Carpet Cleaning FAQs

1) Is Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning fully licensed and insured?
Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning is an authentic carpet cleaning business; and yes we possess all necessary credentials to put your mind at ease from licensing, to insurance, and everything in between.
2) How do carpets get professionally cleaned?
In the carpet cleaning industry, there are several methods and techniques used to get your carpets cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized. Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning is certified to conduct all methods of cleaning. First we evaluate your carpet to determine the most ideal method for your carpets. The carpet fibers, types of stains, odors, and volume of underlining dirt and debris are all considered to ensure your carpets get a safe, ultimate level of clean.
3) How long does a professional carpet cleaning take?
There are a few things that play into the calculation of time needed to complete the service, such as the prep-work, square footage and other details. But on average it generally takes approximately 20 minutes per room.
4) How soon do recently cleaned carpets dry?
It takes approximately 2-6 hours to dry thoroughly. After we have done the final water extraction, carpets will be damp to the touch. To estimate how long it will take for the carpets to dry depends on weather conditions, room temperature, air flow, and overall condition of the carpet.
5) Are the protection treatments and cleaning methods used by Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning safe?
Ensuring safety is our first priority; Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning uses detergents and treatments that are safe on the environment, people, and pets, but still effective on cleaning stains, odors, and debris.
6) Will investing in a professional carpet cleaning service deteriorate the integrity of my carpet fibers?
This is a common misconception, but not in the least. Dirt, grit, and grime will still penetrate deep in the fibers, no matter how diligent you are with vacuuming over time. The more you vacuum and maintain your carpets, the less filth it will accrue, allowing you to only need a professional cleaning once a year. The build up in your carpet combined with foot traffic creates friction that breaks down your carpet’s fibers. As a result major carpet mill experts strongly recommend and encourage carpet owners to invest in a professional cleaning annually, even if the carpets appear to be pristine condition. If necessary, the carpets can be cleaned more frequently.
7) Do the procedures used by Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning over saturate the carpet backing and padding?
Our team is fully trained and avoids oversaturation despite the use of liquids during the carpet cleaning service. Heavy equipment suctions the excess moisture during the course of the procedure to keep your carpet backing and padding safe from any over saturation.
8) Are stubborn pet stains and odors removed from my carpet with your carpet cleaning service?
If pet stains and odors have become a challenge for you to remove, Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning can effectively lift the stains and neutralize odors with our special formulas and techniques.
9) Why do the baseboards and under doorways develop black lines?
All carpet is susceptible to the black looking lines, but is usually more obvious on light colored carpet. Filtration or what is also known as soiling happens when air passes through the carpet and when it attempts to get through the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or under door frames, the soil is pushed around these areas and over time the black lines occur. You can minimize filtration soiling by simply vacuuming and wiping the edges of the carpets on a regular basis, however, please be careful as if you are not cautious working around the tack-strip found along the edge of the carpets, it could pick your fingers.
10) I heard of “clean to the standards”, but what is it exactly?
Between carpet manufacturing industry organizations, carpet cleaning industry organizations, and the federal government, a set of standards for carpet cleaning was agreed upon and became a general guideline for carpet cleaning procedures. The specific set of these cleaning standards are known in the industry as the CRI standards, which is practiced with all of Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning always treatments. The common steps in the CRI standards include the following:
– Pre-vacuum of carpets.
– Application of pre-treatment of spots, stains, and heavily soiled areas.
– Hot water extraction
– Thorough rinse.
– Furniture moving before and after service.
– Carpets are fully dried within 24 hours.
