“Why are there spots coming back after my cleaning?”
The name for this occurrence is called “wicking.” With this phenomenon, the spot that has been removed has seeped into the backing of the carpet and possibly the carpet padding. This is common with pet urine, beverages, and anything spilled onto the carpet in high volume. As the carpet is cleaned, the stain is removed from the pile of the carpeting. As the carpet dries, the moisture introduced from the cleaning causes the stain in the backing of the carpet to wick back into the pile. So the bad news is the stain is back. The good news is the stain can probably be removed. Please give us a call and let us know when this happens within 4 days. We will return and do all we can to make it right. To avoid this situation all together, it is best to treat stains appropriately when they first happen.
“Will the cleaning take care of my carpets odors?”
While our thorough cleaning process will remove most if not all of common household odors, some stubborn odors such as pet odors may require the use of a deodorizer. Please address odor issues with us upon arrival so that we can discuss odor treatment options.
“Will the cleaning remove urine stains?”
Urine is more than a stain. It is a bacterium that continues to produce odor, especially once it has been absorbed into or through the carpet pad. There are various treatments available to help with urine issues. Let us know prior to our visit if you have urine stains to be addressed and make sure to point out problem areas with our in-home cleaning technician during the initial walk-through prior to the start of your cleaning. Urine treatments are available at an additional fee per room. Ask us about your options and restrictions.
