Steam Cleaned Or Dry Cleaned: Which Is Best?

We recommend our steam carpet cleaning service to almost all of our customers. Not only does steam cleaning penetrate the fibres of the carpet for the deepest clean, it also kills any bacteria, mites, and fungus that may be living there. This method guarantees the cleanest, most hygienic results possible while prolonging the life of your carpet. In some circumstances, we will recommend dry cleaning, especially when the carpet must be used immediately after cleaning.

What Should I Expect from A Quality Carpet Cleaning Service?

At BOAS we guarantee the very highest standards of quality carpet cleaning in Perth, during and after every job:

  • A friendly and flexible cleaning service that suits your exact needs and schedule.
  • Expert advice on the best cleaning method for your carpet.

  • The very latest carpet cleaning equipment and methods.
  • Full furniture removal and replacement before and after cleaning.
  • The highest health and safety standards before, during and after the job.
  • Expert advice on carpet maintenance once the job is finished.

How Long Will It Take To Clean My Carpets?

With our latest technology, it really doesn’t take long. A good rule of thumb is to allow about 30 minutes per room. This can vary depending on the size of the room, the amount of furniture to be removed, the age and condition of the carpet, and whether there are stubborn stains we need to deal with. Rest assured that we will get the job done quickly and efficiently so you can use your living space or office as soon as possible.

How Often Should I Have My Carpets Cleaned?

We recommend that you have your carpets professionally steam cleaned once a year. In fact, most carpet manufacturers recommend this too. That said, cleaning requirements can vary significantly from home to home. If you have kids and/or pets you may want to consider cleaning twice a year, while if you live alone or with another adult then once every couple of years may be sufficient. Try to think of it as preventative maintenance. If you feel your carpet is beginning to look a bit shabby or dirty, then it is probably time for a professional steam clean.

Should I Avoid Stepping On My Carpet After Cleaning?

This depends on a number of factors, including cleaning method, humidity, time of year and air flow in the area. If you use our dry cleaning method then you can use your carpet immediately after it is cleaned. After steam cleaning, it can take your carpet anywhere between eight and 24 hours to dry completely, though in most circumstances you can safely walk on it within a couple of hours.

Will All Stains On My Carpet Be Removed?

While our steam cleaning method removes the vast majority of stains, including household spillages such as tea, coffee or red wine, there is an outside chance that some advanced stains that have set may not be entirely removed, especially on older carpets. There are also some substances that may have caused discoloration of your carpet fibres that cannot be treated through cleaning. Our crew will try to identify any problematic stains prior to cleaning and advise on alternative cleaning methods if they are not entirely removed. Regular vacuuming and yearly steam cleaning of your carpets will significantly reduce the chances of stubborn stains setting in.

Is It True That My Carpet Soils Faster After Cleaning?

This can sometimes be the case where lower quality cleaning methods have used that leave behind cleaning agent residue that attracts dirt. Our state-of-the-art equipment, cleaning agents and cleaning methods ensure that no residue is left behind so your carpet looks as good as new for months after cleaning.

Do You Offer Any Other Carpet Cleaning Methods?

In addition to our steam and dry carpet cleaning services, we also offer bonnet carpet cleaning. This method essentially ‘buffs’ your carpet to remove dirt and particles. We recommend this as a useful interim cleaning method that will prolong the life of your carpet without the need to commit to a full clean.

How Important is Vacuuming My Carpet?

Vacuuming your carpet is essential to keep it clean and hygienic while prolonging its life. We recommend that you vacuum your carpets at least once a week with a quality vacuum cleaner. In high traffic areas or rooms where you keep pets, you may want to consider more frequent vacuuming, even as often as once a day.  Remember that slow and steady vacuuming is the way to go to ensure maximum removal of dust and dirt.
