Carpet Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions
Is steam cleaning the best method?
Hot water steam extraction is still the most preferred method of effectively cleaning your carpets. However, Accredited offers all major carpet cleaning methods and will be happy to advise you.
Do you guarantee removal of all stains?
Unfortunately not because products such as bleach remove carpet dye permanently and spills not treated quickly can also become permanent stains.Off-the-supermarket-shelf products and inexperienced cleaners also cause permanent stains and irreversible damage.If we believe a stain is irreversible, we will tell you upfront.
How often should I clean my carpets?
How long will it take for my carpets to dry?
Do you offer other terms of cleaning?
People say that after carpet is cleaned it re-soils very quickly?
This is only true for carpets ‘cleaned’ by those who rush in and out and do not follow professionally cleaning procedures. We use neutralising chemicals so that your carpet will be left residue free. Not only will your carpet stay cleaner, it will last longer.
Should I have a protector applied to my carpets?
Do green, eco-friendly products actually clean well?
Our eco-friendly green products clean exceptionally well. If it is necessary to use a more powerful cleaning product, we have other exceptionally effective products that are also safe and non-toxic. (remembering that the toxins in your carpets are and have been tested to be 4 x more toxic than human waste.)
Do you move furniture?
Are you licensed and insured?
Roland, the owner/operator is fully licensed under IICRC and NSW work cover. Our insurance is always up to date. This protects you and us.
Are you a certified cleaning technician?
Yes I am certified under the IICRC. This is not a common question asked but should be. Knowing that only 10% of the industry is trained, you should be asking every cleaner if they are certified. They need to provide their card on site.
