How Often Should I Have My Carpets Professionally Cleaned?
Many carpet manufacturers and the IICRC recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned at least twice per year, depending on how much wear and tear your carpet receives from foot traffic, children, pets, smokers and other contributors to dirt, stains and carpet wear. The following chart, provided by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IIRC), will help you determine how often you’ll need to have your carpets cleaned:
When it’s time to have your carpets professionally cleaned, call MV Cleaning Services. We use low moisture hot water extraction for lifting dirt and stains. This method offers all the benefits of hot water extraction but uses a lot less water. Carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers recommend hot water extraction because it’s the only method that deep cleans the carpets, leaving them fresh and contaminant free. Among the manufacturers that recommend hot water extraction are Shaw Carpet Ind, the largest carpet manufacturer in the world. DuPont and many other manufacturers actually require the hot water extraction method for carpet cleaning to honor their warranties. Many carpeting trade unions also recommend hot water extraction, including the Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), California Fabric Institute (CFI) and the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA).
MV Cleaning Services uses truck-mounted systems that heat the water to 240 degrees whenever possible to kill dust mites, remove allergens, lift dirt and stains and neutralize odors, including pet odors. For condos, high rise apartments, high rise office buildings and other places where the hoses from truck-mounted systems won’t reach, we use portable cleaning units.
MV Cleaning Services technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and are specially trained to break down and remove tough stains such as coffee, rust, paint, oil and grease, ink and pet stains. Please specify your special stain needs, so that our technician will be prepared with the best cleaning agents to accommodate your needs.
