“Now a days, high quality and low price are two entities that rarely come in pair”. This statement is especially true when it comes to carpet cleaning services. All carpet cleaning companies know what they’re worth and they price their services accordingly.

Would you buy the cheapest carpet available for your home? Of course not! You would get a quality, long lasting carpet. So why settle for the cheapest priced cleaning for your quality item! Usually, with low price and low quality cleaning, will actually damage a fine quality carpet. Many consumer have seen how their expensive carpet being damage in many occasions. So what have you really save? We also notice that do it yourself machines and the cleaning agent used by the homeowner usually leaves stubborn stain and residue that actually attracts soil faster than if it were not cleaned at all. Please remember, “Your Satisfaction Is Our Continuously Goal”. When we’re being referred by your friends, neighbors and relatives, they tell one another that we cost more but we’re definitely worth it.

>>Why should I have my carpet and upholstery professionally cleaned ?

Maintenance: A clean carpet will last longer than a soiled carpet. If you follow manufacturers recommendations of cleaning your carpet at least once every 12 months, your carpet can last up to twice as long or longer comparing to if it is not cleaned. Abrasive dry soil that your vacuum cleaner attempt to clean will scratch and abrade the yarns. New carpet warranty requires professional cleaning once every 12 months or even earlier and they even specify the use of ‘hot water extraction system’ Los Angeles Cleaning Services uses in cleaning the most stubborn soil removal.

Beautiful Appearance: Spots and soil buildup is embarrassing and unsightly. Frequent cleaning and vacuuming can make your carpet look good and last longer. We are trained and experienced professionals from Los Angeles Cleaning Services use the finest products and equipment available for the most stubborn spot and soil removal. We are the experts!

Healthier Home: You keep your home clean and healthy. Contaminants may without you knowing it fall into your carpet that acts as a large filter and we have our method of cleaning and extracting these unwanted guests. Indoor air quality is becoming a major concern to your health. Let us explain how carpet can help keep the air you breathe cleaner. Carpet takes in deposits trapping bio-pollutants and contaminants. However, when these filters (carpet) become full with contaminants, the filters must be cleaned or replaced. Since carpet is the most expensive furnishing in your home or business, cleaning is first recommended. Professional cleaning of carpet and rugs not only extends the life of the carpet, but can also help protect and extend the lives of you and your family members as well. If these contaminants were not thoroughly removed there is a potential threat to cause a variety of health problems.

So protect your family’s health by creating a regular maintenance program that fits easily into your household needs and budget. And remember that routine professional cleaning is essential to maintaining a healthy home and work environment.

>>Why does low priced carpet cleaning often leave you shortchanged ?

1. Volume: Low price cleaners survive on volume – which means they get in and get out fast! If your carpet cleaner isn’t taking the time required to pre-treat soiled areas, clean spot stains and treating thorough rinse cleaning solutions and soils from your carpet, then you are being shortchanged.

2. Employees: Low price cleaners cannot afford to pay wages to attract long-term and dependable employees. High employee turnover is common and leads to poor quality workmanship from under-trained cleaners. It takes time and experience to train and become a top notched cleaning technician. If you see a constant stream of new faces from your cleaning company, chances are you’re not getting the professional to do your job.

3. Low Quality Equipment: Low price cleaners could survive on slim profit margins. This often leads to using low quality cleaning agents and equipment that is in disrepair. Such agents and equipment cannot perform a quality job. If your cleaning company isn’t using the best available cleaning agents or equipment then your job is not properly done.

4. Technology/Education: Low priced cleaners often do not have the time, money or manpower to invest in technology. Carpet cleaning technology constantly requires new equipment, safer more effective products and advanced cleaning techniques. Formal education of technicians is very costly but necessary to ensure you are getting your money’s worth. If your cleaning company does not provide formal training courses for their technician then your job is not professional.

5. Guarantees: We are all familiar with the saying, “A guarantee is only as good as the company that stands behind it”. If your cleaning company doesn’t have a track record that says they’ll be available today, tomorrow and more importantly next year to stand behind their work, then the job is not guaranteed.

6. Premature Replacement: The number one reason carpet is replaced prematurely is due to wear and tear caused by frequent use without maintenance and inefficient cleaning. Poor cleaning leaves dirt and grit behind that act as an abrasive to carpet fibers. This leads to wear patterns and ugly traffic lanes. Most quality carpeting is designed to last for at least 15 years, however if you’re considering replacement after 3 or 5 years, then it is the poor cleaning that is costing you many times more than you could ever hope to save by engaging the service of a low priced cleaning company.

>>Do you move furniture when I cleaning my carpet ?

Yes, we can handle all the furnitures however there will be an additional charge! We can move the sofa, love seat, large chairs, dining room table and other moveable items. We clean around kitchen appliances and large heavy furniture like pianos, china, cabinets, entertainment centers, bookcases, grandfather clocks and most desks. In bedrooms, we generally clean around most beds and dressers because space is limited. We carefully move all the furniture and put it back in place. However, we do ask that you remove all breakables such as lamps, knick-knacks, and photo frames.

>>How often should my carpet be cleaned ?

Carpets should be professionally cleaned yearly. Medical Practitioner and Doctors recommend that people with allergies and asthma should have their carpeting, drapes and upholstered furniture washed every 3 to 6 months. Since allergens are always in the air, regular cleaning will be necessary to keep the allergen levels down. Vacuuming alone will not do the trick. Professional cleaning is the key to killing dust mites that is the number one cause of allergies within the indoor environment. We recommend cleaning residential carpet with medium traffic area at least once a year. However, only you can determine how often to have your carpets cleaned will depend on your lifestyle and budget.

Note: Carpet protector is strongly recommended as it can prevent many permanent stains, assist in resisting traffic area damage and make future cleaning more effective. Regular foot traffic removes much of the factory protection from your carpet, leaving your carpet unprotected that could allow permanent stains, premature wear and cause a lower appearance level.

>>What do I do after my carpeting has been cleaned ?

Immediately after cleaning: Floors can be slippery after cleaning. Please be careful when walking from the carpet to a hard surface until the carpeting is thoroughly dry. Vacuum carpet anytime only after a 24-hour period.

>>I have allergies and am worried if the chemical that you use will bother me ?

The solutions that we use are environmentally friendly, completely nontoxic and are safe for people with allergies, children and pets. Rugs and furniture can harbor soil and other contaminates. Properly cleaning your carpet and furniture will remove the built up soil and contaminates to improve indoor air quality and reduce allergens.

>>Will your equipment scratch my floors, walls or baseboards ?

No. We take special care and precautions to ascertain nothing is damaged while we’re in your home. Fine floors and white painted trim are not a problem with out professional. We take great pride in our work.

>>Will my carpets shrink ?

Absolutely not! Before carpets would shrink due to the usage of natural fiber as carpet backing. Natural fibers would shrink during the drying process. In recent years carpets are manufactured with synthetic backings that eliminates shrinking.

>>Do you guarantee to remove my carpet all the spots and stains ?

We are highly successfully treating most spots. A spot is something foreign on the carpet or upholstery that can be removed. A stain is something remaining after we have exhausted removing all possible spot. It’s impossible to predict the outcome prior to cleaning due to the level of stains so we are unable to guarantee total stain removal. However we pride ourselves with our high level of success that remnant spot stain is reduce to the minimum.

>>Can I walking on damp carpet ?

If possible avoid walking on damp carpet. If this is not advisable on it with the use of slippers or sandals, but you may walk on the carpet with clean white socks. If you must go in and out over the damp carpet, wipe the sole of your shoes with a wet cloth each time before walking on carpet since dirt will track off on damp carpet easily.

Be VERY CAREFUL walking onto a hard surface (tile, vinyl or wood) after stepping over damp carpet can be slippery!

>>How long will my carpet take to dry ?

Drying time varies depending on the thickness of pile and fibers, the weather conditions and the air circulation in your home. The normal drying time is between 4 to 8 hours for your carpet to completely dry.

>>How to let your carpets drying faster ?

Adjust thermostat to 72 degrees, or more appropriate with open windows.

Turn off humidifiers on furnace.

Turn your thermostat fan control setting to “On.”

Turn on all ceiling fans (make sure air blows down.)

Turn on dehumidifier or air conditioning

Run floor fans over carpet.

Do not remove the plastic pieces placed under legs of furniture until carpet is absolutely dry. Preferably allow several days to allow moisture trapped under the plastic to evaporate therefore preventing rust or permanent furniture stain.

Do not replace furniture or rugs on area cleaned for at least 24 hours.
