Yes. A thorough vacuuming is an essential preparatory step before we steam clean. Its an important first step and can make a big difference in the results.
We use a CRI Green label approved dual motor vacuum cleaner. The airflow and brushes are powered by two separate motors. One motor is devoted to loosening the soil and the other motor is devoted to removing the soil.
In a single motor vacuum, if the brushes require more power due to a deep pile carpet the power is generated by reducing suction. Why is this important? Science tells us we can only pull 14.7lbs of vacuum. Our vacuum cleaners create velocity (fast moving air) to suction the soils from our carpet. When you have a dual motor system it ensures that you maintain the maximum velocity/vacuum and get the most soil removal possible.
Typically, you may walk on them after a few hours, but it may take over night. If you must walk on the carpet while still damp, then try to do so barefoot.
You should wait for the carpet to dry completely before walking with shoes or returning the furniture. If you return the furniture too quickly, there is a danger that you might permanently damage your carpet.

We will move small items out of the way. Very large items we will work around. There may be a small extra charge if there is a lot to be moved around.
Most carpets are cleaned at a per-square-foot rate. Calculate the size of each room by multiplying its width times its length. For stairs, just count the number of stairs.
From the square footage, we will quote you a very competitive price.
