1. Why is it a good idea to have StainShield® applied after the cleaning?
When your carpets and furniture are new they already have a protective coating, which helps to keep soil from permanently attaching to your material. This protective coating also help when you are having your cleaning done by allowing the soil to come out. After we clean you carpets or furniture, it is a good idea to have Stain Shield applied to insure that you have the same protection to help keep your things looking better a lot longer.

2. How often should I have my carpets or furniture cleaned?
On an average you should have your carpets or furniture cleaned every year to a year and a half. Each home has different conditions, that's a better indicator as to when you need work done. When your carpets look soiled to you and your vacuum isn’t helping any more I would say it is time to get them professionally cleaned. By leaving the cleaning too long you risk damaging the material. The sand and dirt sitting in your carpets acts like sandpaper and cuts the fibres whenever you walk on top of it. If you see any damage, clean as soon as possible.

3. How should I prepare for a cleaning?
Our service includes the moving of most furniture, but some items are in permanent locations and too awkward to move, like beds, hutches, piano's etc. We ask you to remove your small breakable items from the area's that are being cleaned, so that we can move as much as needed for you. It is also helpful if the carpets are vacuumed prior to the cleaning but that is not a requirement. We call all our customers the morning of their appointment to let them know the approximate time we will arrive. Thank you for choosing Crystal Clean Services.

4. How long does it take to dry ?
We use the Dry Foam Shampoo cleaning method which means we start off with a lot less water than steam cleaning would. Carpets as well as upholstery are made from many different fibers and have different drying times. If your carpet is heavily soiled, it is likely that we will want to go over it a bit extra to get it clean as possible, and the same goes for furniture. Of course we extract as much moisture as possible but this would still increase the drying time a little. The average drying time is between 4 and 12 hours.

5. What chemicals do you use when cleaning ?
There are four main products that we use for cleaning.

  • Dry Foam Shampoo
    This shampoo has even gone through our own tests to assure that it doesn’t leave any sticky residues or irritate the skin. We have been using Dry Foam Shampoo for 18 years now and have cleaned over 100,000 carpets. We are happy to say that it is very safe for kids and pets.

  • Carpet pre-spray
    Carpet pre-spray, or spotter, is what we use to treat the spots and heavily soiled areas. This spotter removes many spots and has thrilled many customers with the results. Not all stains are removable but we will do our very best. Material safety and data sheet for
    pre-spray.
     
  • Deodorizer
    Meadow fresh carpet and furniture deodorizer freshens up your home with a clean fresh smell. At your request it is added into the cleaning solution so that everywhere we scrub, we are also deodorizing. This is an optional product that we do recommend.

  • Stain Shield
    Stain Shield carpet protector is a spray-on shield that guards your carpets and upholstery from the regular daily grind and spills.
    When you have Stain Shield applied you can rest assured that your carpets and furniture will stay looking better longer. This is an optional product that we do recommend .Just ask your cleaners to apply the Stain Shield once the job is complete. Material safety and data sheet for Stain Shield

6. What areas do you service?

7. Why are area rugs priced differently?
Area rugs are usually a lot more expensive to purchase than traditional wall to wall type carpeting. Area rugs are made from many different types of material and much more delicate to work on. They also have different fibres on the backing which has to be considered. Some of the carpet may have to be scrubbed by hand, such as the fringes and delicate areas. We clean your area rugs in the comfort of your home, and at a better price than most of our competitors.

11. How safe is dry foam for children and pets ?
We have been cleaning carpeting and upholstery since 1986 and have experienced no problems from any of the chemicals that we use. Because we use the Dry Foam Shampoo method, which involves scrubbing and not just spray and rinse, the chemicals we use don't have to be as harsh. Our basic cleaning solution is very similar to laundry detergent. As a general rule, keep your children and pets from lying or playing on wet carpet. Considering we have cleaned over 100,000 carpets we can safely say that Dry Foam Shampoo is extremely safe for children and pets.

12. Do you move the furniture ?

13. What do I do once the cleaning is complete ?
Once your cleaning is complete please use caution while walking from the damp carpet to a smooth surface floor as it may be slippery. When your carpet is totally dry, you may remove the white plastic squares that we have placed under you furniture legs for protection. A good vacuuming at least 24 hours after your carpets or furniture are cleaned is also recommended to top off the job. Thank you for choosing Crystal Clean Services.
