Tips of the Week: Carpet Cleaning- Fairfax VA


How often should you have your carpet cleaned?

Your answer to this question may be whenever necessary; that could be true depending on your carpet cleaning Fairfax VA needs and circumstances. On an average to help maintain a healthy home or business environment, you should have your carpets cleaned twice a year, once every six months. Germs, bacteria, and dust-mites can accumulate pretty fast possibly causing allergies or respiratory conditions if left uncleaned. If you happen to have heavy traffic, a full house, three or more children and/or pets, you definitely need to have your carpets cleaned three to four times a year, a minimum of once every four months.

If you have a light colored carpet (beige, pink, white, light blue, light green, etc.) and you so happen to spill a dark  colored liquid (for example - grape juice, fruit punch, wine, strawberry soda) on your carpet, simply take a clean white towel, wet one end. Using the 

wet end of the towel, soak up and wipe clean the spilled area. Using the dry end of the towel, blot the area dry. Do this immediately after the spill. If you allow the stain to set, you run the risk of the dark colored spill dying your light colored carpet.

Carpet Cleaning Drying Process:

Deep steam cleaning is a very thorough cleaning process that removes dirt and bacteria from your rugs and carpets. Deep steam cleaning is a widely used and is an effective method in cleaning rugs and carpets. A deep carpet cleaning Fairfax VA performed by a trained experienced technician will leave your carpets damp and they should dry within two to four hours. However, there are some cases that it may take longer. Here are a couple of things you can do to speed up the drying process.

1.     Open a few windows and doors allowing air to circulate through your home or office. Note: Air helps the drying process.

2.     Turn on ceiling and floor fans.

3.     Never cover your carpet with towels, sheets, etc. after a steam cleaning. By doing so you lock in the moisture making it nearly impossible for your carpet to dry in a timely manner. Remember air helps complete the drying process to allow the fibers of your rugs and carpets to breathe.

Everette Carpet Care & Restoration believes that this is not a good practice because of the negative effect covering your carpets have on the carpets drying in a timely manner. We do provide you with shoe covers should you need to walk throughout your home or office. We are one of the leading carpet cleaning companies that use the steam cleaning method. A process, when performed properly, leaves only a minimum amount of moisture. The mist that's left on the carpet after the carpet cleaning dries quicker with air flow from open windows, fans, etc. Covering your carpets after having them steam cleaned only delays the drying time.




  Vacuum Your Carpets and Rugs on a Regular Basis

  A healthy tip in maintaining your carpets and rugs is to vacuum them regularly. You'll be surprised how quickly dust and dirt accumulates in them. It is a good practice to vacuum your home carpets two to three times a week at a     minimum and your office or business carpets (if heavy traffic) at least daily. There are two specific reasons why you want to vacuum your carpets on a regular basis:

  Remember vacuuming helps in maintaining your carpets, but you ultimately need to have them professionally cleaned to remove hidden dirt and bacteria.
