Blue Ribbon Carpet Cleaning and Cleaning Service
To keep your carpet looking its best for as long as possible, we recommend the
following cleaning schedule based on your home’s inhabitants and your climate:
How long will it take to clean my carpet?
Generally about 20 minutes per room; however, that also
depends on the amount of furniture in the room, how dirty
the carpet is, and if there are any stains that need to be
How long will it take for my carpet 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 2–24 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).
Will water ruin my carpet?
Water can damage carpet if it is not properly extracted.
However, the method used by Blue Ribbon removes 95%
of the limited water with our industrial-strength vacuum.
Also, it’s the method that most carpet manufacturers
Will cleaning my carpet with water make 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 do we wait until children and pets can be on the
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 carpet cleaning solutions harm my children or pets?
Our basic cleaning solution is very similar to laundry
detergent. While it is both family and environmentally
friendly, it is always a good idea to limit contact between
the recently cleaned carpet and your children or pets.
Does someone have to be home while you clean our
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.
Can we have our carpet and area rug cleaned at the same
Yes. However, the area rug cannot dry over the wet
carpet. The area rug must be taken to a clean hard
surface to dry.
How do you guarantee customer satisfaction?
We will not be satisfied unless you are! If we need to go
over spots or redo the entire carpet to make you happy
with our service. We will do what we can to make you 100%
