Frequently Asked Questions
As a client, you may have questions about how we provide our service. Here are some of the questions that our carpet cleaning technicians usually get, along with their answers. If you don’t see your answer here please phgone us on 07 3184 4008 or visit our contact page.
Why Do I Need Professional Carpet Cleaning?
Professional carpet cleaners use high-quality cleaning equipment to take the dirt out from deep within the carpet. This is more effective than vacuuming or DIY scrubbing to remove dirt from the carpet.
What Is Dry Carpet Cleaning?
Dry carpet cleaning is a method used for carpets that have light to medium dirt levels. It uses little to no moisture, which is why the drying time is very fast. The carpets can be walked upon almost immediately after you finished cleaning them.
What Is Steam Cleaning?
Steam cleaning, also referred to as hot water extraction, delivers hot water to the carpet in the form of steam. This will reach deeper into the fibres of the carpets or fabric, allowing us to efficiently remove microbes and allergens. As moisture is used, drying time may take up to 4 hours.
How Long Does Carpet Cleaning Take?
This depends on the size of the cleaning task. A full house cleaning job should take around 3 hours. At WOW Carpet Cleaning Brisbane, we never work past 4 hours, unless the cleaning task is particularly challenging.
Can You Remove Every Stain?
Most of the stains we deal with will come out. The only ones that may pose an exception are stains that have dye in them. If the stain is not treated as soon as possible, then removing it might prove challenging.
How Often Should I Clean My Carpets?
This will mostly depend on your home’s capacity. For example, if you have children or pets, you should clean the carpets every 1-2 months. If not, professional cleaning every 4-6 months should be enough.
Will You Also Move My Furniture?
Yes, we can help you move your pieces of furniture around, per request. With that in mind, we will not move fragile items such as china cabinets, fish tanks, or water beds. If you have any pieces of furniture that are fragile and delicate, you may want to move them away from the carpet beforehand.
Do You Also Offer Pest Control?
Yea, we can help with pest control all year round, and it is not limited to your carpets. Whether you have a problem with ants, termites, spiders, rodents, fleas, or bed bugs, we can help you out.
Do You Also Clean Upholstery?
Yes, we can also help you with our upholstery cleaning services. Upholstery draws dust and breeds the same kind of bacteria, which is why it requires cleaning every 1-2 years. Usually, at WOW Carpet Cleaning Brisbane, we use hot water extraction to clean upholstery – but we can change our method based on the fabric of the upholstery.
Will Carpet Cleaning Also Remove Odours?
Yes, carpet cleaning will also take care of unwanted odours. Some stubborn odours, such as the ones caused by pets, can linger – but we can still recommend some deodorizers to help you out.
