Vancouver Carpet Cleaning: Frequently Asked Questions

June 15th, 2018 | by Angelo |    0   

The Vancouver carpet cleaning technicians at Angelo’s FabriClean are often asked how to care for carpets. With over 25 years of experience, they know the best techniques for carpets and rugs of all types.

First off there’s the question of frequency. How often should a carpet be cleaned? Contrary to popular belief, regular cleaning will not wear out a carpet. Quite the opposite—ignoring dirt and allowing it to build up will wear down fibres far more over time than any amount of cleaning. Therefore, Angelo’s recommends a good deep clean at least once a year.

Angelo’s uses a hot water steam extraction method when cleaning carpets, the most recommended method in the industry, and only uses the best green products while doing it—that is, eco-friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable.

Once cleaned, a steamed carpet can take between two and six hours to dry, depending on carpet thickness, weather, and air circulation. Customers are able to walk on the carpet immediately afterwards, but should wear clean socks or light-coloured rubber soled shoes to prevent oils from feet getting into the damp carpet.

Some customers ask whether adding stain protection is good value for money, and the answer is yes. When applied properly, these products seal in the pores of fabrics and not only help keep spots from soaking in and making permanent stains, but also make vacuuming more effective.

Of course, customers can do their part in maintaining the health and longevity of a carpet by vacuuming regularly. Even once a week can make a huge difference.
