80% of the dirt is found in only 20% of your carpet-that's where you walk. Under the furniture is not dirty, but if you want to remove as many items as reasonably possible prior to our arrival, that's fine. In most cases, we will move a sofa, coffee table and two recliners. Any other furniture moving would be an additional fee.
CAUTION! In recent years, stores that sell carpeting have been pushing a style of carpet known as frieze. This carpet shows more wear and cleans so poorly that I would rate it the worst carpeting we have seen in the industry in the last 30 years. This carpet needs cleaning in high traffic area every 6 months.
Drying times vary widely. Furnace fans and ceiling fans reduce drying times. In general, berber carpets take longer to try. You can walk on the carpet immediately; barefoot or indoor footware is preferred.
CAUTION! Portable machines leave more dirt and water in the carpet. This causes oversoaking, longer drying times, and a need for more frequent cleaning. Home-style and rental units produce the same poor results.
