we clean. So if you are wanting some furniture left in place then we’ll will measure around those pieces. If the room will be cleaned wall to wall, meaning moving the furniture or in a vacant room then we will measure the whole room. No reason for you to pay for the whole room being cleaned if you are only requesting the open areas. For specialty services an hourly rate may be implemented instead. This will ALWAYS be discussed with you prior to starting. No surprises. No gimmicks. No hidden fees.
How can I find out what it will cost before the work is done?
We prefer to come to your home and do pre-inspection. That way we can discuss with you exactly what you want to have cleaned. At that time we will measure the areas to be cleaned and inspect for any special issues. We do appreciate having someone present to confirm the areas that will be cleaned, discuss cleaning options, and address any concerns we may encounter during the service. EvercleanNorthwest does have a $175 minimum service charge.
What method do you use and why?
We use what is professionally called Truck Mounted Hot Water Extraction, also known as Steam Cleaning. The cleaning temperature of the water is over 200 degrees, so it does appear to be steam. This method is the preferred choice by the largest carpet manufactures. We choose this method to comply with the requirements of your carpets warranty and we feel it is the superior choice in cleaning residential carpets. Steam Cleaning DOES NOT soak the carpet and pad like some cleaning companies claim.
How long will my carpets take to dry?
The weather plays a role in dry times. Days of higher humidity will cause longer dry times; whereas warmer dry weather will shorten the dry time. In most cases 6-12 hours. However Everclean Northwest’sspecialty equipment and procedure usually reduces this considerably and many of our customers experience dry times of only 3-6 hours. Ceiling fans, floor fans such as box fans can really speed the drying process. On a warm dry day open windows will help as well as turning your central heat fan “ON” from the “AUTO” setting. This will circulate air though out the house.
Should I turn my heat up to speed up the drying?
It is not necessary to turn your heat up unless the weather is extremely cold. The best temperature is usually between 60 & 70 degrees.
