While having your carpet and furniture cleaned removes pollutants and makes for a more friendly breathing environment, It would be irresponsible for us to say that this will (or will not) help with allergies.
9. Does cleaning your carpet make it wear out faster?
No, actually dirt acts as an abrasive when trapped in your carpet or fabrics and should be removed to reduce wear.
10. Does our process restore the original feel of your carpet?
Our processes leave your carpet fresh, clean, residue free and soft to the touch but 'original' might be hard to accomplish!
11. Should you have a fabric protector applied after cleaning?
Yes, most carpet manufacturers recommend that you reapply protector after professional cleaning to help restore the original stain resistance. Some manufacturers even require it as part of the warranty on the carpet.
12. Which provides better indoor air quality: hardwood, or carpet?
Carpet actually acts as a type of 'filter' often effectively trapping pollutants which are then removed by - you guessed it - professional carpet cleaning!
As long as a regular cleaning schedule is maintained, carpeting often provides better indoor air quality than hardwood.
