Frequently Asked Questions

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommends scheduling professional carpet cleaning every 12-18 months. Even if your carpets appear clean, dirt and allergens can accumulate over time, affecting indoor air quality.

If you regularly vacuum and address stains, you may extend cleaning intervals to every 18 months. However, factors like children, pets, or respiratory conditions such as allergies or asthma may necessitate more frequent cleaning. For detailed insights, check out our blog post titled “How Often You Should Have a Professional Carpet Cleaning?

Carpet cleaning costs typically depend on square footage and additional services like stain removal or Protectant application. Material type, such as wool, may also influence pricing.

At HydroClean Carpet Cleaning, we offer room-based pricing, with a standard-size bedroom (approximately 150 square feet) starting at $58. Take advantage of our discounts for vacant homes, ideal for pre-move-in carpet cleaning.

The duration of carpet cleaning varies based on soil level, equipment, and area size. Generally, cleaning one room takes 20 to 30 minutes, while whole-house cleaning ranges from two to four hours. For a precise estimate, please Contact us directly.

Carpet drying time after steam cleaning hinges on factors like carpet type, pile thickness, humidity, and ventilation. Typically, carpets dry completely within 6 to 12 hours, though thicker or heavily soiled carpets may require up to 24 hours.

To expedite drying, ensure proper room ventilation by opening windows and using fans. You can also accelerate the process with additional fans and a dehumidifier to remove excess moisture from the air.

Absolutely not with HydroClean. This myth originated in the 1960s when many cleaners used product lines derived from coconut oil, leading to rapid re-soiling. However, modern cleaning technology has evolved significantly since then. Today's high-tech products not only keep carpets cleaner but also help extend their lifespan and leave them feeling fresh. However, some cleaning companies may not invest in proper products or methods, potentially leaving residues. At HydroClean, we use only the latest and best cleaning agents available in the industry.

No, steam cleaning does not hasten dirt accumulation. It's among the most effective methods for removing embedded dirt, dust, and debris from carpet fibers. By using hot water and steam, steam cleaning eliminates bacteria, viruses, and dust mites while tackling stubborn stains and odors. While you may initially notice more visible dirt on a clean carpet, this simply highlights the effectiveness of the cleaning process. Proper carpet maintenance, including regular vacuuming, immediate stain treatment, and using doormats, is essential for prolonging carpet freshness.

Proper carpet cleaning won't cause mold growth. Mold thrives in damp environments, but professional cleaners use powerful vacuums to extract excess moisture from carpet fibers. Your carpet should dry thoroughly within a few hours, especially with adequate ventilation. In cases of existing mold growth, reputable cleaners may use specialized agents to eradicate mold and mildew. Working with experienced professionals minimizes the risk of mold growth and ensures thorough cleaning and maintenance.

Absolutely! We exclusively use green, eco-friendly, and non-toxic cleaning products that are safe for your loved ones, including children and pets, as well as the environment.

Yes! Regular cleaning of new carpets can mitigate wear and tear over time. Additionally, new carpets may emit gas for up to two weeks after installation. Professional cleaning helps reduce new carpet odors and potential health impacts on you and your family. Trust HydroClean to keep your new carpets fresh, clean, and safe for all.

We strongly advise against renting a carpet cleaning machine for several reasons:

  1. Rental machines lack the powerful motors and suction needed for a thorough clean.
  2. Residual water and soap left behind can promote mildew growth and rapid re-soiling.
  3. It poses hygiene concerns as rental machines may have been used to clean hazardous substances, potentially introducing contaminants into your home.

When you choose a professional carpet cleaner, you can trust in a safe and thorough clean every time.

You only need to relocate furniture that you want our technicians to clean under. We accommodate larger items like beds or couches and utilize furniture corner guards to protect your property during cleaning.

We kindly request that you clear toys, shoes, rugs, and other items from your carpets and vacuum beforehand to remove excess debris and hair. For more information, please check out our blog post on how to prepare for your carpet cleaning appointment.
