When Do You Need Carpet Cleaning Services?

Carpet cleaning services are required to maintain the hygiene and cleanliness of your carpets. It is recommended that you get your carpets cleaned every 6 to 12 months; these vary depending on the amount of foot traffic and the type of carpeting used.

If you have children or pets in your home, it is advisable to get your carpets cleaned more frequently. Carpets that are not cleaned on a regular basis can harbour dirt, bacteria, and other allergens that can affect indoor air quality and cause health problems. Moreso, if you have recently experienced flooding, you will need the help of a professional to restore your carpets.

In addition to carpet cleaning, you may also need services related to carpet drying, water damage restoration, and new carpet installation, depending on the extent of the damage. 

Additionally, if you notice any stains or spills on your carpet, it is essential to get them cleaned as soon as possible to prevent them from setting in and becoming more difficult to remove, and if you are moving into a new home, it is a good idea to get the carpets professionally cleaned regularly to ensure that they are free from any dirt or allergens left behind by the previous occupants.

Carpet Cleaning Methods

  1. Hot Water Extraction: Also known as steam cleaning, this method involves the use of hot water and cleaning solutions to deep clean the carpet fibres. A high-pressure cleaning tool is used to inject hot water into the carpet fibres and extract it back out, along with the dirt and debris.
  2. Dry Powder: This method involves the use of a dry cleaning powder that is sprinkled onto the carpet and then worked into the fibres using a brush. The powder absorbs the dirt and debris, and it is then vacuumed up along with the powder.
  3. Bonnet Cleaning: This method involves the use of a cleaning solution that is applied to the carpet, and then a rotary machine with a bonnet pad is used to agitate the carpet fibres and extract the dirt and debris.
  4. Encapsulation: Similar to bonnet cleaning, this method involves the use of a cleaning solution that is applied to the carpet, and then a machine with a rotary brush is used to agitate the solution and capture the dirt and debris in an encapsulation agent. The encapsulated dirt is then vacuumed up.
  5. Shampooing: This method involves the use of a foaming shampoo that is applied to the carpet and then worked into the fibres using a rotary machine with a brush. The shampoo is then extracted using a wet vacuum.
  6. Dry Foam: In this method, a foam cleaning solution is applied to the carpet and then worked into the fibres, after which the foam is extracted using a wet vacuum.
  7. Absorbent Pad: This method involves the use of a cleaning solution that is sprayed onto the carpet, and then a machine with an absorbent pad is used to buff the carpet fibres and extract the dirt and debris.
  8. Steam cleaning: This method involves the use of hot water and a cleaning solution that is injected into the carpet fibres using a machine. The dirty water is then extracted.
  9. Rotary Cleaning: The rotary cleaning process involves the use of a machine with a rotating brush head that agitates the carpet fibres and extracts the dirt and debris.

Carpet Cleaning – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How Long Does Carpet Cleaning Take?

In general, a professional carpet cleaning service can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to complete, depending on the scope of the job. For example, a small room with a low-pile carpet may only take 30 minutes to clean, and a large living room with a high-pile carpet may take upwards of six hours for deep cleaning.

Overall, if you’re looking for professional carpet cleaning services, be prepared to set aside some time for the job to be completed properly. The exact amount of time required will depend on several factors, but a reputable carpet cleaning service should be able to provide you with an estimated time frame before beginning the job.

What Is the Best Cleaning Method for Carpet Stains

Carpet stains can be difficult to remove, but with the right products and cleaning methods, you can successfully clean most areas of your carpet. Depending on the type of stain, you may need to try several different methods before finding one that works best for your specific situation. In general, it’s best to start by spot-treating the stain with a product that’s specifically designed for carpet cleaning. If this method doesn’t work, try applying a cleaner that contains both an acid and a surfactant to break down the stain particles.

Do Carpet Cleaning Companies Offer Flea Treatment?

Yes, many carpet and upholstery cleaning companies offer flea treatment services in addition to their standard carpet cleaning services. These services can help remove fleas and their eggs from carpets, upholstery, and other soft surfaces in your home. It’s best to check with your chosen carpet cleaning company to confirm if they offer flea treatment as an additional service.

How Can I Deep Clean My Carpet Myself?

The most effective way to deep clean a carpet is by using a steam cleaner, which uses hot water and detergent to loosen and remove dirt from the carpet fibres. Vacuuming can also help to suck up dust and debris from the surface of your carpet. For more stubborn stains, you can try using a chemical-based spot cleaner or a mixture of white vinegar and water to help remove them. It’s important to test any cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous patch first to make sure it doesn’t harm your carpets.

What Things To Avoid When Cleaning Your Carpet After a Flood

When cleaning your carpet after a flood, there are some things you should avoid doing.

Don’t walk on your carpet until it’s completely dry. This can cause the carpet to stretch or tear.

Second, don’t use harsh chemicals or cleaners. These can damage the carpet and cause it to degrade over time. Also, avoid using odour masking products as these could leave your house or you oblivious to mould or mildew growth.

How Do Professionals Clean Carpets at Home?

Professional carpet cleaners deep clean carpets differently than at-home cleaning methods. Firstly, they usually use more powerful equipment that can reach deeper into the carpet fibres to lift and remove dirt particles. They’ll often also add pre-treatment solutions before beginning the process, which can help break down tough stains. Lastly, professional carpet cleaners have access to a large variety of cleaning solutions, allowing them to specifically target different types of soils and stains. This gives them the ability to provide your carpets with a deeper clean than most at-home methods.

Can Professional Cleaners Remove Cat Urine?

Yes, professional carpet cleaners can remove cat urine from carpets. They will use a special cleaning solution that is designed to break down the proteins found in pet urine so that they can be quickly and effectively removed. Professional carpet cleaners may also have access to specialised equipment that can help identify areas of the carpet that are particularly hard hit with pet stains. This gives them the ability to give those areas a deeper clean and remove even stubborn cat urine odours.

Are Professional Carpet Cleaners Worth It?

Yes, professional carpet cleaners are worth it as they provide an effective way to deep clean carpets that may not be possible with at-home methods.

What is the carpet water damage restoration cost Melbourne?

The cost of carpet water damage restoration in Melbourne can vary depending on the extent of the damage, the type of carpets, and size of the area affected. Professional services usually cost more than DIY methods but offer a much higher quality level of restoration. The average cost for carpet water damage restoration in Melbourne is around $200 – $500. This may vary depending on if you need the services within or outside business hours.
