Our $50K powerful, truck-mounted vacuum system extracts most of the moisture from your carpet, but it may still be damp to the touch. It’s okay to walk on it, just not in your street shoes. You can accelerate the drying time with fans or air conditioning. Just be sure to leave the protective pads in place until the carpet and furniture are completely dry to avoid any possible transfer of color. And be careful not to slip when leaving damp, carpeted areas.
Leading carpet manufacturers recommend you have a true professional use hot water extraction / steam cleaning to clean your carpets every 12-18 months. Also, if carpet dry cleaning was the better option, those manufacturers would say so. They do not benefit from telling you otherwise.
Carpet dry cleaning companies often try to glorify what it is they do, but they basically use one of two methods:
1. They spray your carpet with a chemical solution and then buff over it with a rotary machine and bonnet, telling you the dirt will transfer to their bonnet–WRONG. Not only is this totally inefficient, but it will also leave quite a bit of residue in your carpet.
2. They sprinkle a damp, powdery substance all over your carpet and then grind the powder into the carpet, hoping your dirt will somehow magically attach itself to their powder. Then, they use a vacuum to supposedly get all of the dirt/powder out–WRONG AGAIN! Not only will this not get the dirt out of your carpets, but you will be left with two abrasives at the base of your carpet…another reason why leading carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction / carpet steam cleaning over dry cleaning.

Don’t Expose Yourself to Additional Chemicals–Stay Away from Carpet Dry Cleaning!
According to a WebMD article, the solvent used by 85% of U.S. dry cleaners known as PERC (perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene) has been declared a “likely human carcinogen” by the National Academy of Sciences.
Chemical dry cleaning companies are popping up everywhere. Why? Because Carpet Dry Cleaning is an easy business to get into. It takes little financial investment, little training, and no expertise.
A wise clients once told us, “The most expensive isn’t always the best, but the cheapest is always the most expensive.”
Proper care and maintenance of your carpet will extend its useful life and preserve its appearance for years and years. Failure to take care of it will result in premature wear. Additionally clean carpets contribute to a healthy indoor environment. Dirty carpets can be unhealthy indeed.
Like all textiles, carpets will eventually show signs of wear. The wear creates an illusion of soiling, which often causes frustration and misunderstanding between the homeowners and carpet care experts. Even though a carpet has been cleaned, it does not mean the traffic areas will look clean. Traffic areas are those places where people are constantly walking or working. This situation creates what is called "traffic lane gray".
