Post Cleaning Instructions

Post Cleaning Instructions – Calvert County

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in your cleaning needs. I trust that we were able to achieve maximum soil removal, maximum spot removal, and that we did it in a courteous, efficient and timely manner. If you have any comments on our service please contact us

1. Please do not slip and fall.
Damp carpet can be slippery. Please be careful when using stairs and also when walking from the freshly cleaned carpet to any hard surface, such as vinyl or tile. Your shoes will be damp and you could fall. It is best to stay off of the carpet for at least 2-6 hours after cleaning if possible. Also, damp carpet can pull dirt off the soles of shoes, especially dark sole shoes. Please keep children and pets off damp carpet until it dries.

2. Warm moving air dries carpet quickly.
Moving air dries carpet quicker. The boundary layer of air, the few inches above the carpet, is usually high in humidity as the carpet is drying. In the winter or cold days, please turn on the heater. Warm air holds more moisture and dries carpet quicker. On hot humid days, you may want to use the air conditioning, if available, to create dryer air and air movement. Otherwise, open windows and doors and have fans blowing on the carpet. Ceiling fans should always be turned on blowing down, no matter what weather.

3. Try to keep traffic off the carpet for at least 2-4 hours.
After we are done cleaning, the carpet fibers are left standing up; much like it was from the factory. Heavy traffic will simply lay the fiber back down. This may also increase the dry time.

4. If soil protection is applied
For maximum results, the soil protection should be allowed to dry before heavy traffic is allowed on the carpet. Also, we prefer that exposed skin, such as feet and pets be kept off until dry.
