It is very important that you allow the carpets to dry thoroughly after cleaning or the fibers will get dirty again very quickly. Wait a good 24 hours for the carpet to dry after steam cleaning if at all possible. See below for how to get the carpet to dry faster.
While our Winchester carpet cleaning company can't guarantee that our steam cleaning will get rid of all your fleas, it does significantly help. The problem with fleas is that their eggs get carried around all over your house and their life-cycles are so short.
Regular vacuuming will remove fleas and the steam cleaning will kill fleas, but we recommend that you get additional help from a professional exterminator and treat your pets for fleas as well. We can tell you that the steam cleaning will remove mildew and mold spores in your carpets.
Carpet manufacturers recommend the steam cleaning process over shampooing because it works better. While every household treats their carpeting different, a once per year carpet cleaning should be all you need. Keep up with the vacuuming and don't let the kids or pets trample mud around and you should be good.
We would prefer that you vacuum before we handle your carpet cleaning but it isn't absolutely necessary. You just get the best results by removing the carpet debris first.
Carpets get dirty again quickly after cleaning if people don't allow them to dry first. Or, it could just be bad carpet cleaning service. Call our Winchester carpet cleaning pros and allow enough drying time to get the longest-lasting results.
