How much will it cost‌?

Would you buy the poorest quality carpet available for your home‌? Of course not. You wouldn't get a quality, long lasting carpet if you did that. Why settle for the cheapest priced cleaning of such a quality item. In the end, low priced, low quality cleaning, will actually damage a fine quality carpet.

Our prices are based on the size of the area being cleaned, and the amount of furniture required to be moved. Call us and we can usually give you an accurate no obligation estimate on the phone.

What Type of Equipment do you use‌?

We've invested in the very best state of- the- art van powered truck mounts. That's right, our vans V-8 engine powers our cleaning machine. This machine, "The Butler System" is the Cadillac of machines. There are different grades of machinery with different results. Our high temperature cleaning solutions clean better and rinse better. We carry our own tanks of softened water. Soft water cleans better with an added benefit of less cleaning agent needed. Different size vacuum pumps are capable of faster drying. We ordered the oversized vacuum pump for our machine since we also service water damaged carpets which require higher air flow capacity. Even the right equipment that is not regularly or properly maintained will cause problems. Poor maintenance or poor cleaning of the vacuums in-line filter system will leave carpets too wet. We have two in-line filter systems for our vacuum pump. Dust, carpet fibers, pet hair will fill these in-line vacuum filters, sometimes quickly. We can easily replace our filter quickly to provide maximum air flow for every job. We have high standards of maintenance for our equipment to give you the best results.

How long will it take to clean my carpet‌?

On average, it will take approximately 20 minutes per room. This time can vary greatly depending on the amount of furniture to be moved, how soiled the carpet is, and any necessary spot removal treatments.


Will water damage my carpet‌?

Water can damage carpet if it is not properly extracted. However, the method used by A-1 Home and Carpet Care removes 95% of the limited water with our industrial-strength vacuum. Also, it’s the method that most carpet manufacturers recommend.


How long will it take to dry?

Drying time depends on humidity levels, airflow to the room(s) cleaned, and the type of carpet. In general, turning on your air conditioning or heating system (depending on the time of year and your location) will help speed the process. While it typically takes 2–12 hours for the carpet to dry, you can walk on it as soon as we are finished (just remember to remove street shoes first to avoid re-soiling).


I have heard that cleaning my carpet makes it soil faster‌

The problem results from residues being left in the carpet which attract dirt. The modern methods we use rinse virtually all of the cleaning agents out of the carpet so it will not attract dirt.


How long will I have to wait before I can walk on my carpets‌?

The carpet may be walked on with clean feet or indoor shoes immediately after cleaning; however, we recommend limiting activity on the carpet to this foot traffic until it is completely dry.


Will the cleaning agents harm my pets or children‌?



Do I need to move my furniture‌?

We are professionally trained to move your furniture, and return it to its rightful place when cleaning is completed. We do suggest you remove items off of your furniture like electronics, plants, lamps, and breakable items. We will move most furniture that can be safely moved. There are several items we will not move, including: pianos, electronics, china cabinets, waterbeds, some large beds, dressers with mirrors, pool tables, etc. We can identify anything we feel is to fragile to move during the cost estimate process.


Do I need to be home while my carpet is being cleaned‌?

It is not necessary that you be home while your carpet is cleaned because we are thoroughly trained professionals you can trust. In order to provide the best possible service, we do recommend that someone be home before we begin cleaning to discuss any specific needs or areas of concern regarding the care of your carpet


How do you guarantee satisfaction‌?

We are happy to work with you to correct any situation that may arise. In some cases this can mean spot cleaning specific areas of concern or even completely re-cleaning the areas in question. In the end, we’re not satisfied until you are.
